Moon Stupid

We went to the moon. If you think we didn't then you are the title of this post:)

I was a boy when man landed on the moon. I was on a vacation trip with my parents in Canada.
In a small cafe in Quebec I watched Neil Armstrong set his foot on the moon. The small TV was on a shelf over the pie counter. Everyone was speaking French except for three Americans.

We tried to eat what passed for a hamburger but I was too excited to eat. Moments before Neil planted his foot on another world everyone got quiet. Everything stopped in that tiny cafe.

The cook and the waitresses stopped working and watched. No one ate. We were all watching that little TV.

Don't be Moon Stupid. We went to the moon.

Are we stupid for not going there again? I wasn´t even alive when they did it.

I feel I grew up in a very fun time to be a little boy. Dreams didn't have limits when I was a child.

I think we waste a lot time and money finding better ways to kill each other when we as a global community could explore space together.

I think we should go back to the moon as one world and not a single nation.

"Moon Stupid"! Robert, this sure is a catchy phrase. Had me laughing out loud! ~Nards

Thanks Nards

I'm so tired of stupid people believing stupid things and then telling me I'm stupid for believing we went to the moon.

I am smart enough to know I am stupid at many things. I have weak math skills and have no musical ability.

I know a little about space travel as I have read thousands of books on that subject.

I know we went to the moon and I'm glad I gave you a laugh:)

Can't believe people have the audacity to say this never happened. To celebrate the 40th anniversary, our English TV has had many a programme on of late about Nassa and the space programme. I too can remember where we were glued to the TV watching that first step on the moon. What a feat of science and bravery.
