Playmate Photo From Apollo 12 Up For Auction

CmdrTaco posted more than 3 years ago | from the here-comes-the-hatemail dept.

Moon 211

Kilrah_il writes "When the Apollo 12 crew left Earth for a trip to the Moon, they did not know that the ground crew hid a surprise in one of the command module lockers: a calendar photo of Playboy Playmate DeDe Lind. Now this card is offered for auction, after being kept in the personal collection of command module pilot Richard Gordon, who added the following memo: 'This is to certify that the accompanying 4.5" x 6.25" cue card did, indeed, accompany me on my trip to the moon in the Command Module Yankee Clipper aboard the historic Apollo 12 lunar landing mission. This cue card, which flew with me to the moon, has been in my sole possession and part of my personal space collection since my return from the moon in 1969 aboard America's second lunar landing mission, and it remains one of the all-time greatest Apollo era astronaut "Gotcha's!"' For those interested, the minimum bid is $1000." Warning, contains pixelated nudity.

It could just be a trend in playboy. I've heard they shifted away from girls who looked "next door" to more glamorous. Or was it the other way around? I can't remember, don't care enough to google it at work. And no playboy models, past or present, looked like girls who ever lived next door to me.

Re:Wowee (5, Informative)

blair1q (305137) | more than 3 years ago | (#34838582)

Playboy's golden age was in the 70s. Those women were usually stunning with or without the paint and airbrushing.

In the 90s something happened and the publishers started using less attractive women with a lot of cosmetic surgery and makeup applied, and manipulating them more.

Now, who reads Playboy any more? There's boobs in half the pages on the web, xkcd does the funny, rotten tomatoes handles the movies, and if you want to hear from Hef you can tweet him.

Re:Wowee (0, Insightful)

Anonymous Coward | more than 3 years ago | (#34838580)

Yeah, it's a strange thing. I always figure that all men everywhere love reasonably large, round butts. But then every once in a while I run into a man that really does prefer flat, pancake looking butts. He will even call a woman who is in great shape with a small waist who has a big butt and hips "fat." I just don't get it.

Re:Wowee (1)

fishbowl (7759) | more than 3 years ago | (#34839088)

Thinness is associated with *youth* and youth is a universal status symbol in a natural selection (breeding) context. The same criteria also explain the appeal of firmness (the "big" of big butts is about firmness and youth, not about size) and also somewhat explains the trend toward lack of hair.

Re:Wowee (1)

fishbowl (7759) | more than 3 years ago | (#34839116)

Well, there's "big" as in "firm/youthful" and then there's "big" as in size 24. I don't think the latter is rooted in the same universal appeal as the former.

Re:Wowee (3, Interesting)

spun (1352) | more than 3 years ago | (#34839326)

Actually, anthropological studies show that men all over the world prefer a woman with a certain hip to waist ratio. The actual size of the woman is much less important than the fact that she has big hips relative to her waist. Culturally speaking, we may despise "fat" women and find them less desirable based on what others might think of them, but as long as she has a good hip to waist ratio, our cocks couldn't care less how fat she is.

blair1q (305137) | more than 3 years ago | (#34838506)

Well, there's more of them to choose from.

And women's standards for acceptable conduct have changed, so more of them consider standing in front of a camera for money an acceptable practice.

And technology for manipulating their looks, in makeup and exercise physiology and software, has improved.

And photographers have learned from decades of research by the pioneers of Playboy how to make someone look better than they generally do.

And women have learned from the same sources what men really like them to look like.

It's unlikely that the median or average have changed much. But the selection, presentation, and manipulation are much more refined.

As an example of presentation and manipulation, but not so much selection, I give you Katy Perry. With [aceshowbiz.com] and without [hotmommagossip.com] her cloaking device turned on.

I guess it depends on when your tastes were canalized.

Re:Wowee (1)

RazorSharp (1418697) | more than 3 years ago | (#34838896)

Stop judging women based on movies and TV. Check out the midwest -- the average woman is 5'1" and overweight.

Have the women in Playboy and on TV gotten prettier and prettier? Yes, but it's no different than the trend of professional wrestlers becoming more and more muscular. Population has increased, new medical procedures/work-out practices are taken advantage of, and the cream of the crop is oh so much creamier. But that doesn't mean that normal looking people ceased to exist, nor does it mean that, in general, there are more cute girls today than thirty or forty years ago. In fact, I would argue the reverse is true: take a look at obesity statistics. As a percentage, there are less attractive people today than there were several decades ago, it's just that media pretends they don't exist.

Re:Wowee (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 3 years ago | (#34839322)

Well, "prettiness" tends to be specific to whatever fad period it is in. However, women in general did not look all that different at the base level, it's just the popularity of various looks that put them on magazine covers or whatever. Those fad looks are not real though, it's just stupid people.

