    Space station toilet breaks down

    The main toilet has broken down on the International Space Station (ISS), currently home to a record 13 astronauts, Nasa said.


    Mission Control told the crew to hang an "out of service" sign until the toilet can be fixed.

    No more Mexican food in space until further notice.

    And, in related news, on the NYSE, the price of stock in "Baggies" just skyrocketed.

    Probably the result of cost cutting efforts....too much desire to eliminate waste....

    Imagine the damage a metortoid can do traveling at 17,000 mph...Scarey....

    Let's hope they don't have to take a space dump.

    There are two toilets aboard the ISS. Only one is broken.
