In space, no one can hear you retch from the god awful stink.

Stink!

What was missing from outer space? Rotten awful smelling cabbage! Now I know it’s a Korean delicacy and they want to send it up with their astronauts to the space station but if you’ve ever smelled this stuff you’d know it’s not good to be trapped in a small space with. I mean listen to this for Christ’s sake:

Ordinary kimchi is teeming with microbes, like lactic acid bacteria, which help fermentation. On Earth they are harmless, but scientists fear they could turn dangerous in space if cosmic rays cause them to mutate.

They’re afraid of MUTANT SPACE CABBAGE!!! Nothing good will come of this, rest assured. And don’t even get me started on kimchi farts…

Thanks for the warning Boing Boing.
