Following on from my last blog about NASA crashing a probe into the Moon, since the recent
return of the Space Shuttle one of the greatest space secrets of all time can now be
revealed. It could be as big as the mystery of the Holy Grail, the riddle of the Sphinx and
what really happened to Sheargar combined!
Now over time NASA has sought to justify the horrendous expenditure they have incurred by
claiming that numerous amazing inventions have come out of the space programme as side
This is known as the Teflon effect from the assertion that it wasn't for NASA we may never
have discovered Teflon and where would we be today without the Teflon Fry pan? I mean,
would your life fall apart? Mine would!
They claim this benefit in relation to all sorts of incredible inventions that they say
would never have been made if we hadn't ventured into space. I mean the pen that can write
with the nib above the ink for example. Awesome!! It changed my life, how about yours?
That's got to be worth a few hundred million isn't it?
All this of course is hubris of the highest order because if in fact any of these great
discoveries truly are to the benefit of mankind then we could have discovered them simply by
focusing on the need down here and seeing what would help alleviate suffering, food
shortages, disease or whatever.
You don't need to go to space to see the need you just need to open your eyes or pull your
head out of your backside!
Which neatly brings us to the latest NASA uber invention.
And it is ....... underpants you don't have to change for a month and maybe more!!
Apparently one of the astronauts was trying these out for a month without telling his crew
mates (what a cool guy huh?) during the latest expedition.
I wonder if these undies are also made of Teflon?
They might not need changing for a month or more but wouldn't they chafe a bit?
Maybe with a bit more tweaking and refinement we can come up with a dual space saving
invention of undies that you can also fry your food on in Space?
Remember, you heard it here first folks! I could be rich next time I write!
