Why, all of sudden (okay, so, maybe it has been a gradual shift from “OMG, PLUTO IS NOT A PLANET” to “Pluto was a planet when I was your age…”), is everyone jumping on this goddamn Pluto bandwagon? What did Pluto ever do for you that the “loss” of its title as a planet (more like a clarification to dwarf planet) has caused you to root for Pluto and “miss” it?
Just once I’d like Pluto to stop all that damn orbiting and say “oh hey, I miss you too, but I’m still here”. Or maybe Pluto should don a t-shirt that says “It’s okay humans, sometimes I think of my moons as people too (but mostly Charon because we be tight).”
And technically it’s like Pluto got a promotion from “teeniest, tiniest, ninth planet orbiting the sun” to “second largest dwarf planet”. A promotion and some irony all-in-one.
So Pluto, you will find no sympathy from this human and I know that seems cold, but as I understand you’re about 98% ice anyway.#pluto #you #are #not #planet #get #over #it #hipsters #bandwagon #planets #dwarf #charon #miss #human #rant
