I think she's thinking: "This is for trying to steal my boyfriend; all those rumors must be true!"

Be careful with this one, there is a bit of a pun involved. Dr. Spooner described his visit to a castle: "In the center of the fortress was the Palace Court. The gated entrance to this area was the court palace."

I still don't get why it's so hard to memorize eight planets instead of nine. Apparently, kids can memorize their time tables without catchy phrases yet it's impossible to teach kids to memorize EIGHT planets without a catch phrase. :roll:

That one with the kids is funny...

I feel cold and empty! I want to cut myself and bleed my pain of loss! if only Pluto were a planet again I wouldn't feel so broken...


For christs sake... what the big fucking deal?


As for the other picture... lol. I think it's be even funnier if all the senshi were laughing at her.

I wonder how Chibi-Moon would feel about this?

Chibi-Moon needs to worry about getting her own planet and stop ripping off her mom first.

But then again, I guess she technically just lost one of her Asteroid Senshi to so I'll cut her some slack...

I know! If we all send in poptarts to the scientists, maybe we can still save Sailor Pluto! I propose that we start a campain to save Pluto, and we'll call it "SOP" (Save Our Pluto)!

SOS tried to campaign to save Sailor Moon by having people buy a shiteload of Strawberry Poptarts. Poptarts was one of the sponsors during the show, so SOS figured that if we bought Strawberry Poptarts, it would save the show from going off the air.... Yeah, insane, I know...

I thought he was just being funny... that's hilarious. To bad though, I'm allergic to the breakfest tart's of goodness :cry:


I mean, damn, it's not like Pluto blew up or something. It'as not like they'll throw you in jail for calling it a planet.... stupid kids...

I had never heard that phrase when I was learning the planets and I learned them just fine. I don't understand why everyone is making a big deal of this. The way some people have reacted, you would almost think that the sky is falling or something. As for my opinion on Pluto not being a planet any more.
Everybody was a baby once, Arthur. Oh, sure, maybe not today, or even yesterday. But once. Babies, chum: tiny, dimpled, fleshy mirrors of our us-ness, that we parents hurl into the future, like leathery footballs of hope. And you''ve got to get a good spiral on that baby, or evil will make an interception.

I posted on another message board about Sailor Pluto being kicked out of the Sailor Senshi just for fun. I even quoted "drunk Pluto". Well someone took me way too seriously and started explaining why Sailor Pluto was still a senshi and that in the Sailor Moon universe Pluto is still a planet.

Geez, I didn't expect anyone to think I was serious...

Well, Sailor Moon will forever be frozen in the mid 90's so I guess it is still a planet there :?


I'd like to see an all-out fight between Sailor luto and Sailor Ceres now! The real reason behind the demotion!

Pluto - Now Even More on the Cosmic "D-list"

If I'm reading this correctly, Pluto has been removed from the Dwarf Planet section and dumped into the Asteroids and Small Bodies category. I'm starting to feel sorry for Pluto.
And really, why shouldn't we be afraid? In case you haven't heard, life is terminal. Cigarettes will kill you. So will your cellphone. Your car is a deadly weapon and alcohol is a quiet killer. Don't lick the lead-based paint on the walls. Don't lick the back of a postage stamp and certainly don't lick any strangers! That will bring you down quickly indeed. Don't drink the water but don't drink less than eight glasses a day. Your enviroment is toxic, your natural resources are dwindling, your days are numbered, but what ever you do, don't panic! The stress, don't you know, will kill you.

A little bit of Wiki-digging actually indicates that Dwarf Planets are sub-section of Asteroids and Small Bodies ('Minor Planets'); basically anything that's not a planet will get such a numerical designation, but Ceres, Eris, and Pluto are still Dwarf Planets because they are spherical, rotate around the Sun, and do not have satelites of their own.

In the near future, I can just see them reclassifying Pluto again. Next time it will be a Double Planet with Charon, and then we can all bang our heads into the wall.

I wonder if the human race would get angry if it turned out that some alien race in the next Solar System over classified Earth as a Dwarf Planet. XD;

What else would they do, though? They're astronomers; their job is to look to the heavens and study the celestial bodies, and in order to do that, it helps to have the various objects they study be classified based on properties that make them similar.
