    I always like Pluto the best even if it is not a planet anymore. In my mind it was always a planet. Why do I like it? Because of the mystery of it. I love mysterious planets.

    I hate cockroaches because they give me the creeps!

    Thanks, Nita. Looks like you are a Pluto lover who was disappointed when Pluto was classified as a dwarf planet. Cockroaches are creepy but here are my choices:
    1) I like Saturn very much but I simply love Venus 🙂
    2) I love everything about the Harry Potter books but I think the Goblet of Fire is a notch below the others, because right from the beginning we knew that the Tri-Wizard Tournament was just a magic competition. Only the climax was unexpected.
    3) Mosquitoes. I hate the bloodthirsty creatures!
    I am neutral with regard to Pluto 😐 For Pluto fans, here is the status of Pluto according to the International Astronomical Union(IAU):

    From its discovery in 1930 until 2006, Pluto was counted as the Solar System’s ninth planet. In the late 20th and early 21st centuries, however, many objects similar to Pluto were discovered in the outer solar system, notably the scattered disc object Eris, which is 27% more massive than Pluto. On August 24, 2006 the IAU defined the term “planet” for the first time. This definition excluded Pluto, which the IAU reclassified as a member of the new category of dwarf planets along with Eris and Ceres. After the reclassification, Pluto was added to the list of minor planets and given the number 134340.

    1) Mars. I am a fiery man.
    2) The Sorcerer’s Stone. I don’t even read Harry Potter, so the first one is the obvious choice.
    3) Rats. We have enough of them. 🙂

  4. Rajesh says:

    1) I like venus the most as it is brighter than others and it symbolizes love and beauty.
    2) I have not read Harry potter books.
    3) I hate flies because they irritate us a lot when I am deep into something…
