Astronauts Gone Wild?  
Some of you may know who Bart Sibrel is. For those who don't, Mr. Sibrel is one of the foremost conspiracy theorists that the Apollo moon landings were faked. For those of you who think that they did happen, and get sick of people like this, here's a video of 72-year-old Buzz Aldrin punching Bart Sibrel in the face.

Peak Physical Shape? Strengthened by Space Rays? Alien Double?
So we're on the same page, I should let you know that this is, bar none, one of my favorite events in recent history. It's one of those little news anecdotes I bring up from time to time. It's too beautiful not to pass on. Though the link doesn't show it, if I'm not mistaken, Bart goes DOWN, too.

Because, 72 or no, you don't FUCK with an astronaut.

Punching people in the face is like shaking hands for Buzz Aldrin, though. I actually met and talked to Mr. Aldrin twice at film premieres when I was working as a host, and he punched me in the face both times.

That's just how astronauts are.
It's part of their culture's traditions. It's on the same level as, say, prayer or harvest festivals or oppressing women for thousands of years in the name of spirituality.

We need to respect it, though it may differ from our own beliefs.

Tolerance, friend. Tolerance.

That was fucking WONDERFUL.

Kick his ASS, Aldrin!
