Moon Landing

I was bored so I've just been looking at pretty pictures on Encarta, and I decided to look for a video of the moon landing (I'd never managed to find one) but it didn't have it.
However I managed, this time, to find a nice high–quality video online (here if you want to see). I, personally, believe the moon landing was real; I can think of too many ways to pooh–pooh the Against arguments.
Anyway, watching it I found probably the most conclusive evidence for the landing; when he steps out of the pod thing, he says:

That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind

He was supposed to say (and this is also the most logical thing to say):

That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind

If billions of dollars were being spent to fake the moon landing, then they'd have damn well made sure the actors got their lines right…

Update: Here is an MP3 I recorded from the video I downloaded with "for man" repeated 9 times after the first to give you a chance to listen carefully to see that there is no "a".

    He did say "a man", but it's blurred by static. Making it seem more real? Maybe.

  2. Ah, no. See, this is why I wanted a video. He definately says "for man". His speech flows beautifully from "for" to "man" with no static, and no time for an "a". I agree with Snopes (there's a link from "He was supposed to say" in the entry) that they blamed static to cover up Armstrong fluffing the soundbite in the heat of the moment.

    I've added a link to an MP3 I did with 9 repeats of "for man".
