Oh man! That's totally going to screw up the whole "My Very Educated Mother Just Served Us Nine Pizzas" thing.

is this the same one announced several months ago, the one they were (or are) going to call Xena - or is this yet ANOTHER large Kuiper Belt planetary object.
if so, this could change our thinking about planetary status according to size, distance from the sun, orbit. very, very interesting.

I heard Bob Castellini called NASA and told them to bring in another planet to push Pluto....

This is a new one. Bigger than Pluto.

Yes, some refinements are necessary to the classification system. Most astronomers don't consider Pluto to be a planet, for example, since it's smaller than many moons and has a highly eccentric orbit. Most laymen, however, think it is a planet, because that's what they learned in fourth grade.

Things change. Science, and all that.

I hear Pluto isn't recogonized in Europe... kinda like how David Hasseloff isn't recognized in the US.

The solution is clear

Destroy Pluto :devil:

We have asteroids running around with bigger mass the Pluto, it's silly that it's still considered a planet, it's really just a rock hanging around the solar system waiting for the big planets to accept it ;)

I suspect Pluto, may be plotting against the new planet already.

I can assure you that Pluto, as the Italian god of the underworld, is planning something very, very messy.

LoganBuck

Either that or Pluto, Disney God of dog crap, just did something very messy.

Y'all are trashin' Pluto, but I think Pluto's hot! Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, right?

Is this the other Earth that directly on the other side of the sun as us? And everything is opposite over there? If so how do they like the great economy and low gas prices? ;)

Destroy Pluto

No, No, K-man... the apes (egads!) were on Earth! Remember as Taylor and his primitive "lady-friend" rode off in the end (of the original) and saw that gift that the French gave us.

It was Earth, all along!

Pluto's just a big useless ball of ice anyway. Unless Zaphod Beeblebrox needs a cold drink, there ain't nothin' you can do with it.

Pluto does have a moon, though, called Charon.

not to be confused with 1960s lounge singer Charo, who is much more dense.

BTW, is this 10th planet currently on a collision course with Earth?

Or is that the dreaded "Planet X"?

(Roman numerals tend to confuse me)

Wasn't Planet X supposed to kill us in 2003 or 2004?

as far as i know, it was supposed to kill us in 1975, 1977, 1978, 1981, 1982...you get the picture.
of course, one of these days, they'll be right...and they will be laughing at us. and laugh. and laugh. and laugh.
then they'll be dead, too.

2012 is the next big year for death for all of us anyway. It seems like all the nuts, and Da Vinci Code types have picked that out, at least if you watch the HistoryChannel programs. So far we have death by war, meteor hit, plague and a planet smashing into us, perhaps aliens arrive as well.

December 23rd, 2012... it's the end of the Mayan Calendars cycle. Terrance McKenna believed it too. Probably Robert Anton Wilson too.

Make that the Aztec calendar

Chris Carter of X-Files also used 12-22-2012 for the day "the aliens" will finally take over :alien:

(Kinda spooky how his "Millenium" series was doing episodes about bird flu back in '99...)
