Yes, in the linked article, Mike Brown did say that this point of view is most prevalent with people working on the space mission to Pluto, so they're more emotionally invested in this classification.

Canadians are obviously smart :) Supposedly Canada and Germany built very thick roads with solid foundation - at a huge upfront cost, but little maintenance afterwards. The USA went the other way, with thinner but cheaper roads.

A big culprit is actually the number of heavy trucks that go on our roads. Much more than in Canada, I assume.

If you're referring to fugu as a delicacy, I think small amount of tetrodotoxin in its flesh is actually what causes the delicacy to be so prized. The reduced amount of toxin causes mild intoxication and tingling sensation that people want.

Wow! I learned something new. From Tales of Faerie:

Petrus Gonsalvus was given a wife-a wife selected for her beauty, not told what her husband looked like, and ordered to marry by the Queen. Yet, the couple got along, and may have grown to fall in love-in the illustration above, the resting of Catherine's hand on her husband's shoulder is a sign of affection.

They had seven children together-some of them with hypertrichosis (the only ones the public cared about).

The family attempted to live a normal life, but were exploited by a public that did not see those with differences as entirely human-tragically, the children who inherited their father's condition were all given away as gifts to other European royalty.
