    I’m assuming the temps are in Fahrenheit. Much hotter if in centigrade.

    As a Postal retiree, I know Mercury was the first mailman with wings on his feet, a logo stolen by FTD. Sorry, no delivey on Roman Holidays

    Interesting that “messengers” were so important to the ancients that the profession had a deified representative. Hermes/Mercury was one of the 12 Olympians, and ranked right up there with primal forces like the weather, the sea, love, etc.

    I guess Doctor Mel isn’t counting Pluto as a planet either…

    ..though Pluto is now a Kuiper belt object,I say it should be granfathered in as a planet…I mean,come on…Disney World isn’t a world,but we still call it one…

    I thought the planet Mercury was named after the ancient god of 4 wheeled chariots. Come to think of it, that god recently got demoted too, just like Pluto.

    The planets first name was Freddy, wasn’t it?

    Varnes, yes. You just can’t see the moustache in these views.

    To me Pluto will always be a planet. It’s a sentimental thing.

    Mercury was not just the flower-delivery guy to the gods; he was a god in his own right: the god of boundaries and borders, and the “trickster” god. The planet also turned out to be something of a trickster–I am old enough to remember when astronomers were absolutely certain that Mercury was like the moon, presenting only one face to the sun. They were quite surprised, and had to do a lot of scrambling to explain when it was discovered that the planet actually does revolve on its axis at a rate different from its rotation around the sun. “Fool me once, shame on you… fool me twice… uh… won’t get fooled again!”

    Mercury is a dangerous substance. Just ask Mr. Quicksilver.

    Well I am now enlightened to know it orbits the sun just a bit faster than it rotates so there is some movement of the sun line on its surface but not by much.

    Didn’t the Beatles sing a song about Mercury, called “Five Years a Week”? Or did I take the wrong pills again?
