The last year hasn't been kind to Pluto. First it gets demoted and now this.
Discordians, rejoice! (Or don't. I never know what you guys are supposed to be doing.)
I suppose that this means i can buy pluto for cheaper then........
Poor Pluto...Mickey's dog doesn't get any respect.
Made me smile a bit.
What's the deal with ragging on Pluto. I say screw it, and call it a Planet. It's worked this hard for the title over the past 100 years.
Past 1000? We haven't even known about it for a century.
Heh... Eris's moon is named "Dysnomia". Apparently, it's named for a lesser mythologic god, whose name means "lawlessness". However, "dysnomia" is also a neurologic/psychiatric symptom meaning "difficulty remembering names". Sort of an ironic word to use for naming something....
Looks like size does matter.
What planet are we talking about again?
Oh no, Pluto gets served - again.
Pluto got its ass kicked again.
Wait.. wasn;t this the planet they were thinking of naming Charon, and also thinking of naming Xena with the moon being Gabrielle. ???
Poor Pluto, it wont be long till they decide it just doesnt belong in the solar system all together.
Charon is Pluto's satellite (or, probably more aptly, partner/twin).
"Xena" and "Gabrielle" were (mostly) jokingly bandied about as what eventually became Eris and Dysnomia. Since the mythological "Dysnomia" can be translated as "lawlessness", it may still be a Xena tribute (as in "Lucy Lawless").
Separate names with a comma.
