Why We Fight, Urban Legend Division


Because how can two cultures so divided when it comes to urban legends peacefully coexist? Or maybe I'm the only infidel who didn't know that, hope to die, Neil Armstrong heard the Muslim call to prayer on the moon and converted on his return to Earth? I could tell you all about Mr. Gorsky, however.

I first heard the Gorsky story from far-out space nut pop star of Jefferson Airplane/Starship fame Paul Kantner.

And what about that flag on the Moon anyway
