Holiday Dinner...In Space

     ISS, zero-G dorm room: pretty much the same thing.  (Be sure to check out the hi-rez version!)  Money quote: "...three different brands of peanut butter, 3 bottles of hot sauce, mini-Reeses peanut butter cups, Ghirardelli chocolates, and Tic Tacs. In other words they really eat like geeks." (And he overlooked "The Good Chocolate" bar, at that.)

     Physically-fit and highly-skilled geeks, mind you, but geeks nevertheless.  Let the meek have the Earth -- just as long as geeks get outer space.  (In space, you've got to have condiments.)

Yes, condiments. Ketchup as some say, is universal. And don't forget the immortal advice of Shepherd Book:

The important thing is the spices. A man can live on packaged food from here 'til Judgment Day if he's got enough rosemary.

"Blessed are the geeks, for they shall Internet the Earth."

And space, apparently.
