William S. Nye is the coolest thing to happen to science since... well, ever. He's funny and smart and has a bow tie - oh, and he'll teach you the most amazing ways to blow stuff up (safely, of course). Check out the dirt on Bill Nye the Science Guy.

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.

O my lord i like i dont even know how but this summer my grandma got a new printer and one day i was printing an essay on Albert Einstein and the paper got jammed. So i reached my hand in but i didnt know that the printer automatically pulls the paper back in so i got my hand stuck in the printer. I was crying and it was horrible. And then like (((((POOF)))) my crush, Jordan Barchett, just appears at the door and he comes in and sees me. The look on his face was so funny that i forgot my hand was in the printer. Finally my adopted father Cane Plemmar got me out and i now have the word "intelligence" tattooed on my hand. Ironic....lol
