A giant, period.

One small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.

I remember, seven years old, the whole family watching on a black and white TV. Arthur C. Clark did the commentary.

Everything was possible on that day. Everything.

Armstrong said in a 2010 interview that his answer to the conspiracy theorists - who maintain the moon landing never happened - was that "one day men will return to the moon and find the camera I left there."

Maybe someone can provide more details than I can, but he apparently left a Hasselblad at the landing site. I guess he brought back the film magazine. Apparently other moon astronauts left other Hasselblads for a total of eleven.

Good cyclists are:
Visible, Predictable, Alert, Assertive and Courteous

They also use the five layers of protection available.
Layer 1: Control your bike (Don't fall or collide with others)
Layer 2: Follow the rules (Don't be the cause of traffic crashes)
Layer 3: Use Lane position (Discourage other drivers mistakes)
Layer 4: Hazard Avoidance (Avoid other drivers mistakes and road hazards)
Layer 5: Utilize passive protection (Use protection when all else fails)
