He’s already had 3 fried chickens and a Coke.
Buzz Alrdin had toast… dry

What did they order?

Me reading the first ten words: "Ugh can we not do that reddit thing where we just lazily quote shit from a movie"
Me hitting that eleventh word: "this is GOLD!"
Michael Collins was happy to be allowed inside.
"We're on a mission from NASA. We're putting the band back together."
"Yerra, they’ll never shoot me in my own country"
Buzz! Shit! The moon brothers!
Well if you weren't going to be allowed to eat anything that has crumbs for a few days and you might be dead soon, what would you do?
DONT YOU BLASPHEME IN HERE!
The Blues Brothers?!?! Sshhhhheeeiiiiiittt, they still owe you money fool.
Ma’am, would it please you to know that we are in a holy mission?
He’s had three, he’s on the fourth now.
I gotcha. My mistake.
Neil: "I'm going to have to eat every fucking chicken in this room."
I’d like to see the chicken that laid that egg…that yoke is huge man!
I think that is a orange wedge...
Don’t crush my dreams man
"Gimme the fried chicken and an ostrich egg, Fran."
Lol that's a peach.
And yet I thought it was an egg also. Ahahhaha
Technically, you're only half right.
Somehow that's worse.
Why's that? Have you never had canned peaches?
I only eat peaches from a can. They were put there by a man.
Where's his factory though?
It's an industrial unit near the middle of the city.
How dare you
I really had to look at it though
I'm not your Fran, pal.
I’m not your pal, buddy.
I’m not your buddy, chief.
He’s not your chief, guy.
That's not a guy, princess.
She's not your princess, darlin'.
He's not your darlin, boss
He's not your boss, dude!
He’s not your dude, compadre
So the usual then?
Given that the real space flight experience is floating in a poop capsule, I would ball out so hard on my last breakfast and make my fellow crew members deal with the repercussions
Don’t they just shoot the poop into space?
"Sir, we determined what caused the destruction of the space station. It was a shit meteorite from the old space shuttle."
"that's a space peanut"
Nope, they put it in bags around the capsule to use it as radiation shielding, after squeezing the water out to drink later.

That’s some sun-sized egg…
It's a canned peach I think 🤔 hard to tell tho
One of my buddy's mom had a joke dessert where she'd put half a canned peach on top of a bed of whipped cream, then call it a "dinosaur egg, sunny side up".
It was a decent joke, not like belly laugh funny, but it usually got a chuckle.
Is momjokes a sub?
That seems more like "yo mama jokes" than "jokes a Mom would tell"
I know, I want a sub where it's Kitty Forman humor
Nervous Kitty laughter.
Mom jokes would just be one joke though: calling every console a nintendo
that sounds fuking sweet haha :))
Ding ding ding. Spot on.
One small bite for man, one giant egg for mankind.
Nailed it 🤣
It's a peach
Ostrich eggs for breakfast is a NASA tradition
And he shat it out into a bag in the capsule on the way to the moon.
At that point, how expensive per lbs was it to send stuff to space. His meal/shit must have been a few thousand dollars.
We are still paying the interest on that shit....
Inflation adjusted I think the _entire_ Apollo project was roughly 1/8 the price of an 'Afghan Occupation''
now imagine if there were afghans on the moon. we’d all be broke
That’s what I was thinking. I would imagine that you’d want as little solid food in your stomach as possible.
Steak and eggs is traditional. Plus neither makes much poo.
That’s fried chicken and peaches.
Like he said, Neil wasn't traditional.
Going to moon was, at the time, quite untraditional
I might even say it still is
That said, there wasn't much tradition for going to the moon at this point.
Apparently, one of the Apollo 11 astronauts ate anti-diarreah pills during the whole mission, to avoid pooping in said bags. Not sure who.
Short missions like Apollo they could have given them enemas and not eaten solid food for the duration. Sounds preferable to shitting in a bag in small room with 2 other people.
After talking to shuttle astronauts- I can say people _really_ underestimate how gross current space travel is. The shuttle and its occupants were insanely disgusting after 2 week missions. The ISS has no better facilities or hygiene, and its been continuously occupied for 25 years.
Never really thought that through before now, so...thanks...or fuck you...not really sure which yet.
Yeah, I understand the space station smells horrible. Luckily your sense of smell (and taste) diminishes when in zero gravity.
To find out more search YouTube for "is there poop on the moon"
Apparently steak* and eggs is a common last earth side meal because it tends to be absorbed fairly completely with little residue, as taking a shit in space is by no means a simple or pleasant process that astronauts tend to try to minimize.

