Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: The idea of a stranded astronaut as the object of a Nigerian scam is hilarious--particularly the part where he complains about it. In fact, the log entries are the best part of this story.

Con: It's not a real story, although it probably doesn't need to be. The science leaves a lot to be desired, and it's really only funny in two or three places.
