You missed an F-bomb in the "Onions" bit.

Oopsie. Well it was bound to happen sooner or later. And what better segment for it to occur in.

I've fixed the problem on all subsequent downloads.

Using that moon logic I can now visit the dentist by going into the parking lot and edging around the building! Yay!

(No offense intended to Michael Collins. He is great and tremendously brave going out there not knowing whether or not he would ever return alive. Just saying I don't really buy Steve's logic and Collins was brave enough whether he set boot down on regolith or not.)

I still think that travelling the ~384000 km out there counts as going to. It makes grammatical sense to me.

You definitely went to the dentist but you didn't get any dentistry done. The turtles went to the moon but they didn't touch the surface.

If Vince went and sat in the Dentist's office then chickened out and came home and I asked him 'Did you go to the dentist' his response could be that he did "go" to the dentist but he wouldn't be answering the question that I had asked truthfully given the context.

Sometimes context is a valuable way to help yourself out of semantic situations. Which is why it was so valuable in the original audio that when I told Greg that two creatures had been to the moon he asked the question "Landed on the moon?" and I said "yes".

Another great episode.

One minor problem for me during your discussions about 'Pandora chest' because I usually hear it as Pandora's box' so this time it called forth images of surgery and chest spreaders on the poor women. In the past such as episode 14 the term 'Pandora's box' was used.

Consider this: if flying to the moon involved orbiting it in a capsule, shouldn't we be celebrating Apollo 8 instead of 11 as the first time humans went to another world?

Why is it Neil Armstrong that people remember and not Jim Lovell?

I say this knowing Wikipedia defines Jim Lovell as having been to the moon despite never landing. I just find the logic hard to get my head around. Are my analogies just bad?

EDIT: although I wonder if it really matters. Probably not. shrug

On reflection stuff coming out of Pandora's Box probably doesn't sound any better.
