Hey, NASA is getting into the + game. One of the recently announced space probes to Venus is DAVINCI+. Don't bother with what the acronym is; it's one of those tortured bacronyms that far too many space probes have these days. Why they stuck the + on the end is not obvious.

Please forgive my tangent.

"[T]ortured bacronym" brings to mind the most tortured of all: USAPATRIOT Act, a true monstrosity in name and in fact.
