Ground Control to Major Tom

If you hadn't heard, NASA is doing some renovations on the International Space Station.

And you thought you had trouble getting a repairman to show up on time at your house. Just think what a pain it is to get someone to show up in space. Just make sure you're there between 8 am and 6 pm. Unless there's traffic or a meteor shower, then all bets are off.

International space station? Yeah, I think we know who's doing all the heavy lifting on this one. How is that Jamaican Space Program coming again?

But NASA needs our help naming Node 3. You can vote for one of four names: Earthrise, Legacy, Serenity or Venture. Yeah, I know. Craptacular.

Luckily, you can also write in your own entry. Those engineer types clearly need some help. Here's what I'm going to be stuffing the ballot box with:
  • Red 5
  • Don't Trust Any Damn Dirty Apes
  • Hal, Open the Pod Bay Door
  • Attempting Re-Entry
  • NCC-1701E
  • Third Node from the Sun
  • Red Dwarf
  • Space Shittle
  • Moonraker
  • UNO (Unidentified Nodal Object)
  • Jane, Stop This Crazy Thing
  • Money Pit
  • Node Tell Motel
  • Attack of the Nodes
  • Plan Node from Outer Space

Yes, you can tell I've seen way too many Sci-fi movies.

And this post was a lot funnier in concept than it was in practice. Sorry, kids. That'll teach me not to drink and post.
