The other funny thing is when Recommended For You window jumps out at you with Nancy’s pic on it. 😀 I’m like, no thanks. :DDD Log in to Reply Anonymous says November 18, 2011 at 6:00 PM Nice laugh if you have a disability. My kid brother falls over all time because of his disability, but he struggles up and soldiers on. People sometimes think that it is “hilarious'” or “awesome” too, and just makes him feel lesser as a person.. Bravest person I know. So in the end it is not very funny when you or can’t help falling over, now does it? Insensitive I’d call it. Log in to Reply Member Joshua Zelinsky says November 18, 2011 at 6:20 PM Dude. This isn’t a video of disabled people. This is a video of people falling down while they are on the freak’n moon. That means that these people travelled farther and faster than any other humans ever, with more engineers and scientists behind them than any other project ever, and they get their and then they can’t figure out how to stan up. Sometimes is ok to laugh. Lighten up. Log in to Reply Anonymous says November 18, 2011 at 10:41 PM You are not the only one that lives with someone disabled. This clip is not about disabled people falling down.

All it does is reenforce inequity. It is like the fourth or fifth wall. People just don’t get it. Break a leg – and laugh my head off. Charming.

Log in to Reply Jeroen Van Nieuwenhove says November 19, 2011 at 10:48 AM Some of these falls were clearly avoidable. They lucked out by not having their suit punctured or damaged or their visors cracked. I mean, just think about it. Taking such risks wouldn’t be deemed acceptable in a future moon landing operation, I hope.

Log in to Reply Richard says November 21, 2011 at 9:03 PM It is funny stuff but I am sure at the time it was anything but funny. If they had punctured the suit it would have been disastrous. I am sure in the great scheme of things in another 100-200 years these will be global bloopers that will be sure to raise a smile from kids that know everything about space. http://www.educatinghumanity.com Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
