tumblr’s reaction to pluto being voted a planet

Unofficial popular vote though. It’s like Pluto wins the high school prom queen vote and people think it means he’s the valedictorian.

It’s okay Pluto, science may have shunned you, but you will always have the people’s heart.

when my dad was in law school he knew these two girls who told him “people look at us like we were meat anyway so we decided to make some money off of it” so they wore bikinis and high heels and sold WAY overpriced hot dogs as a way of financing their education. they graduated summa cum laude with no debt and let me just say i have never been so inspired

NO WAIT
DO YOU SEE THE STORY HAPPENING HERE?!??!
THEY GO TO A PLANET OF SADNESS AND ARE ASKED TO HELP
SO THEY GIVE THEM A PRISM
A PRISM!!!!
SO THEY CAN MAKE RAINBOWS!!!!
BECAUSE RAINBOWS ARE HAPPINESS
AND THAT’S NOT ALL
BECAUSE SPOCK IS IN HIS LAB DOING SCIENCEY THINGS BEFORE THE PRISM PAGE
WHICH MEANS THAT DORK WAS RESEARCHING HAPPINESS
CAN YOU IMAGINE!?!? OMG IT WAS PROBABLY BONES’ IDEA
SPOCK WAS ALL, “If you control your emotions, you could conceivably be happy at any time you chose.”
AND BONES WAS LIKE, “THAT’S NOT HOW IT WORKS YOU HOBGOBLIN! IN FACT, YOU WOULDN’T KNOW HAPPINESS IF IT POPPED OUT OF A TEST TUBE AND SAID ‘HELLO.’”
AND SPOCK GETS MIFFED LIKE, “YEAH RIGHT I’LL FIGURE OUT THE SECRET TO YOUR STUPID HAPPINESS.”
AND HE SAT IN A LAB FOR DAYS ON END ONLY TO DECIDE THAT THE ANSWER WAS

FUCKING RAINBOWS!!!!!

"When I was about 20 years old, I met an old pastor’s wife who told me that when she was young and had her first child, she didn’t believe in striking children, although spanking kids with a switch pulled from a tree was standard punishment at the time. But one day, when her son was four or five, he did something that she felt warranted a spanking–the first in his life. She told him that he would have to go outside himself and find a switch for her to hit him with.

The boy was gone a long time. And when he came back in, he was crying. He said to her, “Mama, I couldn’t find a switch, but here’s a rock that you can throw at me.”

All of a sudden the mother understood how the situation felt from the child’s point of view: that if my mother wants to hurt me, then it makes no difference what she does it with; she might as well do it with a stone.

And the mother took the boy into her lap and they both cried. Then she laid the rock on a shelf in the kitchen to remind herself forever: never violence. And that is something I think everyone should keep in mind. Because if violence begins in the nursery one can raise children into violence.”
