Better And Better

If you don't draw yours, I won't draw mine.

Take my love, take my land...

...take my space station's new tin can.

NASA's newest addition to the International Space Station will be named "Cobert," because the "Cobert Report" television comedian's fictional host asked his viewers to vote him in, in write-ins.

They wrote his name in, all right. They did it 230,539 times, which beat out the next-highest choice, which was a non-write-in choice of "Serenity."

Well, I like Serenity better, obviously, but maybe we could get something a little bigger named for her. Say, the first iteration of interplanetary cargo shuttle.

Aww, Colbert is funny. Anyhoo, Matt, if you ended up liking Firefly/Serenity, have you ever thought about catching some BattleStar Galactica (the 2004-2009 series, not the old 70s campy crap)?

I was thinking along the same lines . . . Serenity should be a cargo ship just doing the best it can.

Hammer, bite your tongue. If Slashdot or SomethingAwful hear your idea, they'll make sure it happens next time.

I just couldn't vote to place the Serenity name on an ISS pod. Glad it's still out there floating for the right vessel.

Look on the bright side and think how many times the "Cobert" get crapped and pissed on.
