Greetings:

For the umpteenth time, I just heard one of those idiotic commercials for a company offering to register a star name for the person of your choice - for a fee. They claim to send you a certificate with your star coordinates, and to enter that name and star in the copyright office.

What a crock of garbage! I can't believe what these crooks get away with. :smt067

The International Astronomical Union (IAU), which actually has responsibility for cataloging and naming stars, says the entire system is bogus. (click banner)

I've heard those ads and thought the exact same thing - thery're a freaking ripoff. I wonder how they can get away with it. It's like selling parcels of land on the Moon or Mars.

I guess it's like old PT Barnum (or somebody) said... there's a fool born every minute. :jocolor:
