You're about to board a space station, you turn & look down at the Earth, a perfect sphere floating majestically in the vastness of the universe, what is the first thought that comes into your mind?

Asked by ucme (46707points) September 14th, 2010

Just surmisng for a moment that you’re made of the “right stuff.” You pass all the procedures & you find yourself hurtling out of our atmosphere at a frightening rate of knots. You’re an astronaut god damn it!! Setting all this excitement to one side for a brief spell. What do you imagine your reaction would be when you gazed upon Mother Earth from such a privileged position? Open to interpretation so you may answer any way you wish.

Oh, jeez, I hope I don’t die. (I usually have this thought before any risky behavior, and then I proceed.)

Damn William Shatner and his stupid TV commercials. This is the last time I’ll book a vacation on Priceline.
