Moon is no egg. Mood is goddess. Wife of sun. It is known.

That's no moon.

The moon and the sun
Partners in light

Even Earth can't remain faithful to just one ass. Always gotta have a little piece on the side.

Uh, it's called an ellipsis, Subby.

Farking gravity! How does it work?!?!

intotheabyss81: Farking gravity! How does it work?!?!


It's only a theory. I prefer the idea of Intelligent Falling.

Four cornered simultaneous earth has four moons. You are educated stupid.

"I got a rock"

QI is hardly obscure.

The dork side of the Moon?

So Pluto gets demoted from planet status, but a one-meter long rock is a moon.

Thanks.
 
2012-04-03 11:05:46 AM  
If Pluto can't be a planet anymore then a one meter asteroid can't be a moon.

Keith Moon will always be with us. Always.

Does this mean we have to stop calling them meteor showers in favor of moon showers?

You're not helping.

I have a dream. I've seen the light. Don't put it out, say she's alright. Yeah, she's my sister.

Saturn now has 3.18 x 1013 moons.

The real question is:

When discussing a rock traveling silently in the background, what foley sounds does NPR use for background atmosphere while their narrator whispers into an overgained mic?

We like the moooooon, because it is close to us!
 
2012-04-03 11:10:37 AM  
So satellite = moon now? Bullshiat.
 
2012-04-03 11:11:40 AM  
M-O-O-N, that spells moon ...
 
2012-04-03 11:14:09 AM  
Those are no moons...

DrZiffle: So Pluto gets demoted from planet status, but a one-meter long rock is a moon.

Thanks.


I know it's hard to understand, but planets and moons are different things. We tried to make it easier to tell the difference between the two by spelling them differently.

FTFA "Mostly these go whizzing by, not even slowing down to wave"

So some of them did actually wave to us?

My point is that size does matter.

Of course you wouldn't know that.

Not subby, but I'd be ever so grateful if you would submit a headline with an ellipsis to show the class how easily it is done

Looks like Neil did something else on his face.

1 to 2 meter rocks in orbit =/= a moon I have to be able to pitch a tent on it, in order for it to be a moon.

No one of these minimoons sticks around for very long.

Well, then they don't farking matter at all, now do they?
