As some of you may already know, the toilet on the international space station has been broken for 2 weeks. This is the only toilet in the whole place. Two weeks, one broken toilet, three astronauts...I don't like that math.
What the crap did they do?
It's not like you can just go outside and pee in the bushes. I'm sure there are some resealable containers somewhere on the space station, but collecting two weeks worth of urine and feces from 3 people starts to add up.
I like to think they that all just drop a deuce in an airlock somewhere, and then once a day, seal it off from the inside and blow everything out into space. If you don't know what I mean, watch any of the "Aliens" movies, and I'm sure Sigourney Weaver will demonstrate the technique on an alien. What kind of name is Sigourney anyway; is it Dutch?
Anyway, back to the human excrement. They're trying to fix the problem today, so let's just hope that astronauts/cosmonauts make good plumbers too. Saturn's rings are nice, but Earth doesn't need a ring of frozen piss and butt nuggets; we've got enough problems already. It's ok to have secret nukes and satellites in orbit, but I don't want to get hit by a falling ass-teroid, if you can smell what I'm cookin'.
