I watched it too, dropped everything to do it. Amazing. We didn't get 
totality here but it was about 80%.

I read recently that the flat-earther movement is growing. That's 
amazing too. Some people will believe anything.

Years later when asked by management to duplicate the functions of an app I created so that those functionalities could be incorporated into that team's main app, that same programmer concluded it would be impractical because my app did way more than they realized.

They said the same thing about HyperCard back in the day, and HC wasn't 
nearly as advanced as LC is now. Some people will believe anything...
