With Mother’s Day coming up — and if you’re looking for another great combination of Moms and Mars — Uwingu is celebrating with a campaign called Mothers on Mars (MoM). Which provides the first-ever opportunity to honor Moms on Mother’s Day by naming a feature for her on Uwingu’s new Mars map.

...

Although the crater names likely won’t officially be approved by the IAU, the names will be used on maps used by the Mars One team, the commercial company that is looking to create a human settlement on Mars by 2023.

I have 10,000-plus grains of sand. For $100.00 you can have one named for your ex-wife.

Sure! I'll also knock 10% off for each additional purchase, in case you have multiple ex's.

This makes almost as much sense as the year our liberal niece gave us a milk cow for Christmas. Of course the cow was donated to a family in Africa (maybe/maybe not) and another year she gave us a goat. :(

Is this one of those deals where you get a thank you letter — and a picture of the supposed recipients looking all hungry and everything?

All we got was a note from our liberal niece telling us a cow and then a goat had been donated to people in Africa. Knowing her she did give the money to an organization but we never got s*** from the starving folks in Africa.

At first I remember feeling kind of cheated but then quickly I said “no she was cheated”.

This is a filthy scam, and it angers me that people will be fooled by it. Uwingu has no more authority to name craters on Mars than I do.

This reminds me of that old "Star Registry" gimmick. Send them money, and they would name a star after you. This is the same sort of swindle, and some poor souls will fall for it. Uwingu should be ashamed, but I'm sure they're not.
