The Good, The Bad, & The Truth

Signal from Mars is restored.
A satellite radio that carries signals and commands to the Mars Phoenix lander restarted last night, ending a one-day delay in the robotic explorer’s deployment on the Martian surface.

Bad: Space Station Inconvenienced As Toilet Fails. Nasa has confirmed that the toilet on the International Space Station has failed, leaving astronauts in an urgent need for spare parts. The problem lies with the fan that draws liquids into the waste chamber prior to being ejected to burn up in the atmosphere. At the moment solids can be handled by the Russian-made toilet, but liquid disposal is proving impossible.

Truth: New Yorkers hump like rabbits. ...during the course of 94 episodes and six seasons, the women of "Sex and the City" hit the sheets with a combined total of 94 men and one woman... were the "Sex and the City" women oversexed? Definitely - compared to the average American woman, who has nine sex partners in a lifetime, according to a survey by the Durex brand of condoms. But compared to the average New Yorker, they were right on target.
