Apollo 20 alien spaceship debunked

Long story short, I was able to debunk the lastest apollo 20 video on my own by simply comparing the opening shot of the hatch to some stock photos of other apollo hatches. I most likely found the exact hatch the hoaxer used for the video, and that can be found here. Everything about these two hatches are the same INCLUDING the fact that the hatch is in the open configuration!! If it was closed (which it would be in moon orbit) the hinges would be clearly visible in it's closed configuration. (Look at this picture here for closed hatch configuration)
The video footage of the interior of the command module, the scene where we see the hybrid american / russian flag and the apollo 20 mission logo could have easily have been filmed inside a training command module. Where would one find one? Well, there's one available to the PUBLIC in Alabama at the US Space and Rocket Center. Check out these guys enjoying a sit in the trainer. The trainer is lying on it's back, and as a result the straps in the video which look to be "in zero g" are actually just hanging straight down. The video is being shot pointing up. It would be trivial to bring a video camera and faked logos on this publically accessible command module, shoot the vid and bob.. is indeed your uncle.

Alien Ship on Moon - Update 2 ..And now this??

This video was released two hours ago from the same guy. Apparently he has 22 hours of footage that he's gonna be uploading to youtube. CRAZY!!!!

Alien spaceship on the moon? Apollo 20? what the..

Tell me what you think of this. I've been doing quite a bit of research on this one and by nature am quite skeptical. This one intrigues me.


"A recent controversial footage of about 6 minutes (which seems a digital transfer from a film, and that we can call the “Apollo 20 footage”) released on YouTube is causing amazement inside the ufological public on the Web, all around the world. The footage would be the presumed shooting realized during a NASA classified mission, in the ‘70s: the “Apollo 20” mission or, as it is suggested by the subtitles of the dialogues between the crew and the Mission Control, the “Vandenberg 20”. I remember to everybody that the last official landing mission on the Moon was the “Apollo 17” (NASA), which took place in December 1972, and that the Apollo 20 mission was cancelled by NASA in 1970. For sure, if the footage is not a hoax or a fake, the purpose of that mission would have been to shoot close to a mysterious object for understanding its origin. And, maybe, to organize a secret retrieval if possibile."

I think it could be an ad campaign for the upcoming movie "Transformers"

O que me gira sobre..

Hello todos!

Eu estou escrevendo este em uma língua diferente às coisas da mistura acima de um pouco. Eu tenho um sentimento que ninguém está indo figurar para fora este assim que eu posso dizer que qualquer coisa eu quero. Deixar-me tentar. Algo que eu tenho sempre quis dizer mas pôde nunca admitir a inglês: As tartarugas giram-me sobre. Quando eu v uma tartaruga, eu começo tudo quente. Eu não sei porque este é. Pôde ter que fazer com algum processo que evolucionário eu não estou ciente de. Eu teria tartarugas do animal de estimação mas seria como ter mais de uma esposa. Nao bom. Long vivo a tartaruga.

I win!

Okay, I won that last blog war hands down. Next topic soon..

Wednesday, June 20, 2007

Our blog war starts.. NOW

If you so choose to accept it.. if not, well, then I win. What is a blog war? Simply respond to the following statement in your own blog. Best response wins. (if there is one) Comments are disabled for this entry.

I hereby declare a blog war with the following situation: (we'll start with an easy one)

Situation: No Limit TexHE Tourney, stacks are lopsided, you have an average stack of about $2500 blinds are 100 / 200. There are eight players on the table, you are UTG. You are dealt "sigfried and roy" (QQ) and are first to act. You raise 3x the big blind. Position 4 folds, Position 5 folds, Position 6 raises $600, Position 7 folds, Position 8 folds, Dealer folds, SB folds, BB goes all in with $1400.00.

Intel: Position 6 is staring down at the table and avoiding eye contact. He is currently the chip leader at the table with $9000 in chips. He has brought gatorade to the table and eats cherry tomatoes. He has a reputation for finishing in the money, he is what you would consider to be a "good player". You did, however, find out that the night prior he was at casino and lost a wad of cash at the poker tables. He is single, and has no where to be at this hour, which is.. 1:30am. The BB (all in) position is fidgity. He is tired and had a fight with his spouse prior to the game. He keeps looking at his watch. He is however, known to you as a sneaky player, and a jackass. You want nothing more than to relieve this table of his presence.

