So that's why Americans have flags everywhere, it's to make sure that everyone knows they already have that land!

Unassailable logic if you ignore actual law, in particular the Outer Space Treaty that prevents nations claiming celestial bodies even if they have flags. Neil Armstrong was wasting his time.

Still, your clearly an Eddie Izzard fan and that's alright in my book.

I'm reminded of the Spanish woman who filed [http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/spain/8174180/Spanish-woman-claims-ownership-of-the-sun.html] for legal ownership of the sun.

Funny as it was, what exactly is it mocking? There was literally no invading in Halo, it was all "raze to the ground and hang everyone by their intestines" with the Covenant. Same with the USNC.

But this isn't a nation claiming the celestial body!

And, Neil Armstrong was posting an "America was here!" sign, not a "This is our land!" sign.

No joke, right this moment I'm listening to Flower of Scotland, having just finished Highland Cathedral.

Yeah...especially as the take off would have sent the flag flying anyway.

Hey...you know how the flag rules mean you can't lie flags on the ground? What about the ground on the Moon?

You got a flag, Mr. Martian? ;p

OT: Wait. The planet is artificial right? So they need to use a flag to claim this artificial construct, right?
Their flag is also artificial. <.<

So does that mean if we plant a flag on their flag, we own their flag, and by proxy we would own the planet the flag is planted on? >:D

Grey, Cory. These questions NEED answering!

Do you have bagpipes and drum?

I mean, it's all very well to have space marines in their fancy kit, but it you want to say "This is mine, keep off", blasting out "Scotland the Brave" just works better.
