Pluto Hate Mail

The Natural History Museum pissed off a lot of kids during the early days of the whole "Pluto is not a planet" debacle in 2000. Here is a selection of the virulent hate mail they received in response to this injustice. (Kottke, via @thoughtbrain.)

  • 1. "You are missing planet Pluto." We all are. :(

  • 2. Fighting words: "I disagree with you that Pluto is a Kuiber Belt Object."

  • 3. The existential argument: "If there are people who live there, they won't exist."

  • 4. I miss my friend!!!!!

  • 5. Finally, a reminder, and a warning, from Friends of Pluto.
