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.

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

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
