Mythbusters to Address the Moon Landing

150_moonMythbusters wants to settle the question once and for all -did the Apollo astronauts really go to the moon? The cast and crew of Mythbusters visited several NASA locations to conduct experiments to see if the moon footage could have possibly been faked. Phil Plait of Bad Astronomy Blog served as an informal advisor for the episode, which is scheduled to air April 25th. If he has any inside knowledge of how the experiments went, he’s not telling.

Mythbusters is to Science what Dick Chaney is to Morality and Integrity. Unscientific. Skewed, in order to put forth an agenda consistent with their ideaology.
It's nice to see how they base their, heh, (I can hardly call them experiments without laughing), their "Proofs" on the weakest arguments skeptics have put forth, and yet they still have to manipulate their results in order to fit their own beliefs.
Take their silly flag experiment. Gently wave it in the 'atmosphere' test- then in the 'vaccum' test they yank really hard on the dials to show how it can continue to move for a long time. What a joke.

Good gawd, it never fails to amaze me how most people will believe something if it is stated to be a "fact" on the ol' boob tube. The morons from mythbusters are like something out of a cartoon. If they are too stupid to get their little bogus science experiment to work then they just say "Myth Busted!" It is now a fact cause we said it is (based on one poorly done science experiment).
I would also like to say how proud I am of the Mythbuster crew for proving beyond a shadow of a doubt that free energy doesn't exist. They had a whole week to figure out cold fusion and it was a total bust. If these guys can't figure it out then it is surly impossible. Coal, gasoline, and nuclear are the only way to go. MYTH BUSTED!
They even proved that "magic bullets" don't exist. Firing a bullet made from ice water and another made from frozen hamburger was a total let down. They couldn't make it work and ice water & frozen hamburger are pretty much the only materials that a fella can make a magic bullet out of... so there, myth busted again.
I know I can trust the guy in the ubercool beret and his friend who likes to blow up toilets with M-80's to get to the bottom of all of this false space landing non-sense. I'm sure they will fully explain all the details of why the astronauts had air-conditioning packs when there is no air on the moon and how the suits were too big to fit through the little tiny hole in the landing pod. They will surly explain how they made it through the Van Allen radiation belt and how they snapped of thousands of pictures, traveled all across the surface of the moon and conducted numerous scientific experiments in only a few hours.

Question: So are these guys just total hacks who pawn off Pseudoscience as facts?

Answer: No. People on TV tend to be pretty honest and don't lie. MYTH BUSTED.

Answer: Actual scientists form a hypothesis and then conduct a SERIES of experiments (like several hundred to thousands) before they come to a conclusion... but since these guys have a TV show we'll let them slide. One or two experiments should do the trick. MYTH RE-BUSTED

Answer: Buster the dummy confirmed that these guys are legit. MYTH RE-RE-BUSTED

It is no longer a Myth but an undisputed FACT that these dudes are like real trustworthy n' stuff. Me and Buster will even vouch for them. IT GOTS TO BE REAL!

Some of you people are just plain stupid. Roger,you said, would it have killed them to hire an engineer? What would they need an engineer for? they are engineers! Name one thing they didnt engineer or build themselves? And you fools that don't like the show, don't watch it then. Go watch the simpsons or some other worthless show!

Birth control eyeglasses - Back in the day when you needed eyeglasses and were in the military, the government would issue you a pair for free. However, they had thick, black plastic frames and very little style. This type of frame was referred to as 'birth control eyeglasses' because there was no way you could ever, ever pick up a girl while wearing your eyeglasses.
