Here is a fact:

No TV network broke into their programming to announce his passing.

When someone can tell me how the fark that happened, then I will start to watch your shiatty shows again

The news agencies did not report it right away because it is uncool to have your own opinions, have balls of steel, go against the grain, and yet be a patriot with a fark you attitude. He was old school and we should all be ashamed of what pussies we have become.

He died without seeing several generations go back. That's probably the saddest thing.

OnlyM3: No TV network broke into their programming to announce his passing.


Damn it as a person who watched NASA press conferences for Curiosity every day the week it landed, as someone who routinely checks for the raw images page for new images, etc I think I can say that I am a big fan of space.

But I don't see why any TV network would break into programming to announce the passing. I am sure they all mentioned it on their regularly scheduled newscasts just like they do for most any notable person that dies. It does not make people more informed to be informed that very second. And I dare say that unless someone is on vacation away from media and the Internet, that very close to everyone who would cared to have known does know that Armstrong has died.

AndreMA: Obama ordered flags at Federal facilities to fly at half-mast for 4 (5?) days in the wake of the Sihk temple shootings. I'm waiting to see what he does now.


And you really hope he does nothing so it justifies your derp? I really hope that's not your point, but if it is fark you. Trolling a thread about an American hero's death is so Westboro. Take that shiat to the politics thread. I'd farking hurt someone for that kind of disrespect right now IRL.

Richard Saunders: When Neil Armstrong was in middle school, his English teacher assigned an essay: "What is courage?"
Neil received an A+ for turning in a blank page with only his name at the top.


What is that? Some proto-Chuck Norris joke?

Seriously? I wasn't watching TV at the time, wouldn't have noticed that. That is pretty sad. He wasn't young, no doubt they all had a canned obit/tribute peace ready to go, the least they could have done would be to air that, a 5 minute segment anyway.

The kids, and even my generation (no moon, but space shuttles) don't seem to realize the impact of this. He walked... on.... the... farking... MOON.
