It was Buzz Aldrin’s 89th birthday yesterday. Buzz Aldrin is, of course, the second human being to ever walk on the surface of the Moon. A truly mind-bending achievement driven by ideological dick-waving and a testament to the frankly terrifying scale of human ingenuity. After plodding about on terra firma with our hairless monkey feet for millennia, humanity got bored and invented flight at the turn of the century and then, not even six bloody decades later, leapt up into the heavens and landed on our silent and up until then solitary solar partner. Aldrin was the second set of feet upon that hallowed surface, and he still walks among us, a living reminder of glimpsed greatness that we must never forget.
He also totally lamped a guy in the face after the guy got in his face and called him a liar and a coward.
It's Buzz Aldrin's 89th birthday today. Let's not forget the time he punched a moon landing denier in the face. pic.twitter.com/Zu7flIhNDY— Meredith Frost (@MeredithFrost) January 20, 2019
That’s Bart Sibrel, well known Moon landing denier. Aldrin was not charged for punching him in the face.
