Stellar Comment from Reddit

One begins to feel a proprietary interest in stars and heavenly bodies one puts in one’s books. To me, for example, Iota Draconis has a very special place in my heart, because I did research on it, and set a scene there, and likewise for Eta Carinae in the Homounculus Nebula.

However, I have never taken it to this extreme. I found this because I was looking up the star in question, one of the largest known:

I sexually Identify as WOH G64, an M4 class star roughly 163,000 light years from earth. Ever since I was a boy I dreamed of undergoing stellar nucelosynthesis. People say to me that a person being a giant burning ball of plasma is Impossible and I’m f**king retarded but I don’t care, You can’t even look at me without eye damage. I’m having doctors inject me with 1.989 × 1027 tons of helium gas to become closer to my true form. From now on I want you guys to call me ” Stellar Object J04551048-6820298″ and respect my right to fuse large quantities of hydrogen into helium. If you can’t accept me you’re a stellerphobe and need to check your cosmic privilege. Thank you for being so understanding.

Technically, his name is 2MASS J04551048-6820298. It is found in the Tarantula Nebula in the Greater Magellanic Cloud.
