    next book: un-official title contest...

    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."

    But that'd need there to have been more than one book already. Otherwise you've got an omnibus of one. Reminds me of that Dilbert where Dogbert is selling the Deluxe Edition of the Dilbert in the Bath video.

    A Brief History of Bad Astronomy.

    More (sigh) Bad Astronomy.

    Hopelessly Bad Astronomy.

    So Bad it ain't even Astronomy.

    Bad Astronomy^2.

    People that should never be allowed to have kids - A chronology of really, really painfully Bad Astronomy and the nutcases that profess it.

    Ok, I'll stop with that last one before I go off the deep end ... perhaps I'm too late.

    BABB Astronomy.

    Could be a compendium of the collective knowledge of the board!

    [added] Of course it would be a BIG TIME in-joke....

    Don't give it a title. It'll become known as "The Astronomy Book". Think about it. THE astronomy book. Pretty cool, eh?

    My latin is pretty week The Supreme Canuck. The closest I can come up with for a translation of your sig "Minutus cantorum, minutus balorum, minutus carborata descendum pantorum." is:
    Tiny priest, tiny balrog, tiny carburator descends my pants.

    I have a funny feeling that's wrong though.

    First word, third word and last three words are pretty dang close! I won't tell you what it means, though. It takes the fun out of it. :wink:

    very funny indeed but to be honest I prefer my translation. You just can't beat a priest, a balrog, and a carburator descending your pants. :wink:

    BigJim: Glaaarrrrrrrrrrrrggggggh!!!! You had to tell them didn't you?!? I mean - oh well. No harm done. It really isn't a good sig if nobody understands it, is it? :wink:

    I suppose it would have happened sooner or later anyway...

    CthulhuBob: A priest, a Balrog and a carburetor... reminds me of a joke... well not really, but I can see potential!
