Neil deGrasse Tyson found a way to ruin Christmas

Neil deGrasse Tyson declared that Pluto is not a planet and that indigo is not a color. Now, the acclaimed scientist is going after Christmas.

“Santa doesn’t know Zoology,” Tyson wrote. “Both male & female Reindeer grow antlers. But all male Reindeer lose their antlers in the late fall, well-before Christmas. So Santa’s reindeer, which all sport antlers, are therefore all female, which means Rudolf has been misgendered.”

Is nothing sacred to him?

Sometimes, I am more embarrassed to say I went to the same junior high school as him than saying I went to the same high schools as Jared Kushner and the dad from Seventh Heaven. Nah, I would not go that far.


It’s 10:10, do you know why watches are set to that time in ads?
November 23rd, 2020 under Neil deGrasse Tyson. [ Comments: none ]

I never noticed this before, but old-fashioned watches have their hands set to 10:10 in print advertisements. I am not the only one who didn’t know this until now; acclaimed scientist Neil deGrasse Tyson just realized it too.

“If Space Aliens studied Earth culture, they might wonder why the Time in printed ads is usually Ten Minutes After Ten,” Tyson wrote. “Could all these watches, and the people who wear them, be frozen in some Phantom Zone and need to be set free?”

Why are watches set at that time? According to FactMyth, “Watches and clocks are typically, but not always, set to 10:10 (or close) in advertisements. This is mostly for aesthetic reasons and simplicity. In simple terms, it gives room for graphical elements like the logo, and importantly it looks like a nice happy symmetric smiley face.”

I studied advertising in college, and none of my teachers ever told me this. All they ever said to me was shut up and pay attention. Maybe they did tell me, and I just wasn’t listening or paying attention.

Neil deGrasse Tyson’s dance moves are out of this World
November 18th, 2020 under Neil deGrasse Tyson. [ Comments: none ]

In order to be cool in the TikTok universe, you need to know how to dance so you can make a trending video. Neil deGrasse Tyson wants to be hip, so he shared a video of himself owning the dance floor. Now that the astrophysicist has, he wants to know, “So, can I get back to the universe now?”

I say just like he accepted Pluto back into our universe; they should accept him back into theirs.

BTW I went to the same Junior High School as him and Alfonso Ribeiro, and I know think Tyson is the best dancer from 141. Sorry, Carlton!

So much so, I think his people need to pitch him for Dancing with the Stars. I think he could win it all. That would mean that two alumni from JHS brought home the mirrorball trophy. That would be as awesome as the Cosmos.


Neil deGrasse Tyson has some news on the asteroid coming in contact with us
October 19th, 2020 under Neil deGrasse Tyson. [ Comments: none ]

Did you know there is an asteroid that will be coming into close contact with the Earth in two weeks? There is, and Neil deGrasse Tyson has an update on it.

“Asteroid 2018VP1, a refrigerator-sized space-rock, is hurtling towards us at more than 25,000 mi/hr. It may buzz-cut Earth on Nov. 2, the day before the Presidential Election,” Tyson said. “But it’s not big enough to cause harm. So if the World ends in 2020, it won’t be the fault of the Universe.”

I know he is all optimistic, but this is 2020. I would not be surprised if some of it found a way to break apart and cause some destruction to our planet.


An asteroid could collide with the Earth on November 2nd

Whenever someone says to me what else can happen in 2020. I tell them don’t ask because we don’t want to know. In the latest example of that, there is a refrigerator-sized asteroid that could come in contact with our planet on November 2nd.

Yesterday, when Neil deGrasse Tyson was on Late Night, Seth Meyers wanted to know if we should be afraid of it. The astrophysicist said that it is traveling at 10-20 miles per second. When it hits our air at that speed, it will be like it ran into a brick wall and will shatter into a million little pieces. That means no one will be hurt, but anyone in eyesight will get to see a beautiful meteor shower.

Something positive about 2020. Unless Tyson is wrong like he was with Pluto. Therefore, you want to make sure to vote before Election day. If the asteroid hits the United States, then you want to make sure your vote is counted before your city was smashed to smithereens because 2020.
