So, today Pluto became a "dwarf planet." Every textbook, solar system toy, and map of the Milky Way is now officially obsolete. A lot of people are dissapointed, still others are relieved, and I am simply shocked. Shocked that I was able to be alive for one of the most defining moments in space history. But its really just our version of space history, isn't it? I mean it's not like, if there is sentient life out there, those beings would actually follow our system of solar judgement. If Martians, Plutonians, and species from other solar systems actually exist, I doubt they would find our version of what a planet is to be acceptable. Of course, the Plutonians would be dismayed and outraged. But putting aside the idea of a war with Pluto, we can safely assume that this will be one of space history's most remembered moments. And anyone reading this blog is lucky enough to have lived to witness it. |~~RFTRTM -- Random Fact that Relates to Me~~| Pluto'
On Saturday, my family and I will be going to Los Angeles, CA to watch TV show tapings and tour famous film studios. Personally, I saved up money to pay for my ticket to the Warner Bros Deluxe Studio Tour, a five-hour, $150 tour that goes far behind the scenes of moviemaking. Not only do I get to see prop and costume warehouses and possibly meet stars, but the included lunch gives me the oppurtunity to dine with famous people! Because my family's tour--which starts at the same time--is the regular VIP tour, and it only lasts 2 1/2 hours, they will just have to find something else to do for the other 2 1/2 hours while I enjoy an in-depth technical tour of filmmaking.

That will be cool to see.
