Marvin Comments: Lesson learned. Never space walk in your evening gown.

Actually, that cover IS a classical work of art!I would touch it without protective gloves.I've seen worse. Far, far, worse.Interesting, but I would still read it in public.Middlng: Neither awful nor awfully goodWould not like to be seen reading that!Awful... just awful...That belongs in a gold-lame picture frame!Gah... my eyes are burning!

    Red nail polish with a yellow dress. Chaos.

    In space, no one can hear you being a Karen.

    Zero atmosphere, schmero atmosphere; Her corset’s laced so tight it’s not like she was doing a whole lot of breathing anyway.

  5. Ryan Says:

    Those are some crazy long thighs.

  6. Tor Mented Says:

    A strapless gown makes perfect sense in zero-g.

    We have here another victim whose hand is afflicted with Pasta Strainer Syndrome.

    Wow, looks like Ralph Kramden finally did it.

    Judging from her expression, she may actually
    enjoy plummeting through empty space.

    You know, this reminds me of a short story by Lafferty, in which a demented inventor uses his “gravity polarizer” on business men who won’t fund his research – reversing their gravitation polarity, so they essentially fall _up_ into space. Perhaps he’s moved on to women who won’t give him the time of day.

    @JP (8)—GSS! 😉

    She looks pretty good for a quick-frozen corpse.

    Points to the artist for making her hair, bewbs, and gown look like they’re floating, I guess?

    @fred: Maybe that was her crime. Her lipstick and polish match fine, but don’t go with that dress. A 50’s lady wouldn’t be caught dead with that combo, yet here she is.

    @ARY: GSS! Changed my mind, that’s why she’s been tossed out there. The neighbors had enough.

    @Lillie: One of those strapless bra and girdle combos that go all the way down. A Merry Widow. I had to wear one of those once as a bridesmaid. I weighed right at 100 lbs. at the time. (The bride apologized after the divorce. It was all a series of giant mistakes.)

    At best, she’s got a fearsome girdle on — made of course of Space Age fabric. I know the Apollo spacesuits were made by Playtex, but this isn’t the same.

    @JP: GSS.

  12. Tat Wood Says:

    @ ex-Noob: is this what Puck meant about putting a girdle around the Earth in forty minutes?

  13. Bruce A Munro Says:

    @Tat Wood: she’s too far out to have that short an orbital period. Might even be a Geosynchronous Girdle.

  14. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Bruce: GSS!

    I think that might be the edge of the Moon down in the corner of the cover, so she’s not geosynchronous either. She’s maybe going to impact the Moon, depending on her trajectory and momentum. Or go floating off forever.
