“We were laying in bed just the other night, looking at the ceiling, and I said: ‘You know, it’s been thirty years, and it’s never felt worn. There’s never been a sense of tiredness with you.’”

I can dig it. Me and my fella too. Source: humansofnewyork

Constructing the Spacesuits of Apollo 11

The Apollo 11 astronauts safely returned to Earth 45 years ago on July 24, 1969, after their successful mission to the surface of the Moon. Their mission depended on carefully engineered spacesuits to protect them from the rigors of space while also enabling them to explore the surface of the Moon. Moonwalk One shows the construction of a spacesuit as we hear the women who sew and manufacture it speaking about their work and the idea of going into space. They well understood the importance of their work. One tiny defect could easily put an astronaut’s life at risk.

Moonwalk One, ca. 1970

Evening Post: August 12, 1899.
"She immediately alighted, caught hold of the astonished youth, and gave him a sound thrashing, using her fists in a scientific fashion…”

I would love to know what this means.

I think that might be code for “punched him in the balls with devastating accuracy”.

I haven’t seen this in a while. It never gets old.


And then she’d back up and DO IT AGAIN.

Superman, black would be the coolest dude in the world. Imagine Sam Jackson in a cape. Running around. That would be a good movie.
I think what a lot of people don’t get is, these people aren’t real. If you cast a black dude as John F Kennedy, that’s wrong. If you cast a white dude as Martin Luther King, that’s wrong. These people aren’t real. The suits aren’t real. There aren’t really superheroes in the world.
At some point in time, you have to steep yourself in reality and say, ‘hey, it’s not about what they look like, it’s about casting a good actor in the role. If you’re sitting at home and you can’t see a black guy as Nick Fury, maybe there’s something wrong with you.


All respect to Sam Jackson but I’d be down with Anthony Mackie himself as Supes.
