Miscellaneous Musing #44

If we can demote Pluto from the status of a planet, why not Europe from that of a continent?  My proposed boundary between the peninsula (or subcontinent) of Europe and the remainder of Asia runs from the Baltic Sea to the Courland Lagoon to the Neman River to the Shchara River to Vygonovskoe Lake to the Oginsky Canal to the Yaselda River to the Pripet River to the Dnieper River to the Dnieper Estuary to the Black Sea (whence it would follow the current boundary between Europe and Asia Minor, the latter of which really ought to be known as Anatolia—but that's the subject of another geographical musing).
