Bloody Women Drivers

They’ve done it again. Made their mark on the NASA’s space program. Last time a woman driver was allowed to drive the space shuttle she crashed it.

Now, due for the first takeoff since the Columbia tragedy the woman driver forgot to put enough fuel in. Five hours before takeoff the seven astronauts suited up and made their way to the orbiter where they had to climb into it pretty much upside down. Obviously not an easy task as they don’t wish to damage the controls and those suits don’t allow for great mobility. So, there they are. Strapped into their seats and the pilot notices that a fuel gauge is showing low fuel. She forgot to fill the space shuttle up and the whole launch has been delayed, possibly until September. Tsk, tsk, tsk.

Perhaps NASA is waiting for the price of oil to decrease.
