Does this space suit make me look fat?

Yes. And apparently, when women get to another planet, the first priority will be shopping.

So it has come to this. Every time I think America's decline has reached a new, unbreachable depth, we succeed in smashing through the floor to the next embarrassment. Witness NASA's latest contribution to humanity's quest for the stars. NASA is holding a online contest by which the public will pick the look of its new spacesuit. Shouldn't we be more worried about our inability to put people into space, rather than how we will look when we boldly get to where we cannot go by ourselves? This is like redesigning your running shoes after being paralyzed from the neck down. Some call that high hopes - I call it delusional optimism.
