Name That List, #32

What is this a list of? The answer is below in extended.

  • 5 American flags
  • 2 golf balls
  • 12 pairs of boots
  • 96 bags of urine, feces, and vomit
  • Several improvised javelins
  • Insulating blankets
  • Used wet wipes
  • A feather from Baggin, the Air Force Academy's mascot falcon
  • A small silicon disk bearing goodwill messages from 73 world leaders
  • A cast golden olive branch


It's a partial inventory of things that have been left on the surface of the moon by mankind.

The golf balls gave it away.

I understand most of it, but why javelins?

Bet the javelins were thrown to see how far they'd go in the reduced gravity.

Or maybe the javelins were to defend against the Moon Monsters?

Cast golden olive branch? Not sure that's sending the right message. We believe in Peace first, but if you've got Money, we listen to that too.

There were actually 6 flags.

There is a Texas joke in there, somewhere.

My initial thought is junk we left on the moon from the manned missions. That's the second one I've gotten recently. I think Alex is going easy on us.
