Where does this quote come from? Masses of 10 MJ are not exactly rare but near the planet/brown dwarf boundery (~ 13MJ) - the NASA news release does not mention any planetary masses, the two linked papers describe models between 1 and 6 MJ.
Wow - I came to ask where that line is, and Mister Science already has it covered. Good job!
It came from Randy, Describing Eternity.
Every thousand years
This metal sphere
Ten times the size of Jupiter
Floats just a few yards past the earth
You climb on your roof
And take a swipe at it
With a single feather
Hit it once every thousand years
'Til you’ve worn it down
To the size of a pea
Yeah I’d say that’s a long time
But it’s only half a blink
In the place you’re gonna be
“enormity”? Don’t think so…
Enormity != Enormousness
