    Hmmm... I don't think we ever tested free-floating tears in space. Maybe we should send this guy up; he's not getting much done down here.

    Just hours after his Lasik surgey, Neil Armstrong has a critical error in judgement and goes in far too low and his handshake with John Boehner turns into a knucleball.

    Based on the smell of that cigarette smoke, I can tell you don't need a NASA rocket to be high any more.
