Nobody Fixes a Toilet like a Space Man

Nobody Flashes

Did you know that there were two guys in the Space Station right now? Dan Burbank and Don Pettit are floating above us at this very minute. (I think) And what are they doing there? More importantly, did we the American Taxpayers have to pay the Russians $40 million dollars for two America men to get up to the Space Station just to fix the toilet and put out the garbage?

I love the internet…it’s like a box of chocolate, you never know when you are going to see Forest Gump Candy Wrappers floating around a space station, while good American men are trying to perform brain surgery in space, in shorts, and with a sense of humor.   I would have liked to see the version they didn’t post.

Toward the end of the video you get the feeling that Don Pettit is trying to reassure Al Gore that they are being very careful about all that space garbage…AND the toilet. I got a kick out this video…but I would have liked it more if it was Al Gore floating up there fixing the toilet.

You can’t have it all, can you?

Enjoy!

March 15: A Day for Spacebats

Nobody’s Fool

Space….the final frontier…reminds us on this St. Patty’s Day weekend, —that we lost a brave Irish bat named Mahoney, on March 15, 2009.  (How do I know he was Irish? Listen the music…) Bat Mahoney…took to the sky, hitching a ride on the tail of NASA’s Discovery…to make that final voyage that from now on, will no longer be dreamed of by bats or American men.

We have ended our quest to explore space. But not every man is going to stop leaping new bounds. Now we have a brave German to take his place.

Austrian skydiver Felix Baumgartner ( A GERMAN!)  took a practice jump today, (March 15, 2012) to help him prepare for his leap from the edge of space later this year where he hopes to not only break the sound barrier with his body, but also break the record for the longest free fall.

Yes, Felix, who wants to be the first man to break the sound barrier with his head, can thank the brave and noble Irish Bat Mahoney, for paving the way for men like him.  Will Felix’s body fall to the ground intact?

Will we hear a human sonic boom? Or a human sonic splat?

Or will, like poor Bat Mahoony, will Felix just fall onto the ground and someone will make a video with sweet German polka’s in the background remembering his great bravery?

Nobody Knows how much Red Bull is paying Felix to jump off its Red Bull Stratos, but I’ld like to personally think them for the entertainment.