I can find extremely attractive women of pretty much any time period and they are as attractive as any other time. In fact they look very similar due to my own preferences, these type of women have existed at all times even if they weren't popular enough to be on magazine covers.

That must suck to be such a walking contradiction. Go ahead and reconcile these two things: "I believe in a Creator God who is perfect in every way and therefore made us as he intended us to be" and "The human form is indecent, shameful, and must be covered up at all times or I will get very offended and butthurt and raise a lot of drama." That's Puritanism for you.

Because I can't be troubled to: turn off the TV, radio, computer; change channels or web page; not buy the book; etc..

Warning, contains pixelated nudity

I appreciate the warning, so I won't waste time clicking on it - what with it being pixelated.

When I walk through the frozen food aisle eggo waffles occasionally catch my attention from the corner of my eye and I wonder why anyone would need to pixellate food items, until I realize it is just the waffle pattern.

example [google.com]

For the record I also wonder why the Japanese pixelate their porn.

Not helped by the fact that lots of us are home from work because of the snow, and need porn today!

She's 64 now. Probably doesn't look the same.

MY DEAR FRIEND:-

I know of no Medicine fit to diminish the violent natural inclination you mention; and if I did, I think I should not communicate it to you. Marriage is the proper Remedy. It is the most natural State of Man, and therefore the State in which you will find solid Happiness. Your Reason against entering into it at present appears to be not well founded. The Circumstantial Advantages you have in View by Postponing it, are not only uncertain, but they are small in comparison with the Thing itself, the being married and settled. It is the Man and Woman united that makes the complete Being. Separate she wants his force of Body and Strength of Reason; he her Softness, Sensibility and acute Discernment. Together they are most likely to succeed in the World. A single Man has not nearly the Value he would have in that State of Union. He is an incomplete Animal. He resembles the odd Half of a Pair of Scissors.

If you get a prudent, healthy wife, your Industry in your Profession, with her good Economy, will be a Fortune sufficient.

But if you will not take this Counsel, and persist in thinking that Commerce with the Sex is inevitable, then I repeat my former Advice that in your Amours you should prefer old Women to young ones. This you call a Paradox, and demand my reasons. They are these:

1. Because they have more Knowledge of the world, and their Minds are better stored with Observations; their conversation is more improving, and more lastingly agreeable.

2. Because when Women cease to be handsome, they study to be good. To maintain their Influence over Man, they supply the Diminution of Beauty by an Augmentation of Utility. They learn to do a thousand Services, small and great, and are the most tender and useful of Friends when you are sick. Thus they continue amiable. And hence there is hardly such a thing to be found as an Old Woman who is not a good Woman.

3. Because there is no hazard of children, which irregularly produced may be attended with much inconvenience.

4. Because through more Experience they are more prudent and discreet in conducting an Intrigue to prevent Suspicion. The Commerce with them is therefore safer with regard to your reputation; and regard to theirs, if the Affair should happen to be known, considerate People might be inclined to excuse an old Woman, who would kindly take care of a young Man, form his manners by her good Councils, and prevent his ruining his Health and Fortune among mercenary Prostitutes.

5. Because in every Animal that walks upright, the Deficiency of the Fluids that fill the Muscles appears first in the highest Part. The Face first grows lank and Wrinkled; then the Neck; then the Breast and Arms; the lower parts continuing to the last as plump as ever; so that covering all above with a Basket, and regarding only what is below the Girdle, it is impossible of two Women to know an old one from a young one. And as in the Dark all Cats are grey, the Pleasure of Corporal Enjoyment with an old Woman is at least equal and frequently superior; every Knack being by Practice capable by improvement.

6. Because the sin is less. The Debauching of a Virgin may be her Ruin, and make her Life unhappy.

7. Because the Compunction is less. The having made a young Girl miserable may give you frequent bitter Reflections; none of which can attend making an old Woman happy.

8. 8th & lastly. They are so grateful!!!

Thus much for my Paradox. But still I advise you to marry immediately; being sincerely

Your Affectionate Friend,

Benj. Franklin

It was a tradition on a few of US ballistic missle submarines (boomers) that I was on, to have "tube woman". When there was 16 days left in the patrol, a different laminated Playmate centerfold picture was hung from the corresponding missile tube (old boomers had 16 missile tubes). As the days counted down, a different Playmate was placed on the corresponding number missile tube hatch. The joy of seeing the different pictures as they made their way down the tubes reminded you that the days left on the patrol were winding down and you would soon be home. The first tube day was also the official start of BOCOD (Beat off cut off date), participation on that was voluntary.

I doubt the tube woman tradition still goes on, to many people in this day and age get offended at the simplest things.

And replace any apollo era astronauts or ride along with any of them it would be the crew of Apollo 12. They had fun, a LOT of fun on that mission and swore and cussed a lot too.

Like a pirate ship, yar...
