Neil deGrasse Tyson was almost a stripper
November 9th, 2023 under Kelly Clarkson, Neil deGrasse Tyson. [ Comments: none ]

Before Neil deGrasse Tyson was telling us how the sun shines, he almost showed us where the sun doesn’t shine.

That’s right. He told Kelly Clarkson on her talk show today that he was a dancer before he was an astrophysicist. And he needed some money. So his dancemates told him he could earn a few extra bucks stripping.

Therefore, he went to check out what they did. For their first dance, they moved their bodies to Jerry Lee Lewis’ Great Balls of Fire. And their balls were literally on fire. At that moment, he decided to tutor math to make extra money. And poor Pluto suffered for that last-minute decision. As did all the ladies who missed out on seeing his planets.

Can I tell I went to the same JHS as him? It never made sense to me because we didn’t turn out smart people. However, now it makes more sense that he went to the same elementary school as Steven Tyler and Alfonso Ribeiro. No offense to them, but we are just more about performing than brains in Riverdale.


Neil deGrasse Tyson reveals where he thinks Barbie Land is

Did you watch the Barbie movie and wonder where in the world Barbie Land is? You are not alone. Neil deGrasse Tyson wondered the same thing, so he studied the sky in the movie to determine its location.

Is it in Malibu? Nope, but it is in another sunny location. The astrophysicist wrote, “In Barbie the Movie, the Moon’s orientation places Barbie World between 20 & 40 degrees North Latitude on Earth. Palm trees further constrain latitude between 20 & 30 degrees.

“The Sun & Moon rose & set over the ocean.

“So if it’s in the United States, then Barbie World lands somewhere in the Florida Keys.”

This reveal almost makes up for Pluto not being a real planet. But not totally.


What is, Neil deGrasse Tyson got his own category on Jeopardy?

I have mentioned this before, but I am going to do it again. I went to the same Junior High School as Neil deGrasse Tyson. We might even have had the same science teachers. But only one of us barely passed that subject. And that was me.

So while we both went into the study of stars, his knowledge is much more important and interesting. That is why Jeopardy asked him to give the answers on the show with a category that is dedicated to the things he knows better than most people on Earth, The Universe.

It was not an easy category for the Jeopardy Masters and an impossible one for me. So while he went to PS 81 and had to travel to Manhattan to go to the Hayden Planetarium. My elementary school, PS 24, on the other end of Riverdale, had its own! Therefore, na-na-na! And yet he is the one that went into science and makes millions, and I only graduated because no teacher wanted to have me again!

Oh, and can we talk about the way he says Uranus? He says your-en-es, it is your-anus. Am I right?


Neil deGrasse Tyson got James Cameron to change a scene in Titanic
April 12th, 2023 under Neil deGrasse Tyson. [ Comments: none ]

James Cameron is anal about his accuracy. However, he missed something in Titanic. So Neil deGrasse Tyson let him know about it his mistake over and over again.

What did the Oscar-winning director do that irked the astrophysicist so much? He told Today that the filmmaker used the wrong sky “in that scene after she ditched her frozen dead boyfriend.”

Not only that, the sky they used was a mirror image of its other half. So for 15 years, deGrasse Tyson pestered Cameron, and he finally released a new take of that scene with the correct sky.

Now, can we get the Pluto denier to get Cameron to reshoot the ending with Jack (Leonardo DiCaprio) getting on the wood with Rose (Kate Winslet) since we now know it was possible for both of them to survive on it?


Words of Wizdumb from Neil deGrasse Tyson
March 31st, 2023 under Neil deGrasse Tyson, Words of Wizdumb. [ Comments: none ]

Neil deGrasse Tyson is a wise man, and he says things that make you think. His latest Words of Wizdumb are, “In a mirror, you can only kiss on the lips.”

I don’t know what it is about that deep thought, but it blew my mind. So I went over to my mirror to test it out. And let’s just say I am a good kisser! That, and my love life, is so sad that that was the only makeout session I have had in a really long time. So is it wrong that I enjoyed it so much, I went back for more a few times?
