Insomnia Log

This is what keeps me awake at night???

Who needs sleep? (well you’re never gonna get it)
Who needs sleep? (tell me what’s that for)
Who needs sleep? (be happy with what you’re getting,
There’s a guy who’s been awake since the second world war)

Donald Slips Pluto a Mickey, Everybody Turns Goofy

So, Pluto is no longer a full-fledged planet. It's a planet lite, along with the asteroid Ceres and wannabe planet UB40 (and the Rat in its Kitchen). I can't believe how many people are up in arms about this. This is such an emotional issue. We all grew up with nine planets, and dammit there should always be nine planets.

Well, here's some news. Science is not static. If it were, it would be called religion. Science is a process about trying to better understand the universe, learning new things, classifying.

If you are fighting based on your personal emotions and beliefs that Pluto should remain a planet, then you are the same as the people who fought to keep Plan B contraceptives off the shelves at drugstores or who deny global warming. Get over yourself and let the world move on.
