Hello and welcome to Coexisting With Nonhuman Animals, episode 70, Ms Hen For President 2012 

I'm recording today on the 25th of December, for some reason all the shops here in Invercargill, New Zealand were shut, maybe online shopping has finally put them all out of business?  I couldn't buy any Richard Dawkins books, or other such works of godless socialists, so I thought to myself, aloud, "huh, might as well record a podcast Jordan!"

God willing, this will be the last episode of Coexisting With Nonhuman Animals, I don't think I'll have any more time to record random episodes, on the six last days of existence, before 2012 gets us.

I'll make a promise, its not like I'm going to have to back it up, ha, IF New Zealand is somehow just out of range of the Asteroids, and the Godzillas, and the Nuclear Meltdowns in the Non Nuclear Free countries, and the swarms of hornets, tsunamis of untreated "dairy nutrient", and general pestilence, I promise (yeah right) to continue the show, so long as the studio (a computer and secondhand USB headset microphone and myself are in fact intact.

Hello and welcome to another fine episode of Coexisting With Nonhuman Animals, the premier podcast of the Invercargill Vegan Society, southernmost Vegan organization in the world (possibly), coming to you from Invercargill, at the bottom of New Zealand.

1969 - the year man, or at least two American chaps landed on the moon.  

"Here men from the planet Earth first set foot upon the Moon

July 1969 AD

We came in peace for all mankind

Neil A Armstrong, Michael Collins, Edward E. Aldrin"

Neil, Michael Collins who kept the orbiter in a handbrake turn going round and round the big rock, and Buzz Aldrin.  What a beautiful message, of using German designed rockets, and a "whose got the biggest dick" measuring contest to see who would be first to race into space.  

The plaque used a little known font called Futura, also designed by the Germans, you may remember it from such Vegan Society logos as INVSOC's, the Invercargill Vegan Society.  Myself excluded, I wouldn't have it any other way, most of us were born outside glorious Invercargill, they first set foot upon the city to promote peace for all the animal kingdom.

I actually recited part of Neil Armstrongs famous speech on landing in Auckland, New Zealand for the National Animal Rights Conference this year, on the 20th of July (in New Zealand time), 2011.  Yes, I know, so those couple guys actually would have landed on the 21st going by New Zealand time, but whatever, the date is remembered as the 20th, so I picked the 20th to fly up to Auckland, New Zealands largest city, on the North Island.  As I recited over the Boeing 737 lunar landers jet engines

I took an average of a hundred photos/videos each day I was in Auckland.  What I said, unheard over that pesky atmosphere and Auckland Airport noise, I should have asked the pilot to land the large plane on a barren, dusty surface, I'm sure they'd be cool with that, "20th of July 2011, one small step for a man, one giant leap for Invercargill kind".  Or something like that, my memory is as fuzzy as the recording is loud.  Evidently, recording on your iPhone 4 is not quite as clear as late 1960's reel to reel tape technology!
