    Agreed, this thread is not about homemade tools. But it's about pseudoscience, which is strongly within our field of interest. Among web forums, we do an incredible job of staying on-topic, so this Tool Talk subforum is our chance to discuss stuff we like, but isn't always about homemade tools. These discussions also end up being searchable in Google, so they're a chance for us to attract people to this forum who share our culture and worldview.

    I only saw John Prine in concert once, but he really delivered.

    Here's a young John Prine with John Burns, playing Paradise in the backyard of the house he grew up in. 5:23 video, and the song starts at 2:07.




    Another classic video, with John Prine in the raw, plucking in an old kitchen, delighting over the "Happy Enchilada" lyric joke:

    A lot of old tunes get "updated" and when I saw Marv's fix for the moon nutbar's I thought of Old Dan Tucker:

    (Chorus)
    Get out the way, Old Dan Tucker
    Out the way, Old Dan Tucker
    Get out the way, Old Dan Tucker
    You're too late to get your supper


    Dan built a rocket to the sun
    Folks said "Now, Dan, that can't be done!"
    Dan laughed and laughed with all his might
    "What? Do you think I'm crazy? I'm goin' at night!"

    Get out the way, Old Dan Tucker
    Out the way, Old Dan Tucker
    Get out the way, Old Dan Tucker
    You're too late to get your supper

    Dan went to the doc and the doc said "Son-
    Take off your clothes, stick out your tongue.
    Now stand by the window." When Dan asked why
    Doc said "I'm mad at that neighbor guy."

    Buzz Aldrin took a jab at the new moon landing film (First Man) on his Twitter yesterday: https://twitter.com/TheRealBuzz/stat...59675649171456 . The film is under fire for downplaying the role of America in the first moon landing, specifically for omitting the iconic flag planting scene.

    Chuck Yeager spoke out a few days ago too: https://twitter.com/GenChuckYeager/s...55347857981440

    If I'm good at anything, I hope it's humor, specifically tying odd things together.
    Here, aided by one of a true national treasure, I offer......I won't bother with an obligatory 'Enjoy!', it's impossible to not enjoy.

    My son, a wealth of trivia, told me of an interview with a film maker who said that with the state of the film industry in 1969, it would have been much more difficult to fake the landing than actually doing it!

    I KNEW IT! 400,000 folks orchestrated a wild science fiction conspiracy......and kept under their hats 49 years.
    Question then; is the count ascending or descending?

    Ha! Keeping a piffling 400 000 quiet for 49 years on the moon landings has got to be easy!
    I want to know how they keep the multi millions from all the nations of the world that have explored this planet, the airlines and the shipping companies that traverse this globe, the armed sentries, (apparently), that guard and protect the ice wall for the last, Oh I dont know, 400 years at least, quiet?
    Want to know what I'm talking about? Just search Flat earth on yootoob. You will find your IQ drops 1 point for every minute of viewing.
