I love that even if Colbert wins, odds are NASA will just enact their "We're just taking this into consideration, but we're going to name it X instead" clause.

I doubt that's the only reason - that may be the reason for your friends telling you to vote for it, but I suspect part of the reason it's winning by such a large reason is because the other names actually suck.

1) It's just the advertising contract that Hulu (and other sites) have. Don't blame them, blame... um... basic tenets of economics.Matsi wrote:I don't get it. Why only allow IP addresses from inside the USA? That's just an incentive for me to never visit hulu.com again.Yeah, me too. Not only would Serenity have been way cooler, it also would have been more appropriate and it fits better with the names of the existing modules. Usually when he does something like this i think it's great fun, but now I'm not so sure anymore. I just hope NASA decides to go with Serenity after allApemeat wrote:Wow.

2) Were you mad at NASA when they had the significantly less cool name of "Node3"? Are you mad at every space name you find less appealing than Serenity? And are you now mad at democracy?

That's a terrible comparison. It's more like voting for the most popular girl in your school, and then another school, with a bigger population comes in and uses the write in to vote for the most popular person at their school.MrGee wrote:Obviously NASA has forgotten to convert the vote total from English to metric.
The success of "Colbert" reminds me of eighth grade, when we voted a girl who never talked to anybody as "most popular".
