    The roll of paper would be much effective if the bottom end was covered. Because the airflow went to opposite direction the heat go as well

    The added oxygen causes the flame to burn hotter than it would was just the paper , this experiment was made to try and see if paper can melt metal by itself. So disappointed

    This video itself should be conclusive enough to debunk any and every 9/11 conspiracies. Heat and temperature use two different measurements. BTU's matter more than burning temperature.
    It's like trying to say "Oh, but this 10 gallon per minute hose is better than this 2,000 PSI pressure washer."

    Don't know if you did it but your next video should be comparing the different types of Fire traditional paper or wood, gas electric etc.. Do controlled test like throwing like a hot dog or something in there and seeing which Fire Burns it the fastest put it into a controlled room and see which room it's completely charred the fastest or which fire chart the most in a certain amount of time and last test like which gets the room completely on fire the fastest to determine which fire is the most dangerous
