    For those of you old enough, what were you doing 40 years ago when man first walked on the moon?

    How old were you (about, for those who don't want to reveal how old you are, lol)
    What were you doing?
    Do you remember hearing/seeing Walter Croncite on TV?

    I personally am about 12 years too young...

    Well I didn't really believe him, but I don't know, I can't really say, I mean, how can I even know? Maybe JFK was also secretly a member of the American Socialist Party?

    O and yeah he totally is a fag.
    I even met him in person, I should know.

    I was running guns across the Mexican border into Texas for a militant group of Mexico loyalists who were, at the time, based in Texas.

    I was one year old. So likely, I was irritating my parents and babbling incoherently and pooping in my diapers.

    I watched the moon landing in my living room. I was 5, I was into it big time. I don't remember Cronkite at all, but I remember thinking it looked like a science fiction movie. Anyway, it was pretty awesome and i was all about the rocketships for quite a while afterwards.

    Still freaks me out a little that we went there.

    I was in a world that didn't make much sense. Everyday I kept seeing people disappear, then one day I woke up and I was a real boy.
