Hmm.  A picture or a link in the article of said rings would have been too much effort, I suppose.

If we keep probing Uranus, I hope someone's going to put a ring on it.

"if you had a bathtub big enough, Saturn would float in it. "

If you had a bathtub big enough and tried to float Saturn in it, it would collapse under its own weight into a porcelain cored waterworld with a hydrogen atmosphere comprised of what used to be Saturn
