NASA Names Treadmill, Not Toilet, After Stephen Colbert

After almost getting a toilet named after him, Stephen Colbert will be surprised to know that he's getting his name on a treadmill instead. Our surprise? NASA picked the EIGHTH most popular name instead.

Really NASA? Really? We can see you not picking Serenity, even with its Firefly connotations, or Colbert, because it's Colbert, but picking something in the eighth slot in a poll? WHY EVEN HAVE A VOTE? What's wrong with you people, seriously. [SFGate]
