For all the obvious reasons a lot of care had gone into the design and equipping of the international space station. After all, having Americans and Chinese share such a small space for so long meant the potential for tension could be high.
Overall the makers had got it right, what with superb living quarters, Pilates room, billiard table, and jacuzzi. The kitchen had all the latest gear: microwave, eye-level oven, six-slice toaster, and juice maker.
The only accessory that didn’t function well was the pasta/noodle maker.
Fortunately that was an Italian brand so fisticuffs were avoided.
