Bring me back some cheese if you would be so kind. I like cheese.
It's green. I hope that's ok.
Put some moon air in those tires for better mileage.
That is the biggest car I've ever seen. Those footprints along must be several kilometres across.
Are you barefoot? Watch out for snakes.

I shouldn't have admitted I faked the Moon landing so quickly. I was hoping for a chance to punch Sibrel in the face.
Now I'm off to bed so I can dream about real Moon landings.
So whose rocket are you launching that on? (We should be able to get a good argument going on that, at least. )
I say there is an invisible elf in my backyard. How do you prove that I am wrong?

But look at the footprints. The sun is obviously at the wrong angle for the shadows in them. I know you're all NASA disinfo agents trying to discredit my self-discrediting and I will not be intimidated.Originally Posted by Fazor
Are you sure that photo's from Apollo 11? It looks like the Apollo 8 one to me.
Can we move the later discussions to the CT forum, where they obviously belong? It is intuitively obvious to the most casual of observers that Luckmeister is trying to make his magnificent feat seem like a joke so he doesn't have to deal with papparazzi.
And now, if I may, a serious moment about Moon landings in this thread of levity:
On July 15, 2009, Boston.com's Big Picture blog featured a 40-image post observing the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon landing. I missed it then but just discovered it. The photos are wonderful and many are ones I hadn't previously seen. I especially like the one of the darkened Mission Operations Control Room with the live image of the EVA showing on the console screens and large wall display.

42 years later and something like this can still get me all misty-eyed.

Those photos are all a perfect size for my desktop wallpaper. I think I'll cycle them through at about one per week.
That is a superb link! It makes the whole thing look like a family vacation, sort of. (On a much larger scale of course)
Regarding Photo #35 of the Big Picture blog, Collins said, "I realized that for the first time, in one frame, appeared three billion earthlings, two explorers, and one moon. The photographer, of course, was discreetly out of view."
How unique it was to take a photo with every human being in existence located somewhere within it except one -- himself. I'm wondering if that's ever happened in another photo anywhere. Offhand, I can't think of one.
