Remember sitting in the classroom as a kid, watching the Challenger go up into space?

That was awkward.

I was skipping school that day. Watched it form home, then called my mom to tell her. She was all like, "wow, that's terrible. Why are you not at school?"

A few years later, living in California, they were building a Christa McAulliffe Middle School near my house and a bunch of friends and I stole a pallet of plywood from there and built a mini half pipe in my backyard.

Broke my collar bone on that thing.

I blame NASA for that one.

They wheeled the TV in the class, we moved the desks, we all sat Indian style on the floor (pre pc world), had juice and cookies and watched the explosion. Was too young to remember if I was sad or not, it was like 3rd grade so probably was just confused.

I was watching The Price is Right and they preempted that shit for the Challenger.  I will never know if that $1 bid worked.  Serves NASA right.

I was only 2 when this happened so I was probably out roaming the streets chasing pussy, not wasting my time watching some stupid rocket.

I was proudly serving in the USAF and living in Gulfport, MS.  Was home from work that morning for some reason.  Probably goldbricking.  :lol
