chop sticks in space


I'm a kid of my generation. I grew up watching footage of astronauts floating in their tin can, chomping m&ms like Pacman and slurping floating balls of juice with a straw. he chopsticks seem like a good idea to me. If something starts to get away, they would add to your reach.

Cool photo. I still LOVE Tang because the astronauts drank that shit.

New technology- meet old technology.

SB: A piece of advice: gin and tang is not at all the same as gin and juice.

Mama: if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

My brother, delivering the eulogy for his mother-in-law, truly said:

"Please join us after the service at the Legion Hall, where they're serving us egg salad sandwiches and Tang."

And so it was - the Ladies Auxiliary couldn't stir up batches of Tang fast enough! :)

Honestly, that sounds like the worst lunch I have ever heard of. (I'm not an egg salad fan.)

It's the kind of smelly food that people either love or hate - I love certain versions of it, must have mayo and green onion and maybe even pickle chunks

Yeah, no, I'll let you have my share.

DTG,
No, it's not. Right now, I'm into Emergen-C combined with vodka! I heard you have a cold. That shit works.

Love,

Moi

I like Emergen-C because it's fizzy.

That is the very same reason I love Emergen-C. I mean sure, it helps a little when I'm sick and with hangovers... but it's fizzy!

Ha, great minds.
