'cause smart people are discussing about it and some think it should be.

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/science/is-pluto-about-to-be-reinstated-as-a-planet-9769753.html

Should it or is it just an uncool asteroid?

No. I'm getting sick of people raising a fuss over this. It's been 8 years. Just get over it. You don't really care anyway.

If Pluto is a planet, you kind of have to include a fair number of other TNOs, and large bodies of the asteroid field, too.

It's too round to be an asteroid. I think it's a rogue moon.

That's no moon...

this stuff has gotten pretty annoying

i'm not an expert but it doesn't dominate its orbit and there are tons like it and there's not a ton to make it special from other kuiper stuff so i think really the answer should be no

If Pluto is a planet then Ceres, Haumea, Makemake, and Eris should be too. Hell, Eris might be bigger than Pluto and if it isn't it's at least close enough in size that it's debatable.

People get so excited about this question, but it is of literally ZERO consequence. People try and make out as if whether Pluto is a planet or not is a big scientific question, as if we might say "OH! New evidence has come to light which might indicate Pluto IS a planet after all!" when really all the debate is is:
"Shall we call it a 'planet'?"
"Maybe, what does that mean?"
"Nothing really, just we'd refer to it as a 'planet' in conversation."
"Oh... so it the term doesn't really denote much of significance?"
"Not particularly..."

It's like when people go on about how a tomato is a fruit, except this debate is even more pointless as 'planet' is such a vague term, whereas 'fruit' at least has a precise biological meaning.

It makes them feel smart and trendy. Same crowd that makes Schroedinger's cat jokes at every opportunity because they saw a post about it on I Fucking Love Science's facebook page once, despite not actually understanding the thought experiment.

Yes, but education experts seem to think that stupid bullshit is a good way to make children learn things.

Well, the current best guess is that the number of TNOs that would qualify as planets(if the definition of a planet was altered to insure Pluto was included), we'd have somewhere like 200 planets in the Solar System.

It's a dwarf planet, Callisto, Titan, Ganymede, Io, The Moon, Europa, Triton, and Eris are all larger than pluto so we'd have an interesting conversation on our hands.

When I was in school I was taught that Pluto was a planet so yes it should be reinstated.

We had "My Very Easy Method Just Speeds Up Naming Planets"

An institution like that needs preserving.

"My Very Easy Method Just Speeds Up Naming" still works grammatically though

Well in that case they're a loser nerd, not a trendy one. All the cool nerds wear thick rim glasses without lenses and love pokemon.

If you want to class Pluto as a planet, then there'll be a lot more planets in our solar system. There are quite a few other bodies of rock the size of Pluto. It's just like the difference between a rock and boulder.
It'd be nice if people could stop having hissy fits about it.
