    What I "liked" about this thread was the fact that oldngray had the respect to start a thread letting us know that a Mercury Seven hero has passed away. I was a small child when these guys were the first Americans in space, everybody wanted to grow up to become an astronaut. They had "The Right Stuff", as the book and following movie reminds us.

    I thought of "The Right Stuff" myself. Scott Carpenter and the early astronauts were heroes to a generation.

    pickup was just ​feigning obtuseness ... which is one of his better attributes. :wink2:

    I knew he was being funny too, I was just trying to explain why people "like" a post containing sad news.

    I admire pickup.This post gave me stupefaction.He is the bellwether of conviviality.
    He is unparagoned and perspicacious.Unlike me a sesquipedalian without a clue.
    God bless Scott.
