Wow, thats two new planets since last I was in school.
They go to eleven?
*insert Spinal Tap joke here*
..The heck? Pluto's a planet again?! (Yes, they call them "dwarf planets", but that means they're not planets, and there's a lot more planets than 11 if you include dwarf planets.) Ugh, can't they make up their slaggin' minds?
Wait, they count Ceres now? WTF?
Ceres used to be a planet back in like the 1800s heh
That is what I was thinking.
Back in my day, there were only 9 planets and we liked it that way!
*waves angry fist at the whipper-snappers*
...I echo Beastbot. Huh?? All the hoopla over Pluto no longer counting as a planet...and then they go and add two others in addition?
With slight editing, that mnemonic device could also work for the 8 non-dwarf planets:
My Very Excited Member Just Sexed Up Nuns.
Wow I didn't realize we have 11 planets now, apparently.
Ceres and Eris can lick my anus.
WTF? Has it been this long since my college Astronomy class?
Yep. Now I've off to a class on the biosphere of planet Vadus 8 and the astropolitics of the andromeda galaxy.
Anyway, I thought it was 12 planets? 8 Planets and 4 dwarf planets?
Ceres and Eris?
What is this madness?
*Waits for Sparta*
Eleven? The Hell?
You know the problem with coming up with a new term like "dwarf planet" is that they probably are going to find alot more of them in the future. The region of space beyond Neptune is relatively large and extremely difficult to chart. We may never fully know what is out there. Apparently Japan has also just claimed today to have discovered a REAL planet measuring 30 percent to 70 percent of the Earth's mass. Planet 'X' people. Read article below:
P.S. I say stick to the major 8 and be done with it. Unless they discover a 'REAL' Planet. Non of the dwarf planet crap.
Who are the two new planets.
Ceres and Eris. They're both "dwarf" planets.
Weren't they the replacement Duke boys?
"...and I thought hey I believe, I believe, but now I know that I was wrong."
In high school biology, two friends of mine, Keith Piper and John Coffee, used "Keith Piper and COF Get Sex" to remember Kingdom Phylum Class Order Family Genus Species. And I still use it...though it's of little practical value at a movie theatre.
