They don't. In space there is no up or down.

Up is relative to body position, so I suppose for an astronaut in space there is still up and down.

is this thread basically a rehash of the much-lamented Mark/Mirk's "Ask me anything!"?

Not really.

Until Big Mirk's disappearing act, those questions were meant to be answered. Here, it's optional.

Should the act of wanting to become President/Prime Minster/Dear Leader, and rule over all of one's fellow citizens, automatically disqualify one from office as proof of towering megalomania and as probably a danger to the public?

If black is the absorption of all colors, why does space appear black? Wouldn't something have to be there to absorb the color?

it's not perhaps the easiest page in the world to rad, owing to the font selected, but there's lots about the ancient art of diamond cutting here:

Diamond Guide: The Diamond Cutting Process 

n its most general explanation, the diamond cutting process includes several steps: planning, cleaving or sawing, bruting, polishing, and final inspection. Here is a look at what those steps all mean:

  • Cleaving or sawing – Cleaving is the separation of a piece of diamond rough into separate pieces, to be finished as separate gems. Sawing is the use of a diamond saw or laser to cut the diamond rough into separate pieces.
  • Bruting - the process whereby two diamonds are set onto spinning axles turning in opposite directions, which are then set to grind against each other to shape each diamond into a round shape. This can also be known as girdling.
  • Polishing - the name given to process whereby the facets are cut onto the diamond and final polishing is performed. This step gives the diamond its brilliant sparkle that we know so well.
  • Final inspection – the final stage of diamond cutting involves thoroughly cleaning the diamond in acids, and examining the diamond to see whether it meets the quality standards of the manufacturer.

You want to get one of these. These are technically for cream, but I'm sure they'd work for jam.
