Garn One!

Who exactly is this mysterious balding man?

Well, my dear Watson, observe that he is wearing a NASA uniform and is posing with a small spaceship. We can deduce that A) he is really excited about the model rocket he just built or B) he is an astronaut. Actually, this fine, upstanding American is Jake Garn, Republican senator-turned-Astronaut. His extreme nauseousness in space has earned him everlasting fame as the inspiration behind the "Garn Scale," commonly used today at NASA.

"Jake Garn: "For those who don't know, it's a Garn One, Garn Two, Garn Three. It's a measurement of how sick you are."

"Basically, at Garn One, you feel pretty good. Garn Ten, you wish you were dead." (ksl)

It's been a Garn One day, people. I'm feeling good.
