When I see you, I really see you upside down. But my brain knows better—it picks you up and turns you around.

If I bent like you said was best would that change a thing?

Poor Pluto

slated in mainstream at 6:20 pm

The New Solar System (Pluto is now a "dwarf planet")

Can we seriously just demote Pluto like that? Pluto’s always been the littlest planet in our solar system. Our solar system. Our littlest planet. We loved it as our littlest, ninth planet. And now we’ve just outgrown its cuteness and decided we don’t need it as a planet anymore :-/

Now where we learned “9 planets and one sun”, kids in school will memorize a few more names when they’re learning the solar system: 8 planets and 3 “dwarf planets” — Ceres, Pluto, and “2003 UB313”/Xena.

I guess it works… Still seems a lil sad though…a lil dwarf planet sad.
