BREAKING: Here’s the tweet that could lead to a new grand jury in Ferguson, MO.
#Ferguson: @shaunking took screenshot of tweeter @thesusannichols who claims to know juror on #MikeBrown #DarrenWilson grand jury & appears to be receiving leaked information. King says that within seconds of posting this, her friends told her to delete it & she did but not before it was screenshotted. She has since deleted her entire account but King says they checked & she is indeed a #STL resident w/ years’ worth of tweets from there. “If true, her tweet not only reveals a leak in the grand jury, but gives us an ugly glimpse into how things have gone so far. This person who posted it on twitter & her contact on the grand jury must be fully & completely investigated & removed if it’s true.”-@shaunking
Y’all better reblog the fuck outta this post it on facebook, twitter, IG, myspace, friendster, everything get this information out
when people try to argue with you about something you clearly know more about
Pluto becoming a planet again has really taught us that if we complain hard enough about something, we can change things, even on a planetary level
except it’s not a planet again, no amount of complaining is going to change the actual facts and that’s a damn good thing
Summary of every episode of Steve Harvey Family Feud ever.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: Fuck Pluto.
Pluto is not important at all and if it hadn’t been declassified, none of these obnoxious kids who don’t understand how science works would give even half a shit about it.
Literally the only thing anyone would remember Pluto for was leading to one of the scariest moments on The Magic School Bus.
No Arnold! I know you needed to chill out, but this is too far!

okay so for everyone who doesn’t know, in 2006 the International Astronomical Union created a set of standards for what constitutes a planet, it’s a astronomical object orbiting a star or remnant of a star that:
1) is massive enough to be rounded by its own gravity
2) is not massive enough to cause thermonuclear fusion
3) has cleared its neighbouring region of planetesimals
This means asteroids don’t count because they’re not spherical, the sun doesn’t count because it’s causing fusion, the moon doesn’t count because it doesn’t orbit the sun, and Pluto doesn’t count because it has not cleared its region of planetesimals
It’s pretty clearcut and dry, it’s very similar to viruses not being alive because they have no way to reproduce on their own despite fitting all the other categories
And it’s fine that Pluto isn’t a planet! It’s a great way to show that science is always changing! And Pluto is still super neat as a dwarf planet, you can still love Pluto just as much and absolutely nothing has changed about it except that scientists use a different word that better describes it to talk about it. You can even look at its new peers, the other dwarf planets Eris, Ceres, and Makemake. Ceres was also originally classified as a planet, got reclassified to asteroid, and is now classified as a dwarf planet, so it’s been through an even bumpier ride than Pluto
Really guys, science did not steal Pluto from you. Pluto is still out there and still the exact same. If Pluto could feel Pluto would probably be pretty upset that people are getting mad at scientists over this since scientists were the ones who discovered it just 84 years ago. If not for scientists no one would even know Pluto existed
Pluto is no less important as a dwarf, and honestly it’s probably waaaaay more important now than it was as a planet since it represents an advancement in our understanding of space and the solar system and is the first in a whole new class of objects
and if you don’t think that’s the tightest shit you can get out of my face
