6 Awesome Things I’m Not Cool Enough To Own

#6. Fedora
The longing for the elegance and masculinity of the fedora is real, but the realization of wearing one in the 21st century as being the act of poseur is even stronger. That’s why even in my novel, where the protagonist shares my name, I could hardly bear to let him wear a fedora. First, I made it his grandfather’s, and then I had his best friend call him a “hipster douchebag” the rest of the book for doing it.

After I read this I thought maybe I wrote it, but nope, it’s Gladstone.

Hey so Chris Hadfield wrote us an article (!) involving pooping and peeing (!!!!!!!).
6 Ways Movies Get Space Wrong (by Astronaut Chris Hadfield)

#5. Going to the Bathroom in Space Is Awesome
For the solid waste, air sucks it into storage, where it’s exposed to the vacuum of space, which kills off any bacteria and neutralizes the smell. We have to brace ourselves in order to keep the digested remnants of our freeze-dried ice cream from floating off into the station, but other than a bit of an upward draft, it’s rather comfortable. The waste is packed onto returning supply ships, which burn up when re-entering the Earth’s atmosphere (so if you saw a shooting star in early 2013, you might have had me to thank, although I wouldn’t recommend wishing upon it).
For urine, men use a funnel and women use a cup. These attach to a tube that sucks the urine into storage, where it’s later converted into drinking water. It’s expensive and impractical to bring water up to the station, so every drop of refinable liquid counts. And you can pee upside down, which I did, just for fun. Wouldn’t you?

Kind of tempted to write a Soren-Col. Hadfield sci-fi slash-fic column now.

I read this as a kid and it had a really significant effect on me and and it’s a big influence on my world view and I still think it’s the most beautiful and profound thing anyone’s ever said about beauty


I remember lying on the floor of my parents’ room reading this one afternoon and coming to this page, and being struck by how beautiful the person in the bottom picture was, and knowing it was true and I’d remember it forever. 

It’s not very often you can pinpoint the moment you internalized a lesson that will make you a better person.
