    Christians, Muslims, and Jews all enjoy a barefooted woman in the kitchen but a true follower of the way is enlightened enough to know all stories have a purpose...

    Gaea also known in Roman circles Terra is a very important part in mythology and to forget the stories, well let say I am not your typical mind and believe we must honor the stories.

    Name of this planet is English and German mixed if I am correct and that is how we have Earth.

    I say call it old lady and be done with it...

    Jupiter and Uranus as well. All four of the gas giants are known to have rings.

    It's been credibly speculated that Mars' moon Phobos will eventually break up, and become a similar ring around Mars.

    Well, I learned a few things and it didn't hurt anyone to have a chat without arguing.
    When you can spell "definitately," I'll start worrying about what you consider stupid.

    Lucky for us earthlings that they didn't name the planet "Uranus".
