Shatner made it to space and back
« on: October 13, 2021, 11:18:47 AM »
I am glad he made it.  Captain Kirk was a childhood hero of mine.  Amazing that he actually made it to space.  Life imitating art.

Addendum:  Keep in mind that this man is 90 years old and listening to him in the interview on the ground he is totally lucid with no evidence of slowing down.  No wheelchair, no cane, no mental fumbling.  Truly amazing.  My dad is aging the same way at 93 going on 94.  Diet and exercise.  Lifestyle choices.  Genetics you can't help, but you can certainly try to stay alive and well with choices made.  Many do not make good choices.  To me at least, it is very important to live the longest most fulfilling life you can, gentlemen.

Just wish he would have worn the Star Fleet uniform.

Small block eight so live she feels
There she's parked beside the curb
Engine revving to disturb
She's the princess from his past
Red paint gold stripes damned she's fast"

It is rumored when in orbit he said...

“Execute!”  Cadet Commander Captain Admiral James Tiberius Kirk

Nope, the original by Bill is much better and I know that once you heard Rocket Man, you just wanted more

This and more on his recorded album



Watch "William Shatner - Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds" on YouTube

The more I look at this new Shatner "episode" the more it looks  like an Austin Powers movie

We have been laughing so hard (excuse the pun)

Shatner = Austin Powers

Bezos = Doktor Evil

The Rocket = well "The Rocket" in the movie

Watch "William Shatner in TEARS After Blue Origin Space Flight" on YouTube

Tell me I'm wrong

There are striking similarities.  You are not wrong.
