FW: What you get when you let the internet decide

From a friend:

"Shackleton. Endeavour. Falcon. These are just some of the names suggested for the UK's next world-class polar research ship as part of a campaign launched today for the public to put forward names for the state-of-the-art vessel to be built in the North West of England."
   - National Environmental Research Council (UK) website

 When the National Environmental Research Council (UK) asked the internet to name the new ship, the humorous suggestion from a former BBC employee of "R.R.S. Boaty McBoatface" has become the front-runner for the vessel's name.

(You can tell it's the UK & not the US because the front running name isn't obscene...)
