Vagina-Shaped Rockets Not Aerodynamically Efficient, Study Says
November 9, 2021
SpaceInquirer
FLORIDA – As per a recent law passed by the Congress to increase equality in the launcher industry—known to be almost literally phallocentric—a team of researchers from the State University of Florida worked in a project where they designed a rocket following the shape of a vagina. Tests in a wind tunnel proved to be disappointing, according to a statement released by the head of the Aerodynamics and Computational Fluid Laboratory at the SUF, Dr. Patricia Turner: “Vaginas are not as pointy, which creates a prohibitively high amount of drag and even a newly discovered effect called labia-flutter, making the flight highly unstable; more data needs to be collected”. Sources related to the matter estimate that with more advanced flight control technology, a vagina-shaped spaceship might be possible in no less than 10 or 15 years.

Elderly convicted serial killer arrested after headless body with no limbs found in trash

An 83-year-old serial killer who spent over 50 years in prison was arrested in connection to the murder of another woman whose body was found missing a head, arms and legs, stuffed inside a garbage bag on a street in Brooklyn.

Harvey Marcelin was charged with concealing a human corpse after she was caught on surveillance video dumping the torso law enforcement officials found near her apartment, according to The New York Post.

Marcelin, who is a transgender woman, spent over 50 years in state prison on murder and manslaughter convictions that date back to 1963. She has killed two women with whom she had dated and lived with. She was on supervised parole, according to a NY State database.

The dismembered woman was identified as 68-year-old Susan Layden, who was living in an LGBTQ shelter in the Clinton Hill area of Brooklyn at the time of her death, according to NBC New York.

JetBlue passengers left waiting on plane after airport crew leaves for night
WORCESTER, Mass. —
Dozens of JetBlue passengers spent time sitting on an idle plane on the tarmac at a Massachusetts airport Monday night after staff left for the night.
The flight records show the plane landed at the small airport outside the city of Worcester around 12:15 a.m. but did not actually park at the gate until after 1 a.m.

"It was silence, then the pilot said, 'I have something embarrassing to tell you guys — there is nobody to get you off the flight,'" Sabrina Ruelle told sister station WCVB on Tuesday. "They had no staff available to get us off the airplane!"

Police showed up to help assist with the situation.

"The state police were there and they were going to have to evacuate us, but then they got a hold of a JetBlue manager and had to have him drive from his house to the airport to let us off the airplane," Ruelle said.

Sad
A 13-year-old was at the wheel of the pickup truck that swerved in front of a van carrying the University of the Southwest's men's and women's golf teams, killing nine people, including the underage driver, according to the National Transportation Safety Board.


NTSB Vice Chairman Bruce Landsberg told reporters that the Dodge 2500 Ram pickup truck driven by the teen was traveling northbound near Midland, Texas, on Tuesday night when it crossed into the southbound lane and collided head on with the 17-seat passenger van carrying the golf teams. The truck's left front tire was a spare that failed and caused the vehicle to pull hard left and cross into the opposing lane, according to the NTSB.

In addition to the 13-year-old, whose name was not released, a 38-year-old man, Henrich Siemens, was in the Dodge pickup. Both were killed, as well as the coach, Tyler James, and six golfers in the passenger van.

Please, no. Our wives would come out of the OR with breasts (and lips) 3x their normal size and tramp stamps.

I have noticed when I bike that I bike faster to heavy metal, but if a ballad comes on I do go slower.
