    Maybe Mars will bail them out and take a 50% stake in the business.

    Nope, he'll never die. Hes' still hanging with Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, & Jim Morrison. I believe that "planet" Mercury, like Pluto, was demoted (or perhaps it was consumed by Sol). We need a sequel to the following:

    I honestly actually almost shat in my shorts thinking something had happened to the planet.

    I looked at the first 20 second or so of that youtube. Is it really true what they say about the youngsters and teenagers in America ? :(

    You should really watch at least the first 60 seconds. The video is actually very entertaining. It turns out that these LG15 videos were staged (ie LG15 was actually an actress hired to perform these videos).
