campaign to save pluto's planetary status  
I'm starting a campaign to keep Pluto as a planet. My plan is to build a cathedral on it, cos then it won't matter what size it is :-)

Yep. Or at least discussing it's status. It's been known for a long time that if Pluto was discovered now it wouldn't be called a planet. It's just too small. It's smaller than the moon! But now they've found another object that's bigger, so is the new one (Xena!) a planet, or Pluto not a planet, or is Pluto an honourary planet, or what.

One option is to have 8 classical planets and three plutons and Ceres: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/4795755.stm

BTW, have you seen this?: http://www.rense.com/general72/size.htm

Perhaps just a small office in the cathedral. And a chapel. And a leeeetle turkey farm.

My team lead tells me that Kilkenny has three claims on being a city. It has a catherdral, there was a parliment and... em... I forget the other.

Kilkenny a city
That they were granted a charter of city status in 1609 by King James I?

Re: Kilkenny a city
Oh yeah. That'd be it.
