    "Hey, guys... where's the toolbag?" "Oh sh*t."

    NASA astronauts apparently let a vital tool bag drift into orbit on a spacewalk that is forcing mission control to salvage the remaining mission objectives. Mission control was also concerned that the tool bag might hit the Int'l Space Station and disrupt its orbit. I'd hate to be "that guy" when he gets back to Houston for the post-mission briefing.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    Even with all the gravity here on Earth my tools manage to float away and never be found again.
    Dude, I'm cheesing so hard right now.

    The morning conservative infotainment DJ ranted about this topic this morning. Often times he will make ridiculous statements in order to generate phone calls. When he went past "only men should be trusted with tools" to "this is why men should handle the important jobs", a woman called in with "I guess it's a good thing we didn't end up with a woman vice president isn't it." He had to admit that she had him.
