Who named Earth? It may be something we've all learned in school but for most of us, it's likely information we all have filed away as... not vital information. Information that of course becomes fascinating late in life. Who got to have that honor and why? And could they have some up with something far more interesting? Like Thomas.

Redditor u/ObserverOfReddit wanted to hear about some possible options besides "Earth" by asking.... If you had to rename Earth, what would you name it?


Balls.

Sphere. just to screw with every flat Earther there is. NitroTheManiac

I'd go with Cosmic Disc, that would f**k with a flat Earther much, much more. New Year's Eve could be called the Cosmic Disco. thesmutorcs

Meh. 

Erf. Kennymo95

When the aliens come, and they will, we just say "Welcome to Erf." CrackerJackBunny

And Goofy?

Pluto, so it can be a planet again. That'll show 'em.

That'll show all of 'em... Elevenst

You heard about Pluto? That's messed up, right? inspectorseantime

Branded. 

Sponsored by Colgate. Because when we colonize the solar system and people from Venus go on a space tour, the tourist can say "That is Sponsored By Colgate, our origin planet" and people will remember to brush their teeth before they go to bed. YusTeez

People hard up for cash will do anything. But what about the other way around?

Everyone talks about how the 20s are supposed to be the time of our lives. And that's largely true. But it's not all wine and roses.

Don't disturb my beauty sleep! That's the one rule I have––and thankfully I live alone, so there isn't anyone to bother me, which is fabulous. But that doesn't mean I'm immune to getting woken up in the middle of the night. The worst way I can think of off the top of my head? The time a drunk guy wandered into my friend's yard and started banging on the window while I was trying to sleep. It was 3 a.m. The incident also gave me the fright of my life!

Redditor u/CatVideoFest wanted to discuss the mixing of certain ingredients that don't leave the best taste in one's mouth by asking:
