Dude nobody watches MTV anymore. F**k that channel.

Everyone watches VH1, and eventually nobody will watch it anymore either.

Any rock music that came out between 1979-2002 is now considered Classic Alternative and it's this god awful broth of random pop-rock and easy listening horse shit. The best thing for finding good music on TV is to just turn it off and use internet radio stations.

Name changes for the sake of name changes are stupid, but consider the totally related phenomenon where the word doesn't change, but its pronunciation does. Harassment, for instance, is now pronounced "HAIR-iss-ment" by a lot of people. Divisive is another one; we're hearing it as "di-VIH-sive" now. There are others out there (Google that shit -- people are passionate beings when it comes to simple preference), but at some point it seems we're not dealing with improvement or intellectual evolution ... it's change for the sake of change. Like Gaba's brontosaurus example, I think that's a major waste of time.

the debate is still going on in regards to Pluto's planetary status ... as of now, it remains a "dwarf planet"

this National Geographic article has some good information :
