Official Apollo 13 Transcripts Released
January 5, 2011

Forty years after NASA's Apollo 13 moon mission, the official transcripts have been released. Not only did the astronaut actually say, "Houston, we HAD a problem," but the rest of their conversations are a little, well... dumb.

Seriously, listen to some of these 'brilliant' gems:

"It took Fred 1 hour to shave."

"Fred's not in the food locker is he?"

"It's kind of difficult here... Getting into a hammock in zero g. I'm not sure if I keep floating away from it or if it keeps moving away from me."

"Maybe we could borrow some... We're having lunch right now, and I just made myself a hot dog sandwich with catsup."

Seriously, might as well have been Homer Simpson up there...
