right up to the freaking American flag
Wouldn't it be hilarious if China put a rover on the moon and used it to tip over the American Flag? Armstrong said they had a lot of trouble
getting it to stand up properly. I'm sure it would be quite easy just to knock it over with a quick bump. They could take a picture of it tipped
over in the dirt and put it on the front page of their state-run newspapers.
It's not like the US would cut off all diplomatic and trade relations over a flag on the moon.
We'd have to spend a 20 billion to send a rover back there just to stand it up again.
Finally, the two rovers would have to duel on the moon, battle bots style, to decide the fate of the flag. They'd be arm wrestling with the their
robotic claws and shooting lasers at each other. I would pay $40 for pay-per-view of that match. I would mount a P90 on top of the American one,
with tiny little cruise missiles fired out of the side.
