In NHL hockey, if a player hits another with his stick, it's called "high sticking." If the offending player draws blood, it's a four-minute penalty. No blood, only a two-minute penalty.
It's considered impolite to speak with another astronaut who's upside down or at a different angle while in zero gravity.
