Spaced out...

As you may already know, the space shuttle was recently sent up again and the crew has been busy with the construction of a space station. I don’t really know exactly what it’s going to be used for, but in case there are long periods when there are no astronauts working on science type stuff, I’ve come up with some alternative uses for the space station:

A new "secret" CIA prison

The next presidential library

A Star Trek themed bordello

The setting for a new reality show called "Battle of the Mustachioed Stars", featuring Tom Selleck and Geraldo Rivera in the first episode.

A maternity ward for privacy obsessed celebrities…I’m talking to you Angelina Jolie!

The first orbiting Wal-Mart

Headquarters for the Michael Jackson Search for Extraterrestrial Boys Program

A mandatory retirement home for all radio talk show hosts

Personally, I’m hoping for the reality show…come on Tom, kick his ass!

"Star Trek bordello"

That one made me laugh. Unfortunately, I've got a rather bad cold, so my laugh turned instantly into a coughing fit that lasted a good ten seconds, curse you.

I mean, it's not like they're doing anything fun up there anyway. It's all like "what happens to beans if you grow 'em in zero-G?" or "the effect of weightlessness on kittens."

Actually, that kittens one would be pretty fun.

Where did you come up with that idea about a secret CIA prison? Huh? Fess up. Who told you? How did you find this out?

Geez, it's impossible to keep things secret these days!

Thanks PFB, bringing laughter and discomfort is what I'm all about.

Dan- Ok, I'll tell you,it was Condoleeza Rice...get a few drinks into her and she won't shut up.

I like the presidential library idea, although the space station is much too big for the next one. A closet in Crawford has plenty enough space.

Welcome're probably right about that. When Dubya hears people talk about the presidential library, he thinks they're talking about his collection of Louis L'Amour and Zane Grey novels.
