45 years ago today two badass motherfuckers set this rickety looking thing down on the surface of the moon. 
Behold the Lunar Module (well, this is only the ascent stage but I’ll spare you the full lecture). The only manned spacecraft to ever land on anything that isn’t earth. Built with a singular purpose in mind - to bring people safely to the most hostile environment people have ever been to. 
6 years from design pitch to first flight, and though the development process had it’s problems this rickety looking spacecraft never had a single operational failure. 
Also it saved Tom Hanks and Kevin Bacon that one time.

My roommate described this picture of me as “thug”. I’m not sure he understands the meaning of the word. 
In a tangentially related story my efforts to get an on-set headshot didn’t work out as well as planned. But this aint bad.

At least someone took a picture of me making the worst face ever flying the steadicam in 95 degree heat.

Accidental trying-to-fix-the-steadicam selfie.
If you’re wondering why I’m drenched in sweat, op a steadicam on an 85 degree day in direct sunlight. YOU’LL LEARN.

Well, this is it. We’ve finally done it. Our dauntless unflinching quest for brevity has reached a new plane of existence. 

First we distilled literature into cliff notes and movies. We distilled the movies into “Blank in 3 seconds” youtube versions. We shortened text to 160 characters with SMS. Then 140 with twitter. 

But this is a breakthrough. Zero characters, people. Zero. 

The entirety of human communication, societal knowledge and collective intelligence distilled into a single syllable. Yo. There’s nothing it can fully express and nothing it can’t partially express. There’s no right and wrong, no good and evil, only Yo. Ying and yang have become one and a new era of humanity is at hand. Hold on to your butts. 

TL;DR - Yo

(Seriously an actual app
