    Strange that the Navy has not stepped in to end the prosecution. Astronaut training is inherently dangerous and stress levels can be discovered, as this case reveals, to be too high without 24/7/365 SuperVision. This new knowledge has closed that Systems Fail and thus are there no individual cases to answer.

    Protagonist?

    She was telling a story?

    Sure you didn't mean antagonist?

    Anyway, where can I get space knickers?

    Meanwhile...

    ... that pesky place called outer space is gridlocked with Ladas, Tatas, and Dadis. A universe packed bumper to bumper with nappied space-o-nauts and the only one getting shivved is NASA.

    I put it to everyone that a nutty 'naut is nowt at altitude nought.

    One, amanfromMars post that is actually *comprehensible*? And two, that sub-heading sounds like a show from TvGoHome!

    Eh? 24/7/365?

    24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 weeks in a...

    I wish I had SuperVision.

    Oh, it's amanfromMars. Must check the author before trying to undestand... :)

    (Why won't the comment accept "24/7/365?" as a title? It comes back with "A title is required")

    pedantry

    "antagonist", not protagonist. Oh dear, being precise, that must make me a sad inadequate.

    a very minor nit...

    ...which is that, according to my old high school literature teacher, Nowak's rival for said space stud muffin's affections would actually be an _antagonist_. Iirc, your _protagonist_ would be the "hero" -- but not necessarily a "good" or "heroic" -- character in your story.

    That is all. (that one, there, with the reading glasses in the front pocket, thanks)

    Oh, and I almost forgot...

    Why is this under "space"?

    Shouldn't it be under "crime"? Or, perhaps, "biology"?

    Oh, alright...
