Why Will My Waist Get Smaller In Space ?
« on: 20/09/2009 16:29:38 »
   

Dearest Space-Waistologists,

As A sheepy I of course have a waist. Out of all the packs of six that exist around waists....the six pack is my all time fave.

look , here's my waist.


Yep, that's my waist !





Nice eh ?

As ewe may or may not know I am in training to become an  space sheep and during my training, my trainer namedd "Hi, I'm Carly I'll be your personal space sheepy trainer today " informed me that when I go into space that my waist will get even smaller !..shock horror !..I can't have my space trousers falling down when conducting some vital space sheep manoeuvres. Having things waggle about in space will just not do. I guess I will have to ewes a space belt *le sigh*

So, why will my waist get smaller in space ?...and by how much ?

As a firm believer in empirical study I snuk into my neighbours house at 3am this morning and with a skip and a hop he gleefully became subdued after joyfully inhaling more chloroform. Without any protestation and with his full support he willingly allowed me to strap him to a rocket and without hesitation he gave no indication that I should not immediately fire him into space which i duly did with his blessing. I could tell he was excited because the on-board camera showed him waving his arms and legs about in hysterical pleasure. With a tape measure super-glued to his waist , the answer to my question was only a few minutes away. *le joy*  Now, as ewe know, in space no one can hear ewe scream so what does my neighbour fail to do ?...he's such a dufus head as he forgot to put his helmet on !!..well..with no air to help vocalise his voice I could not understand him......so no luck there !...such a shame because he looked to be having such fun turning blue and all that......so..I just pushed the ' abort ' button and he should be well on his way home soon.

So, can ewe help me understand the nature effect of space upon my waist ?


hugs & shmishes


mwah mwah mwah !

If you have a six pack you can kiss it goodbye* after few months in space...

Goodness gracious Sheepy! You and I could be twins, look here's my waist:


But, for safe keeping, I leave my waist with Cecil P. Gruntfuttock down at the local gym, while I look after his.
Look, here I am taking Cecil's waist on a day trip to the seaside.


I think while your waist may get smaller, due to the lack of gravity compressing your body, in space, after a while, as RD wrote, you will loose your physique for much the same reason.

The shipping hazard above could get the appearance of six-pack abdominals without exercise by using "Instant abs" ...
