Re: The rest of the world should be afraid, very afraid.
please, oh please tell me that "1973" is a typo!
please, I beg of you. if it's real, does the person who wrote that not realize we were getting out of Vietnam in that year?
Does he think we fought WWII, the Korean War and the Vietnam war all at the same time?
This is truly scary.

tides and death
the tides are caused by the earth and moon rotating around a common gravitational center.
as to getting too close, I want to say that the gravitational forces would shred it apart--think Hale Bop (the name of the comet shredded by jupiter? that or Haley). Not positive on this, as I can't seem to find anything on the net dealing with this kind of desruction of the moon. Soon as I find something I'll link it.

Re: Wiki bias
I had a teacher who didn't like it either--but then, it may have been something to do with the fact that the wiki article on Allende argued that he didn't kill himself (as I recall).
He didn't have a problem with my friend's resource, which argued for the traditional view of Allende's death, though it was equal quality and perhaps less well sourced. He's also conservative (in a more trad. sense--gov't should stay out of your life, not dictate morality), which may have had something to do with it (since Allende was a communist)

Re: Moon Orbit
simple answer, so we can finish with this off-topic nonsense.
Tidal force - Wikipedia.
basically, and really simplisticly (and so, possible gross misrepresentations), tides are caused by an uneven gravitational field distribution. That uneven distribution is called a "tidal force".
ABE:
you're not being poed again. What causes tides on our planet caused Shoemaker-Levy (thanks chiroptera for the correction) to be ripped apart by jupiter. You just have a misunderstanding.
(now then, I seem to remember a certain person telling another certain person to stay out of another certain thread because the 2nd person knew squat. Does the 1st person want to make an apology to the 2nd person (seeing as how 1st person asked questions that proved his ignorance here, which was used to disqualify the 2nd person from participating in the other thread)?
Edited by kuresu, : No reason given.

Re: Moon Bulges
Tidal forces affect both the earth and moon. (what do you think is helping send the moon out?)

Re: Their "objective" take on the ACLU
no need to tell us. tell those "nuts" who think a "conservapedia" is objective.
