104:13:11 CAPCOM to FIDO: "Time's flying, boy"

A rare case of the Capcom communicating directly with a flight controller!

FIDO (Jay Greene) and Rendezvous think that the Capcom (Charlie Duke) told the crew 37 minutes to T3, rather than the correct 27 minutes.

"That was ten minutes ago!" says Duke. "Time's flying, boy."

Disagreement ensues.

Subsequently, and I believe related, the question of who Phil Shaffer was laughing at: https://apolloinrealtime.org/11/?t=104:16:06&ch=20

"I'm getting a horse laugh from Shaffer," says Greene.

"That's deserved."

"How do you know?"

"Well, I'm sure he was laughing at me."

"Nah, he wasn't. He was laughing at me."

Even more subsequently, Rendezvous concludes that they were listening to the PAO tape, which was exactly 10 minutes delayed: https://apolloinrealtime.org/11/?t=104:33:29&ch=20

"I'll extend your apologies," says Jay Greene dryly.
