NASA has been widely criticised for erasing and re-using the tapes containing the original recordings of the first manned Moon landing 40 years ago, but now newly restored high quality copies are about to be revealed.

"The original recordings of the first humans landing on the moon 40 years ago were erased and re-used, but newly restored copies of the original broadcast look even better, NASA officials said on Thursday."

It is utterly astounding. How many people can come up with the same complete lack of understanding about what this means? The truth is MID rather if you are in the dark or rather if you knew what went down, is that the tapes are sitting in a vault somewhere. There is no way the original mission footage could be shown to us common folks. I mean we should just be happy with the ones that were fabricated for our enjoyment. The mission was landed, but if the public was shown what was truly on the surface, bricks would be excreted.

Please, TALM. What are you talking about? Flying saucers on the moon? Alien pleasure domes on that vaunted rock? I don't know why people fall for that crap. If, indeed, that is what you are driving at. Pardon my french.

And then of course, there's this immediate turnabout...again: There is not intelligent life of the Moon. Unless we have people up there I don't know about. Never has been either except our guys. Ive had an overnight attitude adjustment. Im on board with you guys now. Were you planning on filling us in on this pattern, or will you simply continue playing this game?
