Buzzed Aldrin punches guy who questions Moon Landing
Daily reminder this happened
I would have punched the guy too. He got Buzz Aldrin up there on false pretenses, and then harangued him for the camera to induce that reaction.
If Aldrin had played along and complied, the guy would have just delved into some other thing, or accused him of blaspheme for lying on the bible.
This is not pro or anti moon landing, it is a totally separate issue, it is about the destruction of civil society because that guy has no fear of physical punishment. he actually wants a physical interaction because current law is more conducive to his tactics, and that is not good.
Just for historical perspective, back in the feudal medieval period, when Knights had all the power, they would have killed a guy like this outright, and not suffered any legal problems. As you can imagine in a society structured that way, Interactions were quite different.
Yeah the guy clearly had gotten too comfortable with the non-physicality of the internet. Not a good look
When I watched that years ago my sentiment was "YEA FUCK THAT GUY!"
Now that I know the truth....well...now fuck buzz.
Must suck to have to live with that huge lie on your shoulders. He probably got paid really well and well you know, threatened with death.
Wasnt quite professional from either one of them, i feel a little bad for that small fella 🙁
Nothing wrong with slugging a guy who calls you a liar and a coward and a thief to your face. Pick a topic you think Owen is wrong about (doesn't matter what), and ask yourself if you'd blame him for punching a smug gamma for doing the same thing to Owen on that topic.
I'm with Buzz on this one. He might be a liar, but it takes a pair of big brass ones to sit on I don't know how many tons of rocket fuel and let them light a fire underneath it! Even if he didn't fly in a rocket, these guys were as far as I know, all test pilots. Try getting life insurance if you are a test pilot!
