album 03 - this is space
Welcome to the astronaut candidate program. Now pay attention, because this could save your life. Trust me, I know what I’m talking about. Let me get a few things out of the way, right off the bat. Yes, I did in fact survive on a deserted planet by farming in my own shit. Yes, it’s actually worse than it sounds. So let’s not talk about that ever again. The other question I get most frequently is… “When I was up there, stranded by myself… did I think I was going to die?” Yes, absolutely. And that’s what you need to know going in because it’s going to happen to you. This is space. IT DOES NOT COOPERATE. At some point, everything is going to go south on you. Everything is going to go south and you’re going to say, “this is it, this is how I end”. Now, you can either accept that… Or you can get to work. That’s all it is. You just begin. You do the math, you solve one problem… Then you solve the next one. And then the next. And if you solve enough problems, you get to come home. All right, questions?
