Ryan Newman is the only NASCAR driver with a college degree. Newman received a B.S. in structural engineering from Purdue.
Yet, he’s an idiot.
Newman recently gave an interview where he said that he was “pretty sure” the 1969 Apollo moon landing was faked. Newman based his conclusion on a tv documentary he saw where: “The flag (planted on the moon by astronauts) was standing straight out when there’s no wind out there.”
Of course, had Newman spent 15 minutes watching the Discovery Channel instead of Fox, he would have found out it took the guys from MythBusters less than one episode to fly a flag in a vacuum and PROVE we landed on the moon.
Apparently, the mechanical engineering department at Purdue, Newman’s alma matre, doesn’t teach its students about basic concepts like inertia and momentum. Also, it’s hilarious that Purdue University just happened to conduct the number one moon-landing-conspiracy debunking study ever published. Basically, that study concluded only idiots believe we never walked on the moon.
Never the less, up to 28% of Americans believe all of the Apollo launches were faked and we never walked on the moon.
BOY,IS “DANCING WITH THE STARS” CONTESTANT BUZZ ALDRIN GONNA BE PISSED-THE 80-YEAR-OLD ASTRONAUT ONE PUCHED OUT A GUY WHO ACCOSTED HIM ABOUT THE MOON LANDING BEING FAKED
