    Default Fly on the wall question



    Many times I have said it would have been nice to be on a wall...

    My question is, would you name at least one time (more than one is welcome, if you wish) you would like to have been that fly on the wall to see/listen to, etc an event or events that would be so cool to have witnessed?

    I'll start by saying being present at the Beatles Sgt. Peppers album sessions at Abbey Road Studios. Also, at Mission Control for the entire flight of Apollo 11.

    Any takers?

    .....While the plot to take out JFK was being discussed...
    As a bonus, while the plans for the Great Pyramid were being drawn up and it was being assembled...
