Dear “persons” thinking Pluto is still a planet,

Dear “persons” thinking Pluto is a (major) planet,

If you cannot name the four other known dwarf-planets—or Pluto’s three sister bodies for that matter—you don’t have a leg to stand on. If you aren’t aware that Pluto is just one of 70,000 Kuiper belt1 objects 100 km or bigger and you aren’t prepared to learn the names of at least say 1% of said 70,000 then also fuck you, you sentimental, anti-science philistines.

1 Sorry, Eric. No love.
