People just want Pluto back so their mnemonic devices work.

"My Very Excellent Mother Just Served Us Nine"
"...Nine what?!"
"That's it, since Pluto was taken off, she didn't serve us anything. No pizza, no pie..."

I like the design.

But after watching the documentary on this topic and listening to Neil's logic and reasoning, I agree with the decision.

I think it's just the whole "I grew up with 9 planets, you can't change that." (Plus Americans don't want to give up the one "planet" we discovered) But change is just part of life. Deal with it.

That sounds like a lot of the good "underground" rap that's out there. I'll definitely give him a good listen this week. It's so hard to keep up with everything that's out, especially now that people are able to self publish and digitally distribute.

You should give Flash Bang Grenada a listen, if you haven't heard 'em.

People who call pluto a not-planet just want to be able to keep the question, "how many planets are there in the solar system?" in text books.

It's moves like this that make children ignorant of such celestial bodies as Ceres. Even though it accounts for 32% of the mass in the asteroid belt. I don't hide discoveries from my kids for the sake of simplicity. They can handle the truth.

A friend of mine saw Sage Francis walking around Minneapolis, and Sage just looked at him and yelled WHAT! But to be fair it was around the time of Eyedea's death so I'm sure he was on edge.

I think I am going to buy this next time I go to a Brian Regan Show... Anyone who dosn't know, Brian Regan is a funny comedian that did a joke about Pluto's planet status.. Its called the Epitome of Hyperbole and it is in that comedy special somewhere. I could not find the clip anywhere but you have to watch it, it is super funny!

Even though the definition of a planet makes perfect sense to me, I laughed and bought this anyway! Love it.

She can serve nachos. Everybody likes nachos, right?

Personally, I'm tired of this argument regardless of how facetious its intention. The reasoning for removing its planet status was sound and logical. The name "planet" is pretty irrelevant to being with. There are tons of fairly substantial objects in our solar system. The people that seem to perpetuate this argument tend to not even know that. Just let it go already.

Yeah I think it's important to teach our children critical thinking and critical thinking says pluto is a rock and nothing overly special and was only classified a planet because of the limitations of our time. We can teach them about the actual solar system and other solar systems and planets. Any other rampant hyperbole you gonna throw my way?



I understand where you're coming from, but is it not critical thinking that leads us to question the new classification of Pluto? Doesn't critical thinking require us to see both sides of the argument objectively? Is it not arrogant to say critical thinking validates your opinion alone?

Also if you can wrongly call other star systems "solar systems" you should have no problem with me calling pluto a planet.

So, for the people wanting Pluto back, are you fine with several or maybe dozens of new planets being added?

Definitely! I'd rather learn about the new planets being discovered than learn new contrived definitions for the word planet any day.

I personally go with the "educated mother" and her "nine pizzas."

Without Pluto, she wouldn't be very educated serving Nachos. Or even Nothing. Is there anything "educationally" healthy beginning with N?

I mean pizza is that food that includes many food groups. And pizza is pie. And everybody loves pi.

One of the first mnemonics I've saw with just eight planets was "My Very Educated Mother Just Showed Up Naked." Apparently, "advancements" in science is yielding us disturbing images in the process. :P

Pluto was NEVER a planet.

We just thought it was for a while. Science is about correcting mistakes. Anyone who says Pluto should be a planet is valuing nostalgia over reality.

Or I'll just buy this one. Occupy Pluto.

pretty much.
this is as dumb as people whining about brontosaurus not being a valid dinosaur name.

I'm sorry general public, people who know more than you about these specialized fields have come to a consensus. All the whines and nostalgia in the world won't change stuff and honestly complaining years later just makes a person look dumb.
