Impossible.



I'm an optimist; but only because life isn't going to give me any other good choices.

u r old
Not only that, but must have some kind of a time warp device. That date must have been about 35 years before anyone ever heard of gmail.

I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

And I'd be remiss if I didn't mention what is probably my favorite XKCD of all time:

Posted on the forums before. IINM there was more than one alternative scenario.

ETA:

...Nixon's staffers had a speech prepared in case something went wrong with Apollo 11 stranding Armstrong and Aldrin on the moon? It was discovered in 1999 and is sometimes called "The greatest speech never given".

Transcript

    To: H. R. Haldeman
    From: Bill Safire

    July 18, 1969.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    IN EVENT OF MOON DISASTER:

    Fate has ordained that the men who went to the moon to explore in peace will stay on the moon to rest in peace.

    These brave men, Neil Armstrong and Edwin Aldrin, know that there is no hope for their recovery. But they also know that there is hope for mankind in their sacrifice.

    These two men are laying down their lives in mankind's most noble goal: the search for truth and understanding.

    They will be mourned by their families and friends; they will be mourned by the nation; they will be mourned by the people of the world; they will be mourned by a Mother Earth that dared send two of her sons into the unknown.

    In their exploration, they stirred the people of the world to feel as one; in their sacrifice, they bind more tightly the brotherhood of man.

    In ancient days, men looked at the stars and saw their heroes in the constellations. In modern times, we do much the same, but our heroes are epic men of flesh and blood.

    Others will follow, and surely find their way home. Man's search will not be denied. But these men were the first, and they will remain the foremost in our hearts.

    For every human being who looks up at the moon in the nights to come will know that there is some corner of another world that is forever mankind.

    PRIOR TO THE PRESIDENT'S STATEMENT:

    The President should telephone each of the widows-to-be.

    AFTER THE PRESIDENT'S STATEMENT, AT THE POINT WHEN NASA ENDS COMMUNICATIONS WITH THE MEN:

    A clergyman should adopt the same procedure as a burial at sea, commending their souls to "the deepest of the deep," concluding with the Lord's Prayer.
ETA:

Multiple scenarios was satire:
