  1. Let's hope there are not more earthquakes with the pull of the moon.

  2. Thanks for the heads up.

    Did they get Mr Roger's gay son to narrate this video?

  8. When I have trouble sleeping tonight, I'm going to listen to that guy's narration of the super moon story. For some reason it is extremely relaxing.

  10. @sargon bighorn...just in case your post was not a joke the gravitational pull on the moon has nothing to do with eartquakes, shifting tectonic plates under the earth cause earthquakes. The gravitational pull of the moon does effect sea tides, but it has nothing to do with the density of oceanic lithospher, or mantle heating which causes the plates to shift.

  12. Haa! It sounds like Fred Schnieder from the B52's....I kept thinking he was going to start singing "theres a moon in the sky. it's called the moon."

  13. Now I'm really confused, Bill O'Reilly told me God causes the tides.

  14. I thought the "supermoon" was Victoria Jackson's face on the previous screen ??
