“Why is the Tower of Pisa leaning?"/"Because it had better reflexes than the Twin Towers.”

The Leaning Tower of Pisa (in Pisa, Italy) tilts. The World Trade Center’s Twin Towers (in New York City) were both destroyed on September 11, 2001.

Wikipedia: Leaning Tower of Pisa
The Leaning Tower of Pisa (Italian: torre pendente di Pisa), or simply, the Tower of Pisa (torre di Pisa [ˈtorre di ˈpiːza; ˈpiːsa][1]), is the campanile, or freestanding bell tower, of Pisa Cathedral. It is known for its nearly four-degree lean, the result of an unstable foundation.

Wikipedia: World Trade Center (1973-2001)
The original World Trade Center (WTC) was a large complex of seven buildings in the Financial District of Lower Manhattan in New York City. It opened on April 4, 1973, and was destroyed in 2001 during the September 11 attacks. At the time of their completion, the Twin Towers—the original 1 World Trade Center (the North Tower) at 1,368 feet (417 m); and 2 World Trade Center (the South Tower) at 1,362 feet (415.1 m)—were the tallest buildings in the world.
