Replace Star Dust with Cheeto Dust in This Apollo 11 Sweat Suit

You want to be an astronaut. If you don’t still admit that to yourself, you should realize that you did when you were a kid, until the stupid, adult ideas of practicality and “being reasonable” infiltrated your brain. You still want to be an astronaut. Sadly, your opportunity to get into a space suit has probably sailed on by by now, but this might be the next best thing.

It’s a little pricey at $139, and some commenters say that the seller wants $85 to ship this, because they presumably swapped out the weights of the sweatsuit and Armstrong’s actual space suit when calculating that. Seriously, is it dropped off by a Saturn V? Or maybe by Armstrong himself? Does it come in a box made out of actual Apollo capsule scraps? Or is it just a ripoff?

That said, it’s still cool, and when the seller realizes that none are moving because this shipping cost is absolutely stupid.
