The residents on Kepler 22-b are going "What's up with these Earthlings thinking they can decide the name of our planet?"

This basically, let's rule out the fact there isn't sentient life on Kepler 22-b first or that it doesn't belong to some alien empire or some shit ya know before acting like we have the right to name anything not in our solar system.

...EWWW!! And besides, if you're going to crib Joss Whedon movie lines, at least pick Marvel or Firefly ones, they're cooler.

And then there's the issue of worrying whether someone was constantly going to blow up a Planet Namek.

There's really no way to do that with current technology. And it's not like we're going to travel there anyway.

Oh man. When I first saw this news I was wondering if this was a joke, but it turns out it isn't. That's so cool since I love Dragon Ball

I say go for it. it's better than kepler 22-b or whatever. That's just so bland so we should definitely give it a real name.

So why not Namek?
