"Looks like you guys just fixed the station," astronaut Jack Fischer radioed from Houston. "It's been like living on the set of Apollo 13 the past few days. NASA does impossible pretty darn well, so congratulations to the whole team."

Which one says 4 out of 5 to avoid having to say 8 out of 10? Everyone knows 8 out of 10 won't sell.

If I was going to fake a moon mission, I would at least fake a successful moon mission.

Maybe it was supposed to be successful but they had technical problems with the moon and had to abort the landing part of the show.

Such drama! Such excitement! Such science! Such engineering! Surely the rest of the Galaxy trembles in fear at the thought of balding, middle-aged apes of such technological prowess!

So why the fark do they have a picture of a toothbrush laying on a wooden table on the Earth in that article?

A recently polished wooden table reflecting a normal on-the-ground room?

The picture is SOOOOOOOO faked.

Couldn't they just pop the faceshield real quick and blow the chips out? Just for a sec. Bruce Willis would do it.

Also, is there any concern about where the metal shavings came from? It's not like they send extra mass up there just to shave off into the bolt holes.

They're just hanging in empty space. Once they look down and realize where they are, they'll fall.

...But what if they want you to think that they didn't go to the moon, despite the evidence, so they can cover up where they get their mind control ingredients from.

Moon dust is both a fantastic portal conductor and highly carcinogenic when snorted.

ACME is a style of thread on a bolt. Interesting that it is used on an attaching fastener. ACME is common on jacks and vises, stuff that is screwed and unscrewed often.

Well, the power units ARE designed to be replaceable.

Wonder what metal the screws/bolts are made of..Nothing that could become magnetized right?

Also used because it put your business at the front of the phone book.

(For those of you who don't know, back before cell phones and internet, there was this brick made of sheets of paper with the phone numbers of all the people and businesses in town.)

It's true! And we used them for feats of strength which were really just feats of physics but would probably impress drunk chicks anyway.
