It's almost amusing listening to him rant on about people who don't have a clue about science denying the Earth is round. A little bit about people who don't have a clue about science denying the Apollo landings...?

He like a lot of HB's is too far invested in his stupid beliefs to ever come back into the light

Oh my giddy aunt.

He still thinks anyone actually gives a damn (that matters) about what he cannot prove.

Brought a titter or two.

Who is Vinny Eastwood anyway, sounds like two actors mixed up, might make a good western/east end London cross over film.

You think Vinny Jones is an actor?

He is actually a has-been footballer (round ball type) and when he was a footballer, he was particularly nasty piece of work!

Being a former soccer referee, that is a description of many of them

These days there is quite an overlap between the professions, though footballers really tend to overact (especially the Italians).

Quite an art to holding ones shin and looking like it is the end of your career then getting up when the ref has not seen it (or refuses to see it). See it a school boy level as well. Endemic I think. It is what the game expects. At least in rugby, you know someone has hit you. Usually because they are eating your ear or something.

I particularly enjoyed his obvious mental backtracking about Armstrong, whose first docking in space paved the way for...erm...all sorts of other dockings in space but not Apollo obviously...

His tribute to Armstrong was contemptible, on one hand celebrating his achievements and on the other denying that the technology that led to those achievements was the stepping stone for Apollo.

it's just extremely amusing watching a mendacious self-regarding peddler of untruth get swamped by uber-idiots.

You forgot entertaining.

As a critical thinker with any sense of humour, you MUST get some enjoyment from watching two groups of complete idiots trying to out-stupid each other.

Its rather like watching a real-life version of Monty Python's "Upper Class Twit of the Year Competition"; you enjoy the off the wall stupid antics while not giving a fat rat's arse who wins!

That made me laugh very loudly Obviousman. Thank you very much. It reminds me of a YouTuber called stalkervision who claimed that the CM was not sufficiently shielded to pass the van Allen belts, while simultaneously claiming that the Apollo 8 astronauts sighted UFOs while orbiting the moon (claims which were covered up of course).

I thought they did see a UFO, it was disguised as the Moon.

Nah, that must be a theory already.
