    His voice kind of reminded me of Crispin Glover...kind of psychoish. Maybe it`s just me...I`m kind of psychoish at times.

    I`m guessing that logic means only idiots get laid?

    Have you not seen them breeding? :P

    The titles kept saying NASA expedition, so I`m guessing it`s in space, and it makes sense in a way, there`s the little metal lasso holding the water there like a bubble wand.

    I`m surprised the Alka Seltzer didn`t create enough gas to break the inner surface tension of the water and burst.

    Hmm, Nasa and zero gravity? How did they do that? Because as far as I know there is no place in the universe devoid of gravity. Simply amazing. How`d he do this indeed?

    @thelonius you are right, in space there is microgravity, think of it like residue of the gravity fields of large objects (planets, stars..) but it`s not strong enough to affect anything.. he must have been pretty far from Earth.. at a distance of about twice the earth`s radius(from the surface), the gravity is like 1/9 of its strenght on the surface..
    *scratching head.. * *waiting for insults* (and that`s the art of useless things..)

    The reason that there appears to be no gravity is that everything is in free fall around the earth.

    And since everything falls to earth at the same speed, there appears to be no gravity.

    And he`s only about 190 miles above the Earth too.
