Bill Nye - A Geek God is Born

Bill Nye's earliest childhood memory is throwing a rubber band-powered airplane, called the Sky Streak, and trying to figure out how to make it turn. So began Bill's life-long love of physics. After he left high school, Bill Nye studied mechanical engineering at Cornell University. He then went on to put his knowledge to work. Bill Nye did tons of cool stuff before he became America's favorite science guy, like designing flight control systems for Boeing and consulting on fighter jet designs. He still does these little "side projects" today.

Bill Nye - Being a Nerd Has Never Been This Cool

Bill Nye began his transformation from scientist to science guy when he won a Steve Martin look-alike contest. His win egged him on to try his hand at comedy at night, while working at as an engineer at Boeing during the day. Eventually he managed to combine his humor and love of science - voila, a science guy was born.

What if that ' conspiracy theory nut' holds a college degree? Would that make you believe them? AND WHAT EVIDENCE DO YOU HAVE THAT THE EARTH IS ROUND? You can't see it with your own eyes! Unless CGI pictures count....

I honestly think that if you believe the earth is flat, there is something fundamentally wrong with your way of thinking and how you decide whats true and whats not. so what your saying is that if we believe in the flat earth we have some kind of mental problem??? what I'm saying is that you're not a logical person and are easily manipulated if you do.   well im quite the opposite since i research both side of the theory by looking at even the debunks
