    The only thing I can think of that makes sense other than the current agenda, is the millions and millions more cars Chevy and Ford built, maybe they paid off the History Channel or something? Maybe Mopar threatened to sue their asses, if they mention their name? It's probably over the electric car BS

        My folks were a terrible couple and the mystery of my unlikely birth has puzzled me. Except I was born 9 months after Apollo 10 so I figured mom musta been "in to it"..... While I know WHERE i was, for the actual landing i certainly don't remember anything.
        As far as what we've become, consider that our most successful can build their own and fly them too while China's most successful go to jail for dissent.

        I got my drivers in June of 69, so I as flying around in my new-to-me 1957 BelAir. As far as I was concerned; Tv was for kids, old men, bored moms and other assorted losers. My grandma who was near 70 at the time, said it never happened. Decades later, nasa all but admitted they faked it. I don't know what to believe, and don't care to waste time thinking about it. But the published debriefing video, and the "blue marble", speak volumes about it.
        The milestones in my life are; see below.
        I don't gibachit about leaving the surface of the Earth in a rocket, except to say it's a colossal waste of money, and a colossal waste of time, and a colossal deception, and a colosal intrusion into a space we don't belong, and at that time, had no idea what the heck they were doing.
        Or just maybe, they did...... and those days have led straight to these days.

          Ya know, it's a well know fact that Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin agreed to fake the moon landing. But to make the footage as realistic as possible, they insisted to NASA on filming on location.
          Turns out, NASA agreed with them.

            @toolmanmike will you please close or delete this thread? I didn't post it to become an argument about whether the moon landing was real. If people don't appreciate the reason for the post, they can do without it. Please delete or lock this. Thank you.

                  I didn't get the gist of it at first. Now I realize it's a great topic. Please just clean it up and leave it open.

                  All I can say is, the same person who shit all over this topic also is idiot enough to think the Earth is flat. I put his stupid ass on ignore a long time ago. Nuff said.

                    Here's the thing with that cat. I lived on this Earth over 50 years without knowing him. I can keep going the rest without him.

                      To oversimplify it a tad — stupid people may be too stupid to realize they’re stupid.

                                I was 12 years old laying on the floor of our family room watching it all on a 25 inch Zenith color tv.
                                I watched all of it from liftoff to splashdown and I still have the newspapers from then.
                                My dad built my grandpa a radio and he could tune in to communications between the spacecraft and the ground.
                                It was the most advanced technical achievement up till that point in time.
