+1σ is between normal and super, right? Plussigma is not a bad choice for a word you don't really need anyway.

You can call it the "quite larger moon" and "betterman".

Well, you don't need to see the picture to get the joke: Moon Unit is well enough known as the name of Zappa's daughter, so I kind of assumed that the picture was of her (and that my phone was misbehaving). (Also, you can copy the URL and open it in another tab.)

Exactly what I did, although I was hoping that the picture would be an Austin Powers reference, hence my response.
