Oh, my! It still amazes me that we got to the moon four decades ago with the computing and electronics technology that were employed. Boggles the mind.

Haven't you heard? They didn't actually get to the moon. It was all done on a sound-stage in Houston ...

True, and that's why we still haven't returned there, even with today's technology...

Since the Chandrayaan moon probe took photos of all the Apollo sites recently, I guess that means the USA is even outsourcing its conspiracies to India these days!

If they went back to the moon with Bebooks instead of the above technology, NASA would have to spend millions of dollars developing a BPET (Bent Paperclip Emulation Tool) to reset it if it crashed.

So, let me get this straight: At Area 51, the Apollo landings were on sound-stage 1 and the alien autopsies were on sound-stage 2?

They told me it was all shot in Hollywood. But I don't have to listen to Them any more, since I got this tinfoil hat.

Yeah, this amazing 'thing' was actually mentioned in another post - or thread, rather - about 6-9 months ago.

I'm still amazed.

I remember the times I used to carry my Kaypro to the bookstore and got so many stares. (Of course, if I carried it with me now, I think I would get a lot more stares.)

No, the alien autopsies were at Wright-Patterson in Ohio.

Your lack of faith darkens my heart!
Neil Armstrong knocked out a man for even suggesting such a deception! I believe they went to the Moon and so should you too!
Or was it 'Buzz' Aldrin?..
After all, it provided mankind the first chance to play golf on another world!
