Moon-Bombing Update

As you would expect, LCROSS did create a plume. ...It just didn't look like anything from Star Wars. Or even Tom Corbett, Space Cadet.

...You realize this whole thing was an elaborate charade to cover up the destruction of the former Nazi moon base, right? Staffed by sasquatches and chalupacabras, you betcha!

Updateder: Is there no end to the idiocy? Try this: "...other than that, it’s THE MOON. It’s the guy I see peacefully sitting in the sky every night, blocking the sun for me so I can get some shut eye. The thing we’ve written songs, books and poems about, the thing we all used to want to travel to when we were kids just to see if it really was made out of cheese. I just don’t get it. We’ve become so desensitized to destroying nature that launching a huge chunk of metal at our outer space counterpart just seems OK, just seems logical, as long as we do it in the name of science?"

Oh. My. $DEITY. Blocking the sun every night? Land-O-Goshen, what if this person breeds?

Google Blogs is a flowing river of both idiocy and, if I do say so, pure, sparkling reason on the subject.

Tom Corbett. I think I read those books back in '63 or '64. Well, I know I read them, just not exactly when. They were my "gateway" books into science fiction.

Pre-emptive strike on Mike.

I get Bob Parks' email newsletter, which was sold to me as a skeptical inquiry news list--exposing junk science and frauds.

It turns out that what Bob Park considers "junk science" is anything related to manned space exploration and anything not related to mandatory population reduction.

The champion of science thought it was pretty hilarious how there was no big impressive plume. . . .

Mighty pricey for a single shot. Could have bought a lot of ammo for that much money.

See Ya

I'm sure I've said it before, but I wonder if it hurts to be that stupid.

Well, you know that except during somewhat rare instances the moon does block the sun every night (and day). Just not for objects on earth.

Of course since it is exceedingly unlikely this person lives someplace extra terrestrial they are in severe need of a brain transplant.

I always wonder if these people are really super slyly snarking at us.

Larry: then they're too hip for the planet.

Rickin8or: way more delicious than the plain Chupacabra!

WV: monsporc -- naw, it's the Jamacian style Chupacabra you eat with a sporc, mon!

I pointed out some corrections to the person along with a link to moon orbit information commenting that they may have missed in the elementary school.

This is the reply I got

Hey, thanks for your corrections eriko, and why yes, I did “missed it grade school science” very often because I was a fan of ditching math/science classes.

As for correcting the post, I really don’t feel like it. Weeee.

Ms. Roberta,

Have you ever read the Samurai Cat books?

I think you'd get them.

Eriko, my favorite was the genius who linked you to the dictionary definition of "hyperbole."

Because stating that nighttime is a daily lunar eclipse is simply an exaggeration for effect.

They even quoted that Amy Ephron piece--the one where she says she would make a joke about the mission "throwing the astrology off" but she "actually kind of believes" it.
