      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

The Right Stuff

Recommended Posts

 

Astronauts wait their whole career for a chance to fly to space. Many never even get assigned to a mission. How hard is it to forgo drinking the night before that once-in-a-lifetime chance?

WTF?

It's like my pops told me - if you study for the test drunk, you gotta take the test drunk.

If you ever read the great Tom Wolfe book which you used for the title of yer thread "The Right Stuff", instead of watching a stupid, piss poor yet incorrect PC, F*ed up, watered down version of the movie, I'm sure you will figure this shit out on your own.

 

Get the book. Read it twice. Question answered. In spades. Not kidding. You will get your question answered, learn about the roots of popular culture and what is really important. Basically, you get everything except a reach-around happy finish.

 

The book. Read twice. Good luck

LOL. Being a space geek, that's one of my fave books, and even the movie is one of my faves, having seen it dozens of times. I found it amusing when this story broke, and the CNN headline said something like "Astronauts Don't Show the Right Stuff". Made me chuckle, because actually, drinking extensively prior to flight (and at lots of other times), is EXACTLY in keeping with the tradition of The Right Stuff...

Couldn't you drink beer by just pouring it out and carefully sucking on a big floating bubble of beer...

Pouring requires gravity.

I've heard the same thing said about pot.

 

 

I'm in space and I'm stoned. You guy's should come up to the space station we're going to have a raging party. :toad:

Exactly! For me, the book is on the top 100 best of all time. The movie, to me, did not make that exact point Wolf was aiming at, in fact, it seems to show the reverse.

 

To anyone who likes to read, defiantly read the right stuff before you open the last Harry Potter book: my opinion anyway.
