How Astronauts Talk Dirty
So, apparently, when NASA astronauts want to talk dirty to each other, they come up with such titillating lines as: "First urge will be to rip your clothes off" and "But honestly, love, I want you to totally and thoroughly enjoy your hero's homecoming." I guess I was expecting more from the article, considering the headline on CNN was "Sexy e-mails shed light on astronaut's bizarre behavior". Maybe I was expecting too much, but dammit people these are astronauts. They're supposed to be good at everything, right? Remember Apollo 13? They were stranded in outer space, destined to run out of oxygen. Then Tom Hanks' character pulled some MacGyver-type action with duct tape, chewing gum, and the urine of his frightened co-pilot who did nothing but pee himself out of fear. Houston, problem solved.
So, needless to say, after reading these emails I am very disappointed in our space program -- no creativity here.
