yeah, i know...everyone is writing about the celestial body formerly known as pluto losing its planetary status.
imagine a bunch of astronomers hanging out in a dingy cafe (what else do they have to do, really?) knocking back a few budvars and talking about their recent "symposium" in orlando...
"that dog might have been big in the old days but that doesn't give him the right to piss on my leg like that. calls himself a star. he ain't no star!"
"i hear ya, brother! he ain't no star!"
interestingly "star", in drunken czech, sounds a lot like "planet" in drunken czech.
and...it's widely known that "journalists" like to lurk around dingy bars looking for a "story" that will get them out of the mail room.
let's imagine one overheard this conversation.
as i've mentioned before i have been in contact with extra-terrestrial races by virtue of blasting my blog into outerspace through blogs-in-space.
i have it on good authority that the "plutonians" don't give a rats ass about this.
