    Andrea (the lab manager) is awesome.

    I must confess. Any "wingeing" you hear from Brady Haran about how long this collab took is 100% true. We filmed this 4 years ago (!). He's bugged me to publish it every two months or so, so as a way to express my sincere apology I'd like to humbly request that you go watch his video and consider subscribing on Objectivity. Also, if you do so, please leave a comment about how it was worth the wait and he should quit his wingeing. Here's his video. (I didn't know about the Genesis Rock!) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yvhLBzsDwSQ

    Also check out Joe Hanson's video! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qr28zMXQ3bU

      Video idea: could you do a video explaining the following behaviour: When i open a fresh can of coke zero and put in a metal straw, coke comes spilling from on top of the straw. It stops after a moment. THen when you take a sip from the straw, it happens again. Why does it happen with coke zero and not say with soda water?

      _"I have made an assumption about you based on my experience with others of your ilk"_
      There seems to be a lot of *assumptions* made about a lot of things these days.

      _"You demand more than evidence, you demand conclusive proof, while recognizing the impossibility of such"_

      "Evidence refers to information or facts that help us to establish the truth or existence of something. Proof is the sum of evidence which helps to prove something." - Dictionary

      fact - a thing that is known or *proved* to be true.

      proved - *demonstrate* the truth or existence of (something) by evidence

      demonstrate - to show clearly and deliberately
      - to present by experiments, examples, or practical application
      - to give a demonstration

      Lets see what my original question was;

      Moon rocks/Earth rocks
      What Tests have *You* conducted to verify anything about the "lunar" samples?
      How can you verify anything about them?

      VERIFY - make sure or *demonstrate* that (something) is true, accurate, or justified.

      Have you verified - or are you able to verify - or is it possible for you to verify - what you are saying.

      Or is it just your willingness to want to believe that makes it so?

      To that class of citizens who are known as " *Honest Skeptics* " and lovers of " *Demonstrated Truth* "
      We assign no man to oblivion because of a difference of opinion.
      Let God and His Works be true, though thy prove all men false.
      Alex Gleason

      _"You use this to justify your argument"_
      _"Doubt about one item, in your mind, invalidates all other conclusions"_
      *Demonstrated Truth* , I like this phrase.

      @Andrew I have made an assumption about you based on my experience with others of your ilk. You are singing in the chorus of space deniers, thus I logically assume you, like the others, sing the same stanza. You are somewhat more thorough in your willingness to do research, but still determined to come to the same conclusion. You demand more than evidence, you demand conclusive _proof,_ while recognizing the impossibility of such. You use this to justify your argument. Doubt about one item, in your mind, invalidates all other conclusions. One cannot carry on an enjoyable discussion in that kind of environment.

                True sterile rooms they would mandate mouths and nose covered

                                            Attended a local summer educational camp (nerd alert, proud of it) when I was in grade school, and one of the lingering memories from that was getting to see some small moon rock samples brought back from the Apollo program. I don't recall which mission they were from, and they were very tiny fragments, but it was so amazing to get to handle that as a young kid. This video brings back some good memories.

I guess I don't understand why everyone is wearing hair nets if the guy with the beard doesn't have to wear a beard net. Heck... I've done work in cosmetic factories where everyone is required to wear hair nets and beard nets.

                                                                                      No one has ever been to the moon, it is a lesser light source for nighttime, and is disc shaped. It's the same size as the sun, but 7 times less bright. There's only one side of the moon that faces earth, and shines.
                                                                                      If the moon was a sphere, and was a terra (land, rock formation), and was the distance away from earth that we're told by NASA; Do you really think that in 1969, 50 years ago we were capable of having a long distance telephone conversation from 238,900 miles away, and have it audibly broadcasted on live television? Seriously?
                                                                                      Today's news reporters have delayed reactions while talking live to their studio while they're at the scene of an event. Also, has anybody been able to make phone calls from an airplane at 30, 000 feet? We're talking 5 miles high!? 238,900 miles away just chit chatting with Houston. Right.
                                                                                      Sorry, but I'm gonna hafta call this episode, "Getting DUMBER Everyday!"
