Houston, we have a pooblem.
 
2013-04-09 07:47:06 PM  
A 500-page-plus transcript of the declassified mission log records tons of routine conversations among the mission's three astronauts: commander Tom Stafford, lunar module pilot Gene Cernan and command module pilot John Young. But six days into the eight-day mission, around page 414, an emergency pops up...


Ground control to Major Tom (10)
Ground control to Major Tom (9)
Clean your bunghole and may God's luck be with you....(7)
For here, am I shiatting in a tin can, far above the Earth.
Planet Earth is blue, and look!  My floating poo....

Though I'm past 100,000 miles
I'm pushing cloth and doing turtleheads
And Apollo 10 smells like shiat
Tell my Gene I can tell he had corn for dinner (he knoooo-ohh-ohh-ows!)

Ground control to Major Tom, there's something wrong
Your shiatter's full!
Can you hear me, Major Tom?

Mary Roach had this covered a year or two ago. Start with that book, then read the rest of her books. She's hilarious.

This is exactly my point about all the spacenuts who talk about wanting to move the human race into space. Are you kidding? The people down here on Earth can barely prevent shiatting themselves, and you want to put these people in zero g with no atmosphere?

Good luck with that. Humanity isn't going anywhere.

my astronaut CSB : many moons ago i got to meet neil armstrong, and talk with him very briefly. i wanted something a bit more esoteric than talking about typical stuff i figured people asked, so i asked what the weirdest thing about 1/6th gravity was.

apparently it was peeing. taking a steamer worked just like on earth, but pee moved very... oddly, was his description.

Luddite. If you poop into the 3D unprinter, it makes feedstock for the 3D printer that's next to it, and thus the cycle of life continues as the species grows gloriously and fecally into the universe.

Kerbal Space Program thread?  Yup, Kerbal Space Program thread.

Just got a fueler into stable orbit last night, then tonight put another one up, this time featuring solar panels so the damned thing didn't run out of power this time (hah!).  Now trying to master the art of docking...yah this is not going so good.  Funny, but not going so good :P

GIS results indicate this is similar to my first few attempts at getting a fueler into orbit:

I spent a few nights last month reading the entire Apollo 13 transcripts and those guys made some poop jokes too. Also, they spent a hell of a lot of time having to adjust the antennas. I'd imagine nowadays it'd be so much easier with digital communication and computers.

Sgygus: DNA test the turds so we know who to blame.


you do know that ID via poop DNA is almost impossible due to teh millions of bacteria variants in there right ? not to mention what you ate...

unless you shot the president and shiat on the oval; office desk, no one is spending the time or money for poop ID.

It has been indeed, the game is a great mash-up of lego & physics.  Definitely high recommendations, it scratches that playing-with-rocket-set-but-on-a-much-grander-scale itch nicely.
