Will John Lithgow be there when Shatner returns to earth drunk and mumbling about something on the wing of the plane?

How does that ------------ look so good at 90?

What's his secret, my dad's 91 but he doesn't look that good. Hell, I don't look that good.

Well, flying in a giant penis is still not a good look.

Kirk said some very nice words about his journey... sounded like he had a religious experience.
Happy I got to see him land and explain it all.

Shatner wouldn't be the first person to have a religious experience in space.

Then again he already responded beautifully to the question of God's existence.

At 90, he's a bit closer to the Pearly Gates, or
whatever awaits us, than most. I imagine he's gotten
quite reflective as he knows the clock is winding down.

Btw. If you get a chance, there is an excellent documentary,
on Shatner and his life on Star Trek and out of it, on Netflix.
I forget the name of it, but it is definitely 'must see tv',
unless of course, you irrationally hate the man, like poster No. 5.

There is no cure for irrationalism or hate
except self-cure.

The richest man in the world chooses to send his phallic rocket ship up and down, rather than, oh, say, re-build Haiti, or build systems for clean water in the third world, or pay off a couple billion of student debt for deserving folks, or feed everyone in sub-Saharan Africa, or cure Ebola, or vaccinate everyone in Peru, or so many other things. But none of those would feed Cowboy Jeff's phallic rocket ship-sized ego...

He could dump every last cent he had in Africa and Haiti and their corrupt officials would steal it all. Ask any African why they are so poor always corruption.

The corruption that was created and exploited by the Colonial powers. They're still exploiting it today but today it's with corporations instead of armies The corruption is "burned in".

Plastic surgery, few vices, and when I met him he was more or less handled like a circus bear by his at-the-time-wife and daughter.

If I could hang onto Bezos for that long while explaining what it was like, peaking at the sight of God and death...
Far out, man.

The in-capsule video shows Shatner close to the window taking in the view while others somersault during their 3 minutes of weightlessness. His comments after they landed were profound.
