This user submitted this in QA, got closed, and resubmitted it in QA. I told him to post as a tip but apparently he didn't realize some explanation should be added. Or, the important part, THAT IT SHOULD WORK!
There are only 10 types of people in the world, those who understand binary and those who don't.

There was a thing on the telly recently that stated it had been voted back in as a planet.





True fans never gave up hope.

That's democracy for you!
Life is like a s**t sandwich; the more bread you have, the less s**t you eat.

That is such a coincidence because I've just been voted in as a planet too.
Very cool. I hope to be voted in as a Sun one day so I can go by the name Apollo.
It's such a cool name.
Plus then all you people will have to rotate around me and I'll be the center of your Universe.
Yes, the sun is the center of the Universe.
I preemptively struck on your future humor that I didn't know that the sun was the center of a solar system. Wham!





back.....away.....from.....the.....keyboard......





If he's the center of the universe, then technically shouldn't the keyboard back away from him?





Maybe it can't because the gravitational pull is so strong.





Well, then it's time to invent an escapeassist rocket for a keyboard. Or honestly, maybe you should just let it collapse into him... If you add enough keyboards (And divert the entire manufacturing capacity of the human race to this for several million years), you could turn him into a black hole.
I don't know where this is going, but my gut tells me it's just one punchline away from being funny.

Every time planets or orbits or space or universe or anything astronomical then there is the required mention of the 7th planet in our solar system.
We really need a rename on that planet, don't you think?





It was renamed... In 2620. Don't you watch Futurama?





I haven't watched Futurama, because I boycotted The Simpsons in Season 2 and haven't watched anything by Matt Groening since. I know. Pretty cool, huh?





This whole chain of riffs was great though. Way to go out there.





You know, as someone who's been messing around in Project Euler lately and could now code a Sieve of Eratosthenes* in his sleep, that algorithm makes me cry a little inside.
(You know, it's easier to code the algorithm than to spell that guy's name...)





All odd numbers are prime, right? Let me check. Yep, all odd numbers are prime.
Makes it a lot easier to count by the primes.
Also, are there more odd numbers or even numbers? I know the answer, but it's a puzzle for you.

I dunno, let's find out... You start naming odd numbers, and I'll start naming even numbers... Whoever can name more of them wins!
By the way, is Infinity odd or even? I mean, it's a sideways 8, and 8 is even... But since it's sideways, that's a little odd, right? It's also kind of a car, except they spell it oddly, so maybe the original spelling is even... My head hurts...

Please, stop! You're hurting me!

Not really: there are an infinite quantity of each.
The way we define "more", "less", and "equal" for infinite quantities is as follows. For two collections A and B (say A are the even numbers and B are the odd numbers) we say that
If you can associate every item in A with a unique item in B, and vice versa, then A and B are the same size.
If you can associate every item in A with a unique item in B, but not vice versa, then B is bigger than A.
If you can associate every item in B with a unique item in A, but not vice versa, then A is bigger than B.
In this case you can associate every even number n with the odd number n+1, and you can associate every odd number m with the even number m−1 (assuming 0 is even) so therefore there are just as many odd numbers as even numbers.

This is terribly incorrect, because I stopped counting on an odd number, so there are more odd numbers than even. Thank you for your input.





You might get a more accurate result if you start at infinity and count backward.

Great idea. I'm working on this now.





Chuck Norris already did it.
