Astronaut Goes Nuts

Has everyone heard about this Astronaut found in Florida who went there to kill a woman. Seems like the other girl was involved with a guy she was interested in. All 3 were astronauts and I think all married to other people.

Oh my…

Must be space fever…

Plenty of crazy to go around out there…

if not for the fact that she is a astronaut, threfore supposedly a very intelligent and rational person, what she did is not much crazier than any other stalker that has been in the news in the last ten years.

Just because you’re a rocket scientist doesn’t mean you can’t turn trailer park crazy.

I’m going to go ahead and take offense at that since I have absolutely nothing better to do with my time. I have lived in many a trailer park, and I think it’s high time to change the paradigm here before things get out of hand. From now on, everyone who totally loses it and goes completely fuckwild should be referred to as having gone “Astronuts”.
Or “iNASAne.”
That is all.

My mother was to drunk to be an astronuat.

Damn, she was on a mission and not of the space variety wearing diapers so as not to have to stop to use the restroom during her drive!

That “Depends” does it not?

Why does it seem all the crazy stuff happens in Florida?

Don’t the weed out the crazies with psych exams or something?

She had a 1,000 mile drive to cool off… I guess I would be pretty upset if sat in my own piss for that long too.

Gross/wierd thing is when they searched her car they found diapers…so she musta been thinking that she might think it out rationally if she were to stop so brought the diapers along

While I find the story somewhat humorous, I also think it’s kind of a shame that all that talent and knowledge has gone down the tube. Obviously a crazy lady. Can’t imagine what her three kids are thinking right now.

I just remember growing up in the late 60’s and early 70’s and Astronauts were just larger then life back then.

When we were kids they were something you wanted to be when you grew up. Just couldn’t picture Neil Armstrong or John Glenn being invovled in something like this. Different time…

First we let them vote, then we let them drive, now they can be astronauts.

God help us if Hillary gets elected president and gets control nukes.

Was she in the military? I’d think the Navy or Air Force would weed her out pretty quickly.

I just read that she’s a Navy Captain. Gotta learn to read the links first…!

A HIGHLY accomplished one at that!

Over 200 carrier landings, attended TOPGUN, experience on over 50 types of aircraft, and a former test pilot.

I think that was the guy she was obsessed with?

At least the diaper industry got a good plug out of all this.

Pampers, the only diaper with a 900 mile garantee.

Huggies, proud sponser of NASA.

I can see the commercial now. A woman driving her convertable cross-country, with the radio up loud singing " I went from Phoenix Arizona all the way to Tacoma, Philadelphia Atlanta LA…" Then the camara pans to the back seat and zooms in on a box of depends. Of course the driver would have to look like the crazy astro.
