Earthrise-The Untold Story

Fantastic and  Historic

A few will remember it.  This was Christmas Eve 1968.  It is said to be the world’s most famous photograph, “Earthrise.”  It’s been on the cover of TIME and on stamps. But did you know it almost didn’t happen.  The site below is outstanding. It takes you right onto the module with the 3 astronauts and you hear them as they see it for the first time.  A picture like this, taken by a human, is not likely to happen again even in the distant future.

Ponder these


– Do twins ever realize that one of them is unplanned

– What if my dog only brings back my ball because he thinks I like throwing it?

– If poison expires, is it more poisonous or is it no longer poisonous?

– Which letter is silent in the word “Scent,” the S or the C?

– Why is the letter W, in English, called double U? Shouldn’t it be called double V?

– Maybe oxygen is slowly killing you and It just takes 75-100 years to fully work.

– Every time you clean something, you just make something else dirty.

– The word “swims” upside-down is still “swims”.

– Intentionally losing a game of rock, paper, scissors is just as hard as trying to win.

– 100 years ago everyone owned a horse and only the rich had cars. Today everyone has cars and only the rich own horses.

– Your future self is watching you right now through memories.

– The doctors that told Stephen Hawking he had two years to live in 1953 are probably dead.

– If you replace “W” with “T” in “What, Where and When”, you get the answer to each of them.

– Many animals probably need glasses, but nobody knows it.

– If you rip a hole in a net, there are actually fewer holes in it than there were before.

· If 2/2/22 falls on a Tuesday, we’ll just call it “2’s Day”.  (It does fall on a Tuesday)

– 100 years ago a Twenty Dollar bill and a Twenty Dollar gold piece were interchangeable. Either one would buy a new suit, new shoes and a night on the town. The Twenty Dollar gold piece will still do that.

  COOL MESSAGE BY A WIFE: Dear Mother-in-law, Don’t teach me how to handle my children. I am living with one of your’s and he needs a lot of improvement!?


When a married man says, I WILL THINK ABOUT IT – what he really means is

that he doesn’t know his wife’s opinion yet.

What should I give him to cure it?”
