want Pluto back
Lets start a campaign.
we can bomb Earth until Pluto is 'liberated' from the midgets
Yeah, but we got 3 new dwarf planets. That's gotta be something, right?
But it smacks of segregation.
a dwarf planet and a midget planet?
with having a core.
A dwarf planet will punch you out if you call it a midget.
is that science is now engaged in dogma. not doing so (and the basis for it) was the primary distinction between it and religion. science as a religion is closer to fruition than ever.....
mentioned this last time, but what about the rhyme?
dwarf planets being rare ( and small ) they will be very popular for tourism.
I think they'll soon be too expensive for humans like us !
that it was only those nerdy astronomers who stayed to the end of their conference who got to vote and who had it in for Pluto.
Most of the others had fucked off to a nightclub (a sky at nightclub) or had stayed in the pub at lunchtime. Now this lot are crying foul cos they weren't in the room.
I don't blame them for getting upset - you turn your back for a minute and someone kills everyone's favourite planet.
it went. My very easy method, just string up nine planets. now each first letter of each word indicated which planet it was, but now theres no 'p' im not going to know what the hell to string up!
was that by the old definition there were hundred of bodies that could be defined as planets. Try finding a snappy acronym for that.
but if they can be called planets then why not say we have 9 major planets and like 167 minor outlying other ones.
Pluto is no more a planet than a load of other junk flying around in space. It's not even the biggest of the other stuff beyond the 8 current "official" planets.
which surely should merit it a planet.
let it go, its over, you cant bring it back
i just can't take it any more!!! people out there who named there dog after the all mighty planet are now also stricken of that honour. It makes me sick.
doesn't make something a planet. There are only 7 planets (now), where as there are no doubt an absolute shit load of things in the universe with an atmosphere. "Planet" means whatever scientists want it to mean. To be honest, I'm not sure of their exact definition at the moment.
unless uranus got demoted too? yeah they like to keep hese things secret dont they. damn them all! did the news or anything give a reason?
I forgot Jupiter. The bastard...
red spot(that is jupiter right?)
that the initial title of the thread would have given me a hint. But no.
this far down.i dont unless its highly relevant.
Come on. WAY old.
