It already has a name. "They" call our solar system "Snackstop" and the Earth "Free Range Meat".

Ignoring Sol for a sec, our Jewish star, and since Uranus is in it, how about the Urinary System?

My Underpants. So that our ambassadors to other systems will be able to say, "Greetings, my name is John and I represent the illustrious people of My Underpants..."

Or you could say stuff like,

"It's approximately 4 light years from Alpha Centauri to My Underpants." 

Or to any attractive alien species,

"You should visit My Underpants sometime."

So why do they call Waterworld "Waterworld"? Everyone already knows it's completely covered in water and that's all they've ever known it to be. Why not just call it "World"? Why the "Water"? Are you with me?

Vaneshi: log_jammin: alienated: The Sol system Our stellar system is called a solar system as the star is named Sol.

I was going to say that, but wasn't 100% sure it was correct.

Yep, 3rd planet in the Sol system, named 'Terra' (or Dirt if you prefer); which is kind of ironic they'd name their planet as such because the majority of it is water.


Well if fish ruled the world they'd call it Aqua.

Done in one.

"The Solar System consists of the Sun and its planetary system of eight planets, their moons, and other non-stellar objects."


Sh*t. Everyone! Pretend I realized where the link for TFA went to before commenting.

silly season: Uuhhh, No... This planet is has very little water compared to the mass of the planet. The water is a comparatively thin layer that covers most of the surface. Sorry about the Gizmodo link.


picturescrazy: I think It's a safe bet that the earth is not mostly water.


In this thread there will be two types people. Those that understand the joke and Babylon 5 ref and those who are... retarded.

It's blue. Our planet is blue. From space our planet is BLUE because it has large bodies of open WATER on it. But DIRT ISN'T BLUE. We named the only planet in our solar system with large bodies of open water... DIRT.

Now do you two idiots get it or should I break out the purple crayolas and change your dribble cups?

Meh, aim for Sol and just look for the only M class planet there. It's the water one called 'Dirt' by the natives. Can't miss it, sat there orbiting radiating the combined derp of it's native sentient species.

In all seriousness though, I've even heard some scientists use the designation 'M class' when talking about exoplanets. I have zero doubts that it's just to convey stuff to us uneducated Neanderthals but it's still nice they use it.
