Astronaughties

Yikes! PR nightmare for NASA. You don't expect this sort of stuff from the best and brightest, but I guess NASA is no different than Wal-Mart.

I am Mike Adams. I'm am a badass. Jack Bauer is a little girl next to me.The NASA logo has remained unchanged since it was first designed by an employee in 1959. Maybe today is a good day to change it.

"In my day, we didn't have "mission specialists." We just got into dangerous experimental aircraft and flew until we died. These astronauts today, they have it too easy. Coed space flights, nice meals, big pay. And if some crazy spacechick came huntin' down the other astrobabe I was bangin', drivin' half-way across the country in diapers to tie her up, man...I gotta think about that one. Weird."

  • As bad as it sounds, I hafta think NASA must have some REALLY good flacks on their payroll to keep shit out of the headlines for so long.

    Honestly, the fucking Bengals have a rap sheet by the 3rd pre-season game. I can't recall any astronaut off-the-field problems since the program began.

  • Another great lead on the 6:00 evening news up here:

    "How could this astronaut fall so far?"

  • In the last 24 hours I've seen "Lust in Space," and "The Wrong Stuff."

  • It introduced the term "space diapers" into the household terminology, so we view it as a plus:

    "Come on honey, we're gonna be late. Put on your space diapers and let's take off."

    But honestly, you can't help but worry about the families. I wouldn't want to be one of her kids in school today.Come to think of it, I wouldn't want to be anybody in this thing.

  • Worst of all, I'd hate to be Richard Nowak, who, according to the Washington Post, works in Mission Control in Houston. Neighbors say they would hear fights of the dish-throwing variety. Capt. Nowak states in an interview with Ladies Home Journal that the job requires much time away from her famiily, but that her husband is "very supportive."

    I'm now sickened by my own fascination with this tawdry tale, but it's a drama unfolding that could not have been scripted better by the writers of 24.

    Wait, that's not true. Capt. Nowak would've caught her victim and tortured the hell out of her on 24.

  • I agree with your 24/torture analysis, but the event is true to 24 in that she never went to the bathroom, except in her pants. 'Cause of the space diapers.
