Buzz Aldrin now first man on the moon
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.krinaman said:I really hope the poster doesn't realize Neil Armstrong died today.
Because that is completely inappropriate.
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.Dekker_Tifosi said:The thing is I just only read he died... Kinda unfortunate timing
Yeah sure, over 500 times. Never failed once. Well, except Apollo 13, but they got a backdated exemption for that...leftover pie said: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.
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.Cyivel said:I respect the OP
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.Rouetheday said:It must suck not having a sense of humour.
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.ggusta said:I respect the OP and it appears it could have just been a horrible timing coincidence, no?

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.
