Seriously, Britain?

Have you even seen Terminator?

From the BBC:

The launch of the British military’s Skynet 5 satellite has been postponed due to a last-minute technical glitch.

The delay was ordered when a fault was found in the “deluge” system that sprays water across the launch pad to keep it cool as the rocket lifts off.

The Skynet spacecraft will deliver secure, high-bandwidth communications for UK and “friendly” forces.

Is it really necessary to name your satellite after the artificial intelligence satellite system Skynet that kills us all in the Terminator films?

Of all possible combinations of words, there’s not one better pairing that you could think of?

Do you think that shit’s funny?
