Another little history lesson for the day!
 
In case you didn't already know this little tidbit of trivia, it might make you chuckle when you read it.
 
On July 20, 1969, as commander of the Apollo 11 Lunar Module, Neil Armstrong was the first person to set foot on the moon.
 
His words, "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind", were televised to earth and heard by millions. But just before he re-entered the 'lander', he made the enigmatic remark, "Good luck, Mr. Gorsky".  Many people at NASA though 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 Armstrong was questioned as to what the 'good luck, Mr. Gorsky' statement meant, but he always just smiled.
 
On July 5, 1995, in Tampa Bay, Florida , 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 died, so Neil Armstrong felt he could now answer the question.
 
In 1938, when he was a kid playing baseball with a friend in his backyard, his friend hit the ball, which landed in the neighbor's yard by their bedroom window. His neighbors were Mr. and  Mrs. Gorsky.

While he
leaned down to pick up the ball, young Armstrong heard Mrs. Gorsky shouting at Mr. Gorsky:
 
"SEX! YOU WANT SEX?! YOU'LL GET SEX WHEN THE KID NEXT DOOR WALKS ON THE MOON!"
TRUE STORY!
