They don't make 'em like that any more do they?

So glad Neil Armstrong was involved today, he's a bit of a recluse and it wouldn't have been the same without him.

where did you see it Headfairy? I've been looking online but can't find it.

I love the moon landings - such heroic stuff!

I was watching on News24... they had the whole press conference on. Maybe I'm just a hormonal wreck... but they're so dignified those old guys!

I seen him, whne I was nearly 2. Obviously I can't remember it

Ok now this sounds really dumb, but I wish i'd been around to see it. Must have been sooo exciting (in context of course).. now we'd be a bit meh, but then... they went to the moon in a space ship which was marginally less technically advanced than the average BMW!
