Credulous Observers Give The Moon What It Wants

So, despite our advice, you just couldn't help yourself. You HAD TO PAY ATTENTION TO THE MOON THIS WEEKEND, didn't you? Even NASA got in on the act. I am sorely disappointed with all of you, but particularly NY1 mainstay Pat Kiernan, who put aside his initial skepticism and helped validate the satellite's attention-seeking ways. Bad show, everyone.

I was in downtown DC on the night in question doing a "Moonlight Monument Walk" so I should have seen something very much like what is pictured here. Uh, no. The moon was kind of bright I guess but that's about it. Stupid whore moon.

All these moon photos are just trick shots taken with verrry long lenses. I call it the ET Across The Moon effect.

That's no moon. That's a Mega Flan.

No show in California — rain.

Yeah, I dunno about this "Supermoon" thing. I was in the E Village (hahaha lazy person who refuses to learn new bars) and it looked like, normal? The moon is normally like, an inch big, but instead it was an eighth of an inch bigger? Dumb.

Also, somebody decided at the bar to figure out how far away the moon is. I guessed 13,700 miles, cuz that seems like a lot? WRONG. It is actually a QUARTER FUCKING MILLION miles away. Jesus, moon. That's fucking nuts. How does some shit so far away still turn our teenage basketball players into werewolves?

That moon has been acting all high and mighty for years now. Glad to see someone telling it like it is.
