I was not actually aware that this astronaut was Bruce McCandless II. When I selected my avatar, I did a search for public domain images and did not pay much further attention after selecting one. It obviously corresponds to the one in the linked Wikipedia entry but mine has the Earth horizon halfway up the astronaut instead of his toes dangling over it. I kind of like that because it still shows the Earth even after clipping the image to a small size. At the time I was concerned that my avatar resembled a logon picture available for Windows users, but I am not sure where the Earth stood in the picture that they used.

Using artistic license and fictitious quantum legerdemain before the ban takes effect, I gratefully acknowledge Bruce McCandless' contribution to humanity's presence in space and congratulate him on a successful test of the Manned Maneuvering Unit (MMU) that allowed this eerie positioning of an untethered astronaut with the Earth in the background.

I further add that my legerdemain was so successful, I was able to apply it to prevent budgie banning even though I am on a yen symbol time-out. That is assuming that I was able to budge the budgie banner.

No such luck. I'm still here.

I unban the above user because I'm fed up with reading all the verbiage justifying what he/she is doing, and this is the easiest option.

Thus I have struck a blow for teenagers everywhere.
I ban this above user because I consider a prime number of posts so beautiful that it must be preserved.

I ban the above user for not using a comma in their post, or a semi-colon, or a colon, or a dash, or a smilie.

I ban the above user for abusing his power. And forgetting to claim it was all in the name of national security.

I regretfully ban the above user for failing to quote Lord Acton.

I do not ban the above user because an epistemological analysis of the user's activity gains no knowledge when the user is not present.
