Phil Plait (of the Bad Astronomy blog) is getting an asteroid named after him. I’m so jealous I think my head might just explode. Congratulations, Phil, you lousy bastard.
Note to astronomers: if you happen to have any unnamed asteroids lying around you want to name after me, you just let me know. I don’t want to want to say I’ll bribe you — that would be wrong – but, you know. I’ve named characters after astronomers before. I’m just saying.
