When your next job interview is with a company called" ISS logistique" and you heard about it long ago, yet retained the name "ISS" thanks to the space station  8)

You dream (nightmare?) that NASA has assembled the Saturn V in the Saturn V Visitor's Center and is about to launch it on the SLS mobile launcher for a special mission.  You're racing to get to KSC to view the launch, but you get stuck in a huge traffic jam on I-95 in Georgia.  Over the car radio you hear "...coming out of the built-in hold..."   "...final guidance alignment..."   "   switching to internal power...".
