    Identity Theft... IN SPAAAAACE!!!

    https://newyork.cbslocal.com/2019/08/24/astronaut-identity-theft-in-space/
    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – A NASA astronaut who was supposed to be part of the first all-female spacewalk in history has been accused of another milestone – committing the first recorded crime in space.

    Anne McClain, a Lt. Colonel in the U.S. Army, has reportedly been accused of identity theft while on board the International Space Station.
    According to multiple reports, McClain allegedly accessed her estranged wife’s bank account in the midst of a bitter divorce between to two women.
    Summer Worden, a former Air Force intelligence officer and Kansas resident, married the astronaut in 2014.
    The New York Times reports that, even though the two married, Worden was reluctant to let McClain officially adopt her son – who was born a year before the couple met.
    The marriage eventually fell apart in 2018, as McClain reportedly sought to gain shared parenting rights over Worden’s son.
    The astronaut also took the matter to a judge, requesting the exclusive right to determine where the boy would live if Worden and McClain could not salvage their marriage.
    “I don’t understand this tactic of attacking me as Brig’s mother and being so aggressive… and demanding a legal managing custody. That to me is bizarre to me. I don’t understand who would do that to another person,” Worden said via KHOU.
    “If you claim to love this little boy, how are you going to show his mother zero respect?… Anne’s colleagues have been known to say she will kill to win, that’s how competitive she is,” the astronaut’s spouse claimed.
    After Worden asked her bank to check her recent activity, McClain’s allegedly criminal access was found out – taking place during the NASA astronaut’s six-month missing on the ISS.

    McClain nearly made history in March, when she was scheduled to be part of the first all-female spacewalk in history. The mission was canceled because the ISS did not have two properly fitting spacesuits for the women.

    LA policeman who said sniper shot him 'made it up'
    Authorities in Los Angeles say a sheriff's deputy who claimed he had been shot by a sniper actually cut two fake bullet holes in his uniform with a knife and made the whole thing up.

    Police launched a massive manhunt last Wednesday after Angel Reinosa called in to say he was pinned down by gunfire.

    "I'm taking shots from the north of the Lancaster helipad, I'm hit in the right shoulder," said a frantic Mr Reinosa.

    "My shirt's ripped to the right. I think it's from the apartment window."

    Mr Reinosa has been relieved of his duties and is facing a criminal investigation.

    "He is doing great, thankfully," Sheriff's Captain Todd Weber said at the time. "The wound was minor and he's been treated and he's doing well, in high spirits."

    The only problem was, there was no wound. Mr Reinosa has now admitted fabricating the sniper fire and using a knife to cut two fake bullet holes in the shoulder area of his shirt.

    It was not immediately clear why it took so long to notice that Mr Reinosa had not suffered any wounds.

    Nobody remembers the singer. The song remains.

    Yes. EVA suits are different than the suits they wear for launch, and are super expensive and very heavy to launch. They won't save a life - in a breach they can't be put on fast enough, if you're already in one you won't last until rescue, and with an atmosphere leak reentry wont be survivable (Soyuz 11 probably died before reentry but the condition of the craft when it was recovered made it clear if they weren't they would have been quickly).

    If you don't fit the same size suit as a sufficient number of other EVA trained astronauts, you're shit out of luck, because NASA won't buy a suit just for you that could very well be used 0-1 times in your whole career.

    Yeh. The way to save your life if you're in a space accident is not: "Put on a space suit", it's get to da choppathe rescue capsule. In the case of the ISS that's one Soyuz capsule for every three people onboard.

    Probably a few inches, since gravity is no longer weighing you down like on Earth. Heck, you're taller when you wake up than when you go to sleep for the same reason.

    NASA expects astronauts to gain between 1-3% in height. Since almost all of that height gain is from the spine decompressing I would say that the spine is expected to expand 2-5%? Which in most people is about 1-5cm.

    The ISS actually did have a second medium torso section on-board, it just needed additional time spent to get it prepped for the space walk which would have made a mess of their schedule.

    I don't know if this still happens, but in my teens I was nearly two centimeters taller in the morning. I used to have a lamp I'd hit my head on in the mornings but could fit a finger between it and my head in the evening with some wiggle room.

    I put a (pet) hedgehog in my lap once.

    It pooped for several minutes straight.

    (This was at an animal rescue; some poop is expected and I figured it'd be easier to clean up if I didn't move.)

    Probably not the case here, but, in some situations where you have an abusive parent and the step-parent isn't I could see them winning a custody battle but it'd be very, very uphill and require lots of CPS documentation (and the step-parent would have had to adopt the child too).

    I understand that adult giraffes in the wild can kick a lion's head off. The baby giraffe's kick is probably pretty strong, too. Don't think I want to see pictures of that. :X

    Yeah it's not so much giraffes specifically but just any wild animal of that size. The response of a panicking giraffe can best be described as flailing, which would be hazardous with limbs that size.

    Also if you've never been in physical contact with a large animal their muscle density can be kind of shocking.

    So, a vegan lady in Australia has been suing her neighbor for... living their life? From about 2018, Cilla Carden has been fighting noise and smells in the courtroom. She feels that the kids purposefully play basketball too loud and that the neighbors smoke cigarettes and barbecue fish just to keep her from being able to go outside. Her court case was thrown out and so was her appeal, however her neighbor has forbid his kids from playing basketball and gotten rid of their barbecue... this hasn't not satisfied her and she plans to continue to her legal fight. She feels she is just fighting for her right to live, but she is doing so by stopping others from living how they want.

    I guess the gone right is that nothing has come of it and the neighbors are at least taking her complaints into consideration. This story just sounds surreal though. Like she literally believes what they are doing is directly targeted towards her in order to keep her inside all the time. I feel for her, in a way.

    Edit: Hmmm, the Time article I read said 2017, but the direct one says late 2018. Fixing that.

    If there is loud noise outside normal hours at like 2am I would think the judge would rule differently.

    Actually used to have trouble sleeping when I moved to Kansas because i was so used to city noise.
