What happens when you f*** with someone with the "right stuff"

Great video via Media Blog of Apollo XI astronaut Buzz Aldrin clocking a moon landing denier nutjob right in the jaw (happens at around 2:50 in the vid):

It's one thing to just be a moonbat and have a conspiracy theory; it's another to get in a former astronaut's face and call him a "liar" and especially a "coward."

Meanwhile, Aldrin might wanna have a chat with Whoopi Goldberg, who sounds like a moon landing conspiracy nut:

Goldberg cited a Hollywood movie starring O.J. Simpson and Mr. Barbra Streisand (James Brolin) as astronauts, "Capricorn One," to tell us that she wonders if the moon landing is real or faked, as it was in that fictional movie.

Asked Goldberg:

1) "Well, who shot the footage, if both of them [the astronauts] were in it?"

2) "Why was the flag rippling if there was no wind or air?"

Sheesh. The History Channel had a terrific program on the other day debunking these idiots; there's some of that info at the above link.

"Capricorn One" is one of my favorite flicks from my youth, but in reality it could never happen. The sheer number of people that would need to keep their mouths shut would make such an attempt prohibitive -- just like any major conspiracy (like "9/11 was an inside job"). Apparently a remake is in the works for the film.

Go, Buzz!

*ahem* I mean, I actually saw that Mythbusters episode and I'd buy them a drink for that alone. (And one for all the happy exposions the five of them have given us. Not for each explosion, because that could kill W.C. Fields. You know, if he wasn't already dead.)

want to bet the Capricorn One remake will feature Bush and the Republicans as the villans?
