Top Gun Feud: Screen Rant says celebrity physicist Neil deGrasse Tyson recently watched "Top Gun: Maverick" and then trashed Tom Cruise when he tweeted, ''Late to the party here, but In this year’s @TopGunMovie, @TomCruise’s character Maverick ejects from a hypersonic plane at Mach 10.5, before it crashed. He survived with no injuries. At that air speed, his body would splatter like a chainmail glove swatting a worm. Just sayin’. When Maverick ejected at Mach 10.5, he was going 7,000 mph, giving him 400 million joules of kinetic energy — the explosive power of 100 kg of TNT. A situation that human physiology is not designed to survive. So, no. Maverick does not walk away from this. He be dead. Very dead.''
The Wrap says astronaut Scott Kelly disagreed with Neil and tweeted, ''Depends on his altitude. I was going Mach 25 when I left the ISS on a spacewalk and that was just fine. To be completely clear. At the altitude at which a Mach 10 hypersonic aircraft would be flying, the ejection would be very survivable, the reentry into the atmosphere in just a pressure suit, not so much.''

My friends and family think I'm crazy because I want to send an invoice to another mother in the neighborhood. Her kid is always at my house eating out of my refrigerator without permission. Every time I turn around, it seems he is back in the fridge munching away. I've told him several times not to do it. My friends say I'm being a stick-in-the-mud and should be grateful all of the kids in the neighborhood want to come to my house. I barely make ends meet as a single mother. I'm dead serious about sending the invoice. What do you think? Am I wrong if I do? Shouldn't other parents chip in?
