Running .sh script by double clicking?

If I put a script (we'll just call it for now) on my desktop, how can I make it so that it runs in a terminal when I double click it?
Currently what happens is it's viewed with a text editor, and i'd like it to run when I double click it, instead of being viewed with an editor.
I'm thinking i'd need to make it a symbolic link and put the file in a *bin directory.
Can anyone help me do this?

You can't do that really...

What you need to do instead is create a launcher that runs ([(gnome-)xawe]term|rxvt|konsole) -e
