Day 14 – Insert Title

29 Sep

I’m at the pub writing my next post. There’s this German girl next to me and she tells me that she met a Canadian guy last year in Berlin and he told her that there would be a Canadian mission to the moon in ten years.

Apparently our government is training astronauts on Devon Island (full disclosure: I have not idea where this is). Now the guy himself is not an astronaut as he will be too old when the mission starts. He says he’s a medical doctor and an officer of the Canadian Army who is helping to train the real astronauts.

I really don’t know what to say. I ask her if he scored, she laughs and says, “no”. That’s good because this must be the worst inflate-your-own-self-worth story I’ve ever heard. I can seen this guy now:

  • I’m in the military
  • I’m an officer
  • I’m a medical doctor
  • I was in Afghanistan
  • I’m helping to train astronauts in the Canadian Arctic for a super-secret mission to the moon

I wonder at which point in his story he lost her.

    Actually its Mars not Moon… I read about Devon Island long time ago, it the largest from humans uninhibited island on earth…. they are simulating life on Mars up there and made a new world record with 100 days in astronauts suit or something like that. Try ‘Flashline Mars Arctic Research Station’

      I still find it pretty funny that the dude does not know the difference between Mars and the Moon. 🙂
