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 COM
traffic between him, the other astronauts and Mission Control. Before he
re-entered the lander, he made the enigmatic remark "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 nor American space programs. Over the years, many people had
questioned him as to what the "Good luck, Mr. Gorsky" statement meant.
July 5, in
Tampa Bay, FL, while answering questions following a speech, a reporter
brought up the 26 year old question to Armstrong. He finally responded.
As it turned out Mr. Gorsky had died and so Armstrong felt he could answer
When he was a kid, Neil was playing baseball with his brother in the
backyard. His brother hit a fly ball which landed in front of his
neighbors' bedroom window. The neighbors were Mr. and Mrs. Gorksy.
As he leaned down to pick up the ball, he heard Mrs. Gorsky shouting
at Mr. Gorsky, "Oral sex? Oral sex you want? You'll get oral sex
when the kid next door walks on the moon!"
