China owns so much US debt they get to use the moon landing set at NASA for free.

Landing on the moon? Pssh. Easy. Check this out. We're gonna land on the moon UPSIDE-DOWN.

It's one small step for the Chinese, one giant step for Legomorphs.

China really needs to strengthen their intellectual property laws to prevent people from just copying things like Ironman 3 or landing on the moon.

God I hate to say this and I never thought I would...did they or didn't they. Ten years ago this would be a conspiracy rant. Now though, given the propensity of nations, ad firms, and everyone with a PC being able to CGI or Photoshop it becomes a legitimate question.
I can only hope that the telemetry and tracking from a neutral source confirms this or I am going to be hiding with tinfoil on my head for awhile.
You mean like the European Space Agency's ESTrack network which China outsourced to for tracking and operations from the beginning?
You two almost trolled me. You should have seen the block text of profanity I just wrote and erased. I am going to take this shit out on strangers all day now I'm so pissed off.
I'd still like to hear it.
Given the source, it's a legitimate concern. Not sure why Meme is so exercised. It's easy enough to check, perhaps even on an individual basis if you have the kit to receive the transmissions. There was no question about sputnik, just about any ham could receive the telemetry and confirm the results.
Meme is a Chinese agent and he's mad that the PR Op isn't going as smoothly as the General Staff had predicted.
I can't even begin to express in words what jingoistic bullshit this is.
My comptroller at the ESA is most displeased with me, and now I'll never get to defect to a better country (Wales).
Pointing out that China is a cesspool of big fat liars who lie isn't really jingoism, meme. I love China as much as the next guy - they're basically Bismarck-era Germany, and who doesn't love Victorian capitalism? - but surely you can't object to a little skepticism?
