I imagine this is how this years Mayan Calendar will look like, when it ends and all the planets 'align' (for a photo) ;)

I've been wanting a Pluto-themed t-shirt for a while now. Not that I've ever had a chance – this has been going on since 2006. First opening day woot that I've bought in a while.

Yeah, so there's that...

In the end it doesn't matter, because all hell is going to brake loose when it happens, right?



No one will know as we are are gone after Dec 22 this year.

I like my planets with rings. Plus, I think Pluto has had it rough enough the past few years without me buying a shirt to bash it.

Pah! This is so unrealistic... I can't buy this. As if they could all get so close without gravity causing them to collide at high speeds!

They would be much better waiting until the planets were all in line and ask a friendly comet to take the photo.



Yeah, Comet will use a 1 ton camera. That'll be realistic.

Yeah, I even think Venus is bigger than Earth (and the wrong color).

It's my birthday today, I like this shirt, I should buy this shirt.

My wife put the kibosh on new shirts (as my shirt drawer is over-flowing).

I can get rid of a shirt to make room for this one.

But my wife gets sad when I wear my "You're not one of us anymore" shirt and would probably get even sadder if I wore this one.

Verdict: For the greater good of my marriage, no shirt today. But please know that I dig this one the most.

Oh yeah, obligatory "Whisky Tango Foxtrot $12!?!?!?!"

If my daughter thinks she wears a XS, but I think she wears a S. Does that mean I should buy a M?

So in 30 years are like alot of people not even going to get Pluto is not a planet jokes because Pluto stopped being a planet before they were even born?



I'm really careful with my shirts but even I think my shirt will be worn out in 30 years, give or take 10.

All I can say is that the ladies shirts run small. Every woman I know who's bought a women's woot.shirt has gone up a size from their "normal" shirt size.

I think the best way to figure out the sizing is to have her measure one of her own shirts and then compare measurements. I normally wear S but I get an M in Woot shirts, but I think it also depends on how you're built (and I am not... built).

Very cute shirt.

I'm not getting the fish out of water reference, though. That phrase means a situation where something is outside it's normal environment. And references the uncomfortable and/or comical things that ensue. Like a Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court, for example.

EDIT: Oh forget it. I just read Woot's rules on the derby. It's Woot that got it wrong. WOOT: Not fitting in isn't "fish out of water". It's "black sheep".

I have to agree with those that has said this is an overused and pointless topic. Pluto is no longer classified as a planet. It's still a dwarf planet. It still exists. Nothing about it physically changed. No one hates it. We have just corrected a mistake we've been making for decades.

As for those who say "Pluto, you will always be a planet to me!" I would like to point out that there is no one around saying how "Earth, you will always be flat to me!"

**Uranus

Neptune is mostly upright, while Uranus spins both 'backwards' (clockwise when viewed from the North pole, like Venus) and nearly on its side.

Pluto is a fish out of water because it's not a planet anymore.

The earth's status as "flat" was not a classification, arbitrarily changed by a minority vote of scientists. It was a primitive idea based on observation that changed when new facts came to light. Pluto Planeteers have logic and reason on their side considering most planets don't even fit all of the IAU's qualifications for planet classification because they have not cleared the neighbourhood around their orbits.

'Fish out of water' means the fish SHOULD be back in the water.

However, scientists have spoke and said Pluto SHOULD NOT be in the water (aka considered a planet).

Hence, technically, it is not a fish out of water since it shouldn't be in the water in the first place.

That being said I think people are putting too much thought into the title....

I'm sorry I just had to.. the planets aren't aligning, the Sun the Earth and the Galactic center are aligning.

Thank goodness someone else out there understands idioms! Unfortunately, Woot mislead people about the meaning of the phrase. Their instructions for the derby suggested that people show things that don't fit in.

Luckily, the derby title won't print on the shirt. So all these folks buying one won't constantly have to face folks like you and me telling them, "your shirt isn't quite right."
