    Pretty funny if you don't have to actually deal with it. Hope they get it fixed.

    Looks to me like we have a bunch of spoiled, pansy astronauts. If bags with sticky openings were good enough for Apollo, they should be good enough for them.

    I bet they don't even know how to use the three seashells.

    So long as there is no exchanging of bodily fluids going on up there...


    EDIT I suppose in the context of this conversation, that quote is misleading...


    Oh well

    Just so they don't end up dumping it outside the space station. It would really stink if a multi-billion dollar satellite was brought down because of a collision with a bag of orbiting high-speed poo... (any puns intended)

    Space age technology and somebody plugs the crapper and forgot the plunger. That old theory about what happens when **** hits the fan is now dubunked. The fan just stops........:biggrin:
