What do you even do with people that willfully stupid? I mean, it's taking far too long for their own stupidity to kill them, FFS. Can we convince them that lightning is the Rapture so they'll stand outside during thunderstorms holding metal rods? Yeah, I know...I'm mean. But people like O'Really are @#$%ing in charge of my @#$%ing country, and the man is so bloody stupid, he makes me doubt evolution.

I have tried that but they wouldn't believe me, even when I poked two holes in my palms and declared myself Jesus.

Complete bull-shit.

"Pampered, cosseted, and cherished?" Take a look around. This is hardly an ideal planet.
1. We can't live on three-quarters of the planet, because it's covered with water.
2. Most of that water is contaminated with salt, so it's not even potable.
3. Of the land area, much of it is too cold, too hot, too dry, or too wet for human life.
4. Our sun will kill us if we don't protect ourselves.
5. We can't survive without artificial help: shelter, clothing, etc.

I'd like to convey my thanks (and, I'm sure, the thanks from many others) to Gorgeous for her long-lived efforts in keeping forum members amused. Sometimes, she has me in stitches. Is there no internet award suitable for such a marathon effort?

She claims to be a woman. I know she normally lies through her teeth but I see no advantage in that one. Maybe she's a program?

Let's try the real facts.

There are lava tubes below the lunar surface could be large enough for human activities. The lava tubes have been known about since 2012 and NASA first proposed that these tubes be used to store things or be sealed off to make airtight habitation areas.

It was an early form of the lava lamp, called a "lava tube". Gorgonzola will be saying aliens built it, of course.

Only since 2012? I thought they were known about a helluva long time before that. I remember discussing them when I was in high school!

Meh. Maybe we were just spit-balling ideas back then. It really doesn't feel that way, though, I'm sure we were discussing something from a scientific article at the time. Or, hmm, maybe it was just Omni magazine.

No, apparently my memory isn't as bad as I thought. Here is an article from 1971 that was discussing the possibility of lava tubes on the Moon: http://science.sciencemag.org/content/172/3984/722 And it's from Science magazine, so you know it's top-notch quality stuff! ;)

Where? A young school girl asks Buzz Aldrin why no one has been back to the moon for a very long time and Buzz Aldrin answers the question. That's all of it.

The astronauts left mirrors on the moon, and scientists today routinely bounce laser beams off those mirrors to measure the changing distance between Earth and moon. Kinda sounds like proof to me.

No Buzz Aldrin said we haven't been back. You haven't actually watched your own video have you? :lol:

What makes you "idiot of the year" is that there is a famous video of Buzz Aldrin punching out an idiot who tells Aldrin we haven't been to the moon.

I hope you meet Buzz Aldrin one day and tell him the same thing......

"Hollow moon" brings up 55,300,000 results on Google.
Must be something to it.
The job of a skeptic is to investigate the unexplained; not to explain the uninvestigated.
