The supression of Pluto's everywhere breaks me heart.


Actually, I'm not sure Goofy is superior to Pluto, not intellectually at least.

Pluto was always my favourite anyway

Pluto's so cute I love the episode where he was trying to eat this bone and this big bully dog tried to steal it from him but Pluto outsmarted him in the end...yeah you're right....Pluto is smarter than Goofy lol

I'm saved

I just realized, we've been talking to a planet.

Dude, that's like Woah.

It makes sense to classify Pluto as a "minor planet," instead of a "classical planet." It doesn't share any of the characteristics we'd expect out of a planet, and it's not in the business of science to cower to tradition or public opinion polls.

I think it was a good move on the part of science to reclassify Pluto and similar objects (note that I did not use the word "demote," because that's an absolutely silly term to use in this case).

Exactly. Things are constantly changing in the world of science. People have to accept this, even though it means losing a nostalgic part of one's education. Could you imagine the outrage if something similar to the Internet was around when it was proposed that light could exist as both a wave AND a particle?


"No way, I grew up learning that light was a wave, and that's that!"

"Wave theory FTW!"

"Screw de Broglie! Screw Einstein! How dare they change the laws of science on me?!1?!1 I'm going to start a petition against the idea that light can exist as a wave and a particle! We all know it can only exist as one and not the other!"

Wasn't talking about this forum specifically. Someone started a petition on another forum to get Pluto re-classified as a planet. And I'm not entirely sure if he was joking.
