Well, 50 years ago TODAY.....can you imagine?   




I can't remember what I was doing on that day exactly because I was not glued to the TV screen....I was living on the farm and my Dad was out driving a truck and I was simply hanging around with some buds.....

...and besides Teddy Kennedy was all over the news because of Chappaquiddick and Mary Jo Kopechne....

....anyway, I eventually found out about it...

I remember what we were doing 7-20-1969. We had visited my aunt and uncle in Clarksville, Tn. and drove home just after they landed on the moon. It was hot as hell that day, over 100 degrees, and we were in the 1961 Buick Le Saber with no air conditioning. Riding with the windows down was like sitting in front of a blast furnace. It was kinda like today, except a lot hotter and we didn't even have global warming yetWink We made it home in plenty of time to watch Neil Armstrong walk on the moon. I was glued to the TV as much as I could, until the astronauts were on the aircraft carrier.
Life's concerns should be about the 120lb pack your trying to get to the top of the mountain, and not the rock in your boot.

I was real annoyed that the moon landing knocked Teddy Kennedy off the front pages because I wanted them to hang him!

That did not happen....there was only black and white pictures then. How come the flag and craft is in colour???
And the guys who staged it forgot to remove the electric cord that powers the spacecraft up. You can clearly see it in the picture. The film crew also left their lunchbox behind....see that white thingy at the base of the craft.
And if you look at the bottom left on the picture you can see an ant walking.

That time when Buzz Aldrin punches moon landing denier.
 
It was September 2002, and Buzz Aldrin, accompanied by his stepdaughter, was arriving at a hotel in Beverley Hills  where he was about to give an interview for a Japanese educational program, when Bart Sibrel showed up outside the hotel.
There is a short video on which you can clearly see that it didn’t take Sibrel long before he started his usual routine of harassing Apollo crew members, asking Aldrin to swear on the Bible. His demand appears far from polite and as you can hear in the video, he starts calling Aldrin a coward and a liar and accuses him of getting money for something he claims Aldrin didn’t do. The 72-year-old Aldrin responded by hitting Sibrel in the face.
 
The incident was investigated by the police after the conspiracy theorist filed a suit, but charges were dropped after witnesses told the police that Sibrel provoked Aldrin by aggressively poking him with a Bible.
 
 
 

Buzz Aldrin, who spent nearly 300 hours in space, is one of the most popular astronauts in history. Prior to becoming the second man to walk on the Moon, Aldrin served in the U.S. military as a fighter pilot and completed 66 F-86 combat missions during the Korean War.

As for Bart Sibrel, he needs to work much harder to prove that the moon landing was a hoax, especially since NASA released thousands of photos from the Apollo moon mission.

If it didn’t achieve anything else, harassing Aldrin might have helped him see some of the stars supposedly missing in the photos.

 
Git em Buzz!!! Gotta love this guy!!

How does the flag wave in the wind where there is no atmosphere?

The flag had a little strut that stuck out at 90 degrees....but it didn't really stick out perfectly straight, it dipped down a little....so the cloth flag drooped and was wrinkled.....
