[escepticos] ** A true story :-)

Puede que la corrala no sea el lugar más apropiado, pero la historia
merece la pena.

When Apollo Mission Astronaut Neil Armstrong first walked on the moon,
he not only gave his famous "one small step for man, one giant leap for
mankind" statement but followed it by several remarks, usual comments
about traffic between him, the other astronauts and Mission Control.
Just before he re-entered the lander, however, he made the enigmatic

"Good luck Mr. Gorsky."

Many people at NASA thought it was a casual remark concerning some rival
Soviet Cosmonaut.  However, upon checking, there was no Gorsky in either
the Russian or American space programs. Over the years many people
questioned Armstrong as to what the "Good luck Mr. Gorsky" statement
meant, but Armstrong always just smiled.

Just last year, (on July 5, 1995 in Tampa Bay FL) while answering
questions following a speech, a reporter brought up the 26 year old
question to Armstrong. This time he finally responded.  Mr. Gorsky had
finally died and so Neil Armstrong felt he could answer the question.
When he was a kid, he was playing baseball with a friend in the

His friend hit a fly ball which landed in the front of his neighbor's
bedroom windows. His neighbors were Mr. & Mrs. Gorsky.

As he leaned down to pick up the ball, young Armstrong heard Mrs. Gorsky
shouting at Mr. Gorsky.  "Oral sex!  You want oral sex?!  You'll get
oral sex when the kid next door walks on the moon!"
