Wait.  Was there a joke in the headline?

Actually, he announced who the 2nd shooter was, but NASA dubbed over it with some corny line.

Ah yes. We needed a reminder of what passes for news among American outlets.

... Did I really say American outlets? Really, self?
 
2013-01-02 08:52:41 AM  
Nice one sub-

What were talking about?
 
2013-01-02 08:53:39 AM  
Oh goody. I get to explain it.
Doctor Who...
The race is referred to as the Silents or Silence...
You can't remember anything about them the moment you look away from them, but whatever they say when you do, is interpreted by your brain as a post-hypnotic suggestion. Unaware, one slipped up and said you should kill us all on sight to someone making a video recording of it. To rid the planet of them, The Doctor inserts the video into the live feed of the moon landing. It is absolutely freaking brilliant.

If he forgot the "a" why didn't they just do a retake?
 
2013-01-02 08:56:06 AM  
Well, if he got the line wrong, why didn't they just have him reshoot the scene or dub over with new audio? George Lucas couldn't have missed something like that.
 
2013-01-02 08:56:26 AM  
An I the only one who heard him say "a" just fine all these years, and was really confused when people said he left out the "a"?

/sounds like "feraman"
/doesn't get headline either

Can we stop pretending "Doctor Who" is or ever was a good show? You're not more sophisticated or smarter for liking some hack British sci-fi show.

FTA:"It's a shame we can't ask the space man himself. Neil passed away in August of this year at the age of 82."

Yeah, it's a real shame no one ever asked him about that before he died, right? Also a real coincidence this "controversy" was deliberately stirred up again after his death.

Seriously, shut the f*ck up and find a thread where they're talking about a show you like.

Who fans may be "sci-fi hipsters," but people who show up in threads just to insult everyone else's taste are just plain assholes.

Asshole.

I agree. There's a whole mentality that exists where people get infuriated when people like things that they don't, and conversely they are also infuriated when things they like are loved by everyone. I think it has always existed, and has become much more pronounced now that the internet provides such instant feedback.

I hope someone is doing a study on this to understand it better. It's like people feel their whole sense of self is invalidated if everyone else's opinions and taste doesn't align with them. It's absurd, but it's obvious that this issue is widespread.

Whether he said "man" or "a man" has been a bone of contention for years.

If you listen to the actual recording, there is static all through it, but not really much at the beginning of
his statement.  It doesn't sound like he said "a man" to me, but the audio fidelity even without the static
is not good, and considering his midwestern accent it may well be that he swallowed the "a" when he said
the word "for", which comes out sounding like "fer", so the combination of "for a man" could have been
more like "fera man".

Regardless:  it was an excellent quote that, even if it got a little mangled in the telling still carried a fine
sense of the momentous achievement it commemorated.

dammit, i have a type in there. It should read "are also infuriated when things they like aren't loved by everyone".

How did a Neil Armstrong thread turn into a Dr. Who debate? If there is a less justified reason for calling someone an asshole then their opinion on episodic tv, I have not seen it. Grow up, people.

I can't wait to tell my parents that when we were watching it together on PBS in the 80s that we were hipsters.

/God forbid a decades old show have faaaaans.
