LOL - Government Websites Shutdown

These people are so pathetic.

During this "government shutdown" (so-called), it seems that many agencies are "shutting down" their websites. Never mind there is no need to do so. Just a disclaimer on the contact page would do it. But look at what they are doing.

Here is nasa.gov:

http://notice.usa.gov/

Notice they have a re-direct from nasa.gov to notice.nasa.gov making the entire site closed off, where they could have just put their notice on the contact page.

They are trying to piss off as many people as possible.

So blatant. So pathetic. So damn funny.

If the moon landing was a hoax

why haven't we "been back" for decades? Special effects are far better now.

What are your thoughts on the ISS? Real? Hoax?

"why haven't we "been back" for decades?"

Because we never went there in the first place, IMO. That's why there are no plans to return. No other country has attempted such a journey. All of the Apollo evidence has already been debunked. The low earth orbit activities like the ISS and all of SS missions went up to maximum of 415km. The SS visits to the Hubble went up to 560km. Gemini 11 went to maximum altitude 1,375km, but that is it besides the supposed Apollo moon missions. I believe that these lower earth orbit missions all happened. However, the moon is 380,000km away. That's a big difference, especially using the technology from 44 years ago.

maybe

there is no more gold colored foil :)
and I would bet,it was made of better quality back then
heh heh heh,sorry steve, forgive me,i just couldn't resist
D

If we deny truth before your very eyes,then the rest of what we have to say,is of little consequence

I dunno about this hoax

I dunno about this hoax stuff. I lived in FL when this mission went up. We all saw it in the sky. We followed all the news closely, as did so many other Americans, and we watched the astronaut bouncing around in zero gravity, on our TVs. There was not ANY computer technology then. Pretty hard to pull this off, as a hoax. I think it happened.

Understand. This is my little pet conspiracy theory.

NASA controlled all of the images. Who knows where they came from, or when they were produced? NASA refused to provide any direct video feeds to the MSM. The only way to get the images of the men on the moon was from a camera placed in front of a TV monitor, which explained why the pictures were so grainy, indistinct, and ghost-like.

If you agree that the government lies and you agree that they have been caught lying to us before, then the possibility exists, albeit slime, that could be another lie. Actually it would the mother of all conspiracy theories if ever proven true.

I especially

liked the lack of any time delay between mission control
and them astronauts
cont/plus sign this photo(makes it bigger)
who is taking the picture of the guy in the suit holding the camera?
and why is there a llama in the reflection of his helmet?

It depends who is running what equipment

True action at a distance communications do not have delay times. Your assumption is based on the current knowledge of public education, which is not how it works in science.

Current science also states that shooting stars are not millions of years old or "light years" away in time, but could actually be only minutes old, or possibly, happening instantaneously.

This concept described above was how it was discovered 100 years ago, and in our arrogance, we as a people have embraced the "we know all" form of stupidity of Einstein thinking. It was also this thinking that caused Einstein to kill 100+ naval officers in a horrible accident because he had no idea what he was talking about.

thank you

for the info
did you see the llama,or what ever that was in the dudes reflection?
question,about Einstein,how did he kill them?
D

My 100+ naval officers may have been exagerated xD

I never could quite find the true answer, a few different stories of what happened exist, and each time I manage to find any information on it, the story is slightly altered from the last time I read it.

deacon's picture

no worries

It did give me a point of reference (lol,as i thought you meant albert)
I have the same prob when researching,hard to find what is true
after all the alterations and omissions
one would thing truth would be easy to come by and just know
lies are easier for me to figure out,but doesn't always lead back to truth
anyways,thanks for the info,I will look into it

Check the bottom post, ill bold the section with his name.

"Explosion at the Shipyard" I believe writ by Oliver Heavyside.

The USS Lucifer is docked at a shipyard in need of repairs. It's on an important mission to bring nuclear bombs to Israeli military forces in Iran.

Dock electrician, Mr Young, comes across a bag not seen in days, the substation transformer feeding the dock is not completely connected and the USS Lucifer needs its power now.

Lt. Jr Grade Einstein and master chief electrician's mate Heavyside, look at the transformer and find a pair of windings not completely connected, the work, only partly completed by Mr Young.

Heavyside still being sick from last night, heads for sick bay. A seaman named Lopez, recently demoted for fighting with blacks in the engine rooms, comes to assist Einstein.

Lopez fancies himself a hotshot and is eager to assist Lt Jr Grade Einstein. Einstein not ever having seen a transformer, asks Lopez if he knows what the connections are. Lopez replies hes never seen this kind of transformer before.

Einstein, an MIT graduate in physics, remembers the equations of Maxwell, which tell him(in his mind), that the intensity MF on driven bindings X1 and X2 with the intensity MF of the unconnected binding X3 and X4.

Einstein proceeds to tell Lopez to combine X1 to X4 and X2 to X3. Lopez balks, feeling this may not be correct, remembering back to electrician mates school. Einstein orders Lopez to make the connections or be Court Martialed for his fighting in the engine room.

Seaman Lopez is not stupid, but Einstein explains the superiority of MIT education over naval EM school. The connections are made and Lopez closes the switch, killing everyone in the blast. (Note, both Heavyside and Einstein were not killed in the blast)

Electrical engineering came almost to a standstill after that point, as Einsteins form of electrical engineering became mainstream, and Heavyside never wrote another book on the subject.

I believe this story is included inside of one of Heavysides books, though I haven't figured out which one yet.

Here is the official story from Pearl Harbor:

Explosion at the Shipyard, N.F.G. : Lieutenant Junior Grade, U.S.N. Albert Einstein is seated before five senior officers at a Judge Advocate General Board of Inquiry. It has been convened at Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard. Lt. J.G. Einstein is the defendant and the Board is about to issue it’s verdict. The charges are very serious. It seems that Mr. Einstein utilized a college physics textbook, in lieu of Bureau of Ships directives, in performing operations on a shore power connection. Mr. Einstein employed “his understanding”, as derived from Physics, “Maxwell’s Equations”, in determining the connections for a shore power transformer bank (480V at 1500 KVA). Seaman Lopez was directed by Lt. J.G. Einstein to make the “backward” connections, but Lopez knew the outcome would spell disaster. He learned in his Naval Electricians Mate training that the connection would cross phase, however Mr. Einstein berated Lopez, as Einstein’s Princeton University education overshadowed “Electricity Schools”. Lopez was reminded that to refuse orders would result in a Captains Mast and possible Court Martial under the U.C.M.J. A terrified Lopez closed the switch and was killed in the blast. Four more were injured and the Shipyard was without power for several hours. Lieutenant Junior Grade Albert Einstein was pronounced –guilty- by the Board. He received a life sentence at Leavenworth Federal Prison. The next day the Chief of Naval Operations issues the following directive to all Fleet Commanders. It reads in part; At 0000 hours U.T.C. Dec 21, 2012 the following order is in effect: The use of Physics Texts in any and all Naval Operations is henceforth PROHIBITED. The next day a Presidential Order is signed abolishing the practice of teaching Electrical Principles by Physicists.
