20 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About The Moon Landing

Still a bit edgy, but more towards the interesting stuff side here.

1969:
As the guys were getting ready to lift off of the Moon to go back home, Buzz noticed something important was amiss. A switch from a kind of important circuit breaker had fallen out -- the breaker that allowed the Lunar Lander (LEM) to take off from the Moon...Buzz found the hole where the breaker used to be and jammed a pen in there to complete the circuit.

2015:
Listened to chess lecture. Dad calls. (???? Unknown actions). Sound card burns out.

:huh:

Arizona Hot:
Because we have a 50 50 chance of ending up in a dystopia like the classics but with better tech (than some of them, but not others!)

Then I suggest you start studying classic dystopias, so you can have a response prepared. Do you expect Big Brother to be watching you?

Would Buzz(Lightyear?) be proud of your solution to that?

Big brother(s), little brothers (corporations), and everyone on social media is watching already.

My current response is self-induced psychopathic defeatism to stay below the radar. "Everybody has things to hide. Some are less interesting than others."

Planned response #1: Everyone will eventually be assigned their very own agent. And since it's National Security, they might be just a wee cut above Go-Phone tech support.

So invite your agent to have Pizza!  :P

He is now!

So you can have your main volume "is what it is", but somehow the separate Wave ended up at zero and you can't see it on the simple master volume interface.
