I spy, with my little eye,
Ayn Rand came off a lot more feminine after she lost the tie...
Also, you already knew this, but we didn't:
"Conrad, like his fellow candidates, underwent several days of what they considered to be invasive, demeaning, and unnecessary medical and psychological testing at the Lovelace Respiratory Research Institute
in New Mexico
. Unlike his fellow candidates, Conrad rebelled against the regimen. During a Rorschach inkblot test
, he told the psychiatrist that one blot card revealed a sexual encounter complete with lurid detail. When shown a blank card, he turned it around, pushed it back and replied "It's upside down"
. Then when he was asked to deliver a stool sample to the onsite lab, he placed it in a gift box and tied a red ribbon around it.
Eventually, he decided that he had had enough. After dropping his full enema bag on the desk of the clinic’s commanding officer
, he walked out.
His initial application to NASA was denied with the notation not suitable for long-duration flight.
In other words, a posthumous TD Hall of Famer, among other things.
Great link to the Winton article, btw.
