Six Reasons Neil Armstrong was a Badass

+It saddened me when I heard that Neil Armstrong had died. I didn't know the man and I'd never met him, but clearly he left a large enough impact on our world that I knew his name, knew of some of the things he'd accomplished and felt genuinely sad to hear about his death. The fact that he was born and still resided here in the buckeye state made me feel even more fond of the man.

I follow a youtube channel called Vlogbrothers; it's totally nerdy, totally random and totally awesome. Seriously. I loved the video they put out soon after Armstrong's death, 'Six Reasons Neil Armstrong was a Badass' - because the man really was a badass. He deserves some credit because truth is, he did a whole lot more than just land on the moon. Not to mention, the man was humble - and considering all things, that would be tough to be in his situation. I totally admire him for that.

So I have the video here for your enjoyment. Because it's a flippin' awesome video and I think you should all watch it and reflect on this amazing man's life. RIP Neil, I feel like Ohio (and the USA) lost one of their best.
