Definitely one of those I remember where I was when I heard the news moments.
One of those things that you always remember where you were when you heard the news.
I was done with class and I rolled a fatty and planted myself in front of the couch with a huge fucking sandwich and a 2ltr coke when I saw it. The high really intensified the moment. A freakingly intense thing to watch. I ate the sandwich in 3 bites though. I was bat shit stoned.
I was teaching special ed kids that day...I turned to Sesame Street after that capsule exploded...It was C is for Cookie the rest of the day....
Interesting look back at news delivery. For the most part it's people in front of cameras, and less of them.
No split screens, no graphics, no crawling stream of other news, etc.
1986,i was working at the state prison in N.J.
I was in 3rd grade I still remember all of my friends telling that stupid NASA joke...
i remember seeing that
This is a favorite in business school as an example of group think
I was in an automatic transmission rebuilding class. The teacher was a big science freak and had a TV set up in the shop so we could watch. He was a very sad man for days after.
"Major malfunction" became the standard term for a giant fuck up after that day.
Makes you remember how professional newscaster were -- even in 1986. Can't imagine Dan Rather, Walter Cronkite et al mixing it up with Kathy Griffin on a New Year's Eve special.
The only ones who can handle space travel are
@LawyerLarry he has been all over the universe with out any equipment cause he is more than mortal.
@ClintDagger has bedded 100's of space women they were all 10's.
@ShutUpSitDown can build a fully functioning space craft in under 24hrs.
@EDDIEVRULZ has drank the mos eisley cantina out of space beer on many occasions.
Larry inc. the true space cowboys.
My senior year of high school and we had off because of a snow day. I watched that live on TV with my mother. When it exploded, we both said "Holy shit" at the same time. I remember it like it was yesterday.
I was on the phone talking with a friend. I heard a "click-click" sound. I said "What's that?" He said "I got that new 'call waiting' service last week, hold on I'll get right back to you." About 30 seconds later he came back and said "Jesus Christ, that was Pete. He said he the space shuttle just exploded." That's how I learned about it.
Can't imagine being a family member and seeing this.
I remember walking into science class after recess and the teacher was crying. She told us what happened.
I was in 7th grade and I was in a study hall. The teacher took an in school phone call and then she turned on the TV. I still remember the class room and the teacher. Like said in a lot of the other posts, you don't forget where you were.
