Oh Bill... You're so dreamy...

Oh Bill... You're so dreamy...

I love Bill Nye. I LOVE Bill Nye. Bill Nye is a fantastic person. Bill Nye’s television show Bill Nye the Science Guy opened the eyes of thousands of children to the wonders of science! That’s one of the best things a person can do! Well listen, I didn’t write this post to gush about Bill Nye, though I could have. I wrote it to alert you to an important fact:

Every episode of Bill Nye the Science Guy is on Youtube.


I’d like to repeat that, because it is really important. And I’m going to do it in bold print this time.

Every episode of Bill Nye the Science Guy is on Youtube.

Let me put that in perspective for you. There are 100 episodes of Bill Nye the Science Guy, each covering a distinct topic. Now, the series is geared toward children, so it’s not the most serious, hard-hitting and sober show there is, but… who cares? It’s fantastic. Check out this episode list:

PS Ever wonder why Bill Nye is so awesome? Here’s a hint: he was taught by Carl Sagan at Cornell! See the influence one person can have?

Is the Eye of Nye stuff up? It sounds edgier and more grown up.

Also I heard he was kind of a jerk and dumped his fiance or something last minute. But his science is good!

Yes, the Eyes of Nye is up. I can’t comment (nor am I interested) in his personal life. But these things are usually more complicated than rumors suggest.

Also did you ever watch Battlebots? That was a sweet show. Bill Nye was like the science dude on that, too, I think.

Yes, it was definitely a sweet show. Nye was the “technical consultant” and I think I remember him interviewing people about how they constructed their robots. It was the best in the beginning before people really understood what the best ways to kill each others robots were. In the beginning you had huge diversity of robots – robots with pneumatic spikes that shot out (Vlad the Impaler!), robots with huge saws, and so on. After a while it was just robots that flipped other robots and those wedge shaped ones. Knockout by flipover is just not exciting.

Except for Son of Wyachi!! That was a robot with three or four hammers spinning around a central axis. None of the flipper bots could get close to it; they just got torn to shreds by the hammers.
