Playmate Photo From Apollo 12 Up For Auction 211

Kilrah_il writes "When the Apollo 12 crew left Earth for a trip to the Moon, they did not know that the ground crew hid a surprise in one of the command module lockers: a calendar photo of Playboy Playmate DeDe Lind. Now this card is offered for auction, after being kept in the personal collection of command module pilot Richard Gordon, who added the following memo: 'This is to certify that the accompanying 4.5" x 6.25" cue card did, indeed, accompany me on my trip to the moon in the Command Module Yankee Clipper aboard the historic Apollo 12 lunar landing mission. This cue card, which flew with me to the moon, has been in my sole possession and part of my personal space collection since my return from the moon in 1969 aboard America's second lunar landing mission, and it remains one of the all-time greatest Apollo era astronaut "Gotcha's!"' For those interested, the minimum bid is $1000." Warning, contains pixelated nudity.

    To the younger generations who are easily corrupted by things like the hot coffee mod, pixelated nudity is even more dangerous than clear unfiltered nudity.

    "Houston, I'm sending both of the other Astronauts out for a spacewalk. I found this Playmate photo here, and need some private time to have a wank. Ha! All you 'mile high club' folks can kiss my hairy ass. I'm halfway to the moon and having 'one off the wrist'! Beat that!"

  • You can't spell "pixelated nudity" without "nudity". And you can't put that in a Slashdot summary without slashdotting the site, it seems . . .

    Warning, contains pixelated nudity

    I appreciate the warning, so I won't waste time clicking on it - what with it being pixelated.

  • The site appears to have slashdotted by zillions of horny geeks.

      Not helped by the fact that lots of us are home from work because of the snow, and need porn today!

    • Adding the word "horny" after "geek" means you must be on the staff of the Department of Redundancy Department, posting during your coffee break.

      I know of no Medicine fit to diminish the violent natural inclination you mention; and if I did, I think I should not communicate it to you. Marriage is the proper Remedy. It is the most natural State of Man, and therefore the State in which you will find solid Happiness. Your Reason against entering into it at present appears to be not well founded. The Circumstantial Advantages you have in View by Postponing it, are not only uncertain, but they are small in comparison with the Thing itself, the being married and settled. It is the Man and Woman united that makes the complete Being. Separate she wants his force of Body and Strength of Reason; he her Softness, Sensibility and acute Discernment. Together they are most likely to succeed in the World. A single Man has not nearly the Value he would have in that State of Union. He is an incomplete Animal. He resembles the odd Half of a Pair of Scissors.

      If you get a prudent, healthy wife, your Industry in your Profession, with her good Economy, will be a Fortune sufficient.

      But if you will not take this Counsel, and persist in thinking that Commerce with the Sex is inevitable, then I repeat my former Advice that in your Amours you should prefer old Women to young ones. This you call a Paradox, and demand my reasons. They are these:

      1. Because they have more Knowledge of the world, and their Minds are better stored with Observations; their conversation is more improving, and more lastingly agreeable.

      2. Because when Women cease to be handsome, they study to be good. To maintain their Influence over Man, they supply the Diminution of Beauty by an Augmentation of Utility. They learn to do a thousand Services, small and great, and are the most tender and useful of Friends when you are sick. Thus they continue amiable. And hence there is hardly such a thing to be found as an Old Woman who is not a good Woman.

      3. Because there is no hazard of children, which irregularly produced may be attended with much inconvenience.

      4. Because through more Experience they are more prudent and discreet in conducting an Intrigue to prevent Suspicion. The Commerce with them is therefore safer with regard to your reputation; and regard to theirs, if the Affair should happen to be known, considerate People might be inclined to excuse an old Woman, who would kindly take care of a young Man, form his manners by her good Councils, and prevent his ruining his Health and Fortune among mercenary Prostitutes.

      5. Because in every Animal that walks upright, the Deficiency of the Fluids that fill the Muscles appears first in the highest Part. The Face first grows lank and Wrinkled; then the Neck; then the Breast and Arms; the lower parts continuing to the last as plump as ever; so that covering all above with a Basket, and regarding only what is below the Girdle, it is impossible of two Women to know an old one from a young one. And as in the Dark all Cats are grey, the Pleasure of Corporal Enjoyment with an old Woman is at least equal and frequently superior; every Knack being by Practice capable by improvement.

      6. Because the sin is less. The Debauching of a Virgin may be her Ruin, and make her Life unhappy.

      7. Because the Compunction is less. The having made a young Girl miserable may give you frequent bitter Reflections; none of which can attend making an old Woman happy.

      8. 8th & lastly. They are so grateful!!!

      Thus much for my Paradox. But still I advise you to marry immediately; being sincerely

      Your Affectionate Friend,

      Benj. Franklin

      ... just a few things to consider... ;)

        Considering his reported behaviour while in Paris, he may have married old, but he didn't limit himself to having sex with old.

    And replace any apollo era astronauts or ride along with any of them it would be the crew of Apollo 12. They had fun, a LOT of fun on that mission and swore and cussed a lot too.

    Like a pirate ship, yar...

    • by caseih ( 160668 )

      From what I heard, one of the Apollo 13 astronauts remarked that the movie was pretty accurate to the real event, save for the swearing.
