Mr. Rogers was aU.S. Navy Seal, combat-proven in Vietnam with over twenty-five confirmed kills to his name. He wore a long-sleeved sweater on TV, to cover the many tattoos on his forearm and biceps. He was a master in small arms and hand-to-hand combat, able to disarm or kill in a heartbeat.
Man i would of trusted this guy with my children and knives in my kitchen LOL
Dude was pretty rad. At one point, the congressdude running the hearing (ETA: a hearing to decide whether or not to cut PBS’s funding, so Mister Rogers was an actor standing up to Richard fucking Nixon which is a big fucking deal) says something like, “I’m supposed to be a pretty tough guy but I’ve got goosebumps.” He’s just that steely-sweet the whole way through.
AHHH! My mom and I had this cable box remote control when I was a kid. Yes, this was a remote control. It’s a giant box with three rows of 12 switches attached by a wire to your cable box. I shorted out one of these by dropping it in a bucket of water.
Oh and as noted below, HBO was on channel 6. HBO will ALWAYS be on channel 6 in my brain.
