“Larry”?

“Larry”? January 17, 2013

Mike Flynn, finger ever on the pulse of ADVANCEMENTS INNNNN SCIENNNNNNCCCCCE! notes:

Scientists Create Projectile Vomiting Robot Named Vomiting Larry

What?  “Larry“? Sigh.  This is exactly the problem with the Two Cultures never talking to each other.  Never send a tin-eared guy in a lab coat to do the work of us sensitive onomatopoetic literary artist types with serious English BA cred.  Why?  For the same reason you don’t want some buttercup twirling hippy spewing his Feelings all over your statistical analysis of salinity levels in the Atlantic.

“Larry”.  Humpf.  Clearly a projectile vomiting robot needs a name like “Hugh” or “Earl” or, better still, “Ralph” (say any of them while imitating the sound of upchucking and you’ll see what I mean).

If you need any other awesome literary expertise, let me know, science culture dudes.
