How things have changed. If the US were to land on the moon today, we'd probably leave it up to no-bid outside contractors, and an insurgency would immediately appear on the lunar surface demanding that we quit occupying their satellite.

That was interesting. I've never heard the unedited version before. Still, I think they must have cut out Neil Armstrong's first words on the moon:

"That's one small step for man...one giant leap for mankind. Oh, shit, I fucked that up. I was supposed to say 'a' man. Houston, can I get a do-over?"

"Tranquilty Base, negatory on the do-over. We'll edit it for broadcast. Just try not to fuck anything else up, OK? Jesus Christ. Over."
