Among the questions I never thought to ask . . .

. . . is why astronauts like horseradish and tabasco sause.  Other hot foods, too.  Turns out that without gravity, there can be no post nasal drip.  Which sounds like a good thing, but it really isn't.  If your sinuses don't drain, then you are constantly stuffed up.  And hot foods like shrimp cocktail with lots of horseradish work zero-G medicinal wonders.  Even if the shrimp do taste like card board.
