Crazy is a stretch & probably the wrong word, but it does concern me because of the damaging effects it can have on society.

The Jan. 6 Committee formally subpoenas Trump:

Quote:
The records being sought by the House committee pursuant to the subpoena are due Nov. 4. The subpoena also says that Trump would be deposed on Nov. 14, after the midterm elections.

Steve Bannon just got 4 months. Hopefully the first of many. Of course he isn't actually going to prison yet, due to appeals.

Republicans have been gaining in the polls to the point where the Senate looks like a tossup.

Trump will file appeal after appeal until he can't anymore.

How does one perform seismic experiments on the moon without actually going to the moon?

The moon landing conspiracy stuff was fun for awhile- right up until Buzz Aldrin decked that guy and then I realized that alot of people REALLY believe in that garbage.

I have to admit, I'm curious about the whole 'moon is fake' theory. That seems much more fun than just the moon landing being faked. Have never heard that one before.

Yeah it's a whole sub-genre of flat earthers, they think space and everything to do with it is fake. They try to prove all the ISS videos are faked with wire work and stuff.

They think the moon is a light in the sky relatively close to earth that flies around, that it's not a ball of rock but some kind of ball of light.

Yup, it's starting to look incredibly bleak down there. If the GQP are successful at winning back both chambers next month and the Presidency in 2024...yikes. That country is in serious trouble. Republicans are at least a 50/50 shot away from their ultimate authoritarian wet dream becoming a reality. Scary times for sure.

It's the ####ing easiest thing to debunk using a few key logical premises based on observation:

1. When the Earth casts a shadow on the moon during an eclipse it consistently produces a circular shadow.

2. The only geometric object that produces a consistently circular shadow is a sphere.

3. Therefore the Earth is a sphere.

My god, people have known this with absolute certainty since the time of Aristotle. The only time it was in question was during the Dark Ages when people had no education and could not read? Are we as dumb as those people?

Yes...yes we are.
