It's also highly unlikely that an astronaut would flip out, drive a thousand
miles across country (wearing any sort of diaper), and try to murder an Air
Force captain, yet here we are.

NASA can't even keep their metric and English units straight; I seriously
doubt that a determined, crazy astronaut would have much difficulty lifting
a few Space Diapers(tm).

Right: Space Diapers(tm)!  Far more disturbing in that article is the TMI
explaining how we beat the Russians to the moon:

"When astronauts walked on the moon there was a kind of spandex trunk but
the fecal and urine collection devices fitted into the trunk . the spandex
tights just held them into place" 

"Devices."  Yikes on a bike.

And sometimes for reasons of <british_accent>MURDER</british_accent>.

That's all a load of ancient history jibber-jabber.  It's the 21st century,
and we now have Space Diaper(tm) technology.  They work in zero-G, in a
vacuum, upside-down, and even underwater.  NASA can't keep this breakthrough
to themselves forever, and when it finally does leak out, it's freedom baby
