    I actually use a variation of this line with patients. I say when someone asks me if anyone else feels anxiety, depression, stress like they are, "I'd worry more about someone who didn't!"

    I have a shoulder bag I always carry with "Jupiter" embroidered on it. It's provided me with so many smartass jokes over the years....: A gas giant right next to Uranus.

    I'm amused when scientist types try to claim the planet is pronounced differently, to avoid titters from the audience. (Titters is another giggle inducing word.)

    This thread is awesome! Being a relative n00b, I've only just discovered it, and binged the first 13 pages. My fam thinks I've finally gone insane because of the insane giggling.

    According to Wikipedia:
    The pronunciation of the name Uranus preferred among astronomers is /ˈjʊərənəs/,[2] with stress on the first syllable as in Latin Ūranus, in contrast to /jʊˈreɪnəs/, with stress on the second syllable and a long a, though both are considered acceptable.[f]

    Also:
    Consensus on the name was not reached until almost 70 years after the planet's discovery.

    But for other reasons than the one which seems obvious...
