Questions for MEN only!
« on: January 20, 2007, 11:20:18 AM »
Hey, thought there was a post for WOMEN only, so figured we needed a thread only for men - no "girly men" allowed  :P  

Don't have any questions so far, but figured I'd see how many women hijacked the post.   :P

Here's the first:

How much of the alphabet can you recite in one beer belch?

O.K....I have one. Let'sa say you hunkered down on your extra tough, -20?F rated sleeping bag, you also have a good Dupont Hollofill jacket on, and 2 pair of cotton excersise pants, a good set of thinsulate gloves.

  Your saying to yourself: " Cold freeze...smleeze", is this the toughest weather you can throw this way, i am all comfy here snuggly warm and beating the elements as they howl in my military reinforced 50 mph wind resistant tent .

  Cool, right :?: ...but theeeenn.....out of now where, you get the urge. You can beat it, it's there you gotta go and fast..you gotta pee. You can keep it in with you until the morning , it's going to sting :oops:  , even if you try. You are all zippered up and ready to take some some Zzzz's. :mrgreen:

  What are your options, is there something oput there to just let it all go :?: ...or are you going to have and do the whole banana peeling thing to go out. #-o

 Something, that has crossed my path, on several times.
Stay thirsty, my friends.

Well, if you hadn't had all those beers so you could work on the alphabet, you wouldn't be in this pickle! :mrgreen:

Question -- who has the most Craftsman sockets and ratchets?  (that seemed a manly question to ask).  :D

The way I see it, you have many choices.  
1.  Do the Alan Shepard astronaut type thing and just pee in your bag - ie. when he was the first American to get launched, they hadn't figured he'd be on the launch pad so long and hadn't built in anything to do his business with and couldn't get unzipped, so he just peed in his space suit.

2.  Forget the tent and sleeping bag and get you an R2D2 unit and you don't have to worry about it.

3.  If I'm in a tent, sleeping bag, etc. - I just get up and do it.  I can't sleep well with the "urge" so I just get up, unzip and do it regardless of the weather.  Not going to do it in the tent either in a bottle or something, too big of a chance of spilling it and in a backpacking tent no room.  Just be a Man and Do it! :P

Yes, that is true.  Didn't the flight controllers see it by way of temperature changes in his space suit?

Yep.  In the book from Tom ??? "The Right Stuff", they made the poor man "wait forever" until they game him permission to relieve himself.  They weren't sure if it would short out some electrical stuff and shock him.  Werner Von Braun finally gave him permission to "relieve himself".  If I recall correctly from his book, Shepard threatened to unzip the suit, open the hatch, and stand out on the platform and do it for all the world to see.  :shock:

Tom Wolfe.  Great book and good movie!

Shepard likely would have done that (opened the hatch and shown the world...)

not sure about the alphabet, but can do a great renditition of.... "Deutchesland,Deutchseland, uber alles" ...Pearl Beer and warm champagne in the Hot Springs can produce an enormous amount of gas. Perhaps the "no alcoholic beverages" rule was an effort to curb Global Warming by "greenhouse gasses"
Margaritas and Motrin- It's not just for breakfast anymore.

Two words....pee bottle.

Take a 32 oz nalgene bottle with you into the tent. You might choose to label it so that it doesn't get mistaken for lime gatorade. Then when nature calls, try not to overfill the bottle.
