My.  How pretentious.
 
2014-03-14 10:13:48 AM
Did he give any fundamental forces a good ribbing?

No kidding; a can of aquanet served in milk jug is more than enough to get your drink on.

I gotta say, I don't see the draw of NDT. I don't dislike the guy, but I'm just not enamored in a way that so many people seem to be. I like his educational mission for sure, but he just doesn't seem like  a personality to me.
 
2014-03-14 10:31:46 AM
Well, like all scientists, he learned how to drink like a fish in grad school.

Nah..... NDT is just a slick mofo....  when dealing with uppity hipster pukes, act like an uppity hipster puke.  Pretentious is one of the last words I would use to describe him.

He's a true geek and has a lot of passion for what he does. He's pretty charismatic for a nerd.

That's true. My favorite NDT moments were when he called out Jon Stewart because their globe rotates backwards. You've really got to love what you do to notice that kind of thing.

I know a lot of 'true geeks' with a passion for what they do, so maybe I'm inured to it.

I'm not saying he isn't a classy motherfarker, but maybe he's drinking the wine because he's an alcoholic.

He's taken on the task of trying to educate the American public.

I don't begrudge him.

If I was trying to educate the American public, I'd probably be an alcoholic as well.

Neil DeGrasse Tyson is wearing out his welcome.

He and Chris Hardwick should disappear for a while.

He's funny, charismatic, and is challenging the frightening trend of anti-intellectualism in this country. He is trying to reinvigorate a new generation of people interested in the sciences. He has the connections to get the ball rolling, and is more or less the "frontman" of science to the masses.

It's the fermented tears of evangelists who try to debate him, so not technically wine.

Came for this, leaving to look at the same ads again..

Points!

He is just following in the footsteps of his hero, Jesus.

False, he's taking advantage of the scientific ignorance of the average American and his ethnicity to market himself as the new face of science. He's cashing in on the moronic love affair the Costanza-looking keyboard warriors and monocle-wearing hipsters have with him.

I'd love to see an anigif of NDT smelling the wine in the beginning of the episode.
 
2014-03-14 05:43:27 PM
Dude wants to make rap videos. But I suppose since he went with wine instead of malt liquor it could be considered "classy."

This (is not a bad thing).

It would be like questioning Budweiser donating water to badly affected areas of the country by natural disasters.

Hipster overload, I can't handle the utter pretentiousness of her and that room and so on and ughhh
I can understand wanting to want to spread the word and so on, but good god, Tyson. Don't give these people time.

Thank you for articulating how I feel about this pretentious douchebag guy so much better than I ever could.

I just figured people were fawning all over him since he's a black physicist.  Where's all the love for Alan Guth?

I don't know who he is either, but chances are when Farkers are tired of jerking off to Tyson they'll turn to him.
