Stuff like this is why Quora has become my favorite place on the internet

I mean, where else can you ask a question about the Apollo 13 astronauts and get an answer from one of the pilots WHO ACTUALLY PICKED THEM UP after they splashed down?

The most critical article you’ll read about critics this year
