Why is Mercury considered a planet when Pluto is not?
The reason why I'm picking on planet Mercury, is because it is just a tiny, hot, barren, dry, airless rock with a gravitational pull so weak it can't even retain an atmosphere! Yeah, this is one cool planet, eh? It has the biggest temperature differential than any other planet in our Solar System. This little rocky area acts more like a punching bag for various types of meteors and comets, by looking at the surface.
The bottom line: If you are going to pick on Pluto for being a frigid rock that only serves frozen doughnuts to the galactic space cops, why not give Mercury a few good kicks to the groin while you're at it? LOL!
