    bingo, that building was the scene of a suicide bomb and i bet 4chan knew of titanpointe also, stupid NSA routes the connections in these parts for "national security" and fun fact underneath the WTC was a tank of deadly phosgene, NY decided no map of the NYC underground could be made until the hurricane flooded a substation.

    Question: Is the building PRECISELY 550', or is it 555'? Because: 555' x 12" = ........wait for it...................6,660 Inches! I know this because the documentary, Secrets In Plain Sight, tells us that the Washington Monument is 555' tall which equals 6,660", and stands as a phallic symbol in the center of the vesica piscis.....yes, it's a penis & vagina thing going back to ancient Egypt----New World Order / Illuminati / Federal Reserve Banker stuff.
