Demystification of the astronaut's job description that I really didn't need to read

There's a tawdry story of an astronaut gone bad here--it's like a big-budget Springer episode--but the sentence that got me was this:
Astronauts wear diapers during launch and re-entry.

Of course, the original astronauts are now at an age where they may be wearing them 24 hours a day.

If you were to make me re-enter the atmosphere in some souped-up airplane, I'd need a diaper too.

Your astronaut post is much funnier than my astronaut post.

That's why I get the big money.

I believe the proper term is "maximum absorbancy garment".
