Hello again iiwiiers
Four days ago I spoke of the ISS doing brain experiments with the new Columbus module to find out whether space makes you mad - well maybe they're starting straight away. The installation of Columbus is now going to be on Monday instead of Sunday, due to a 'crew health issue' - Hans Schlagel is 'unwell', has been excused his spacewalk and someone else is going to do it instead. So maybe he's gone mad because of space, perhaps they made him mad for the experiments and overdid it. There are other possibilities of course, the announcement was just after docking, perhaps Hans was straight into the toilet when they got into the ISS and his crack pipe set the smoke alarm off, perhaps he's got the shits, perhaps he's dead, perhaps he's demanding more money, perhaps he's just scared, but I don't think so - they're not what I predicted. Anyhow, seeing as how they're being so vague now it better be something good. The shuttle docked with a 'pressurised mating adapter' - maybe he burst into tears saying 'it's no good, pressure makes it worse, I'm just not in the mood, I'm under a lot of stress at work...' Maybe it's a scam, they're all strict Christians and came up with a plan to get Sunday off. They probably put something in his space-drink. Poor Hans, it's a disgrace. Shouldn't be allowed. Could it be anything to do with the 75th anniversary of the first singing telegram tomorrow (10 February)? I can't see how - damn, they're sneaky. But I'll work it out, you'll see.
See you around
