John "Jack" Simpson Kirkpatrick (centre of picture) who served under the name John Simpson, was a stretcher bearer with the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) during the Gallipoli Campaign. After landing at Anzac Cove on 25 April 1915, he obtained a donkey and began carrying wounded soldiers from the frontline to the beach, for evacuation. He did this for three and a half weeks, often under fire, until he was killed. Simpson and his Donkey are a key part of the "Anzac legend".

Neil Degrasse Tyson is invited. When Tijuana take a break in between their sets I want to have an open mike set up for Neil (and anyone else who has an opinion I admire) to get up and talk about space and stuff. His voice is so soothing...like Isaac Hayes or Barry White....omg I better invite them too.
