So now what good are the tiny styrofoam balls that serve no purpose besides solar system models for elementary school students everywhere?

I bet Pluto sues for size discrimination, and wins in today's day and age of dumb lawsuits. :-b

Maybe they figure kids will get higher test scores having one less "planet" to learn......

Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.

Depends on who you ask. new wave thinking says no, but newnew wave thinking says there may be moons around Pluto.


I thought they recently discovered a "moon" around Pluto, but some scientists claim it can't even be classified a moon because they're like 30 miles in diameter.

Did you know that the scientific name for our moon is 'moon.' Real original you astronomer dorks.

My $0.02... I don't think Pluto should be a planet anymore, but can remain so only because of the condition which exists from "my very energetic mother just served us nine."

I mean, the whole thing's nothing without the pizzas.

I could have sworn Pluto was supposed to be the Roman allegory for Hades, the Greek god of the underworld...

You would've won the Random Quiz with that answer. :-b

ACS, we'll just pretend Pluto has been sucked into that Pink Taco astronomers call the Black Hole.

Yeah, but a fly isn't a fly... there are different kinds of flies, each with ridiculously difficult to pronounce scientific names; I can understand the naming conventions as a way of keeping the terminology universal.

For instance, all flies in science are actually called Diptera; the most common known as the House fly (Musca domestica).
