News, but not the serious kind
Leave that damned hatch open!
Good news, International Space Station residents!
Your fellow astronaut, Koichi Wakata, will be doing an interesting new scientific test aboard the station: “Odor-Free Underwear!”
Good question, ISP. Koichi will go without changing his underpants for more than a week, and we’ll see if you end up pushing him through the main hatch and locking it.
Houston, is this a fricking joke?
That’s a negative, ISP. We are big-stink serious.
Copy that, Houston, you DO realize that we’re the same dudes ALREADY testing a urine recycler? This place is gonna reek like an Infield latrine at the Indy 500!
Sorry, ISP, but do you know what your laundry bills are running? We just can’t afford it anymore. We’ll send up some Tang-scented room spray in the next shuttle. Let’s move on. Open your instructions for “The Navy Bean and Garlic Space Diet…”
Can you repeat that, Houston? We were just giving Koichi an atomic space wedgie!”