Wow I did not know that about steak and eggs. I am going to conduct some experiments lol
Keto diet is notorious for reducing your volume of poo
Packing for Mars is great. All of her books are a delight.
After the first shit I’m guessing the whole capsule smells like a fucking sewer the whole rest of the trip
Apparently smells are pretty different in space, namely because no gravity means increased blood flow to your head, which means your sinuses are inflamed, and it feels like you're congested.
Also, a lot of the reasons why [airplane food tastes bad](https://www.businessinsider.com/airplane-food-tastes-different-explained-2020-1) also apply to space travel.
Thats a good thing.
I've listened to more than one astronaut talk about 'smells' in the shuttle. On return when they crack the door and the smells of the CA desert wafting in are apparently amazing. Being the guy opening the door and having the shuttle smell waft out is enough to make you vomit.
I can't imagine what its like to fly to the ISS. You're not in a capsule long enough to fully fry your sense of smell, and then you crack the seal on 25 years of BO and shit stew.
You'll get use to it pretty quick.
I have eaten many steaks and many eggs, and cannot confirm that they result in “little residue.”
He's even wearing his Omega Speedmaster.
Came here for this! Also. What strap is on the watch? Velcro strap? NATO?
Looks like it might be one of the forster komfit metal straps
It is. But more accurately, it's Jacoby-Bender, which bought the then defunct Forstner.
Interestingly, JB Champion is no longer around now, but a reissue can be purchased from Forstner. [Here's more info if you're curious](https://www.reddit.com/r/OmegaWatches/comments/nzxgef/my_3861_sapphire_sandwich_with_forstner_komfit/?utm_medium=android_app&utm_source=share)
they're called JB Champion bracelets and they installed them on to their speedmasters because they were easier to break off vs the OEM bracelet in the event they got stuck somehow.
Fun fact: Armstrong's watch never walked on the moon. They were worried they'd have no reliable timer if both their watches broke on the walk, so his stayed safely in the lander.
When they got back to Earth, Aldrin and Armstrong mailed their watches to the Smithsonian, a donation to the Apollo 11 exhibit.
[Armstrong's is still in the collection](https://airandspace.si.edu/collection-objects/chronograph-armstrong-apollo-11/nasm_A19731247000), Aldrin's never arrived. Outside of a few people at NASA, no one has actually seen the first watch on the moon.
How much did one of those cost in '69?
I am guessing they were about $235 based on this [1972 ad I found.](https://i.imgur.com/Eb4V0gp.jpeg)
$235 in 1972, is equivalent of $1489 in 2021.
The most basic Omega Speedmaster Professional is now $5350
$6300 actually since they updated it last year.
When you got your Corvette for $1, you could afford a nice watch.
All the astronauts got $1 leases on Corvettes and then local the dealership got to sell them as having been driven by an astronaut.
Came here to say this. Good eye
Terrible eye. It’s not a Speedmaster. It might be an Omega, but it’s not a chronograph. It looks like a Railmaster.
EDIT: I’m dumb. 100% wrong. Just an idiot on the internet being his dumb self.
Your eye is worse. [It's a Speedy, you can see the subdials when you zoom in.](https://i.imgur.com/Fr8yB1Q.jpeg) You can even see a blurry bump where the top pusher would be.
This is not a Speedmaster. There are no subdials or pushers to operate the chronograph.
[You can definitely see subdials and while blurry, you can make out the pushers too.](https://i.imgur.com/Fr8yB1Q.jpeg)
Looks like he’s ready to knock on some doors while on the moon and invite them to come unto Christ
The Orokin are up there. They fancy themselves as gods.
This title is misleading…He ate the morning of the flight in crew quarters prior to launch.
Yeah, the traditional steak and eggs breakfast before suiting up.
i wanna be an astronaut
Wonder if they ever had to cancel a flight due to diarrhea.
Steak and eggs shouldn’t be giving a healthy person diarrhea.
Right, unless they were handled/cooked improperly. I'm sure NASA did a good job or monitoring all that stuff tho.

