The solar system is our sun and 8 planets (formerly 9, with Pluto). Our solar system is a tiny dot in our Milky Way galaxy, which is composed of LOTS of solar systems. Our galaxy is a tiny dot in the universe, which is composed of LOTS of galaxies. Hope that clears it up!

Pluto is not a planet anymore. google it. Its been like that for probably more than a year. Its what my teacher told me back ago. It has something to do with its orbit or something

@273 Pluto is much smaller than any other planet, and there are several other planetoids that are in orbit around the sun. Are they all planets too? Are there actually several hundred 'planets' in our solar system? Or shall we stay with the definition of 'planets are actually pretty big, and not, for instance, smaller than luna'.

There are so many shockingly stupid comments on this that I decided to just make a general one and not name names. Pluto has been labelled as a dwarf planet because it is much smaller than all the others. It is still a planet, but believe what you want. Sorry to burst anyone's bubble or anything.

I went to private school. Holy hell private school is difficult. I'd rather my kids get a lesser education in public school and maybe give them extra tutoring to teach them more than go what I went through.

As everyone else is saying its not public school's fault. All programs have their faults and they also all have their strengths. Public school may not delve as deep into the knowledge as private but private also OFTEN (AS IN NOT ALWAYS BIT SOMETIMES) produces adults who have difficulty in mainstream society because they feel all high and mighty. And while private does delve deeper a lot of if will not be used by the kids because they don't want to know everything and will go to university and forget more than half of the other stuff in time.

My boyfriend went to a private school whilst I am still attending my public highschool. I used to get jealous of his wealth and education but I've come to the decision that regardless of the price of resources, they're not useful unless you have the drive to reach your full potential. The problem with public schools is that because our parents aren't paying a large amount of money for our education, there is less pressure to make them proud. Alot of kids speak to me and others saying, "I'm stupid" or "I just can't do it", to which I reply, "you are NOT stupid, you just need to focus, be positive and don't hesitate to ask questions". Sorry if this was a bit long, it's just hurtful that people often categorize public school students as the 'stupid kids'.

I'm not sure what private schools you people are speaking of. You guys are making some really absurd and very uninformed comments in regards to private schools The school I attend has less than 20 percent acceptance rate, more than a third are on financial aid, and our average SAT score for the school is 2,100 (97th percentile). It has a Ivy/MIT/Stanford pipeline of 30%. Over 80% of our faculty hold an advanced degree. In all of our (small sized classes) we sit around a circular table (except for labs/lectures) where we're forced to interact with each other and the teacher. Most students take 10-15 courses in a year. You can even drop a course for independent study/research or participate in one of the many international programs offered. There are also post graduate/continuing education courses offered for students. We're required to participate in community service, athletics, outdoor programs, and other extra curricular programs. We have nearly 100 clubs/organizations. We also have to attend Saturday classes weekly (not in the form of detention/ends before noon). We have to participate in a very long seminar that discusses many important issues including sexuality, drug abuse, depression, stress, friendships, relationships, etc. Our school honors all faiths. We're required to attend at least two services each term to learn about and experience other religions. We have many exceptional and top notch studios for a wide array of art mediums (photography, painting, wood working, design, etc.) as well as an art gallery. It sits on nearly a nearly thousand acre campus. Its one of the greenest [environmentally-friendly] schools in the country. It has a library with over a 100,000 volumes. It has some of them most state-of-the-art athletic facilities in the country (gym staffed with professional trainers, nine-hole golf course, 20 athletic fields, 12 tennis courts, indoor ice hockey rink, etc). The premise of that ^ is that not all who attend private schools are retarded spoiled rich kids. You can't just buy your way into a good school. You HAVE TO keep up or they'll drop you. And I'm not saying that all public school kids are "stupid". Its just that most public schools cannot compete with a good private school. *shrug*

234- Your whole spill about your school makes it seem like you DO have to pay out the ass to be in there. And yes, good for you for being able to attend that school. But most kids aren't able to experience that luxury. So consider yourself lucky, I guess...

I agree with 234. If you don't meet a private school's standards, they'll kick you out. No idiot will be able to get in and stay in if they don't make the grades. Obviously there are very smart kids in public schools too, but they aren't getting the same opportunities as kids in private schools. That being said, my kids will still be going to public schools because private schools can be bad for your health. I'd get to school at 7:30am and get home at 10:30pm sometimes and still have to do my homework. There's no such thing as getting enough sleep in private school and your stress level is through the roof. To me that's not worth having a better chance at getting into a good college and not all good colleges are even hard to get into. I'm about to graduate from a public state college so my private school education before college was kind of unnecessary.

Do you want a goddamn medal? Your school is unique. Most private schools are more about the money than anything else. At a lot of schools, standards are low as long as you can pay. They have no standards to hold you to; they want your parents money and dont get if they boot you. Ive seen families at private schools whove been in and out of juvie, most of it school-related, and they cant boot any one of them because theyd lose the whole familys money. About intelligence? I recently transferred from a public to private school because we didn't have the money. I was the smartest guy at my private school. I don't even compare to the guys I know now.

234 - yeah, most private schools aren't like that. At least not where I live, yours sounds more like boarding school almost. Here you don't necessarily have to be "accepted" into the school, you just pay to go or go on scholarship. There's no financial aid and only so many scholarships are given each year. Then, the scholarships are the only thing you have to be accepted for based on both financial income and testing scores. Your school is clearly more prestigious than most, which is great and all, but it does mean that it makes a poor comparison. Besides all that jazz though, I don't think it matters which school system you're apart of for that one, I mean to not know the difference between universe and solar system is just lack of intelligence.

If he used a coma that would have been grammatically correct but I give him a pass since I rarely use correct punctuation on the Internet as well.

It's estimated to be about 7,000 years old. Not several billion as the evolutionist say but that is a lie. Mutations occurs when there is a loss of genes not gained genes.
