Yes, I saw that you quoted a search result, and I didn't re-quote it because a) the "quote" tool didn't capture it and b) I didn't feel like copy-pasting it since anyone reading can simply scroll up two posts and read it themselves. I responded to it because you posted the search result with no indication that you took it at anything but face value.

Vman455 — Okay, it just seemed odd.

Analyses of the Moon's time-variable rotations [!] indicate that the core is at least partly molten.

Does it stutter?
Maybe stutter isn't the word for 'speeds up and slows down'.

Pluto has 5 moons, so it must be a (dwarf) planet.

Given a mature space program, I think it would be worth setting up a space hotel or something simply to make one exist. Maybe in an halo orbit at a La

Big fleas have little fleas upon their backs to bite 'em,
And little fleas have lesser fleas, and so, ad infinitum.

And so it is with moons?
