Cosmic Conspiracy Theory

Thanks God, my time has been relaxing lately. It's been nice. No school is fantastic. Bam!

Okay, in case you haven't heard, especially on the news yesterday, it's said that astronomers (around 2500 of them from 75 countries meeting in the Czech Republic) are meeting to decide on the "universal definition" of a planet. This could lead to our solar system to have 12 planets instead of 9:

Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Ceres, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus (wahahaaa), Neptune, Pluto, Charon, and "Xena" (2003 UB313).

Cool diagram
Anyways, if changed, that would mean textbooks and videos and blah blah, etc etc stuff would be changed.

You know what I think the real cause of all this fuss over adding planets and stuff is?

The astronomers are bored. And possibly lonely.
I think I speak for 96.82304% of all people on earth, that there are bigger issues to deal with... and that we don't really care.

You may have seen this in an email forward. You can do this as you sit in front of your computer. Stick your right leg out and draw small circles in the air with your foot clockwise. Now, with your right hand, draw the number 6 in the air. Automatically, your foot will change directions. Fascinating!
(NOTE: If this does not work for you, you should seek professional help from a medical doctor, immediately.)