Also with the Apollo 11 crew are Deke Slayton (holding the map) - an Astronaut and Director of Flight Crew Operations. Far to the left is Astronaut Bill Anders (backup Command Module Pilot).
And many more breakfasts after coming back.
Why did I have to scroll this far to find someone reading the title the way I did... Reddit is usually much more primed for puns and dad jokes than this. Do better, Reddit. lol
I wonder if his watch is reading 7:32 pm instead of AM and this is his dinner the night before.
I was right, this is him eating a late dinner.
Looks like he's getting ready for just another day at the office
He is. This is home, not Nasa. Wrong breakfast, too (not steak and eggs). Title is wrong.
Half peach y’all
Thank you, i was going egg. Looks canned too, light syrup
Omg, I thought I was having a stroke thinking that was the biggest goddamn sunny-side-up egg I'd ever seen... like the plate is just a sunny-side-up egg and there's some fried chicken on it
Sunny side up ostrich egg: https://external-preview.redd.it/C6mBeMhWd8ODjlUHJSqP_tWdejRHZ0zwlPgn0jJjfr4.jpg?auto=webp&s=59d1f56f887641c8d01c169616092152860a69e7
I'd like to taste it. You only need one of those for a nice omelet.
I thought it was an egg too! My mom goes on and on about how some things used to be much bigger back in her day (eggs and avocados come to mind) and I was thinking 'wow, she wasn't kidding!'
Eggs were smaller back in the days, I have a backing book from the 70s they ask for 5 to 7 eggs per recipe. With L or XL eggs you need 3 or 2 for the same effect.
Is it chicken or croissant? As soon as I make my mind up I see the other thing
This was the 60’s…definitely heavy syrup.
Idk why I thought that was maybe a giant chicken egg yolk
Lol, I thought it was honey mustard for his chicken tendies
I thought he was dipping his tendies in an egg yolk, breakfast of champions.
Eating eggs and chicken together feels like a special level of savagery to me.
There is a dish in Japanese where it's called "father and son rice". Look it up.
Its actually called mother and child bowl. 親子丼。Egg and chicken with rice. :D
I've never had it, I only remember because...reasons
How about those pokebowls with salmon and salmon roe?
Wow I sound like a murderer.
No, that just sounds delicious.
I was wondering if he had ostrich eggs
That's one giant bite for mankind
Is that fried chicken for breakfast? Lol
Level 1: That's not an egg
Level 2: Holy shit it's half a canned peach
Level 3: Canned peaches are actually a can of corn syrup with a boiled peach dropped in it to meet the FDA guidelines for "fruit"
Dude where are you getting your canned fruit?
All the canned fruit I see is in "100% juice" or this horrible Del Monte fake sugar added version.
Before the 100% juice, it was light syrup. So back when this was taken, it was a peach in a tin can surrounded by corn syrup.
Peaches are one of (maybe the only?) thing we still can with a tin lining instead of using a plastic lining.
Probably in extra heavy syrup. Big sugar was still king back in the 60's.
The Del Monte fake sugar ones are the worst.
Canned peaches aren’t generally boiled. That would get them too soft. The cans themselves are heated to ensure the killing off of microorganisms within. That heating isn’t quite to the boiling point (close enough to basically cook the peach)
Did you know peaches come from a can? They were put there by a man. In a factory. Downtown.
I knew i felt connected to this man.
This really reminds me of For All Mankind.
"This actual historical event reminds me of a fictional story based off said event"
I see this enough that it deserves its own subreddit.
The astronaut in that show ate fried eggs and plushki for breakfast, topped off with several shots of vodka.
There is a museum dedicated to him in Wapakoneta, Ohio. Everyone from this area took school trips there.
He’s probably looking at his bills and thinking, maybe he won’t have to pay if he’s not on earth anymore.
That seems like an odd morning. At the breakfast table with eggs and toast with a glass of juice. Just sitting there thinking, "oh yeah I'm supposed to goto the moon today"
He never ate a breakfast ever again.......
Cool, calm and collected on the outside while he's trying to figure out how I'm going to get home!
You must be really lost if you got astronauts trying to help you get home.
High protein low carb/fiber makes for less poop, which i think is what you would want in space.
Reviewing the original “cheat codes” before launch.
I'd be too afraid to eat anything besides some crackers in case I get the shits halfway through launch phase.
Then again I have IBS and just looking at that meal gives me the shits
Last breakfast on earth? It’s a shame he never came back from the moon and remains there still
Is it just me that thought that this was Viggo Mortensen? For a split second there I read the title and thought huh they're making a Neil Armstrong biopic with Viggo
Looks like no-mustache Hitler.
Not gonna lie I though this for a second too lol
Didn't he make it back?
That is what I though, a bit of a misleading title.
They can send people to the moon in the 60\ but now can’t even send a monkey to the moon. Can’t think of any other technology that’s went back the way since the 60s? No other country On the planet to this day has ever landed a man on the moon. Just one time in the 60s? Hmm
That's really American, frie chicken for breakfast
Are you sure the heading isn’t supposed to be “Neil Armstrong eating his last breakfast before heading to the studio on Earth to fake the moon landing in 1969” because that’s what he did. - conspiracy theorists
Did you mean before entering the “Hollywood Studio”?
Confirmed. The chicken came first.
Pretty sure that’s Aragorn eating the hobbits’ second breakfast
Before "acting" like he was going to the moon.
I hope this is sarcasm
That egg yolk looks huge
It’s half a peach, I thought it was an egg yolk at first too
I saw it’s a peach after my comment
I didn't know peaches had yolks. Huh
fried chicken for breakfast eh? Hard to see how America became notorious for obesity for the next 40 years.
I just want to see more of that wallpaper.
Is that fried chicken and jello?
