Open the pod bay door Hal...

Somehow,I don't find this at all encouraging:

How long could you survive in the vacuum of space?

Hmm - I note that if I choose "middle-aged", I get the same result as you, but if I choose "elderly", I only last 60 seconds. Truth is - and I'd better start facing up to it - I suppose I'm closer to the latter than the former these days. Damn.

I managed to last 1:23 minutes. Probably, because I'm too fat to die in haste...

Well, you know Nele, some things shouldn't be rushed...

I know what you mean, Geoff. I find it surprising enough sometimes finding myself in the 'middle-aged' category. What the hell happened?

In any case, the odds of finding ourselves thrown into the vacuum of space are rather improbable.

And, as we all know, the odds of being rescued by a passing spaceship after being thrown out of an airlock are even more improbable.

Indeed, infinitely so.
