    Do you ever get a weird feeling listening to a documentary and going "waiiiiiiiit. This one sounds incredibly familiar for some reason."

    In early 2000s, I was just a computer geek who was interested of learning about Internet technologies and stuff, and among other things, I read about spam and anti-spam measures.

    In the series of Things That I Can Totally Watch in Fourth of July As Someone From Not In The United States.

    This film is a total fucking masterpiece. Everything, everything, about this is awesome. You're going to the Moon! Oh, no, things don't go that way. But it is a successful recovery!

    I remember wathching this thing when it came out and it was bloody RIVETING. Watch it. Now.
