So long, and thanks for all the fish
Pluto's no longer a planet
! I'm not surprised at this development, since I got the vibe that a majority of the people didn't think Pluto was a real planet, but I'm still a little sad. Now it will have to be My Very Eager Mother Just Served Us Napalm... or something. (Noodles?)
The Plutonians will be so pissed. In a few hours.

Pluto can't catch a break
: first, it was demoted from planet to dwarf planet, and now it's officially not even the biggest dwarf planet
out there. Pluto has become the laughingstock of the Milky Way! The enemies he's made in the Kuiper Belt probably think he's getting his just deserts now that he's been kicked out of the solar-system club and his 15 minutes of fame as the sole elliptical-orbit planet are over. Oh well, you will always have the same name as the Roman god of the underworld, although his Greek counterpart was at least 1000x more awesome. Tsk. Can't even win at that.
: Hot damn, it's been four years and a few days since I first joined.
