That's the last time NASA sends up Tex Mex.

The American toilet on earth has blown up, too.

The real question is how did the Russians sneak the cherry bomb into the space station?

Next time you're out on a warm Summer night and you see a shooting star, it may not be what you think it is...

This is an example where you don't want life imitating art.  A fecal Jackson Pollock is not going to appreciate in value.

What, they just kick the poop and urine out a trap door to freeze in a clump and eventually burn up in the atmosphere? Don't they know how illegal that is?! Both America and Russia are signatories to a treaty that bans icy BMs.

Damn I was hoping to hear about how feces went EVERYWHERE.  Not that the toilet sprung a leak at the high pressure tube.

That's the last time they'll watch the Rocky Horror Picture Show there. They probably clogged the toilets with toilet paper.

My wife was recently watching Dead Like Me and we wondered the same thing. Our best guess was that she had an eating disorder that got too visible to put on camera. She's dangerously thin in a couple of the later episodes.

Thank you!  That's the story I wanted to read.

Especially the part where EVERYONE denied it was their's.  3 people in a locked room, with no exits...lets blame the strange alien guy who ran in the capsule, took a dump, and escaped out into the vacuum.

Naw, the toilet itself was fine. A quick disconnect on one of the water supply lines malfunctioned. Here's a far less stupid article.

According to a search, Charlie is 5' 10" and Emilio is 5' 7".

She was in 2 episodes of Hannibal, and does a fair amount of commercial voice work.

Welcome to the US "news" media.  Reality: A pressurized water line quick disconnect fitting was unplugged as part of some work.  The fitting is not supposed to leak when unplugged.  It leaked.  So the astronaut plugged it back in.  The leak stopped.  "News":  ZOMG a toilet BLEW UP!

And the media can't understand why they are held in lower esteem than a used car salesman since at least the 80's.
