Astro-NUTZ: Imagine if she would have used weapons that could kill

I think this story is pretty crazy. People will go to extremes over their "less than romantic" relationships (you'll understand this in a second). Reminds me of the Lucy Pearl song, "Don't Mess With My Man". Take a listen:

"A NASA astronaut charged with attempting to kidnap a romantic rival in a love triangle with another astronaut was allowed to go free on bail Tuesday on the condition that she not contact the alleged victim."

"Lisa Marie Nowak drove more than 12 hours from Texas to meet the 1 a.m. flight of a younger woman who had also been seeing the astronaut Nowak pined for...Nowak -- who was a mission specialist on a Space Shuttle Discovery flight last summer -- was wearing a trench coat and wig and had a knife, BB pistol, and latex gloves in her car, reports show. They also found diapers, which Nowak said she used so she wouldn't have to stop on the 1,000-mile drive. Reports show that after U.S. Air Force Capt. Colleen Shipman's flight arrived, Nowak followed her to the airport's Blue Lot for long-term parking, tried to get into Shipman's car and then doused her with pepper spray."

She was charged with:
  • attempted kidnapping
  • battery
  • attempted vehicle burglary with battery
This is CRAZY! On top of all that, she categorized her relationship with this man as "more than a working relationship but less than a romantic relationship." All that driving, the wound-but-not-kill weaponry, and you weren't even romantic with this guy? Shame. That's a lot of effort.

The BB pistol was pretty funny to read along with the diapers, but she also had "A steel mallet, several feet of rubber tubing and hand-written directions to Shipman's home."

You gotta read the full story here. Seriously, this is like the stuff that television writers make up. I bet this will be on Law & Order SVU soon.

By the way, she reminds me of the runaway bride a little...

Don't mess with her man!
