How To Prep For A Meeting With Bill Nye, According To A Fashion-Savvy 9-Year-Old Girl

Bill Nye Letter

Fourteen years ago, when author George Dyson was gearing up to meet Bill Nye The Science Guy, his 9-year-old daughter Lauren had some very important advice for him. So important, in fact, that it merited a letter with starred bullet points. My favorite is “Don’t wear sweatpants at ALL. Jeans are OK sometimes.” Applicable to so many situations. [Boing Boing]

Bill Nye Makes His First Appearance On “Dancing With The Stars”

Bill Nye on "Dancing with the Stars"
What A Charmer!

Has there ever been a more pleasantly surprising addition to primetime TV than Bill Nye, The Science Guy? I think not. Look at him during his first live appearance on “Dancing with the Stars,” all soft-spoken and dapper and trying to teach everyone about science. So cute! “Even a blind squirrel finds an acorn once in a while,” he says, and then dances the cha-cha-cha to “Weird Science”. The judges didn’t love it — Len Goodman likened it to a waxing experience — and unfortunately Bill doesn’t seem long for the game… but man, if this wasn’t one of the most delightful 5 minutes and 16 seconds of my young life thus far. At least, until the judges started tearing him apart, at which point I started to feel like I, and he, might actually cry. Poor Bill. [Jezebel]
