    IIf they used all the blankets and hammocks, I wonder how they slept.

    Since 90% of the earth’s gravity reaches the astronauts, I wonder if that means there’s no need for artificial gravity.

    I don’t know how heavy the heaviest person in history was; but if a human weighed as much as that alligator, he wouldn’t be able to get near it. I don’t know how much Neanderthals weighed though.

    Take care and God bless.

    “…took her…photos with a 1,000 pound alligator.”?? Wouldn’t a CAMERA be more effective?!?

    If it weren’t for gravity “reaching” the space station, it would not be in orbit.

    Jana Deleon wrote a book called “Later Gator” and it is about an elderly woman in Louisiana that befriended a gator to save him from poachers. It is part of a comedy series of books that are hilarious. But this was my favorite. Picture a 10 foot gator with a pink collar and leash being walked down Main Street in a small Louisiana town. I laughed til I cried. Please look up the “Miss Fortune” series.First book is “Louisiana Longshot”.

    Hmmm. Last I heard an aircraft with no engines running is in a stall. A stall means—aircraft stops flying. Aircrafts stops flying means aircrafts drops from sky. Maybe they set out extra wings on that sucker so it would ‘glide’.

    And even though Noland had signed up for the Master’s degree program, she never showed up for the first classes…

    Speaking of alligators reminds me of a funny story. Years ago, a friend went to an alligator farm here in Colorado. They had a small alligator that visitors could hold and have a picture taken. A rude lady cut in line in front of him. Though this annoyed him, he remained a gentleman and didn’t say anything to her. As soon as the handler handed the alligator to her, it pooped all over her clothes! She got her just reward!
