Astronaut to Engineer: What happens if the first parachute fails?

Engineer to Astronaut: We activate the secondary chute.

Astronaut to Engineer: That one that just seemed to be blown off the capsule by rockets?

Engineer to Astronaut: We have a tertiary chute.

This just proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that while today's astronauts are undeniably awesome, the original guys were so fucking hard that you don't even know. They knew this kind of shit could happen to them.

actually this is from a pretty recent test. The Orion is the new rocket based on the old Saturn platform that's *SUPPOSED* to replace the aging shuttle fleet in a few years....so far, im not convinced
