    TV commercial with JFK

    I've seen the commercial advertising a watch with the clips from a JFK speech several time now. JFK says "we choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other thing". What is the "other thing"?

    GO CYCLONES!!!

    Re: TV commercial with JFK

    It's "other things." In context, the line is,

    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.
    It came about halfway through a speech he gave at Rice in 1962.


    Green hills for thy throne, and for crown a golden melody/Ringing in the hearts of all who bring thee love and loyalty/Dear Alma Mater, make our spirits great
    True and valiant like the bells of I-O-WA STATE!

    And thank you Stumpy for this:

    I always thought "the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard" was referring to banging Miss Monroe without Joe DiMaggio finding out.
