I Still Think It's a Planet

By using new instruments, scientists have determined that Pluto's atmosphere is some 50 degrees warmer than its surface. The difference leaves the atmosphere a balmy -180, so make sure to drink plenty of water when you go cloud surfing!

All that methane?

Those damn Plutonians should knock off the chili-dogs and sauerkraut!!

Well, if someone would simply light a match, the planet might be warm enough for life.

It just wouldn't have any after that...

I thought it was Methane + Oxygen = fire, Methane + ___ = fzzt?

There's oxygen there, it's just in liquid form, IIRC.

Which makes it so much more fun, honestly. If you could pull it off correctly you might be able to get a planet-sized FAB.

oh shizznit, that'd be big and bright (but not so much loud as you'd have to watch it from off-planet).
