Some silly college educated fools sat around on their brains and they decided to "downgrade" Pluto to a "dwarf planet" or "minor celestial body". Why? Because it's small? Woo hoo big freakin' deal! Perhaps it's because Pluto's orbit is eccentric.

It still orbits the sun!!! It's a chunk of rock!!! It's a planet!!!

These "Scientists" dud this to make themselves look good. They were probably do bored sitting around looking at stuff that's already been looked at thousands of times before they had to invent something to spend grant money on.

You do realize there are thousands of rock orbiting the sun, right? They're called asteroids. And four of the planets are pure gas. It's not the size, it's that it hasn't cleared out its orbit. You should be glad that scientists have the decency to admit and correct their mistakes rather than warping their evidence to fit their conclusion.
