Okay, this is cool. NASA's new "Face in Space" program (I guess we all know that NASA hasn't got many poets on their payroll) allows you to upload a digital photo of yourself along with your name to their collection site. Then they'll take the collected photos and names and carry 'em into space on one of the last two Space Shuttle flights.
Those who hate how they look in photos can simply submit their names.
This is really a splendid proof of exactly how primitive a species the human race is because it's a classic example of sympathetic magic. Your name gets to leave the planet and therefore in some rarefied sense you do too? Man, you don't get much more gullible than that.
I've already chosen which photo I'm going to send. It's a shot that the immortal Kyle Cassidy took of Marianne and me with our cat Shadowfax. Forget Disneyland -- I'm going into Earth orbit!
You can read all about the program in the Christian Science Monitor article.
Or just grab a digital photo and go straight to the site itself.
