    Default Is anyone else sick of Uranus?

    I mean really people...haven't we all gotten ourselves in deep over Uranus? Uranus, I'm sure, has a purpose...annnnnd perhaps Uranus is liked...or even loved by some...but I have a problem with it. Saturn has its rings, Jupiter is huge and Pluto has a cartoon character name...thus they are appealing. Now if Uranus has rings around it, is gigantic or there is a cartoon character named after it...now you would have my attention. Mars captures a lot of attention what with the exploration...but does anyone reaaaally wish to send a probe to Uranus? I think not. We've put a man on the Moon, but no one ventures to Uranus. Uranus is even ignored in mainstream media. There has been "Marvin the Martian", "My Favorite Martian"...but not even Steven Spielberg wishes to give Uranus so much of a glance.

    Think about it people...what has Uranus done for you lately?


    If you have friends or relatives living in Uranus, tell them this...40% of all Canadians think Uranus is evil.

    (Yes I realize Uranus was not taken care of properly in the title of this thread...but do I really wish to hear about taking care of Uranus??? I think......not.)

    Hmmm...I'm shocked you've made investigating Uranus such a priority. Good for you!

    Have you been visiting your buddies on Vancouver Island. I personally wouldn't want to touch Uranis, so let's not go there. Besides it's too far.

    What was Uranis named for anyway.

    Thanks for the levity.

    What does the Starship Enterprise have in common with toilet paper?

    They both circle Uranus, looking for Klingons.

    Give it some time, Stayback. I'm sure FOX will come up with a humm-dinger of a reality show on this topic sooner or later!

    Stayback, You are not just hilarious, but your timing in starting this thread was impeccable. By the way, if Uranis has rings around it you may want to see someone about it.
