Hard to get sources, but some common sense comes to mind as a good way to reason about this: launch could have been from a ship or submarine at sea, out of sight of the coast. That's not hard to do, in fact the USSR/Russia, France, UK, China, and the USA all have submarines capable of doing this. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ohio-class_submarine Any such ...

It's fake. Until the last couple of lines, the script matches almost exactly the snopes disproven internet joke: http://www.snopes.com/military/lighthouse.asp That includes number of degrees, direction of suggested change, number of support ships, etc. According to snopes it's been bouncing around the internet since 1996, but was published in various ...

Given that, every morning since ...

The first match from that sentence seems to be from a Podemos reddit channel tittled "¿Qué pregunta para el cambio en Andalucía le harías a Teresa Rodríguez?" (trans.

Disclaimer: This is difficult to actually prove without performing rather intrusive research into the lives of Spanish couples. For part 1: No, they don't work longer hours (source).
