Even after all these years the questions still keep coming to me.
Didn’t it, well, all get a bit stinky up there in that tin can? What with that space food gloop they ate and those space nappies and those tubes they had to stick in to those unmentionable places. Then the poor buggers got back to earth and they were shoved in a silver caravan together for another 21 days and made to eat TV dinners.
1. Did the air conditioning have a max-extract function?
2. Who had the job of extracting the astro-poo and has it been preserved for future generations?
3. What a luxury it must have been to make a private visit to the bog without Buzz buzzing around mid-ablution.
No wonder they’ve barely spoken to each other since 1969.
With exactly three years to go to the opening ceremony of the London Olympic Games here is a nice timelapse video of the last year. The Olympic Stadium is looking very stadium like already. Sure it’s a pragmatic design (’sustainability’ has been such a gift to the unimaginative cost-cutters) but it looks set to be completed well ahead of schedule. Shame they won’t be rebuilding the whole of London Underground for 2012 – that would be a legacy.
Need to know
..why some restaurants won’t allow you to opt out of unwanted side salad adornments when you order food. If I wanted a slice of orange and some manky coleslaw I’d have brought it myself in a special Garnishes of the Eighties retro Tupperware Garnish Galoshâ„¢. Look, I’m saving you money – you can retain the fruit/cabbage combo for the next punter and charge me the same. I’ll be happy, you’ll be richer: we both win. It’s not allowed? I have to have coleslaw? The computer insists? Sigh.
