NPR had a really nice interview this morning with Buzz Aldrin, who has apparently written a book not so much about the moon landing, which of course he highlights, but with what the Hell to do next now that you walked on the moon. What else does life have to offer once you've walked on the moon??

Plus, right away Aldrin got a shot off at Steve Inskeep, the interviewer, whom I intensely dislike because I think he's a douchebag. So that made me happy.

Buzz is quite a character. I read about how he punched some nutcase that was going around trying to say the moon landings were faked. The guy was about a foot taller and 100 pounds heavier than Buzz, but her wasn't deterred.

"The guy was about a foot taller and 100 pounds heavier than Buzz, but her wasn't deterred."

Yeah. Guys who are willing to sit on top of a huge tank of hydrogen explosive shouldn't be screwed with.

Agreed, 100%. This is a guy who agreed to be fired into space at about 5,000 miles per hour, and then fell to the moon's surface in something built out of tin foil.

If there is a greater test of cojones, it's news to me. Doing the same thing while juggling chainsaws, perhaps?
