A Prompt for Your Next Sci-Fi Novel

Why is it that each Friday I am too tired to write a coherent post?

Basically, what I want to say is--
a) there is a planet made of diamond;
b) there is a PLANET made of DIAMOND;
c) said planet is 4,000 light years away;
d) it has slighly more mass than Jupiter but is twenty times as dense;
e) it orbits a pulsar star that is 12.4 miles in diameter;
f) if we lived on this planet, we would be very old. Its year is two hours and ten minutes long.
--just in a really brilliant, profound way. But oh well. You may read more about the diamond planet if you wish.

It's like something out of a sci-fi, isn't it? People trying to get to a diamond planet and mine it or something?

It's amazing all the gems stowed away in the universe.
