New Planet?

Scientists recently discovered a new planet-sized object orbiting our sun in the distant Kuiper Belt. It is three times as far away from the sun as Pluto.

Should this new object be classified as our tenth planet?

Yes
44(52.4%)
No
40(47.6%)

If it is classified as a planet, what should it be named?

Comments

Elements 92, 93, 94, and 95 are named "Uranium", "Neptunium", "Plutonium", and "Americium". It's only logical the planet be named "America".
Now that wouldn't spark up too much controversy.
America should just go get it's own planet and move to there before it messes up anything else. It would be doing the rest of the world a favor! XD

Were you aware that other nations benefit because the US has a strong economy? In free trade, we're all tied together (the Great Depression in America effected Europe and many other nations in the world). As far as the world economy is concerned, the all but need us.

hmmmm

Are you aware that free-trade has caused a lot of the poorer countries to become poorer?

Actually, the planets are named after elements, but after the gods of Roman mythology. The elements have nothing to do with them, as you probably know.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess that they were joking, as you probably know. Seeing as how the previous three outermost planets are Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto--the same order as the elements appear in the periodic table--logically, America would be next. Obviously for many complicated and extremely simple reasons, this would be a very stupid idea (that would never happen, btw).

And the US needs the rest of the world's economies just as much as they need ours *cough* China *cough*

AND just to be an anal retentive jerk, Saturn, Earth (nor Gaia), and Uranus were not gods.
