Was browsing the web when i saw this pic.
http://www.plaguepuppy.net/public_html/gallery/xrollingcloudfromtower.jpg

At first it looks innocent, just a pic of 9/11 when the tower collapses, what I dont get is the man on the building in the foreground, whats he doing?
If he wanted to see the towers hed be round the other side of the building, and howd he get there in the first place, theres a massive drop below and above him, and all the windows are shut.
im just wondering what he's doing as it looks odd from my perspective.

The guy on the green building?

I'd say he was just about to get his ass covered in dust and stuff!

Seriously, he could of closed the windows on his way out!?

Maybe he was on the roof or somewhere else close by and jumped down to where he is when he saw the tower start to come down?

Would you jump from a roof onto a tiny ledge with a massive drop beneath you, the window's defintely closed and it just doesnt make sense why he'd be there at all.

Hannah, look very closely at the middle top window, he is standing on the window ledge.

Maybe the ledge was bigger than it looks? Maybe he was SpiderMan? I have no idea.  Smile

If you are talking about the shape on the greenish building a quick photoshop blow up makes it look more like someone standing on a ledge I can not tell if the window is open or not.

I would hve to play with the photo more to sharpen it up a bit

Window definitely looks closed (can see the vertical window frame), looks like he/she is bending down talking to someone, looking at something?
No sign of any ladders or door or anything, looks to be a commercial building so im not too sure if you could open the window or not.
Saying that why would you climb onto a ledge unprotected with a huge drop below you, and why on that side of the building, since the Twin towers are on the other side..

On an even closer inspection, it has to be a person of some kind! I would of thought so anyway.

I thought it was a man until we zoomed in on it.

I think it might be an air conditioner with diagonal braces below it. The sun is to our right in the big picture, the shadows would be correct for my guess.

Either that or one of the man's legs is not attached to his body.

Also if you look at the Jeep/Rover looking black car parked in a line on the right, he is boxed in by the silver car on the left and the dark car on the right...

Just an observation...  Innocent

Here's my theory. The man worked in the office whose window faces the ledge. He stood on the window sill and pulled himself up onto the roof for a better view of the burning towers. Note that (1) the window sill seems high enough in relation to the roof that a reaonably limber person could use it for roof access, and (2) the buildings to the north probably would not have blocked the man's view of the burning upper stories of the WTC.
The South Tower collapsed a few second before this picture was taken, and huge smoke clouds began billowing toward the roof where the man stood. He jumped back onto the ledge, which probably is wider than it seems in the picture, frantically trying to get back into the building. While it's hard to tell for sure, it looks as if his legs are bent, as if he's just jumped down from a height of a few feet; most likely, he hung at arm's length from the edge of the roof and dropped to the ledge.
One thing that would work havoc with my theory is a closed window. Certainly, the man would not have closed the window behind him when he climbed onto the roof.* Try as I might, however, I just can't tell if the window's shut, so I'll say that it is open and the theory is still possible. Actually, even if the window really is closed, it might have been shut by another person in the office who wasn't aware that the man was on the roof.

IF it is a person (and it looks so to me), I see nothing mysterious. Many people are mesmerised by strange and/or unexpected events and can't help but pause to view, or even go out of their way to get a better look-see.

Look at everybody who slows down their vehicle to peer at a traffic crash or an emergency situation. Look at the people so baffled by the tsunami event and stood still to watch instead of attempting to flee. Not mysterious at all, taking into account human nature. Regards...Jack
