Who Does Jupiter Think It Is Anyways?

Jupiter thinks it’s so great. Just because it’s the biggest planet in the solar system. A gas giant… big whoop. The biggest gas giant we have. Whatever. We’re supposed to be impressed just because Jupiter has 64 moons. As if I care. I guess we should all just tremble in awe because Jupiter has this giant storm—many times bigger than the earth—which has been raging on for centuries and everyone calls the Red Spot. Jupiter acts so big just because it’s mass (which is greater than all the planets in the solar system combined) is so large that its gravity is unsurvivable; and the air pressure is so crushingly high that the many believe the planet’s core might possibly be a large diamond.

Okay. Those are pretty good reasons. Never mind.

  1. And it's named after the Roman equivalent of Zeus because...you know...Romans had to go and steal all the Greeks' Gods...unoriginal bastards.
