Aut cum scuto aut in scuto
Neil could have asked Mike on the open line, "Are you a Turtle?"A guaranteed drink back on Earth because there's no way Mike would have given the correct response, "you bet your sweet ass I am."
Personally, Armstrong doing that would have been much more memorable than what he said....even given that what he did say was iconic! It would have been the greatest joke EVER!!!!
There's no way the nuts in the UFO community.....and there are many.....would've let that slide as a joke....even some of the serious researchers would've had trouble letting that one go....
My favorite is the "Good luck Mr. Gorsky, wherever you are" story.
If that's true that's brilliant.
that's a different view of Armstrong than that first man movie.
...except Collins would have said "Mike" like God intended, not the currently popular "Mic," which should be pronounced "Mick."
What bullshit. Armstrong's "small step" comment was scripted by NASA long before the alleged moon landing. He got his line wrong.... it was written as "one small step for a man".But then Armstrong wasn't very good at following the script. After a couple of disastrous interviews upon return to earth he suddenly became a "recluse". Armstrong may have been a great pilot but he certainly was a lousy actor.
