Uranus

*sigh* There’s nothing that we can say about this planet that’s not going to sound like a juvenile joke. Uranus is cold? Uranus is big, but not nearly as big as Jupiter? Unranus is flipped on its side? Uranus is surrounded by clouds of noxious smelling gas? These are just scientific facts, people, but they sound utterly ridiculous because of the naming strategy of an 18th century German astronomer. Let’s just end with this simple truth—even if you figure out a way to live there, it’s best not to talk about Uranus in front of people.
