How is this paranormal?

They're trying to figure out if Apollo 15 landed on the Moon?

I've never seen the show. What are the odds that they follow science vs play up the paranormal?

Sybarite: How is this paranormal?


It's SyFy. The folks who think that wrestling, "Ghost Hunters", "Geek Antiques Roadshow", and net-sourced CGI-laden Lorenzo Lamas flicks qualify as "speculative fiction."

Fark SyFy.

Thank goodness I'm not the only person appalled by that.

what about all the subsequent times they went up to the moon? What about the lunar lander they put on there? Were those fake as well?
 
2010-11-29 01:08:43 PM  
Can we just agree the moon landing was a hoax and move on? The evidence is overwhelming.

p.s. the two split-tails on that show are smoking hot.

This show will finally put an end to all the questions.

No wait. Closing my eyes and imagining nekked ladies will provide more insight than this garbage.
 
2010-11-29 01:10:54 PM  
Even without seeing the episode I can already say that the Mythbusters episode on the lunar hoax was better.

From the preview, it looks like they see if they can fake the video using technology from the 60's. I guess that would be kind of interesting, but it's just going to reinforce the Moon landing "truthers", which is A Bad Thing©.

It's true. I can't imagine watching a show like this. It can either end in one of two ways.

"Well, we weren't able to replicate it... but that doesn't mean they couldn't have. Inconclusive."

"Well, we were able to replicate it... but that doesn't mean they did. Inconclusive."

9 seconds before the video ends. For the those of you who don't feel like wasting time looking at a commercial.

Do those things really work? Because I know it sounds kinda "out there," but I've seen those commercials where a guy puts one on and then other people try to tip him over but they can't. How would they even go around faking that? Some of those people trying to knock him over were pretty big dudes.

The only reason he punched that journalist is because he knew he was caught in a lie.

Why do so many people have so much vested in proving that we didn't send people to the moon? It's like a life-and-death thing with them, and they don't have a leg to stand on, so what drives this nonsense?

impaler: I've never seen the show. What are the odds that they follow science vs play up the paranormal?


I'm a skeptic, so I've watched the show in a "know thine enemy" capacity. It's definitely not as bad as Ghost Hunters, but they do tend to play up the paranormal. They debunk most of the videos they examine (I've only seen 4 or 5 episodes).

The women are HOT though.

Not sure if serious. But if you are, here's how it's done. Watch the commercial again. They always pull on the arm where merely moving the their arms by an inch either way determines if the person is able to keep balance or not. It's an old snake-oil salesman / magician trick. It's just a matter of leverage.

I agree. Ghosts are real. Don't believe anyone went to the moon. 9/11 and vaccinations I'm not sure about. All I know for sure is when I was growing up nobody was allergic to peanuts. Now peanut dust kills people and you can't even have a bag on an airplane. Something caused that.
 
2010-11-29 01:21:11 PM  
who the fark cares if its fake or not? seriously, what will be the backlash if the moon landing is proven true or false? I haven't heard of any news of future trips or a "moon base" being built. time spent on validating or falsifying the moon landing will be time wasted on a irrelevant topic were greater minds could have spent time pursuing something productive like curing cancer.

You know, if I got to walk on the Moon I'd be so stoked that I'd probably just go around punching people for the lulz once I got back.

If you're going to confront someone and call them a coward and a liar you have to expect one of their possible reactions is going to be to punch-a-size your face.

It's fun to speculate. But when it comes into the realm of questioning the honesty and integrity of someone revered as a national hero for a few decades then you've got to tread lightly.

Yep. That huge rocket thing they built that went whoosh into the sky was definitely just a $50 billion* decoy to throw people off the scent.

I would totally pay for cable again if I could get a show that consisted of nothing but Buzz Aldrin punching whack jobs in the nose. It could be like a game show... the kook who lasts the longest before getting punched wins. The rest of them get sent to a psych ward.

Ghosts making people allergic to peanuts as revenge for faking the moon landings?

When they do the demo at trade shows, expos, and the like, they take advantage of nueromuscluar adaptation. They ask you to put up your arm and they push it down. Then they put on the bracelet and try to push your arm down again and are unable to do so.

After the first test, your body figures out what muscles it needs to activate and is able to resist. The same thing would happen with or without a bracelet.

Just as random speculation... maybe healthcare that catches the allergies early enough that the kids don't die before we know what's wrong with them? Also, Southwest is still handing out peanuts.

Its all tied in together, to wit:

Not really how it happens, it's a matter of subtly changing the direction of or the angle of the limb you are manipulating. But you get the idea. I had an aunt who was going to buy one of those stupid bracelets. So I did the same demo that she saw on TV, only I had her hold an old penny. "Look, it works just as well! And you saved twenty bucks."
