Pluto*

Let’s be clear here—Pluto didn’t do anything to deserve being demoted. It’s not like we learned some secret fact about Pluto that meant it was no longer a planet. We just learned about all of its neighbors and realized that if Pluto is a planet, then we have about a dozen “planets” in the system. It’s like having your driver’s license taken away because a lot of other people passed their driving exams. That said, it’s tiny, frozen, barren, and dark. Really, being a planet was about the only thing it had going for it.

Poor Pluto.

What’s you best strategy for settling on another planet? How long do you think you’ll make it?