Everyone waits for your call... what do you do? and.. why?

Check out these blogs for possible answers:

Dan has replied in his blog (click here)
Basically he says "it's the easiest call ever"
I disagree. I say.. the move is fold. Dan did however get a few points correct in my opinion, a crappy bet under the gun with 2500 should have been a push it in sally. But, NOW.. he knows he's beat, most likely with AA or KK by seat 6 there who if he was smart would not go all in, but attempt to pull an all in reraise by you. BB is a wash, he's on a hail mary at best. So, if you call your against AA KK or AK.. only the latter you have a 2% edge on, so it's a race. I say, chuck the cards. Finishing in the money is your only goal here. And, the fact that BB is all in allows you the satisfaction to see how your cards would have lost anyway. Keep in mind you are UTG. ANY Raise made by UTG at an 8 player table HAS TO BE INDICATIVE to a good hand. Number six is not an idiot, as stated in the intel... He has seen your raise, and knows it's not a good position to be bluffing in. HE KNOWS you have goods, and yet he is still willing to challenge it. He has you beat my friend.. he has you beat. Lay it down, lay it down.. then say "that was one hell of a lay down" but at least your still in the game.

Movies you have to watch..

Two movies you have to watch in the next few weeks:

"Office Space"

This movie was a recommended watch to me from Ray and Tan YEARS ago. I believe their exact words were.. "WHAT? you haven't watched OFFICE SPACE??" followed by this look of tharn and disbelief. After succumbing to the enthusiasm of R and T’s recommendation, I understood the justification for the outburst. This movie is ha-fricken-larious. If you have ever worked in an office environment, and even if you haven’t, you will be able to relate to the characters in this movie. The story is about a few office workers that hate their jobs. The office, the bosses, the TPS reports, the annoying no-one-knows-what-he-does guy, the super-duper happy receptionist, the fax machine, the copier, are all despised by the characters. Among the other great performances, the sympathetic character “Milton” played by Stephen Root, is delivered to perfection. Give the guy his stapler!!
I now own this DVD and keep it at work on my desk, next to my swingline stapler. Rarely is it there however, as I lend it to everyone that hasn’t seen it. If someone pays my desk a visit I’ll ask them if they’ve watched it, and if they haven’t I echo R and T’s enthusiastic question… “WHAT??? YOU HAVEN’T SEEN IT??”

“Fight Club”

I tend to pick up on things pretty fast, I can figure stuff out quickly. It’s what I do. Yea, I might not be able to fix a damn car or for some dumb reason remember people’s names, but I can solve stuff lickity split. It’s hard to pull one over on the schaaper. “Fight Club” pulled one over on me and I instantly fell in love with it because of that. The author, Chuck Palahniuk draws you inside someone’s head, and builds this story written totally in the first person. An office worker (Ed Norton) and a soap salesmen (Brad Pitt) build a club which helps men identify who they truly are. The very interesting thing about this movie is the main character played by Ed Norton doesn’t have a name. He’s credited as “the narrator”, and his narration is unique and quite thought provoking.
This is quite a violent movie, but I wouldn’t consider it gratuitous. This movie is one to see more than once, and is much more fulfilling watching it the second and third times.

The corner grocery store.

I swear.. CO-OP is an acronym for Canada's Opressed Old People cause it seems to be the punching bag for the elderly of our community. Forgive me for my generalizations, I don't care, Something has to be said. Here are a few of my observations:

1. Old people can't count.

Excuse me for bitching, but the isle you're standing in says "EXPRESS LINE FIVE ITEMS OR LESS!" This means, look down at your little basket and count how many items you have. If you have more than you can count on one hand, YOU'RE IN THE WRONG LINE! If you can't count how many items you have, chances are you HAVE TOO MANY ITEMS ANYWAY. A senior's discount DOES NOT MEAN discount items off your total item count. NOW MOVE ALONG!

2. Old people have waaaaay too many coins.

Why the frigg do old people empty the piggy bank before they do groceries?

"That'll be $11.43 please"

"Oh my, i think I have that hang on.."

"Here you go.."

