We Choose To Go To The Moon...

You Are Most Like John F. Kennedy
You live a fairy tale life that most people envy. And while you may have a few dark secrets, few people know them.
                                                              What Modern US President Are You Most Like? 

I'm not quite sure how it came up with "fairy tale life" or "a few dark secrets" based on the questions asked and the answers given.  But I did admire JFK and I am glad it was him rather than some other Presidents I thought more likely (based on the brief Q&A exchange).  

This makes me recall a couple of my favorite JFK quotes - they were used (in part) in the opening sequence of HBO's "From the Earth to the Moon":

"We choose to go to the moon.  We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too."

"I believe that this nation should commit itself to achieving a goal, before this decade is out, of landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to earth."

Go to the Moon.  It stills ranks #1 on my all-time most remarkable feat in the entire history of humankind.

"Fairy tale life" until the top of his head got blown off.
