No wonder no one reads papers anymore.

It was pretty heavily advertised on campus, but the line was ridiculously long pretty early. It circled around the engineering fountain on one side and to the watchtower on the other. Needless to say I did not end up going even though I wanted to.

that actually made me wonder a bit why papers don't do that even more to make more space for text
#83 to #11 - rebenely (05/18/2014) [-]
it's a breakthrough

It might be on purpose just to keep students from stealing a ton of papers just to cut out the picture and do something stupid with them.

Oh who cares anymore, it was only a logical decision.
Either eliminate pluto as a planet, or count a lot of similar or larger sized planetoids as planets as well.
#4 to #3 - anon (05/17/2014) [-]
But no. We define. Why logic? Why?

that and the fact that the majority of those who defend pluto being a planet, do so out of fear of change and/or misplaced nostalgia.

No, it's because IT IS A ******* PLANET YOU **** .

Well,it's still a Planetoid, a dwarf planet to be exact.
After all, he was just reclassified, not erased.
And there are actually already 5 other objects in the class of dwarf planets, about a dozen good canidates for beeing classified as dwarf planets, and far more possible canidates.

You can't just bring up pluto as a planet then crush him all of a sudden. Make the ************ an honorary planet or something, leaving him out completely is just cold.

Ever hear of Ceres?
It was a planet between Mars and Earth.
Now its part of an asteroid belt, because there are literately thousands the same size if not bigger and more planet like.

Same as Pluto, not only is it smaller, then a large amount of the asteroids next to it, but there are thousands of them.

If we called pluto a planet we wouldn't be learning just a 7 word saying, we would be learning a ******* novel because out of all the asteroids in Pluto's belt, its one of the most asteroids like.

Recent evidence is showing that Pluto is currently the largest non-planetary, non-moon body in the solar system that we know of. Even Eris, once thought to be larger, was discovered to be short in comparison. It was just shiny so it looked bigger in telescopes at the time.

In 2015, Pluto's size will be confirmed by the space probe heading there, and one could argue that you could set the limit to a planet's size at Pluto and leave it at that, all without drastically changing the number of "planets" in our solar system. Until we're able to track every single rock floating around our fiery ball of gas, which we might find a couple.

People who think they can override scientific advancement because they think Pluto has feelings and it's sad that we aren't calling it a planet anymore

You POS  Technically speaking, you're right, but we should also be able to call Pluto a planet without rustling any jimmies.

Oldest known star discovered, billions of years old, theorized to be a second generation star, scientists learning a lot about early stars, no one gives a **** .

Classification of planets altered so the list wouldn't expand exponentially, causing it to decrease by one, people lose their **** .

User avatar #85 - malkotay (05/18/2014) [-]
get over it , it is now in an other category because it simply does not match the characteristics of a planet.

As Neil says: people only get upset because there is a disneydog with the same name
