Re: At the risk of sounding indelicate.....

I have to ask the question most often asked of astronauts: How do you "go" out there? I'm still pretty new to this venture but have found myself quite far out from an easy landfall and really needing to pee. I try to keep well hydrated but it seems that I am not always exhaling or sweating off as much as water as I drink, and it has to go somewhere! What ideas and strategies do you all have to take care of this issue? Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks for your candid responses. :-)
