Construction of the World's Highest Bridge

Millau Bridge
I just found this on digg:
The Millau bridge over the River Tarn in the Massif Central mountains is more than 300m (984ft) high - taller even than the Eiffel Tower. With its concrete and steel pillars soaring high above the morning fog in the Tarn Valley, the construction makes a spectacular sight.

efiling my taxes

Why do I have to pay to efile my taxes?  People should have to pay to paper file.  It doesn't make any sense.

Moon Landing a Hoax?

Wow! I had no idea that posting a animated gif of the moon over 28 days would bring in so many comments!

One person brought up the fact that he doesn't believe that we actually landed on the moon in the 60s. This always amazes me. I've studied under the many people who part of the Apollo program. This includes: Robert Stengel, Robert C. Seamans, Jack Kerrebrock, Dan Lickly, amoung others.

Project Apollo involved tens of thousands of engineers, scientists, politicians, press, and astronauts. It's just not possible for it to be a complete fabrication. In order for that to happen all of these people would have to be fooled or compliant. Any well-trained aerospace engineer knows that there is nothing impossible about landing on the moon. It's just very expensive and difficult.

If you still have doubts, or know of evidence "evidence", please check out this site: Moan Hoax.
