You should have probably just waited until your phone was charged before you started posting. I think that makes sense, right? Lol.

True. I had a break at work and should have waited until evening.

When I said all of this is documented somewhere, I misspoke. He used much less detail. I read his version of it somewhere decades ago and have been unable to find it again. At the time, I didn't know I was the goofball in the story, even though friends tried to convince me I was.

Also, I apologize for my scattered thoughts and writing. I'm trying to share the high points but the memories blend and overlap.

Wait wait, Tony! The part when Neil goes over to his house for a barbecue party but his phone battery being at only 2% is next!

Should we create a poll?

I think we all can agree with this.

Does this end with Neil inviting you onto his tour bus and shares a box of Little Debbie snack cakes with you? That's what happened to me....really it's true.

Dear Sir, it's the way you've presented your scenario on initial introduction that would create ad hominem, ridicule, and being poked fun at.

I'm sure you were probably aware of this before you took the risk of posting.

It's a turn off when you post about having to 'charge the phone', creating this unnecessary suspense per reply like a scene in a Hollywood movie.

We live in an age of 'pics or it didn't happen' mentality.

Since you mentioned not finding the article on Cygnus X-1, try the Power Windows Transcripts here.

However just in case, I'm going to post the News, Weather, and Sports article page here for you to have a second look.

Perhaps this was documented in Neil's books, which can be previewed here.

On a side note, I hope you do find the article.  However my opinion is that maybe it should be left alone and not found perhaps.

At the same time, I'm sure the majority of members find this entertaining, but to me it's annoying seeing something like this,

You're the one who refered to yourself as "mentally challenged"

if anyone actually believes this bullshit then I have a nice bridge to sell them, going cheap :-)

"Then I hopped on the back of that bike, my arms around Neil's waist, Neil looking back at me with that 'I love you' look, and we rode off into the sunset, like all the western heroes do".
