I had this to say in Poo's (locked) entry about Pluto's status as a dwarf planet:
I think the reason there's all this wank is because it's changing our world. This "zomg change!" happens every single time a major scientific (or even mathematical) discovery happens. Years from now when people study the 2006 redefinition of planet, they're going to look at all this wank from a historical point of view. Right now, though, we're just looking at it from the present.
Someone should really create dwarf_planets though. *goes to see if other planets have accounts*
In case you're wondering, they do. mercury, venus, earth, mars, jupiter, saturn, uranus, and neptune are all real accounts. Heh.
