Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Someday your life will flash in front of your eyes. Make sure it is worth watching.

Apollo 15 astronaut Jim Irwin developed a heart anomaly during his mission, and would eventually suffer 3 heart attacks. The last was fatal at age 61, the youngest age at death of all the 12 moonwalkers.


“Government has three primary functions. It should provide for military defense of the nation. It should enforce contracts between individuals. It should protect citizens from crimes against themselves or their property. When government-- in pursuit of good intentions tries to rearrange the economy, legislate morality, or help special interests, the cost comes in inefficiency, lack of motivation, and loss of freedom. Government should be a referee, not an active player.” - Milton Friedman

Thanks for posting OG! I enjoy the little details, and that was interesting.

BTW, Astronaut John Young's heart rate (Gemini pilot, walked on the Moon) never went above 70bpm while piloting the first manned launch of the Space Shuttle.
Nerves of steel.

I think it was 90, but still... cowboy


In all my years I've never seen the like. It has to be more than a hundred sea miles and he brings us up on his tail. That's seamanship, Mr. Pullings. My God, that's seamanship!
