Hey so Chris Hadfield wrote us an article (!) involving pooping and peeing (!!!!!!!).
6 Ways Movies Get Space Wrong (by Astronaut Chris Hadfield)

#5. Going to the Bathroom in Space Is Awesome
For the solid waste, air sucks it into storage, where it’s exposed to the vacuum of space, which kills off any bacteria and neutralizes the smell. We have to brace ourselves in order to keep the digested remnants of our freeze-dried ice cream from floating off into the station, but other than a bit of an upward draft, it’s rather comfortable. The waste is packed onto returning supply ships, which burn up when re-entering the Earth’s atmosphere (so if you saw a shooting star in early 2013, you might have had me to thank, although I wouldn’t recommend wishing upon it).
For urine, men use a funnel and women use a cup. These attach to a tube that sucks the urine into storage, where it’s later converted into drinking water. It’s expensive and impractical to bring water up to the station, so every drop of refinable liquid counts. And you can pee upside down, which I did, just for fun. Wouldn’t you?

I’m a scientist and I couldn’t stop reading this at work. Amazing article, super inspiring and quite frankly fucking awesome. I want to pee upside down

Why do science teachers not welcome students the first day with “Work hard enough at this and you get to pee upside down”?

Nixon and Khrushchev’s Kitchen Debates
On this day in 1959, Vice President Richard Nixon and Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev met for the opening of the American National Exhibition in Moscow. 
As Nixon led Khrushchev through the model house they began a series of impromptu debates (mainly held in the model kitchen), on capitalism and communism.  To debate such ideas both leaders used examples of household appliances to better stress their arguments.  Nixon’s performance in the “Kitchen Debate” further raised his stature back in the United States.
In this photograph we have Nixon and Khrushchev debating in front of the now famous model kitchen.  To the right of Nixon is future Soviet General Secretary Leonid Brezhnev.  7/24/59.
