If we can't have Xena, we'll keep Orcus

I'm still dissapointed that boring scientists changed the name of Planet Xena (and Gabrielle, it's moon), to Eris. Still, it's nice to see that another (likely) dwarf planet in our solar system has been named something near and dear to my heart: Orcus.

Of course, when I think of Orcus, I'm not wondering about a Roman god of the underworld. I'm thinking of the Big Lebowski himself, the abyssal demon prince of the undead in Dungeons and Dragons.

Yeah. I'm a geek. Sue me.
