Did anyone even bother to read the article attached to that post that claims “Pluto is a planet again?” all it says is that two scientists had a debate and asked the audience what their opinion was, and the audience said Pluto is a planet
Literally nothing has changed if you check the NASA website there’s nothing about Pluto except that it’s a dwarf planet and the New Horizons spacecraft will be reaching it in 2015 (holy shit I didn’t know that AHHH that’s so exciting)
But seriously check your sources
Yeeeessssssss. Furthermore, if people think that wanting Pluto to be a planet again is enough to make it a planet again, then they need to consider the fact that Pluto is no longer a proper planet is because there are other things out there that are larger than Pluto, as well as have similarly odd or cluttered orbits, so if they think Pluto should be a full-blown planet again, then they should also embrace Ceres* and Haumea and Makemake and Eris and whatever else hasn’t yet been discovered.
And I betcha they don’t wanna do that, either.
*As a matter of fact, Ceres was considered a proper planet for about 50 years. Pluto was considered a planet for only half again as long as that. UNDERSTANDING CHANGES. THAT’S WHAT MAKES SCIENCE SCIENCE.
To every ignorant poc out there that says “well im ___ and im not offended by this, there are bigger issues to fight”
Stop using your identity to silence others. Just because you dont find it impotant doesnt mean it isnt important to someone else. Dont take that away from them
i realise a lot of people on tumlr don’t follow sports/particularly the nfl and that means a lot of people on tumlr have no reason to know that the San Diego Chargers’ mascot is this horrible being named Boltman that i am increasingly sure is @dril’s physical form

Early 17th Century Combination warhammer and warpick/six shot gun.
Has six barrels concealed on it for six shots. The head contains five barrels, their muzzles concealed by a hinged cover forming the edge of the hammer. The topmost barrel is ignited by a matchlock fitted on one side of the head, its mechanism concealed by a brass plate cut out and engraved in the form of a lion. A sixth barrel, also hand-ignited, is concealed within the haft.
