Bill Nye was basically the face of science when I was growing up, needless to say we jumped at the chance to see him speak at our alma mater. It was a somewhat disappointing, but still enjoyable talk that turned out to be more of a “yay science!” peptalk than the college-level lecture we were expecting. We had fun though, and it was incredibly surreal to walk around a campus neither of us had seen in six years.
How do two nerds spend the day after Valentine’s Day? Why listening to Neil deGrasse Tyson speak about the future of science in America, of course.
Oh, and if you were wondering, the future is pretty depressing.
