    really? do kids think we didnt land on the moon?
    Its amazing how a theory like this becomes a common myth. Then you have people telling you its truth because "soandso told me"

      oh....that hurts...*cry*. Just kidding. I learned this in astronomy class, and the teacher taught like it was 3rd grade, so it was kind of hard to understand. Looking back and reading this thread, tho', i understand why you think i did no research/assumed what i did. good debate, tho'. And to answer your question, yes, there are kids and adults who think we never landed on the moon. There are also people who think elvis is still alive in America. Go figure.

        Another quite fun hoax was when there was a documentary in Sweden that claimed that the world soccer championships in Stockholm 1958 (the year might be off, I'm no soccer fan) never happened.
        They interviewed people with "proof" that it never existed, but in the end they revealed that everything was an experiment to see how people would react (the ending titles revealed this).

        Some people, however, didn't watch the whole show, and were actually a bit unsure if it happened or not.

        So, I guess there are people who believe anything they see on tv, whether it is a documentary with serious scientific flaws or anime about swordsmen

          Eventually, yes, but it's designed to be moved higher periodically to compensate for the atmospheric drag (which is what brings it down)
          I thought orbits decayed because it was not possible to place something in a perfect orbit. All things that orbit eventually crash into the thing they orbit, iirc. I'll do a bit more research.

            Without friction, there's no decay. However, there's always friction...

You've managed to change my view on this whole topic from "i know for a fact we didn't" to "i have no idea what to think of this topic anymore". Have either of you considered a career as a lawyer? Or some other job that requires you to get people to change their minds on things like this?

                  Bah, you're absolutely right - I'm wrong on all accounts. Orbits can be stable for an eternity if there is no drag. Too bad this was after breakfast.

                        I would be worried more about you in shiai. Imagine it:

                        You are facing Paikea and suddenly a there is a bang and a flash of smoke and off with your head. How would they mark a strike to the head if it is missing?

                          A rocket propelled flying kensen equipped with a tsuki sensor, how about it Paikea?

                            The sensor would be quite pricey, and they'd take my license away. However, now you've got me thinking how much fun a shinai might be with a booster. Hmmm...

                                It was either that or nuclear conflict. So I had no choice, I'm the only one thats going to toast mankind.
