back to article Nowak astronaut romanta-scuffle affair: New evidence

    Her lawyer says she kept used nappies in the car for a year and a half?

    Bollocks, the nappies are the star of the story here.

    what's more disgusting. Wearing nappies on a 1k miles journey or keeping used once in a car for ages. That's pathetic either way and should be punished on it's own ground.

    Smear campaign?

    Why would the length of time nappies were in her car be relevant to anything except the valets?

    Perhaps her rival asked for the pepper-spray instead?

    I don't get this

    I don't understand US law... Defence is not arguing that Nowak did not use the pepper spray, but is instead arguing that *because she missed*, no mention of the pepper spray should be made?

    <shakes head> As far as I'm concerned, *intent* is the big issue - not whether or not she was successful.

    Am suprised that the fecal matter was DNA tested

    as this tends to sort out whether its human or bull
