Seems to be a thing today about drunk NASA astronauts.

Aviation Week & Space Technology reported on its Web site that a special panel studying astronaut health found that on two occasions, astronauts were allowed to fly after flight surgeons and other astronauts warned they were so drunk they posed a safety risk.

The independent panel also found "heavy use of alcohol" before launch — within the standard 12-hour "bottle-to-throttle" rule, the magazine reported.

I can't see why you would want to drink before you sat in a massive rocket that was about to to be shot into space.

fear holding on to you

It seems that the extent of ones fear.. can determine how much we will hold onto another external person or thing.

Some hold onto dogma
Some hold onto lovers
Some hold onto teachers
Some hold onto possessions

But all these things will change.. and in fact can not be held beyond their sell by date.

Can you hold onto to anything ?

Nothing in the material world is constant and lasting, so if you are after practical things in life, other that just dreams, the answer is no.

If ease in life is something you desire, practicing letting go would be a good thing.

If you let go of everything.. what you are left with is you.

Were you looking for something important ?
