Los Angeles, CA – According to a local news source, several witnesses claim to have spotted Bill Nye “The Science Guy” in a dumpster. When someone approached him to see if everything was OK, he told them he was just looking for his “next scientific thesis.”

“When I saw him, I was instantly very concerned something had gone wrong. Was he hurt? Lost? I had no idea. I was relieved when he told me he was only doing scientific research. Apparently, he has been digging for scientific ideas for decades in there. Crisis adverted!” commented one witness.

The shock of the scene prompted some onlookers to contact 911. Though, “The Science Guy” urged all emergency responders to leave him alone. He explained that he was a doctor and he didn’t need any professional help.

When Mr. Nye was questioned about his doctorate and where he got his degree, he replied, “It’s down here, I’ll show you!” and he promptly nose-dived back into the dumpster. He surfaced 23 minutes later checking to see if people were still around. When spotted a second time, he re-submerged himself until everyone left.

“I hope he finds what he’s looking for,” added one spectator. “We could use some good entertainment. That new Netflix show of his is a great laugh!”

    Is there a point to this babbling?

    • Jason Evans

      One of the talking points put out by climate deniers is that Nye is an entertainer and a buffoon who doesn’t know what he’s talking about. So attempts at humor like this babbling are usually repeats of that framing. In fact, Nye is an entertainer, has an engineering degree from Cornell, and is able to communicate science with great ease and lucidity. When you’ve taken as much physics as an engineer, you get the background to be able to talk about basic science and physics with ease. Conservative Christians are unhappy with science as it tends to offer them facts they don’t like to hear. Thus it is very easy for the climate denial groups to capture conservative Christians to the “Cause”.

        Bill Nye Sunday 4/23/17 on NPR:
        “Where you have a world view, [and] you’re presented with evidence that conflicts with your worldview, you[‘ve] either got to change your entire worldview which you’ve held for decades [or] your whole life, or deny the evidence. And denying the evidence is easier.”

        Explains the average ‘Murcan’s love of ignorance and religion.

        At least we agree he is an entertainer. A bachelors mechanical engineering degree (a field I am very familiar with) does not qualify anyone to say the absurd things he has said lately. If you want to take your sociological and science ideas from a man who hosted a kids TV show, go right ahead. At least Beakman had a talking rat.

          Whereas saying insane things is part of an Evangelical preacher’s job description.

    Nothing could be any trashier than that vulgar video he appears in, so the dumpster is relatively clean by comparison. It is truly embarrassing watching a man that age behaving like 7th grade science nerd who wants the cool kids to like him.
