Cannot think of a name wrote:"Named it after a satirical commentator...would you like to meet him?" (if we're lucky they get satire, but they still would have a hard time understanding what's being satirized...if not, man...imagine trying to explain satire to an alien species...)

Hell, we have a hard enough time explaining it to other humans...

I second this thought.

He needs something awesome in honor of his awesomeness.

Mustang Quotes

1)You can call me Roy Mustang. Or just Lieutenant Colonel. Hell, you can call me the Flame Alchemist. Whatever you do, remember the pain.

2)Killed in Action, and promoted two ranks for it. Brigadier General Hughes. You were the guy who was supposed to work below me and to push me to the top. Then you get yourself killed and surpass me in the ranks. I don't know what's more absurd. You or the State.

In a water world, the global ocean is so deep that water at the bottom of the sea is compressed into a different form, likely ice VII (see http://www.mit.edu/people/goodmanj/mads ... .As.r.html ).

Ice VII is two phases away from Ice IX.

Ice IX is a key part of the plot in the novel Cat's Cradle.

So, I say name the new planet . . . .

VONNEGUT!

I....

...I actually kinda like that...

Me too. And it wasn't that long ago that Vonnegut died, so it's not a bad time.

"The big purple waterworld on the right"?
I don't know about you, but the prospect of meeting an alien who then reveals they are a "The Big Purple Waterworld On The Rightian" would certainly make my day.

Let the idiots call it Reach. They can't do that twice, and we'll discover better planets than this one.

those aren't halofags, those are /b/tards.
My nation is not like my nation page at all, it contradicts itself, we don't EVER eat kangaroos, that's just very sad. Also vegetarianism is compulsory yet it still says it's the nation's favourite main course and all and stuff.

Hera’s kinda taken -- see Juno (for a while considered a planet, not classified as one any more). Hence my suggestion of Oannes (I’m pretty sure it isn’t taken).

Actually, "unda" is better translated as "wave." "Aqua" is Latin for "water."
