    Side question. If it ever did come to surface that the moon landings were faked by stanley kuberic and it was all green screens, what would happen to the omega brand? The speedmaster brand ?
    If you told people "this is the watch worn on the moon" you are right, you would be a fraud, unless of course you have bought one of the Speedmasters from one of the Apollo astronauts that walked on the moon.

    And are you saying in the second part of the quote that if the moon landings were faked by anyone but Stanley Kuberic then the Omega brand wouldn't be harmed? What do you have against Mr.Kuberic?

On the far end of the curve are the people who were intelligent enough and determined enough to actually send us to the moon. And thus, there are also people on the near end of it who think they're smarter than all the "sheeple" in the middle, that there's more to it than "meets the eye", and that they're smarter than everyone else cause they're the only ones who can see it.
    I don't think you're expressing the bell curve correctly. In a bell curve you work from the middle outwards. It tells you how far off from the middle you are in either direction. A better example would be in tabular form IMO. Like x% believes, x% is uncertain, x% doesn't.

    SO we didn't go to the moon?

    But isn't the speedy still a great watch. It holds it's value well and few things on the watch (except for the bracelet (which took year to change) and the movement) have changed.
    So it's cool. You are wearing a watch (has not gone to the moon) that many great men have loved and worn at during major events.

    I agree with Tino and the others who expressed incredulity at the mere existence of this thread and its premise. But if the past year has taught us anything, it is the sagacity of Isaac Asimov's prophetic words:
    “There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.'”
    And if this thread makes your brain cry, this website (which likely is the tip of the proverbial iceberg of stupid) will make you suicidal: Everything is Fake: Top 40 Pieces of Fakery in Our World | Humans Are Free

    The Speedmaster you wear will not have been to the moon.

    it's Santa Claus not Santa clause.
