Good Luck Mr. Gorsky
Astronaut Neil Armstrong made a strange remark while on the mission to the moon that was caught in the communication traffic between mission control: “Good luck Mr. Gorsky!”. Goes the urban myth that 26 years later he finally conceded a young reporter the explanation. When he was a kid he overheard the neighbours, Ms. Gorsky shouting at Mr. Gorsky while playing in the backyard: “Sex! You want sex?! You’ll get sex when the kid next door walks on the moon!”.


Deadly Bananas
You were not supposed to panic but hey! you are probably eating bananas from Costa Rica infected with a bacteria that will eat your flesh out. At a rate of 2 to 3 cm of flesh per hour. Amputation is certain, death is likely!


Chicken, Cow, Duck or…?
Ever wondered what happened to that chinese old man around the block who died but you never heard of any funeral? He is probably on your Chop Suey! True story!
