13. Pluto has moons; it has not cleared its orbit, and is not an IAU planet

and neither is QE2. Its orbit crosses that of Mars and the asteroid belt. Not only does it have close encounters with Earth (<0.04 AU), it has them with Vesta too (<0.02 AU): http://echo.jpl.nasa.gov/asteroids/1998QE2/1998QE2_planning.html
