the sky high are human, too.

In the latest edition of people doing batshit crazy things, in comes NASA astronaut Lisa Marie Nowak, arrested and charged with attempted murder and kidnapping for planning to off a competitor for a male astronaut's affections. The best crack I've read on this so far: "At least she's used to wearing orange suits."

The worst part:

Nowak raced from Houston to Orlando wearing diapers in the car so she wouldn’t have to stop to go to the bathroom, authorities said. Astronauts wear diapers during launch and re-entry.

Very nice. If you're going to do that on a road trip, I advise you make that trip by yourself, and keep the windows rolled down.

And even with all that craziness and those weapons, she couldn't knock off the Penn State grad. w00t.

A small victory for the Nittany Lion faithful -- you need those as often as they come nowadays, no?
