Suckered in again

At least I can sort of see where the didnít go to the moon people are coming from. There was a movie came out around that time that laid it all out -Capricorn One. The plot was there wasnít enough money to go to Mars so they faked it to raise the money to actually go to Mars but people started figuring it out and it went downhill from there.

The problem with this is that ham radio operators, astronomers and the Russians were watching the whole thing and would rat them out. Also with technology of the time, it would be easier to go to the moon than to fake going to the moon.

Itís the flat earthers that drive me batshit. They have obviously never been anywhere. I used the live in Niagara Falls Ontario and would drive to Toronto to shop. As you got close you could see the CN Tower poking up out of Lake Ontario and gradually getting taller as you approached.

I also got to go to Europe. I had a compass with me so I always knew what direction the airplane was flying. I was also heavily into astronomy so I knew what was and wasnít supposed to be in the sky. That, combined with all the time zone changes, let me know exactly where I was on the globe.

A flat earthier whose never left his home town doesnít get it.

I could have sworn that was a quote from somewhere

Lord of the Rings or something

I googled it and all I got was a page full of hits on Alzheimerís, dementia and memory loss.

Should I take that as a hint?
