I agree. Seeing as how Buzz is one of my heroes, and if everything goes right, I'll be an astronaut myself (maybe even on a resurrected Mars program), I vow to fulfill your wish.

The US moon landing was totally faked. If you look carefully at the lunar lander where it says "United States" you can tell by some of the pixels that it actually reads "Soviet Union". The flags were likewise edited from Soviet into US flags. Also, the soundtrack was obviously dubbed from the original Russian. That's right, the moon landing was real but it was actually done by Soviet cosmonauts.

It's sad that so many Americans and other people are so cynical at the US government when even the Soviet Union accepted that America got there first.

Everything looks better in HD.
But anyways, even if it was fake it doesn't matter now, seeing as how easy it is to set foot on the moon. But eh, oh well.

Zeno like to believe it was real, da.

Of course it was faked! The Mole Men led an armed invasion of the Apollo 11 launch site, took over the shuttle, and launched it themselves. The first man on the Moon was really a Mole Man! :eek:

The shuttle? These wouldn't happen to be those nasty time-traveling Mole Men that we've been hearing about in the news, would they?

Probably real, but could be convinced otherwise

I don't really 100% believe the majority of things I'm told. Especially when the government tells me them.
