As Buzz once explained to me - Apollo 8 flew towards to where the moon is supposed to be and found nothing but just a reflection of the earth.

Hence the faked landings on the fake moon.

If I remember right I have seen somewhere that one of the Russian Lunokhod lunar rovers went to one of the American Apollo landing sites and photographed it (just to be sure?) they would have been the first to have jumped up shouting fake.

  • The Penguins are coming!!!
  • Location: Back in the UK, Kettering, Northants

Since I retired recently I have found out how few watchable TV programmes are on during the day, and become disillusioned by the so-called factual documentary channels.
 
I no longer believe Penguins are real.   
 
A huge number of these factual documentaries are about UFO cover-ups, Loch Ness, how the Great Pyramid is really an alien space ship.  The proofs are amazing in their naivety, using similar programmes as ‘evidence’. 
 
If they were on the entertainment or comedy channels I would have no problem, but on Discovery and National Geographic I have to conclude that even the creatures presented by Attenborough are merely spoofs generated in CGI by Industrial Light & Magic.


:embarrassed:  & our Bob K says ...."I no longer believe Penguins are real"......Bob....them's fighting words.....just ask your colleague Nick B....you know our RAF member who recently spend time way down south with the penguins  %) .....  Derek


After a one way conservation with someone who looks/doesn't look like a penguin I can issue the following statement:


During my recent deployment to the Falkland Islands I can neither confirm or deny that penguins exist. The strange black and white figures seen  with me in some of the pictures are not penguins, they are men in tuxedos with women in brown fur coats. There have never been penguins on the islands, and they have never reached the moon either.
I am sorry that I lied- penguins do not exist and never have, they are a popular christmas myth...


OK you can put the fish gun down...
What do you mean I've seen too much...
What are you doing with that eel?... :-))

Tee hee Nick B.  Sorry, I was thinking of you when I wrote that wind-up  {-) %% {-) %%
 
What we believe seems more influenced by repeated media input than personal experience.
I do believe in Majestic Class stern tubes and gunboat anchor systems though . . .

To definetly confirm that there is equipment on the moon just Google moon on the internet and go to crater view  O0 , one of them cars will have passed by it, you know - them with the cameras just in front of the passenger, I believe one of them went up with one of the missions later on.
 
and on majestics - that stern walks are protection for the rudder and prop - oops did I say that out aloud.

Of course the moon landings happened. You'd need to be pretty gullible to believe all these ridiculous conspiracy stories.


I've got a piece of moon rock on my mantelpiece which I bought for only £50 from an Albanian gentleman at a car boot sale.


It came with a certificate of authenticity signed by the famous astronaut Bizz Eldrin.

Bizz Elfrin?

He was married to Marion Munro the famous film actress who slept with Jacqueline kennedy the president of america who got shot. But she only got shot because she knew nevil Armstrong never went to the moon.
Armstrong crashed his space ship into London Bridge where he was rescued by earl spencer.  Spencer only told one person: his daughter Diana.   
Diana threatened to tell the world which is why she was murdered by our royalfamily.
But now all the mayhem ers know so prepare ye for death

Our capacity to believe whatever we choose is probably the key to to every leap forward we have ever made. Our endless questioning of the blatantly obvious is just the keyhole.

... but it all hardly matters as the sun and the moon will eventually be swallowed up by the wolfs Sköll and Hati  O0  %)

As it's been far too windy to sail model boats, I believe I will have another beer.

Won't be long then before they contest the ownership of the moon and extend their no fly zone around it too..
