Yes, I know that.

It could be real...
Many believe it is real...
NASA is now acknowledging that it could be real, based on a certain number of key "facts" they and other noted astronomers, have recently observed.

I am only pointing out that if it IS real, then one of the only possible explanations for why we haven't seen or discovered it yet is because it is orbiting the sun in an elliptical orbit, that is off center from the rest of the solar system, and is tilted at nearly 90 degrees against the normal planetary plane.

Its orbit carries it very far out to the extreme limits of our Suns influence before it swings back in close.

It goes so far out, the suns light can't reach it so it does not "appear" in our skies like the rest of our known planets... but as it swings back in closer, it starts to become more and more visible and more detectable... and this probably only happens once every 70,000 - 100,000 years....

People have been saying this for a long time and NASA have been saying it is nonsense, pseudoscience, paranoia, lies etc etc. Why are they now saying it's possible after years of calling it a conspiracy.

Because of recent observations in the Kuiper Belt suggest the existence of something large like a "Super Earth" type planet. A large rocky planetary body.

Go read the first post in this Thread. They have discovered 5 lines of "observable evidence" that they say, if you remove these... and pretend Planet X is there, then you create more problems then you solve but with the evidence there, it makes more and more sense to say "yes, planet X is there, and its real and its existence is the only explanation for this evidence" .. and the fact that they have observed 5 different aspects of evidence only gives it more credit for being real...

Maybe Planet X will bring the X-Men here. After all, the mere fact of the planet covering so much space and time probably forces its inhabitants to mutate on a whim to adapt. Every time some of them get off onto Earth, they are hunted down by Sentinels, therefore they don't really prevail and take over this planet. And if one feels too special for Earth, it will be a good idea to hop on the next time it comes around.

If you're actually offended by a label applied to cold, desolate space rock changing, you need to rethink your life.

And astronomers don't call it a planet because they understand how science works. The only people arguing still are the "I frickfrock999ing love science!" crowd online.

Eh... most of the earth's oxygen comes from the ocean. And they would have stood a better chance of taking the planet before we had nuclear weapons.

Revelation space spoiler (seriously, go read the book)
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
In the revelation space universe - the inhibitors are an ancient race of dormant machines that have installed beacons around the universe. When a civilization gets advanced enough to trigger a beacon - the inhibitors travel to them and annihilate their entire civilization to prevent ancient atrocities wreaked on the universe by even more ancient imperial space faring cultures.

Because for a long time people have been saying this without any evidence whatsoever, based on stupid alien conspiracy theories. Now they're saying it's possible because of observable data.

It's not rocket science. They do that too.

You mean the 90% of the general public who think it's a crying shame that those mean scientists took away pluto's status like that? I understand the reasoning, and I don't really care other then the nostalgia factor, my post was just a bit of fun and a half serious way to solve the endless back and forth between the scientists and the general public on pluto's status. Honorary planet status bestowed as a one time thing for pluto given it's history with people, with a scientific footnote at the end of any talk about pluto clarifying it's status would solve the issue for both sides. Or we could have the endless arguing between the general public who only care that the pluto they grew up calling a planet got demoted, and the scientists who are fixated on what it's called when it's just a word.
