July 20 marked the 45th anniversary of the moon landing, when Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin turned a new page in space exploration by landing and walking on the moon. To commemorate this 45th anniversary, Discovery channel published a set of rare photos from the Apollo 11 mission. There is a growing number of people, however, that consider July 20 to be the anniversary of the moon landing HOAX, especially in the light of the 2009 NASA statement that all original recordings of the moon landing (and that's over 700 boxes) were erased by mistake. Well, not to worry, folks, Freaking News is here to save the world yet again.
Show any evidence that moon landing was a staged hoax. (Some examples could be showing the "uncut version" of the moon landing photos, showing it was a staged photo set.)

The super moon was today blamed for causing five ships to run aground off the British coast as the lunar phenomenon lowered tides. The moon was at its closest to the earth for 19 years and some believe it may also have triggered Japan's tsunami, although astronomers have dismissed the claims as pure nonsense.
A British coastguard spokesman said a 25 foot yacht had also run aground and three other vessels were also marooned by the unexpected turn of events.
He said: "We checked them all and there were no injuries, just some surprise at being caught out like this. Blame it on the Moon."
Photoshop the possible effects of the super moon on anything (people, events, nature, etc.). What can be blamed on the Super Moon?
Depending on the location, late night December 20 or early morning December 21, the full moon will be darkened by Earth's shadow as our planet passes between it and the sun. December 21 is also the winter solstice, the longest night of the year, after which the days will begin to grow longer. Coupled with the lunar spectacle, it means we're in for an especially dark eve. Last time the winter solstice and full lunar eclipse happened at the same time was 456 years ago.
Let's recall that a full lunar eclipse saved Christopher Columbus on February 29, 1504. Columbus correctly calculated the day of the eclipse and when his crew ran out of food and faced hostile local inhabitants in Jamaica, he told the locals that if they do not cooperate he would make the moon disappear. After Columbus "made the moon disappear", locals begged him to return the moon to the sky, for any food and supplies he would need.
Photoshop the moon any way you wish, or anything related to the moon. Some examples are: merging the moon with some objects, showing what life would be like if the moon ruled the world, including the moon in movies and paintings, etc.
Photoshop this full moon image (click to download) any way you wish. Some examples are: reshaping the full moon, putting some objects and people on the full moon, putting the full moon into some unusual environment, using this full moon image in advertisements, movies, paintings, etc. These are just some ideas.

New Moon, the long-anticipated sequel to Twilight, is opening in theaters worldwide this Friday. In Australia and Europe, where it already opened, New Moon's midnight results were the highest grossing midnight screening since Star Wars: Episode 3. The third installment of the Twilight saga is already in production and the fourth is in the plans. New Moon is not getting good reviews from the movie critics, but fans love it, and the critics say - you'd have to do much worse to end this crush.
Photoshop New Moon movie any way you wish. Some examples are - edit/create New Moon posters, or design a poster for the next Twilight sequel.
