I love this

Portions of the Apollo 11 mission are dramatized in the HBO mini-series From the Earth to the Moon episode entitled “Mare Tranquilitatis”. In that episode, Michael Collins made the following suggestion as to what Armstrong should say upon stepping onto the lunar surface: “If you had any balls, you’d say ‘Oh, my God, what is that thing?’ then scream and cut your mic.”

This whole post is shamelessly ripped off from HMS Defiant (who took it from Daily Timewaster.) Because it makes me laugh.

We are now in the realm not of plagiarism, but of research.
