Comment Re:Number of people who knew who it was in the sui (Score 1) 264

One of my favorite documentaries Discovery has done is called "When We Left Earth". They go through the entire NASA space program over three 2-hour episodes... really in depth, and extremely well produced. I've probably watched it a dozen times in the last two years.

They interviewed McCandless, and in particular this spacewalk with him in the photo, so I know exactly who Bruce McCandless is. On a somewhat unrelated note, if you've ever seen or read "Into the Wild", the main "character" (it's non-fiction), Chris McCandless, has/had a father who worked at NASA. So maybe Bruce is related in some way?

Anywho, I digress. But the only reason I clicked on this story was because I knew who McCandless is, and without even reading the summary in full (who does that anyways?!), I knew exactly which photo it was going to be.

Alright, I'll shutup now.

Yes, but Sedaris mentioned in his bit that in Texas, the blind needed a sighted companion with them... "... but in Michigan they're allowed to go it alone. Which raises the question, how do they find out whatever it is they just shot? And furthermore, how do they get it back home? Are the Michigan blind allowed to drive as well?" Very funny sketch from his essay 'Six to Eight Black Men.' Highly recommended.
