I was mightily surprised to find out today, on this 40th anniversary of the moon landing, that there are some braniacs out there who honestly believe the moon landing was a hoax.
Really? I guess these people turn themselves inside out trying to disprove we ever made it. I’m not sure why they do, but they do.
Mythbusters (I love this show) did an episode tonight on disproving the conspiracy theories. Pretty interesting stuff. Don’t know how I missed all the hub-bub all these years. I mean, it seems like I did hear about that at one point, but I didn’t seriously think there were flat-earthers out there who seriously believed their own horse-hockey.
I’m wondering if there’s a story in that somewhere. What happens when the fake-moon-landing theorists are proven wrong, do they switch to the 2012 Mayan apocalypse malarky? Were they sucked in by Y2k too?
I have enough real-life concerns to worry about without making stuff up to worry about as well.
(And for those of you wondering, yes, I do love James Bond. *LOL*)
