The Moon Hoax is why my name pops up a lot. Right place at the right time sort of thing. My webpage about it was up the day the Fox “documentary” aired, and it got a lot of hits. To be honest, I wish it would go away. It’s done a lot for my publicity, but I have to be an honest man and say that I wish people would wise up, look at Bart Sibrel and realize that everything he says is crap. I’d rather everyone were skeptical and critical over my having my 15 minutes.
The Maxim thing was… odd. They did a piece on advice from professionals. They wanted an astronomer to confirm that blinking rapidly would adapt your eyes to darkness more quickly (a commando told them that). I had never heard of it, and frankly it sounded silly. They didn’t want to print it, so they asked me if I knew anything that could be used for the piece. I gave them several ideas, and they went with finding Polaris.
And gah, that Pax thing. I was awful. I memorized my lines, and came off sounding really stilted. Next time, I’ll wing it and let then edit it as they see fit.
The Amazing Meeting was great – except for Saturday morning :-(. I haven’t had time to write anything about it yet.
