Yep. Ceres, followed by Charon. They've been named 'Dwarf PLanets' too. *sighs*

For me, Pluto is still a planet even if the scientists FINALLY decided to rename it a "dwarf planet". So what?
Do they think after years of Pluto being a planet they can now change it? I won't change MY mind ;)

I was a point away from failing a test the other day because i said there were 8 planets in the solar system. I kinda did that on purpose but still... I was correct.

(I did talk the teacher into giving me the 2 points though.)

Meh. Doesn't ruffle me much. It's an astronomical classification, the taxonomy of the stars. It wouldn't hurt my feelings if a bunch of botanists re-classified some pretty flowers for scientific purposes -- they'd still be pretty flowers.

To me, Pluto being in a different category is just a formality. A formality that seems to be a little wonky based on my decidedly (un)professional opinion, but still, a formality. I'll still refer to Pluto as a planet in everyday use, because that is the convention I grew up with... and, well... my general usage of formalities is a bit lax to begin with.

Besides, where's all the joy over having two new planet-kinda-thingies added to the ol solar system? Planet-kinda-thingies need love, too. I say we name UB313 "Larry the Horrible."

Sailor Larry the Horrible? *shudder*

And I'd give love to Ceres, but I don't want to give Sailor Ceres more fodder to let the promotion get to her head :P

Sailor Larry the Horrible would be awesome! She could like, sort of be evil but be one of the good guys, you know, like an anti hero? Maybe she could be a man, and in his spare time he sits on his couch drinking beer while watching football...

Although making Ceres a planet does sort of mess up the concept of the asteroid senshi. Maybe Pluto can join the asteroid senshi and Ceres can be promoted. Now that could be funny.

LOL. I was actually one of the many who immediately thought of Sailor Pluto when I heard this. I had to chastise myself for being twenty-one, a science major, and still immediately thinking of Sailor Moon. Ah well, I do feel bad for the kids who were just learning that Pluto is a planet and now have to change that...not to mention the teachers who have to alter their teaching plans completely. I wonder if they now have to teach about dwarf planets. :) Sorry Tiff!

It's not my fault you forgot to read the invisible fine print on SMU stating that whatever you post here is free for Tiffu to use without the payment of royalties.
