Admitted high-school drop-out. Some of his arguments are... quite original, and this is the best that could be said about them.
- I don’t know if man went to the moon in the sixties, April 29, 2012
- How many cubic feet were in the Apollo Command module, May 09, 2012 (there was too much stuff to fit in it!)
- 15 miles of wire: guess the volume, May 09, 2012 (not started by him, but has some participation)
