But the USSR collapsed so what does that tell you?
@megamanx181x, tells us the USA can't be number one at everything🤔. Even though it's desperately trying to be (eg. COVID cases and deaths) 😉
@megamanx181x, that space exploration achievements don't mean anything
@TheDoctorsTARDIS, not yet
@Nooby142, I have a bridge to sell you
@megamanx181x, that they saw some shït in space that ruined their brains.
@JoeJoestar, the truth was out there...
@Nooby142, da comrade. I too believe that the ChiComs would not lie about the cases. They only expel journalists to send them home so they can report on how good the government did on protecting the whole world
Okay but the moon is so walls-to-the-ball far away it actually kind of does trump a lot of those. Maybe not in the context of space as a whole, but in an Earth centered context it is. Going into orbit is to going to the Moon as going to the Moon is to going to the sun
@Captain Swordsman, 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
@Captain Swordsman, that and having people go to space and performing space walks is a lot more common now. No human being has been on the moon for nearly 50 years
@Sexy Homunculus, i think because it’s so expensive
@Captain Swordsman, also, I helped the USA build those nukes. Oh, if only I'd been a watchmaker.
@rezd, True, who would want to pay for a second trip knowing that there's nothing to gain but more rocks.
@Captain Swordsman, just go at night and you’ll be fine.
Yeah and they left most of them to die up there.
@GunLovingMerican, that monkey is super dead
@GunLovingMerican, hush, Laika is still alive and living it up on Knowhere
Yeah but do they have people protesting a virus?
@Beggar Mugger, I seen a bunch of old people protesting too... like, do they want to die?
@seeUpee, i've read an article stating some old people would sacrifice themselves if it meant saving the economy. so yes
@slapmysalami, to those people... I salute them. True Americans!
@seeUpee, I believe he means the Russian old people our willing to die.
@slapmysalami, reminds me of the elderly japenese volunteering to clean up a site full of radiation, as their age would most like be their downfall before cancer could develop. Id like to think Id be that thoughtful to fellow mankind at that age
@Beggar Mugger, No they have people protesting other things
@seeUpee, maybe they do.
@Beggar Mugger, no, that’s not really accurate, they’re protesting the idea that there’s only one good response to the virus. Japan, Taiwan, and South Korea all have weathered this without a lockdown (at least that’s my understanding).
Say they’re protesting a virus is a straw man argument, kind of like saying a wall won’t stop a virus (which if you believe, then why advocate for keeping people in their homes? Walls don’t stop viruses).
Folks need to work. Maybe we’ve flattened the curve enough. Hard to say, but people are going to die either way.
@Hot Coffee, but that's the thing. We haven't flattened the curve overall. This is why I want to cut off Florida because they lack the evidence that reopening their beaches are safe, but they still reopened their beaches and such.
@Hoover CAT, safe is a relative idea. Different people have different tolerance for risk. I heard that South Korea, Japan, and Taiwan all have been successful in mitigating the effect of covid without shutting down like we’ve done here.
The only thing I’m certain of is this has been a horrible setback for hypochondriacs.
@seeUpee, death is preferable to communism.
@Hot Coffee, also us essential people have been going out same as usual and one would think that we would be dieing in droves yet we are not. So just make it so the vulnerable people have the extra precautions: 1 hr shopping/appointments before everyone else, PPE, and let everyone else get back to working.
@Hot Coffee, but do Japan, Taiwan, and South Korea have the covid 19 challenge where a brave soul risks their beautiful well being to lick a toilet seat? I THINK NOT So can you really even look up to their basic standards of viral etiquette?
@Hot Coffee, actually Japan has gone on some kind of lock down, flight cancellations because cases were starting to increase there again.
@IAmTheWalrus9, interesting, will check it out
the moon landing was faked, but the director was a perfectionist so they shot on site
@Killing instincts , you had me in the first half
Also didn’t kill millions of its own citizens
@Monad Vairocana, hey now, bringing up the Soviet’s history of genocide is cheating, if we don’t let them think they won a few things they get depressed and start drinking
It was a come from behind win.
Yeah but fjck communism.
And there is a lot more the US has done after that which Russia has not.
And the moon was always the finish line of the space race. It doesn't matter if you're ahead 90% of the race. It's who crosses the finish line firstm
Consider the 100m dash or a drag race, just cause your first off the line, and have an early lead, doesnt mean you win the race if you dont cross that finish line first...
But did they air it live worldwide?
First death in space
First human death in space
First attempted crew murder in space by way of a small drilled hole.
Why you gatta bring up old sh!t?
Adidas guy, let me see your true face...
Does America have a literal but culture called gopniks?
The USA may have come in second, but we’re still number one!
If you aren't first you're last
Tsk tsk when will you humans learn youre all in this together. Its one planet one species get along already.
@Cuactemoc4919, nice bumper sticker, kumbaya ma-lord, slogan. Unfortunately human nature is human nature.
The moon landing was faked
@Landrover, the fake landing was mooned.
@Landrover, you belive moon is real?
@spongar141 , bet he believes birds are real too...
Wow, they put a child on the moon?
