Either way, he's not going to hurt himself much falling off in moon gravity. Unless of course he tears the space suit.

Though given the torch is burning, clearly the pic was actually taken on the sound stage where they faked the moon landings, so that may not apply

I've really enjoyed this thread so far lol!

I've got my eye on a couple more interesting t-shirts, but if anyone can recommend any unicycle related tshirts I'd really appreciate it
