99.9% of Youtube comments are crap.

Whether it's laughable or irrational, this is the path that ALL great men walk!
If there's a wall in our way, we'll destroy it!
If there's no road, we'll pave it with our own hands!
The magma in our hearts is blazing like flames!
Who the hell do you think we are?

I can't stand youtube comments. Though interesting knowledge has been gleaned from them, from time to time.

Pretty much. Although I think technically it's closer to 99.99999999%, which is almost the same as 100%.

Whatever, why is this dude playing it so slow? Herman Ri could have done the whole thing in like 10 seconds playing one handed while chugging a bottle of vodka.

How good can this Segovia guy be? He doesn't even have an Ibanez signature model?

Yep, and it gets better. One of their main arguments is that the stars in the background of the photos are fake, since they don't twinkle like we see them here on Earth, what with an atmosphere to distort the images and all...

I didn't notice that until you pointed it out.

Actually, it's that because there are no stars in the background of the photos, they're fake. I'm a big fan of Phil Plait, the Bad Astronomer, as well as the Skeptic's Guide to the Universe so I know more about moon hoaxers than most sane people should.

The solution is twofold: First, it was daytime on the moon. Duh. You can't see stars during daylight on the moon for the same reason you can't on earth. The sun's too ....ing bright!

If that weren't enough, the shutter times they were using on the cameras were insufficient to capture starlight anyways.

Mosty conspiracy theorists don't actually know much about science or they only know "half of the story" and go around acting like they're smart, calling on your common sense, when they don't realize how idiotic they sound to someone familiar with the facts.

Hey, this guy can sweep almost as good as Rustie Coolie! Oh wait, he's using his fingers, that's cheating...



I'll bet he learned how to play harmonics from Zakk Wylde.

(the chord stuff at 2:15 is kind of scary... Eliot Fisk was Segovia's favorite student.)

I'm not a huge fan of super fast classical guitar. To me, the more expressive and flowing type of classical guitar is WAY more impressive, although that dude ....ing rips

Holy ....ing ...., that Elliot Fisk video is astonishing! I used to play the theme from that piece (Paganini's Caprice 24) as a party piece at school, but never managed to master the whole thing. He even managed to nail the left-hand pizicato variation for ....'s sake!!!!

Define 'well-adjusted'...
