I thought of an an idea to get people vaccinated: a conspiracy theory about a pandemic for depopulation purposes. Duh, of course there's a secret government plan to kill all of the scientifically illiterate people; better hurry up and get vaccinated.

That's sciencey - but shows Neptune and Pluto at the same distance from the sun - which was true for a few years about 20 years ago.  Also it's in 2D and sort of implies a solar system that is flatter than it really is... which isn't much of a stretch.

Given the scale and proportions the image is probably accurate.

It's a cool image, but the logarithmic scale should be kept in mind.

Logarithms.  Pshaw.

Embedding them was a mod that they removed (at least temporarily) when they brought the forum back up.

The same folks who named the Leelenisaurus and Muttaburrasaurus, no doubt.

Muttaburrasaurus is actually named after the place where it was found - Muttaburra, QLD.
