let’s not forget that ‘fandom’ is ’fanatic domain’ shortened

UNF IS AN ACRONYM!?!
WHAT IS HAPPENING
Actually, the suffix -dom comes from the Old English word dōm, meaning decree or judgement, which is also where we get the word doom!
the word “sabotage” is p much short for “fucking shit up with a wooden shoe”
fucking shit up with a wooden shoe
oh my god
well wooden shoe look at that
I’M FUCKING CRYING AT THAT PUN BE MY FRIEND PLEASE
I knew this from Star Trek!
Shut the fuck up about Pluto
When we learn new facts, we have to reconsider our systems of categorization. Science adapts to new information—in this case, the increasing number of other Kuiper belt objects we’ve discovered, including ones bigger than Pluto. They’re not new planets, so neither is Pluto. Not to mention the orbital behavior.
It’s still there. It’s still called Pluto. It’s just a Kuiper belt object.
Science adapts to new facts. This Pluto nostalgia isn’t cute and it has an undercurrent of anti-science, anti-intellectual backwardness. Get over the outdated models you learned in first grade and learn something new about the goddamn solar system, because the solar system is exciting and we learn amazing new things about it literally every single day.
The universe doesn’t give a fuck about your grade school nostalgia.
why don’t we just… make them be considered planets too?
Fuck Pluto nostalgia, I still miss Ceres.
