It isn't one of the big manufacturer's who make the spacesuits.
It is the girdle maker, Playtex, who famously sold the Cross Your Heart bra.

Remember, an ecosystem that developed something that devastatingly beautiful, also produced the Kardashians. :(

Seeing Keeping Up With the Kardashians is really what made Thanos want to wipe out half of all life in the universe

If a hole opened up and swallowed that whole useless family en masse, the world would have no f*cks to give

And this list should make him want to wipe out the rest:

I've heard of none of those people (thank Gawd), except Markiplier and PewDiePie. I can't stand PewDiePie, but Markiplier is decent. He does a lot of charity work and seems fairly genuine.

I thought Thanos WAS a Kardashian.  :o   Wasn't he the one that got OJ off by Time-Traveling back to fix the gloves so they wouldn't fit?
