Re: Same wrong stuff, different day...
That is, that planets are nothing but cooled stars.

Well, the mass of the sun is approximately 332,950 times the mass of the earth. What happened to the remaining 332949/332950ths of the star's mass when it cooled to the earth's size ?

(And the sun is a reasonably modest sized star - there's way bigger ones out there).
