Friday Bits of Tid - First American Spacewalk Edition

Greetings and salutations, y'all. We survived another week, despite the best efforts of the rest of the world.

Give yourself a pat on the back. These days, you deserve one.

On this day in 1965 Major Edward H. White became the first American astronaut to venture outside a spacecraft. The Gemini program was an essential part of our race to the Moon. While not quite as popular as the other programs, it laid the groundwork for the Apollo missions. Legend has it that Gus Grissom and John Young, the two astonauts in the first manned Gemini mission, were going to crack a joke after their flight: they wanted to announce their engagement at the press conference.

You gotta love pilot humor.

A-OK, back to Earth for today's tidding.

When tap dancing shoes are outlawed, only outlaws will have tap dancing shoes.

Certainly, this has never happened before. Grandma beats would-be robber with cane.

You can't make this stuff up. Brazil may impose warning labels on underwear. "Warning. Accidents Cause People."

According to Michelle Obama, this guy should've been dead a long time ago. Man eats 25,000th Big Mac. Goes to show what she knows.

Duuude, did you, like, see where this totally cool new, like, pot superstore is gonna open up? Yeah man, it's gonna be called "Home DePot." Like, a buch of us went over there last week, but we can't, like, remember where it is now. Bummer, duuuude.

Kansas City police shoot concrete alligator. Aren't these guys supposed to have college degrees?

And finally, Lt. Commander Data raps about his cat, Spot.

Have a good'un, y'all.
