Pluto is gone! Just accept it!

I mean, there are bigger "planetoids" than Pluto but you don't hear people complaining about them not being planets... or do you?

Also, check out this discussion about Pluto by the greatest minds in US -- comedians! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=utxaOPRF7os

I want this right now. Why should those elementary school kids making solar system models get off easy by not making Pluto?

I don't think a dwarf planet deserves such big text.

I came here to say the same exact thing. You said it better than I ever could so here is a picture.

Made me laugh, but I think there's a chance the sunlight with the combination of the letters may distort Pluto too much.

This shirt is a bunch of uninformed nonsense. I am from Illinois (a land that has state specific legislation deeming pluto a planet) and let me say one thing Pluto sucks it went away for a reason.

Bring back Pluto indeed. Back in my days, we had NINE planets.

On another note, get off my lawn!

100% yes! I even submitted it with the title "And then there were eight". Also, for the record, my name is Tony, I'm pretty cool but not always so smart.

Bring Back Pluto is an excellent song by Aesop Rock. Wonder if he'll sell these at shows?

What's all this fuss over Pluto?

Remember Ceres? It was a planet long before Pluto.

Or if it's SIZE that matters to you...

All hail Eris!

(And you should, not only because it's bigger than Pluto anyway)

8, 9 or 20 "planets". Discovery is unaffected.

In planetary parlance why do so many consider Dwarf a pejorative rather than a descriptor?.

Fnord!

Ugh, We're still on this?

I like the pluto shirts I already have. It's just not as relevant as it was six years ago.

You know not of what you speak. Underplaying the importance of Trans-Neptunian objects serves no purpose but to sweep modern discoveries under the rug. Simplifying the solar system to 8 planets and a slew of meaningless debris does a great disservice to our children. How are they supposed to be captivated by their surroundings if we don't teach them the true nature of space with all it's discovered complexities?

Pluto has three moons, and shares an interesting orbit with the largest, Charon. Not only does the barycenter of the Pluto Charon system lie ABOVE the surface of Pluto but Pluto and Charon are tidally locked! They're celestial dance partners for crying out loud. Pluto is too cool to be ignored or shrugged off as a dwarf planet. Especially since dwarf planets are not classified as planets at all, unlike dwarf stars which still maintain their stellar status.

To be honest, I'm not really a Sage Francis fan. Not that I don't like him, I just kind of stopped following a lot of the east coast stuff after the early to mid 90's. I really like Aesop Rock, Company Flow, and a few others. Hail Mary Mallon was probably my favorite album for about 6 months after it came out.

Coming up in LA, I was really heavy into that scene. Groups like Freestyle Fellowship, 2Mex, Busdriver, Pigeon John, Open Mike Eagle, etc. are who I usually listen to.

In the meantime, nine minus one left eight...

I was hoping I wasn't going to be the only Aesop Rock fan on here tonight. Hurry up with Skelethon!

I do enjoy the educational comment threads. Shirt is nicely emphatic; I will both sign that petition, as soon as it finishes making the Saturn circuit, and listen to that song.

i know hes from RI but i never really thought of him as east coast. perhaps im not in far enough to notice a similarity in style based on locality. i will say this about sage though, some of this songs are so densely layered with multiple meanings and literary devices that i am constantly rediscovering them. personally, i dont think a person would be disappointed after getting into sage francis, but what do i know? im a bear! i suck the heads off of fish!

You've got a long time to wait. Pluto reached perihelion in 1989. Given its 248-Earth-year orbital period, it won't start coming back until 2113.

Bad ideas free; brilliant ideas by derangement.
