I really hope the poster doesn't realize Neil Armstrong died today.

Because that is completely inappropriate.

I give Dekker the benefit of the doubt. I guess he didn´t know that he died today. If it wasn´t happening, it would have been truly funny.

I disagree. Neil Armstrong is--and eternally will be--so high off the charts on the coolness factor, that no amount of joking could possibly diminish him.

RIP Mr. Armstrong. Civilian dude first on the moon!

The thing is I just only read he died... Kinda unfortunate timing
Sure you did. That's why you asked "Too soon?" 10 minutes after creating the thread. I don't see it as being too inappropriate, but don't pull an L. Armstrong and deny the crime.
 
The thing a lot of people think there never was a moon landing, they think it was just a conspiracy put together by the US to get one over the Russians.

And over the years these people have tried to expose this myth but they have just been labeled as bitter ex-astronauts or scientists with axes to grind.

The US went to the moon over 500 times, Armstrong was the first and he has done so much for the world of science his legacy should remain safe from these unfounded attacks.

R.I.P. Neil.

Yeah sure, over 500 times. Never failed once. Well, except Apollo 13, but they got a backdated exemption for that...

I respect the OP
I respect the OP and it appears it could have just been a horrible timing coincidence, no? But to knowingly post it now really says something about this forum.

It must suck not having a sense of humour.
I suppose making jokes about 9/11 on 9/12 was ok with you, too, then. There's a time for topical humor to work. Now is not that time.

Aside from that, I liked the episode of Seinfeld where George was competing against a mythical Neil for a woman's attention and Jerry asked what if it's Neil Armstrong and George answers then I guess I am going to Mars.

Don't you people get that the OP's overriding mission was to ridicule the Armstrong named Lance and not the one named Neil? I'm sure this comes off as rather patronising, but that can't be helped. :rolleyes:

I personally can't see the equivilency between the slaughter of 3000 men, women, and children and an 82 year old dying in his sleep, but maybe that's just me. And as for topical humor, the time for it to work is pretty much right now. That's the very definition of topical humor.

While you may have liked that particular episode of 'Seinfeld', ggusta, I imagine you fired off angry letters to NBC after the ones where George nearly killed the Bubble Boy and Susan dropped dead after licking those envelopes. :p

I thought it was a good piece of satire. NA's death was not an untimely one and there is no disrespect here.
 
When I read the news this morning I was myself contemplating how to turn this into a piece of satire without being slammed for inappropriateness. Especially as the first moonlandings have been disputed more, and with stronger evidence without dependancy of witnesses, than the cleanliness of Lance.

Buzz Aldrin now first man on the moon
Not so fast. I've heard reliable rumours that Leif Eriksson was 900 years ahead. Further investigation is going on.

Comon guys!, dont be so stuck up i found it to be rather funny.

And as someone else said, the joke is on Lance, comparing him to a legend like Neil Armstrong is a joke in itself.

Dekker, you shouldn't have made the comment about not knowing about his death. Your thread was perfectly fine. Some people just need to stop being soft and get a sense of humour.
