Its a mad mad mad mad world.
I was so excited to see that they are finally starting to wise up over at the FDA!And Pluto! With the new definition of a planet, I'm not sure I'm going to want to help Mr. P with is solar system project.
Really, no Pluto?At the age of 37, I just finally learned the name of all the planets due to a song my Kindergarten-daughter sang constantly. All year long. Every day.Figures as soon as I learned it, they'd go switching things around.As for Plan B....I really wish they'd change the nick-name. It makes it sound like an afterthought, like we are deciding to change lunch plans. "Plan A we go to the deli...Plan B, the BBQ place."But kudos for the FDA, in any case.What an odd life I lead when I learn the two big news stories of the day not through the newspaper, or CNN's website or NPR....but APL's blog!! : )
Does this mean I have to take the glow-in-the-dark Pluto off LG's ceiling now? Feh.Well, at least it's better than last week's aborted attemp to redefine planets. I was so not looking forward to having to explain that there were now hundreds of planets.
It feels like we are living in a Trivial Pursuit question...What year did the International Astronomical Union strip Pluto of the planetary status?At least our tax dollars are hard at work... /snarky
I've had that Christine Lavin song about Pluto in my head all day. I know that science proceeds, testing theories and making new knowledge, and that's great. But I do have an emotional attachment to Pluto I didn't realize was there. Odd.I've been too buried at work to pay attention to the national news, so the Plan B item is news to me. Not often do I get a pleasant surprise out of national news, so that's something.
It's wild out there. You never know what will happen next!
We have planet magnets on the fridge, do we remove Pluto?So happy about the FDA decision. I only wish they would have had the nerve to make it for teens also.
Crazy stuff. Next thing you know, my kids'll stop whining.
Planet B. About time!
