Hmmmm where to start....

We dont know anything about the planets composition so we cant blame some random comet strike for its cold temp when its so far from the sun. We already know that unless its heart is a star itself that its distance would have led to space temps on its surface since it gets nothing from the sun in terms of heat, and its thermal energy from the core would have quickly been trapped by gasses turning to liquid or ice as it cooled off

Also, it would have had to have been a hell of a single impact to make the planet rotate, so while plausible its also likely that being so far out made it subject to a series of impacts during its formation that gave it the odd rotation since everything in the outer system would have been pulled to it. Hell, pluto could be the remains of the biggest one to hit it for all we know

Huh. Ifls is still around?
I remember when I used to Facebook I'd subscribe to them. Then they turned into shiatty shiatty "one weird trick" fake science and booted them.

It's this joke again.

I always suspected that Uranus was a planet (or the remains of a planet) that orbited the star that existed before our sun formed.

Whoever named Uranus, Uranus was a stupid childish asshole.

Yeah, that's my reaction every time one of these links rolls around. They have some decent stuff, but they are like the Mythbusters of science websites, they jumped the shark long ago...

Well, if this thread is for childish puns and double entendres then I'll just leave this here.
