“In Event of Moon Disaster”, July 18, 1969.
White House speechwriter, William Safire, was asked to write a speech that President Nixon would make in case the Apollo 11 astronauts were stranded on the Moon.
It was never delivered, and this speech was quietly tucked away into Nixon’s records.

Dogs with vitiligo, a condition that causes depigmentation on skin. The condition doesn’t harm the animal, it only affects the colour. Vitiligo seems to be most common on black and tan coloured dogs.

If Earth was the size of a basketball, all of its water would fit into a ping pong ball.
How much water is that? It’s roughly 326 million cubic miles (1.332 billion cubic kilometers), according to a recent study from the U.S. Geological Survey. Some 72 percent of Earth is covered in water, but 97 percent of that is salty ocean water and not suitable for drinking.
“There’s not a lot of water on Earth at all,” said David Gallo, an oceanographer at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) in Massachusetts.

Holy dick, I don’t even know what Warhead candy is but I want to eat this thing.
Australia, why are you Outer Space?
This is so weird! Read it out loud stressing a different word each time!
Language and speech never fail to fascinate me.
