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.

    Oh noes! Why, somebody might be confronted with their Puritannical objection to the human form. What'rewegonnado?!?!?!

    That must suck to be such a walking contradiction. Go ahead and reconcile these two things: "I believe in a Creator God who is perfect in every way and therefore made us as he intended us to be" and "The human form is indecent, shameful, and must be covered up at all times or I will get very offended and butthurt and raise a lot of drama." That's Puritanism for you.

    Course the easily offended need to fuck off no matter why they're easily offended. This particular one though is different from your run-of-the-mill easily offended person who's just a pansy.

    ... by Jimi Hendrix. I'm in my early 30's, and personally, I think the women from the late 60's are just plain gorgeous. Not hyped up, no plastic surgery, just a bit of makeup... But maybe i'm just one of those ala natural guys when it comes to women.

            Does that include people who are offended by other peoples morals?

    Being offended is a quick and easy power trip: it's a way to control other people.

    "Oh I'm offended by your actions! And because I'm offended, YOU are the one that has to change their behavior! Because I can't be troubled to: turn off the TV, radio, computer; change channels or web page; not buy the book; etc.. And no, I am unable to monitor my children therefore; everyone else has to change their behavior just so my children don't see or hear anything that I may find offensive."

    Well, there's more of them to choose from.

    And women's standards for acceptable conduct have changed, so more of them consider standing in front of a camera for money an acceptable practice.

    And technology for manipulating their looks, in makeup and exercise physiology and software, has improved.

    And photographers have learned from decades of research by the pioneers of Playboy how to make someone look better than they generally do.

    And women have learned from the same sources what men really like them to look like.

    It's unlikely that the median or average have changed much. But the selection, presentation, and manipulation are much more refined.

    As an example of presentation and manipulation, but not so much selection, I give you Katy Perry. With [aceshowbiz.com] and without [hotmommagossip.com] her cloaking device turned on.

    They are photoshopped to remove blemishes, expand breasts, erase fat knees, give them flatter butts, and so on.

    Give... them... FLATTER butts? Flatter butts, really, that's what men want today, girls who look like prepubescent boys? Sorry, I'm with Sir Mix-a-Lot on this one.

    Yeah, it's a strange thing. I always figure that all men everywhere love reasonably large, round butts. But then every once in a while I run into a man that really does prefer flat, pancake looking butts. He will even call a woman who is in great shape with a small waist who has a big butt and hips "fat." I just don't get it.

    Oh, toddle off. As a member of the moral community, I can definitively say that the vast majority of us have no interesting in micromanaging your life.

    Could you do us all a favour then and tell your "minority" to STFU? When you let them do all the talking, they'll naturally come to represent both them and you.

    Getting back on topic, this story is more than a little disconcerting. I was raised to believe that the Moon landings represented the pinnacle of American gumption, values, and achievement. And now, all of these years later, we discover that this seminal event was corrupted by the presence of hardcore pornography. Maybe I shouldn't act surprised, but I always thought that the NASA astronauts were better people than that.

    Read The Right Stuff. They weren't better men, they were adventurous men. Your mistake.

    Have you seen wonens jeans? they make their asses look like guy ass.

    Nothing is more pleasurable than a woman with a shapely ass where the jeans cut in to show off each cheek. Jeans that bridge the butt crack are a crime.

    You are not alone. 1966 through 1973 was a magical time. The sexual revolution was in full swing but the style was still natural, innocent and unconsciously sexual. There hasn't been anything like it since.
