Did you know that Uranus has a mass of something like six-point-eight x 10 to the eleven trillionth power tons?

couldnt resist. last year in earth-space science class groups got assigned to planets and had to do reports. of course there were a lot of uranus jokes but the funniest one was during it's formal report. he's up there like "uranus has a mass of approxamately six-point-eight x 10 to the eleven trillionth power tons" and trying, very unsuccesfully, not to crack up. the rest of the class and even the teacher made no effort to hold back.
