Bummer

Astronomers say Pluto is not a planet:


PRAGUE, Czech Republic - Leading astronomers declared Thursday that Pluto is no longer a planet under historic new guidelines that downsize the solar system from nine planets to eight.
That's going to fuck things up. All the textbooks, astonomy journals and papers, everything since Pluto was discovered. All to please some the scientists.

They need to find something better to do.

Speaking of which:
Farmers believe cows 'moo' with an accent

LONDON (Reuters) - Cows have regional accents, a group of farmers claims, and phonetics experts say the idea is not as far-fetched as it sounds.
Ugh.

And let me guess, the majority of cows speak with a Wisconsin accent?

HEY NOW, stop stealing my post ideas! That rightfully belongs to me! I live near cows, not you!

freddie,
What accent do you suppose the 'happy cows from California' use?
"Like, moo dude."

peggasus,
What accent do yours have?

Arizona cows, like Arizona humans, don't have accents.

You're welcome.

You know, I think the whole Pluto thing might save us in the end. Remember that probe, I think it was Pioneer, upon which they affixed a plaque with the likeness of humans, and a depiction of which planet we inhabited?

I always thought that was a bad idea, kind of like writing, "Hey, galactic carnivores: there's plenty of meat on this planet!"

But, now that Pluto's no longer a planet, when Urrrrggg comes looking for lunch with the map we sent, he'll take one look at our solar system, and say, "Hmmmm ... only eight planets; this must not be it."
