NASA has offered for general sale a high-tech "electrolytic rehydration drink" developed to keep astronauts in top shape under the physiological stresses of orbital flight. For a truly authentic astronaut experience, Earthbound drinkers of "The Right Stuff™" may wish to mix their cutting-edge space beverage with (purified) rat …
The Rat Stuff?
As they might say in Yorkshire.
I know a Pub that has been selling Rat Pi$$ by the pint for years.
Makes Dr Pepper look drinkable...
.....remember dasani? - "what's the worst that can happen?"
"self-sourced liquids" - very welcome smiles on Friday.
no blue milk?
no prune juice (a warriors drink!)
mines the one with the bottle of romulan ale in the pocket
What a lovely press release.
"Astronauts continue to use the patented formula on space missions to prevent the symptoms of dehydration."
Shame it doesn't actually prevent dehydration, that might be even more useful!
"far more pure and healthy than average tap water (or even bottled)"
Tap water (in the UK at least) is purified and regulated to a far higher standard than bottled.
RE: scifi drinks
You forgot Moloko Velocet etc.
In space nobody can hear your stream
So that'll be any kind of lager then?
Since that turned out to be made from Thames tap, there was probably a fair amount of recycled rat piss in there too.
Makes you wonder why they bothered adding the carcinogens.
Actually it's an ale. ;)
Sure, if by "purified and regulated" you mean pumped full of so much damn chlorine that it tastes like drinking a swimming pool.
Drink Brawndo - It's Got Electrolytes!
I have this sudden flashback to Mike Judge's film "Idiocracy" where the no.1 drink is called Brawndo (it's got electrolytes), where it's dispensed from drinking fountains and they even try to water the crops with it.
Then some nutcase turned it into a real drink - http://www.brawndo.com
It's got what plants crave!
It's got electrolytes!
Unaccompanied closing tag
How exactly do they extract the piss from the rats....?
Signs on the cages saying "prudence", "recovery is just around the corner", "I have the full support of my party"
"You long-tailed red-eyed furry little bastards."
Sorry, but you were asking for that.
