Sometimes as we chatter around in these forums things get a little serious. Some might enjoy the below story for a little humor.

On July 20, 1969, as Commander of the Apollo 11 Lunar Module, Neil Armstrong was the first person to set foot on the moon. His first words after stepping on the moon, "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind," were televised
to Earth and heard by millions, but just before he reentered the landau, he made the enigmatic remark "Good luck, Mr. Grossly."

Many people at NASA thought it was a casual remark concerning some rival soviet cosmonaut. However, upon checking, there was no Grossly in either the Russian or American space programs. Over the years many people questioned Armstrong as to what the "Good luck, Mr. Grossly" statement
meant, but Armstrong always just smiled.

On July 5, 1995, in Tampa Bay, Florida, while answering questions following a speech, a reporter brought up the 26-year-old question to Armstrong. This time he finally responded. Mr. Grossly had died, so Neil Armstrong felt he could answer the question.

In 1938 when he was a kid in a small midwest town, he was playing baseball with a friend in the backyard. His friend hit the ball, which landed in his neighbor's yard by the bedroom windows. His neighbors were Mr. and Mrs. Grossly. As he leaned down to pick up the ball, young Armstrong heard Mrs. Grossly shouting at Mr. Grossly.

"Sex! You want SEX??!! You'll get sex when the kid next door walks on the moon!!"

Yeah, funny, but I read this story somewhere else with the guy's name being Mr. Gorsky, which would seem more appropriate for a Soviet cosmonaut. As for sex, the woman would have said:
"Oral sex! You want oral sex?! You'll get oral sex when the kid next door walks on the moon!"

As they say in Portuguese: quem conta um conto aumenta um ponto, or in this case, diminiu um ponto.

Obrigado anyway for bringing a light little tale.
