Did you know...... when Neil Armstrong jumped down to the moons surface and said his .."that's one small step"line he also said after that ..."that's for you Mr Rosenbaum".Houston couldn't work it out and it was edited out . It all went back to when Neil was a young kid playing in his yard next to the neighbours window and he heard Mrs Rosenbaum yelling "ORAL SEX!!! ORAL SEX!!! you want oral sex!! you'll get oral sex when the kid next door walks on the moon! True story??
Good story...but not true. Armstrong was an Engineer, and he likely wanted to get the 'giant leap' comment out of the way so he could go back to what he was trained to do - observe and explore.
But here's some true moon trivia -
First words of the second man on the moon, Buzz Aldrin: "Magnificent desolation."
First words of the third man on the moon, Pete Conrad: "Whoopee! Man, that may have been a small one for Neil, but that's a long one for me." Conrad was only five foot six, and a wiseass. When asked what he thought during liftoff of Apollo 12 (which was struck by lightning a minute after liftoff), he said "All I could think about was, here I am sitting on top of $24 million worth of going to the moon, and the damn thing was built by low bid."
