Does Size Really Matter?

It is a question which has scientists perplexed, but hopefully we on these forums can help answer the old (or is it new) age problem of whether size really matters?

It may smaller than others out there but still does the same thing as it's larger counterparts, right?

Some "scientists" want to take into account size, and I think this opens up a Jupiter-sized can of worms. Some think that 8 is the optimal number; some think that 12 is (surely 12 is just too much?)

Now, when you mention size, are you talking length or girth? Because girth is what's really important!

Planets can be wide as well as long. Or, is that some other celestial object...

It's what you do with it that counts.

If you guys are really worried about size then here's a suggestion to avoid embarassment -- just fold that thing in half and no one gets hurt ! Girth, can't help you there.

It all depends on the size of the well you dip your bucket into....

But seriously I think shape matters just as much as size. Potato shapes are just too strange. Everyone knows that the optimum shape is "pear shaped"!

Unless you consider a huge one with a lot of gas. But then those typically have rings around them.
