I'm not sure what that's from... But it's 12:25 and I have an appointment with the orthopedic surgeon at 9:30 so \I'm going to sleep.

One last thing that pisses me off, planetary designation. Whae I was your age, Pluto was a planet.

Maybe he meant that the planet's sizes had to be to scale, and the distance between planets was to scale, but the distance between the planets relative to their size was not to scale.

I wonder how much deeper the ocean would be without sponges.
Right now I'm having amnesia and deja vu at the same time. I think I've forgotten this before.

Well building it to scale would pose problems as well. The sun is about 108 times the diameter of earth and about 625 times the diameter of Pluto. wait, Pluto doesn't matter anymore... Dangit.

Well if the Earth was an inch in diameter as you stated above, the sun would have to be 9 feet (~3 meters) wide.

Prolly the stupidest label I've ever read was on the back of a bottle of Lunesta sleep aid: WARNING: May cause drowsiness.

You know what? I'm not even gonna say anything...

we didnt have to do the sun, or pluto. and our science teacher seemed happy enough that we didnt make paper circles and call them a model.

Yup ours was the best in the class, the scale was 1cm=25,000,000.
It ended up around being 9 feet.

What are you talking about bashing? I say that to people all the time. I was bashing the factthat Pluto isn't considered a planet anymore. It pisses me off. You really need to take a minute to think before you post something idiotic man.
