It has been brought to my attention that yet another trans-Plutonian planet has been discovered, in January of this year, 2005 FY9. (Scroll down, the page is mainly about 2003 UB313.)

You know that if we accept all these new planets, we're going to keep finding 'planets' in the Kuiper Belt, the number of named planets in the Solar System is going to rise indefinitely, and 'Mother Very Thoughtfully Made A Jelly Sandwich Under No Protest' will slowly expand to book-length.

I propose: if it's significantly off the plane of the ecliptic, or if it's smaller than Mars/Mercury, it's a Kuiper Belt Object, it ain't a planet. Yes, I know, that means decertifying Yuggoth Pluto. I don't care. The Mi-Go can sue.

傾倒== keitou == (noun that can act as a verb with する) admiration, adoration, concentration on, idolizing
傾向 == keikou==  (noun) tendency, trend, inclination

Left radical is 'person' (人). Right radical is a Non-General Use character composed of 'head' and 'slumped person', meaning 'slump/fall to one side'. Henshall suggests remembering by association with 'change' (化), and as a mnemonic: 'Fallen person changes inclination of head.'
