    Astronauts gone wild?

    what is up with this story?

    Nowak sounds completely whacked and needs help and imprisonment; but if this guy was courting 2 women, is he left unscathed?

    I think HAL may have messed with her when she was at the space station last.

    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Let's not be didactic in this profession, because that is a path to disillusion and irrelevancy.

    Talk about snapping.

    To qualify as a Navy Captain (the rank), and as an astronaut think of all the screening she had to go throught.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    And the chick was married with 3 kids . I guess nobody is immune to going nuts over unrequited love.

    My favorite part was she wore a diaper on her road trip. Now that is obsession. No time to stop for a bathroom break.

    Hey, astronauts wear diapers for their status-y astronauting job and no one makes fun of them then.

    The rest -- yeesh. Let it go. If he don't want you more than her, let her have him. And, um, get a divorce honey.

    Reminds me of the Douglas Coupland novel "All Families are Psychotic". He must be getting a chuckle out of all of this.

    Olbermann did a spot on this last night. One of the guest made a comment that NASA had noted psychological problems with people who go out into space. It's an overlooked problem with space travel.

    In one word I would say obsessive. In two I'd say F*-ing stupid.

    I can't believe she drove all the way from houston to orlando.... let alone stopping so little. You'd end tried of just sitting...
