Astronomy corner

For those of you who haven't already heard, I have some bad news: Pluto isn't a planet anymore.

And I don't think I'm overreacting when I say that these bastards can go to hell and die. What, you think you're the boss of me, International Astronomical Union? You can tell me what is and is not a planet? Oh, Pluto's small size and irregular orbit make it a Kuiper Belt object, and if we bring in other Kuiper Belt objects of Pluto's size we'd have dozens of planets. Douchebags. How about this definition of a planet: If they called it a planet in my sixth grade science class, it's a motherfucking planet. Quaoar, Charon, 2003 UB313, you can all kiss my ass. You want to know why Pluto's a planet and you're not, despite having similar size and orbit? Because fuck you, that's why.

I like Pluto. I want Pluto to be a [motherfucking] planet.

i too am a little disappointed about this. as far as i'm concerned Pluto will always be a planet.

Just think, one day kids will grow up having never known a solar system with nine planets. It just boggles the mind.

I thought they decided to let Pluto be a planet? Now Mickey Mouse's dog is named after a space rock? It's a scandal, it is!

Now all the Plutoites are going to get angry and attack us.

I thought that the people from pluto were called pluots.

Couldn't have said it better myself, Slappy.

I'd like to imagine Pluto as Val Kilmer at the end of "Red Planet," shaking his fist and yelling, "Fuck you, Mars!"

slappy said...

Red Planet, that's the one with the crazy man-eating Martian bugs, right? That was pretty sweet.

Tits McGee said...

I think so. Truthfully, I don't remember anything about that movie but the end ("Fuck you, Mars?!" I mean, seriously. That's the best they could come up with?) because I was high as fuck when I watched it.

It will always be a planet to me!
