    It started off with me posting ten, and then I let everyone write their own. It wasn't meant to remain ten.

    Word has come down from Top: No more astronauts are to show the female technicians the "alien" they have in a box in their lap. Gordo that means you in particular!

    I will not put the countdown on hold because someone's aunt didn't like what her tarot cards told her.

    Whining about bringing back the Gemini program is a big career killer.

    Wearing Superman underoos on the first day of a space mission. After a few weeks nobody cares what you wear, but doing it on the first day out in space is an automatic space-hazing party.

    Not allowed to toast marshmallows over the retrorocket flame, and thereby proceed to make S'Mores. [What was the point in going into space then???]

    I will not spray WD-40 on my co-workers, nor lab-rats, when they squeak.

    Not allowed to give The Vulcan Hand Salute, and especially not The Vulcan Neck Pinch (even if someone deserves the latter).
    GOODBYE.

    I will not reveal the names of the astronauts who star in that video involving pacifiers, diapers, and a large woman called "The Governess."

    "It is still my professional opinion that Apollo 18 crew wear swords. Katanas perhaps claymores but the weight issue can be overcome." This was the last thing I said working for NASA.

    I will not celebrate the independance of my country by attempting to ignite anything that has a fuse.
    I will not add fuse to anything that I think would make a really big firework.
    I will not buy fuse, nor will I procure it on the Internet using the Mission Commander's eBay account.
    I will not make fuse out of inoccuous materials.

    [sigh]I will not convince/pay anyone, including the housekeeping staff, to sneak some fuse onto any NASA property for me - ever,... (again ) [/sigh]

    I will not hang out the window and swing a bat at the Russian satellites as we past them.

    A note from your mother will not get you out of training sessions.
