the astronauts tucked into

"Tucked into?" That's got to be the most archaic thing I've heard in a long time.

The "Moon": A Ridiculous Liberal Myth


It amazes me that so many allegedly "educated" people have fallen so quickly and so hard for a fraudulent fabrication of such laughable proportions. The very idea that a gigantic ball of rock happens to orbit our planet, showing itself in neat, four-week cycles -- with the same side facing us all the time -- is ludicrous. Furthermore, it is an insult to common sense and a damnable affront to intellectual honesty and integrity. That people actually believe it is evidence that the liberals have wrested the last vestiges of control of our public school system from decent, God-fearing Americans (as if any further evidence was needed! Daddy's Roommate? God Almighty!)

Documentaries such as Enemy of the State have accurately portrayed the elaborate, byzantine network of surveillance satellites that the liberals have sent into space to spy on law-abiding Americans. Equipped with technology developed by Handgun Control, Inc., these satellites have the ability to detect firearms from hundreds of kilometers up. That's right, neighbors .. the next time you're out in the backyard exercising your Second Amendment rights, the liberals will see it! These satellites are sensitive enough to tell the difference between a Colt .45 and a .38 Special! And when they detect you with a firearm, their computers cross-reference the address to figure out your name, and then an enormous database housed at Berkeley is updated with information about you.

Of course, this all works fine during the day, but what about at night? Even the liberals can't control the rotation of the Earth to prevent nightfall from setting in (only Joshua was able to ask for that particular favor!) That's where the "moon" comes in. Powered by nuclear reactors, the "moon" is nothing more than an enormous balloon, emitting trillions of candlepower of gun-revealing light. Piloted by key members of the liberal community, the "moon" is strategically moved across the country, pointing out those who dare to make use of their God-given rights at night!

Yes, I know this probably sounds paranoid and preposterous, but consider this. Despite what the revisionist historians tell you, there is no mention of the "moon" anywhere in literature or historical documents -- anywhere -- before 1950. That is when it was initially launched. When President Josef Kennedy, at the State of the Union address, proclaimed "We choose to go to the moon", he may as well have said "We choose to go to the weather balloon." The subsequent faking of a "moon" landing on national TV was the first step in a long history of the erosion of our constitutional rights by leftists in this country. No longer can we hide from our government when the sun goes down.

How could there be no cheese on the moon menu?

Every knows it's impossible the space suits hold up against the ass-mospheric pressure on the moon. If Armstrong came back with hemorrhoids hanging out his shorts we might believe it!

Well, duh! That would be like bringing coals to Newcastle.

Is it me or does it look like Armstrong is taking a leak in the picture?

Is it just me, or do the old school space suits still look a hell of a lot cooler than the newer ones?

"The collection, to be auctioned on September 4, is expected to fetch a minimum of 10,000 pounds"

Wow, that's pretty heavy. I wouldn't have thought that the collection would have weighed that much!

It's just a functional design step to powered armor.

"a tape log featuring the doomed 1970 Apollo 13 mission." I consider Apollo 13 a failed mission. Doomed would be more applicable to Challenger or Columbia.

I dunno man, A hell of a lot cooler? I think that's the nostalgia talkin'. They look pretty close to each other, honestly.

I kinda like the newer ones; not a big fan of the tubes sticking everywhere out of the old ones, and there's a little bit less of an "arms coming out of your chest" look.
The helmet looks a little less bulbous in comparison to the rest of the suit, too.
But like I said, I think they look fairly similar.

Watched a documentary recently that made the case pretty convincingly that the ovewhelming physics involved in escaping Earths gravity pretty much proves that not only the Moon landing, but the entire space program itself, was nothing but an elaborate hoax.

I forget which network I saw it on.

It was DirecTv, so probably one of those channels up in the 200s.

Scientists also conclusively proved that it was impossible to break the sound barrier.

Gawdzila: I dunno man, A hell of a lot cooler? I think that's the nostalgia talkin'.


That's entirely possible. It's all a matter of opinion anyway. They're both cool as fark, and still fairly similar, as you said.

Gawdzila: I kinda like the newer ones; not a big fan of the tubes sticking everywhere out of the old ones,


I think that's a big part of what I like. I'm a big fan of the pieces and parts stuck all over look, as opposed to the slick modern look. A similar example is that I like the look of the old brass and canvas diving suits as opposed to the newer diving equipment (not that it's not also cool).

Given 1960's technology, it would have been a wonder if they really did land on the moon and return. Even with today's technology, it's a feat.

I am a fan, yes.

I meant that it'll look cool again when they need to add shiat and don't know where to put it, like feeding tubes and jet packs. Then they'll slim that out again, and then it's servo joints and ceramite and horns and pain inductors.

So would a steampunk space-suit be like an old style diving suit, except with a really REALLY long hose dipping back into the atmosphere for the air?

I like the modern look. I'm a fan of this new suit design:

In part because it brings us one step closer to this:

The real Moon landing hoax? Tang

As a child I was led to believe they were still drinking that crap during the Apollo missions but see grapefruit and orange grapefruit drinks were on the menu instead.

And where are the Space Food Sticks?

TL/DR: If NASA were willing to fake their accomplishments, they'd have another one by now.
