Pluto has lost planet status. I am not an astronomer. I have never owned a telescope -- unless you count the one I sent away UPC symbols for as a kid. However, one mnemonic device that is etched into my brain is the one for remembering the nine planets.
So now Pluto is reduced to a "dwarf planet." Now what? If they're going to be taking away and possibly adding planets all willy-nilly, Imma need a new phrase introduced at the same time that the planetary lineup is changed.
Hmph! Got me memorizing stuff and carrying on and now they just wanna change it and leave me hanging. What is my "mother" sitting on?
