Certain Agendas Ruin Historical Documentaries

Posted February 16th, 2018 at 03:10 PM by Radrook

What bothers me in any historical portrayal, be it an attempt at fiction or a documentary, is an obvious agenda. For example, portraying of a certain historically prominent character which has been generally accepted as belonging to one race suddenly appearing as a totally different one.

This was done in a documentary of Attila the Hun, where Attila was portrayed as a Northern European when all the historical documents describe him clearly as Eastern Asiatic.

Our Semmingly Nearby Moon

Posted February 10th, 2018 at 01:18 PM by Radrook

The moon seems nearby when viewed on a clear night. Yet at its closest it is 225,623 miles away and 252,088 miles at its farthest giving it an average distance of 238,855 miles. So the difference between being farthest and nearest is 13,233 miles or approx a little more than four times the distance from the USA East Coast to its West coast.

Which means that when the moon is farthest away, at 252,088 miles, you can almost fit 32 Earths within that distance. When it's closest...
