    Secret rogue planet may be hiding behind Neptune

    Does Earth have a new friend? An astrophysicist says it's likely that an as-yet undiscovered planet exists on the dark fringes of our solar system, messing with the orbits of celestial bodies in the Kuiper Belt, just beyond Neptune. Rodney Gomes says the new planet could be anywhere from half to four times the size of Earth and is likely a rogue planet that floated over from another solar system. Other space scientists say Gomes' findings may be a lot of hot air and aren't sure his calculations support his theory. Buzzkills. We already lost Pluto. Stop playing with our hearts. Give us the new guy.

    Must be nice being a liberal 'round these parts, not having to worry about silly things like forum rules and all.

    Putting Baio aside....

    I'd surly like to understand why, in your mind, space exploration isn't political? NASA is funded by the taxpayers.

    Gingritch wants to put a colony on the Moon
    Obama defunded NASA
    Bush wanted to go to Mars



    If this thread upsets you, please tell the mods to move it to the science forum....I ain't gunna be pi$$ed at you for crying about it.


    OR you could simply not contribute to the thread if you have nothing to contribute.


    we all know that will never happen.


    So, Scott Baio is the new boy in the neighborhood, he lives downstairs...and its understood that he is put there specifically to be in charge...Nahmean?

    Little known factoid, in that we have spent over 8 trillion dollars on the space program... imagine what we could have done with that money.

    Is that political????

    There Is Life On Other Planets

    The Universe Didn't "Just Happen" A Supreme Being Or Maybe Many Supreme Beings Created The Universe.

    Anybody That Believes We Are Alone In That Vast Universe Is An Ass Hole.

    Something Or Somebody Set Off The Big Bang.

    Actually you made the post, and put it in here, so it falls on you to exlpain why this story is political. I actually agree that if we were talking about funding NASA or taking a trip to the moon, that would be political. But you are constantly posting anything and everything any nutjob says in here.

    How is the supposed discovery (which most of the scientific community rejects) of a 9th planet political? I think the political forum should be for politics, not whackjob conspiracies.

    Yes, I would definitely consider that political. But that has nothing to do with the subject of this thread. This thread is about what some idiot in Brazil is saying, and something which the scientific community has said there is hardly any evidence to support.

    cool story.

    Here is a tip, If you don't have anything to add, don't add anything. If you think this thread somehow violates rules, report it to a mod.

    if you wanna cry, whine, kick and scream...by all means keep it up.

    Rent "Zapped" on DVD.

    Are you that grumpy old man who sits in his arm chair all day and acts as a kill joy?

    Personally I think anything related to space exploration is political. It's of interest to some people, just because it isnt to you it doesn't mean we wish to hear you whine about it. You aren't that important ;)

    Ok, so by that logic we can make anything political. Hey, I will post a recipe for green beans and site farm subsidies as to why it is political.

    Oh, and the reason Gingritch wants to put a colony on the moon is so that we can continue our warhawk-ways and attack those alien bases that are on the moon now.

    Of course by that logic anything can be political. Its not a valid question as to why the thread is political.

    If one doesn't think the thread is interesting to those who might want to contribute, or somehow violates forum rules they can either report the thread or stay the fukc out of the conversation.

    I for one think space exploration is pretty political. Obviously some haters don't. My advice is written above.

    This is a political forum but so what? Sometimes there are things that are interesting to talk about. Do we want to have an outer space forum or a this forum or a that forum for every imaginable topic? There simply can't be a forum for everything. I think this one is better than the main forum for these kinds of things.

    It's a topic that's interesting and important to one of the regulars. A lot of us throw up stuff that's not strictly political from time to time. A little indulgence is not entirely uncalled for in those instances.. If anything gets too wacky then it won't have any legs anyway.

    In the world of Patsfans.com political message board, ant farts are considered political... so why not rogue planets.

    If people did not respond and argue the point, it would not become political..

    Obviously all the other planets from this one's old solar system kicked it out, that's why its here. We should call it planet Wolfpack.

    Making fun of the Jets isn't political either. That doesn't make it wrong.

    Sure must be nice being a liberal in this forum, you know, not having to worry about forum rules and all. Personal attacks against conservatives are perfectly allowable, but look at a liberal cross eyed and your days of posting here are over.
    If someone started a thread in the political forum making fun of the Jets, that thread would get moved into a different forum where it belonged.

    Actually, I have more than a passing interest in space exploration, probably far more than you'll ever understand. But that doesn't change the fact that the potential (albeit mostly debunked) "discovery" of a 9th planet has nothing to do with politics, and there are other forums on patsfans.com where such a discussion would be more appropriate.

    If this was an isolated incident, I wouldn't say anything but this particular poster is constantly bombarding the political forum with these posts which are completely off topic.

    So you admit that it does not fit within the forum rules but will post it here regardless. And, if any one has a problem with that then they should report it? Oh and you try and pass the forum rules for obscenities by misspelling a word in what you think is a creative way.

    The mods on this board are either really nice or really stupid. My guess is that you think they are stupid.

    Go Mod :) He really pulled one over on you! Damn he is so smart.

    P.S. There is no rogue planet, this guy is an idiot. And, anyone that thinks there are alien bases on the moon is an idiot as well.

    Putting On My Moderator's Hat

    The occasional nonpolitical thread is fine in this forum, but please put OT before the title. This particular thread does not strike me as political, though if Obama comes out for the theory, I have no doubt that the Republicans will be against it and vice versa.

    I bet if HD started a thread called "Giving out free Bacon and $100 bills here!"

    the miserable one would complain, and of course his two little yapping dog sidekicks would be sure to follow.

    God this place has become such a toilet. Too bad, it doesn't have to be.
