Well, we all knew this day would inevitably arrive. Let all the horrible jokes begin!
No, I’m serious, go ahead, let The Duck have it with both barrels. I’m too busy cringing and trying to figure out what’s more ridiculous, his surf board, the rebreather rig or the fact that one of his “super powers” is “Chi”.
Hey, at least he doesn’t have “lava balls” like the Flamer.
On a more somber note, today marks the 25th anniversary of the Challenger explosion. Sally Karioth, a professor in Florida State University’s school of nursing who teaches something horrifically described as ‘death and dying classes’ was quoted in the Los Angeles Times: “That was kind of our pilot study for all the rest to come, I think. It was so ghastly.” – and, rather chillingly – “We’re used to everybody dying now.”
I was in college at the time and remember ditching Journalism in order to race to a nearby friend’s house in order to watch the launch.
No need to go any further than that.
If you were too young to have seen it (or weren’t even born yet), you can find the delightful footage just about anywhere. Just like the Twin Towers collapsing or JFK getting shot.
