Watching/Listening NASA tv @ work all day (like today) and from time to time explain to your coleagues what exactly is happening with all the complicated terminology after an simple question like "whats that your watching?", and ending that with an "isnt that awesome?" 2 out of 10 replied with an yes. :O

Ok, let's take rokushakubo's story a little further...
When it's time to go home, you:
1) Climb into your car through a narrow tube.
2) You sit in you seat and wait for the pressure to equalize.
3) You use the starter to move the car slowly away.
4) Once at a safe distance, you get going with a short burst from the motor.
5) Now, stick your head and upper body out of the window and inspect the underside of your car (NOTE: This can be tricky, but fortunately we're not going very fast).
6) While still moving, stow the aerial and close the trunk.
7) Coast onto the highway, at the same time turrning the car backwards (just ignore all the comm noise, like horns, curses etc).
Cool At just the right moment start the engine, put the car in reverse and floor it!
9) Just before running out of fuel, turn off the engine.
10) Now turn the car around (why, just use the hand brake, silly...).
12) Then you just sit there, wondering if you have forgotten something...
13) As you get to your exit, turn up the heat fully and turn off the radio.

And could someone else take us to the HAC and home, because I'm laughing too hard. This thread is priceless!!!

Well, some more,

- When you refer to your passengers as "Mission Specialists" and your wife (or husband) as "Pilot" or "Commander", depending on whether you drive or not (or who's da boss  Grin )
- When you call home asking for the weather conditions at the estimated car "landing" time.
- When you install safety belts on your toilet.
- When you refer to a house door as "airlock" and wait a bit before entering to allow for "pressure equalization".

Well, technically that means that YOUR WIFE is addicted to SSM2007 - or that you may need some more Ground School training in handling dangerous and expensive payload  Cheesy

Hmm, strange.  What reader are you using?

I recommend Foxit, the Adobe PDF reader is far too bloated, foxit is wonderful; nice and small.

Go to this website: http://www.shuttlepresskit.com/STS-103/scom.htm
You can try to open the entire manual from here, or open each chapter separately, just as you like. Wink