"That's only $11.00"

"Oh dear, I have some pennies"

"there you it now.. hehe..oh dear I'm missing bob barker"


Coins are meant for two things: Vending machines and Parking meters. NO ONE CARES IF YOU HAVE EXACT CHANGE! NOW MOVE ALONG!

3. Old people can't make up the mind.


4. Old people buy weird things

They come to the till with stuff like diet ghostberry prune juice and ectoplasmic powered jelly powder and bulk particle accelerated antacids. The friendly checker has no idea resulting in probably one of the biggest fricken time wasters of all time, THE PRICE CHECK!

Checker: "I've never seen this before, it's not scanning"

Old person:

Checker: "I'll get a price for you, hold on"

Checker: "It's $4.23"

Old person: "Oh dear, I can't pay that, I only have about $3.00 in change"

Me: "MOVE A-FRICKIN-LONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Buried Car

This is kinda cool...

On June 15th 1957, a 1957 Plymouth Belvedere was buried in a time capsule in downtown Tulsa OK as part of a half centennial celebration. On friday this week, June 15th 2007 they are gonna dig it up! The time capsule was sealed concrete and the car itself was loaded with stuff from 1957 INCLUDING a full tank of gas, a woman's purse, a bottle of booze and whole lot more, then covered in polystyrene and placed in the concrete capsule. It has been down there for 50 years! Along with the contents is a list of people's guesses as to what the population of Tulsa will be in 2007, and the closest person wins the car! unless person is dead, then it goes to next of kin.
I think this is pretty cool, and i hope the event is broadcast on the internet!

Check out this link:
There are pictures of the car going into the capsule and other Tulsarama things. Check it out!

Getting back on track..

My blog has suffered a little lately, mostly due to the fact that I've had my face in a book. The good news is the facebook fad is wearing thin for me. Been there done that. Facebook is going a little rubix cube on me at the moment. I figured it out, now its just a cube with similar colors on each side, and the reason to continue using it is just plain moot. But that's not all.
Last week I had a conversation with a friend of mine who recently lit the fuse on a stick of dynamite strategically placed under the ass of his facebook account, and he made a few really good points why. His reasons are his own, and he is welcome to share them in a comment here if he so desires. One of the mutual reasons we had was about facebook replacing a phone call, or a real life meeting with a virtual note on a wall. Language is more than text. Communication is more than a scribble on wall. Meanings can, and will be lost in translation.
So, I am about to light a stick myself, and I'd be a liar if I said the match wasn't lit.
I have 35 friends, family, and coworkers in my list. There is a problem with this. The relationships i have with friends are different than I have with my family, which are different than I have with my coworkers, but more importantly, relationships I have some friends are different than others, and with family, more so again. Facebook wants to treat them all the same.
There is a feature called a "limited" profile which can be tailored to only grant or remove areas of your profile to specific "friends". I did this. I took almost everything important like my wall, status, online status, mini feeds, pictures.. etc removed them from the limited profile, then added all my coworkers to this "limited" profile. It didn't take long for them to do the same. Think about this. You're my "friend" but I don't want you to see anything I'm doing. Pump sand. Ok. This solves the issue of coworkers.
Now we have friends and family. My disclaimer is there many family members that I consider friends, so please don't be offended. People simply have a different relationship with their friends than they do with family, at least I do. Different enough to make it "odd" they all see the same facebook profile, and raises as many eyebrows as it does questions.
I once ran several different websites for our families, both my side and leo's side, as well as a site for friends. These were all separate entities, and the complexities of relational meshing was not an issue as it does for a single facebook profile.
As the match moves closer, it would be a shame not to reflect on the positive aspects of this medium. It allows the breach of physical contraint to keep in touch with people, maintain relationships, and to poke eachother. It allows people to come together as a group, and although the groups in facebook can have thousands of people and no posts, I'm sure there are groups which actually collaborate on something somewhere. It also coverts introverts to virtual extroverts.
I think facebook is great for people who communicate on single planes of existance, like student bodies, for which it was designed, but the complexities of our social threads which weave between the fabric of our reality can never be defined in a single profile.

A little behind

Got a few things going on right now, one of them being facebook. As soon as that starts to get a little old I'll be posting some more, promise.
