First the astronauts lose a tool bag, and now... a spider. This is very bad. Because if we have learned anything from watching movies, it is that this spider will now be exposed to radiation and turn into a hideous mutant creature that will destroy mankind.

You scared me, Dave. I was expecting a different hideous mutant creature, but you wouldn't do that to us, would you?


JM: NGL . . . AYCMM!!

Put a woman in charge of a spacewalk for the first time, and she loses her purse?!...

*SMACKS* Jeff! I didn't click on it but I know!

Dave, you disappointed me severely. I was dead certain that the hideous mutant mankind destroyer link would be a certain lounge singer.

Now, how is it that the space shuttle can have all these renovations done simulataneously and without major problems? I would expect that the shuttle's kitchen and bath would be in total disarray at this point, with mismatched tile, contractors not showing up on time or at all, crooked mouldings, shoddy electrical work, hideous substitutions, multiple schedule extensions and the other usual problems.

"Honey, will you hand me that tool bag?"
"Which one? Ooopsie!"
"It's okay! It's okay! **raggafraggacreebaschmugga...**"
"What did you say?"


Actually I sent a different version which includes a vid of the toolbag drifting away: here

Next on "Lost in Space," Tim "The Toolman" Allen attempts to fix the toilet and kill a spider in the Space Station.

Word is that one of the astronauts took a picture of that spider, and NASA is now trying to pay off the debts from the shuttle program with it.

I hope they have a spacebroom handy, just in case.

No fears, they have a backup spider. I think I saw it perform on David Bowie's "Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars" tour.

Men. Grease gun explodes early, and they blame the woman.

Let's all hope it doesn't wind up in someone's brain.


The United States Postal Service today delivered a package of grease-coated tools to NASA's Houston headquarters, bearing postmarks from Io, the innermost moon of Jupiter.

NASA spokesman Jake Slushmeyer expressed gratitude for the tools' return, as they were valued at over $100,000. He indicated that such a loss would be a significant blow to the already budget-strapped agency's mission of ascertaining the existence of extra-terrestrial life.

No worries, the missing spider just "wandered from the bedroom to the livingroom"...exactly what kind of accomodations do these spiders have?

Annie--There are many extraneous factors involved in my the grease gun exploding early!...It's not you, it's not me...

"If we have learned anything from watching movies, it is that this spider will now be exposed to radiation and turn into a hideous mutant creature that will destroy mankind."

According to the Metro version, it has already happened...!

Capt. Heidemarie Stefanyshyn-Piper of the Navy

Well, of course she dropped it. You would too, if you had to carry that name around all the time.
