How about an un-official title contest? I am very sure it will never be used, but it could be fun for us to make up creative titles.

Hey who knows, maybe it will be used.... :wink: :wink:


To start us off:

"Bad Everything"
"Just plain Bad"
"Bad things you hear on the net"
"Bad to the Core...."
(you see a common theme here? :-) )
"Stuff so Bad even a black hole won't touch them".
"Bad movies, T.V., and everything else you thought you knew was right about astronomy."

We should like to point out that this is from (perhaps) the funniest episode ever of The Mary Tyler Moore Show. I believe it was Chuckles the Clown who had died, and this was his catch-phrase (the English version). The show envolved most of the cast making jokes about how he died (IIRC he was dressed as a peanut and been squeezed to death by an elephant), and Mary being apalled at them. I remember laughing so much I cried. It's starting to bring tears to my eyes even now. :lol:

It'd be cool because then when he did the third book, he could call it the same thing as the first ones. That way, you could just put a number on the spine and it'd be Bad Astronomy I, II, and III. Then he could publish them all at the same time in one big BA book! He could call it The Big Bad Book!

I know, it already has a title, I'll just throw in Bad Astronomy II : Inconceivably Bad Astronomy

Do we even know it's about astronomy? I thought it was going to be called Bad Medicine? Or have I missed that one?

Never mind what it's called. When can we read it?

Well...if the next book already has a title, we can guess at the chapter titles.

Chapter 1: Lenin on the Shower Curtain

Chapter 2: Why you Shouldn't Believe Little Old Ladies from Wisconsin

Chapter 3: No. NASA does not pay debunkers
