More Evidence Man Landed On The Moon

After a little talk about not swearing on my show, I even said "penis," I talked about some way cool images from the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter. The photos show the landing sites of Apollo 12, 14, and 17. That led me to briefly talk about people not believing man has walked on the moon. Will this convince them? Probably not.
