    Our solar system may have nine planets after all

    A couple of astrophysicists are claiming that data from NASA's WISE space telescope is supporting their theories about a really big planet in the solar system's Oort cloud (a cloud of comets way beyond Pluto). If this planet exists, there wouldn't be any arguments about it being a "dwarf planet", because it would be HUGE -- up to four times the mass of Jupiter.

    I bet Pluto is doubly angry now, after dropping into the Conference USA of outer space.

    PLUTO SHALL HAVE HIS REEEEEVVVVVEEEENNNNGGGGEEEE!

    As for Tyche, it'll be interesting to see whether it really is a supergiant gas planet or if it's the brown giant star Nemesis.

    Hopefully it is indeed a planet, and we bring in a 9th official planet, finally filling out the mnemonic 'My Very Educated Mother Just Served Us Nine _' with...perhaps...'Tacos'?

    We should bring back Pluto, and have 'My Very Educated Mother Just Served Us Nine Pink Tacos'

    You know, I was going to post that, but thought maybe it would be a bit awkward. At least somebody made the somewhat obvious leap.

    The Jesus Train is coming!!!

    (okay, Jesus Train isn't mentioned in the Wiki article - it was on this 2012 Apocalypse website on the same subject that, before Nibiru destroyed Earth, "the Jesus Train" was going to pass by Earth and picked up the believers of the Nibiru cult. Or perhaps Nibiru was the Jesus Train. Or something like that. That website was so cuckoo that, like a horrifying train wreck, I couldn't pull my eyes away from it)

    I have heard discussion that maybe Pluto should have been kept as a planet. They may have been too hasty. The Plutans are upset.

    I have not heard of that one
    The story that comes to mind for me is that it is the home planet of the Annunaki who were here when the summarians were alive. And in 2012, their planet is supposed to be closest to the earth in thousands of years and that is when the Annunaki are supposed to return. Either way, both funny.
