A little Sherlock Holmes for the blog.
Yesterday, I had the opportunity to get to meet Bill Nye. He came to a college in my area. I cannot tell you how happy I was to see that “Bill Nye the Science Guy” is very much how Bill is in real life. He’s incredibly passionate about science, entertaining, and concerned with the future of science and its interaction and role with humanity.
I think a good sense of the measure of a person comes at Q&A’s in these situations. And unfortunately, the college that hosted the event did not screen the questions. (Yikes-o-rama). He tacked negative attitudes and perspectives with tact, knowledge, and of course, signature quirkiness and humor.
Also, the most important question of all was answered for me:
Q: How many bowties does Bill Nye have?
A: Roughly an amount around 250.
P.S. Sorry about the lack of pictures. As you can imagine, it was an event I wanted to take in, and appreciate. Hope to talk to you all, soon.
Question: Bill Nye, what do you think is the best way to make kids interested in science?
Bill Nye: Blow stuff up.
