Moon Explosion
« on: March 26, 2019, 08:28:04 AM »

Ever look up at the moon, and wonder what it would look like if it suddenly exploded then and there? What would you do?

I would constantly check the news, refreshing the page every 15 or 30 seconds, to see why it happened.

I'd say now we can find out whether that movie last year was accurate when it showed Neil Armstrong leaving his deceased daughter's bracelet in a crater near the Apollo 11 landing spot.

Probably prepare to be impacted by the inevitable wave of fragments or to be wiped out by the tidal wave of water that likely come a sudden lack of lunar tidal pull.

Ever look up at the moon, and wonder what it would look like if it suddenly exploded then and there? What would you do?

First, we'll blame the current President.

Then, we'll blame Climate Change.

Next, we'll hold congressional hearings.

After that, a few people will try to point out that the moon's explosion has nothing to do with the United States.

Next, there'll be conspiracy theories that the American Flag we stuck in the moon in 1969, hit a critical fault line, causing the explosion.  These theories will mostly be developed by the same conspiracists that claimed there was no moon landing to begin with as the whole thing was done on a sound stage.

And this is all within the first 3 hours of such explosion.

It will be caused by vast storage of nuclear waste on the far side of the Moon  which will reach critical mass when it comes in contact with magnetic radiation. :)

He would title it "bunker blast explosion" or something similar.

Doctor Who kind of did this in a rather shitty episode that felt like an abortion analogy.

While I was on 69 one day, I looked up at the moon above me and wondered:  Would incontinence cause a lunar explosion?
