Woah...Neil Armstrong didn't say what you think he said!

I've always known that what Armstrong said wasn't what he meant (or was supposed) to say. Both 'man' and 'mankind', in the context of his sentence, mean the same thing... which confounds the point of his message.

However, I've always thought that Armstong's 'flub' SOUNDS better. And every listener seems to understand the meaning of the sentence perfectly fine anyway.

Sometimes correct grammer just isn't as profound. I say that they should leave his message, flubbed and distorted and all, exactly as it is. SCREW THE INDEFINITE ARTICLE!
