Romancing Pluto; Part 1

Astronomer: hey dude, Pluto is not a planet anymore...
Me: Pluto the dog was a planet?
Astronomer: Ha Ha, nice joke Gp, Pluto is reclasified into a Dwarf Planet
Me: So whats a Planet now?
Astronomer: Oh the usual suspects, the big guys, mercury, venus...etc
Me: Hemm...does it matter?
Astronomer: Why do you say so?
Me: There are probably a billion more things we dont know about the universe...
Astronomer: But there are a lot that we already know and..
Me: And never do anything about, so you go around messing things up?
Astronomer: We reclasified the rock, not blow it up
Me: Again, does it matter what you do? Its more of a cultural significance, people wont forget and forgive.
Astronomer: ahh...there are billions of more things out there to investigate and know, so does this matter....
Me: WTF!

The first laugh on a dull day ! Lovely !

I recall my 2nd grade teacher tell me that if i ever played 'the dirty prank' again, she will banish me to Pluto ! From that day on, Pluto was a favourite planet! Dont care if it is dwarfed or otherwise !! WTF !!

BTW, did u get to see Vettayaadu Vilaiyaadu? Its technically super-wow and worth a dekko for sure!

You are right they should have left pluto alone and gone after the billion of other stuff floating in the universe.

Do I care what other people think about pluto? For me the smallest or is it tiny tot of the family is more cheerisable than grownup/big guys!
