Captain Butterfingers

'How many astronauts does it take to unscrew a bolt?'

It sucks when you are trying to hang a picture and the nail slips from your fingers and it rolls under the couch.

How about it floating into the black void that is space?

But this is what gets me about this story:

In July, Discovery spacewalkers lost a 14-inch spatula that floated away.

What were they doing up there? Making pancakes in the cargo bay?

Why is there a spatula now orbiting the Earth?!

oh.. here is the reason.

I never thought I'd google "spatula in space" and actually get an answer.

Internet rules.
