Dick Rutan (the man who flew nonstop around the planet in the carbon-fiber airplane built by his brother Burt) gave me an interview in which he talked exactly like this, but for real; and I realized that the other hundreds or thousands of interviewers he had dealt with had censored his speech for him, because, I suppose, he is an American hero. In the magazine I work for, we didn’t censor him, but since it is a “family publication” there was a spirited discussion of the best way to deal with the word “fuck”: Should it be f*** or f— or @#$%! or whatever. I can’t remember how that worked out. I just remember Rutan talking about the trouble with this fucking present being that he seems to forget we went to the fucking moon. One of these days I’ll get around to posting the full MP3 somewhere. It was quite an amazing rant.
Funniest goddamn dub-over ever motherfucking done. Fucking awesome.
That was fucking awesome.

I had to share this one from the Legal Satyricon simply because it’s so rare to get unedited footage of anything, let alone the first moon landing. The truth is out there, and now we can hear it. These tapes should be shown on the news.
See, if people had been able to hear this unedited audio in the first place, there wouldn’t be all these people still denying the moon landing really happened. It’s not that they find it incompatible with their Christian fundamentalist beliefs; they just weren’t ready to believe that former military personnel landed on the moon and were so non-chalant chatting about it on the audio. A few dozen “fucks,” “holy shits,” and “Jesus-H.-Christ-in-a-chicken-baskets” was all the Christian far-right wanted to hear.
