I felt this related nicely to today's discussion but mostly was enjoyable to listen to.

I'm just hanging out, really.

i consider my musical tastes to be kind of eclectic. by comparison, how many people on here who listen to aesop rock also love dave matthews band, son house, and modest mouse?

I think Pluto's better off where it is. Instead of being the runt of the litter of proper planets, it gets to be the second largest of the welterweight class!

But at what point does a definition of "planet" that includes Ceres break down? Despite some of the dismissive comments, Pluto (and its tiny brothers and sisters) ARE something special. They're just different than Jupiter and Neptune, or Earth and Mars. They have a different sort of history, a different make-up, and a different orbital environment than the gas giants and the rocky planets. And making a new category to help everyone better conceptualize that difference is a good thing.

AHHHHH I love this shirt <333333
why shouldn't pluto be a planet; a planet's definition is a celestial body moving in an elliptical orbit around a star, which im thinking pluto does!

Thank you thank you thank you for knowing this! I thought I was the only one. Except in my kindergarten version, it was My Very EDUCATED Mother Just Served Us Nine PIZZApies. I remember thinking that pizzapies as one word was a bit of a stretch.

Come on people, Pluto isn't gone, you know. It's still there. Floating around the sun as always. I fail to see how appending "dwarf" to it takes away any of its significance.

Pluto is NOT gone. Be happy it's still there.

I'm fine with them being different. Yet I disagree that they are so different they can't be considered planets. According to the IAU, if Jupiter was in the middle of the asteroid belt, it would not be a planet. Their definition only works here; It is tailored to our own star system and therefore it is not robust. They'll have to reconsider their classification process when we're able to catalog asteroid size bodies in other star systems, otherwise the word planet will have no meaning in our diverse galaxy.

This shirt would have been a lot more appropriate tomorrow - Pluto's name day. Or Clyde Tombaugh's birthday. Either way, the song is good.

But, at the risk of sounding like Colbert - Pluto is an American Planet (Ok, only one discovered by an American)

Without Pluto, this will always be an unfinished thought =\
This should be reason one why Pluto be deemed a planet once more.

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.



I firmly believe that it is difficult to look dumb with your tongue planted firmly in your cheek. And as it happens, I believe that it is quite easy to look dumb while being judgmental.

[And to anyone tempted to point out that the latter is contradictory, I suggest you reread the former.]
