The best thing I've read today about Pluto not being a planet anymore

quirkybird's "An Ode to Pluto, Upon Its Demotion From Planethood".

This'll become just another way of dating people. "Oh yeah, they used to teach us in school that there were nine planets in the solar system, you know --- they didn't know any better about Pluto back then ... "

That has always been an issue. Not sure to classify Pluto as a planet after they discovered other bodies like it, in strange orbits, like it. Most suspect Pluto was a moon of Neptune. Now doesn't that suck. Hades is a mere satellite for Poseidon. On the other hand, Hades is a coward.

I thought you meant 'dating people' as in using that as a pick-up line!
