Buzz Aldrin Punches Guy in the Face (VIDEO)

YouTube – Buzz Aldrin punches guy in the face

via Will Femia, who observes, “Look, it’s one thing if you want to come up with your own conspiracy theories about the space program and whatever else, but if you’re going to get in a man’s face and call him a coward and a liar to his face, your fantasy world is going to come to an uncomfortable end.” True that. It’d still technically be assault, of course, but not unexpected.

Eric Berger approves as well.

It turns out, however, that this video dates to 2002. Ah, well. One of the virtues of YouTube is that old stuff like this is new again. Like Bo Jackson, Roddy Piper, and other things in Bill Simmons‘ YouTube Hall of Fame.

    Looks like Buzz still packs a pretty mean punch, guess the moron on the receiving end never heard the expression “astronaut tough”.
