I propose we call it Cope's Island

  • Why have we not named the Moon? All of Jupiter's moons have names and no one even lives out there.

  • Here's a good trivia question: Without Googling for the answer, who was Bob Dole's running mate in 1996?

  • You know what I really love? A judge with a real sense of sarcasm.

  • Don't accept marital advice from this guy.

  • Cave dwarf.

  • "We have a problem now -- one-third of the population is unable to squat."

  • I think the nation and the world are breathing a sigh of relief today.

  • Thank goodness Mary-Kate is finally going to do something with her life so that she can get out and get a decent job.

  • The most important game of Brett Favre's life.

  • I want this shirt.

    Dole ran with Kemp... our high school band had to play when he campaigned in Cincinnati. We were all excited to get out of class and go wherever it was at, but then we were bored out of our minds when we got there. I'm yawning just thinking about it again.

    The Moon's name is Luna. The sun's name is Sol

    Our moon's name is 'The Moon'. It’s a bit like the Christian god being called God and Elvis being called 'The King'.

    I'm surprised you know who the GLC are, although you do keep up with Welsh news I guess. You've listened to their music then? Downloaded off, P2P or bought the album?

    I'm waiting to see how much the shirt will cost before I decide whether I'll get one or not. I bet it will be sold to a lot more people than Newport FC have fans.

    I am a huge GLC fan. Through sheer repetition, I have got my wife saying "You knows it," about things. I downloaded all their tracks and put them on a CD -- she refuses to listen.

    Greg, isn't Luna just the name of the Roman moon goddess, rather than the actual name of the moon? To be fair, though, my editor disagrees with me on this point and insists that Luna is, indeed, the name of both.

    Greg said...

    Your editor is in fact correct. People just call it the moon. Its actually sort of a joke in space-based science fiction that every other species has a really fancy name for their primary star, home planet, and moon(s), but we have very plain names.
