Anyway, they started talking about the nuclear issue at that power plant, and teased that they'd be talking to a special, because, as the confused-looking anchor suggested, "WHAT DOES THIS ALL MEAN?"
Enter Bill. Nye. Yes, Bill Nye. THE SCIENCE GUY:
I was stunned. I mean, this issue in Japan: serious, right? Does the guy above make you think of, well, ANYTHING other than goofiness? So, I threw up a casual tweet to share my disdain for CNN. Because, really, was Sid the Science Kid unavailable?!

Guys, my silly little tweet was RETWEETED over a hundred times within like 15 or 20 minutes, and hours later that number was nearly 600. My phone was blowing up with constant updates. And suddenly, Bill Nye was trending. (Not from ME alone, of course, but I would like to point out that, later on, KEITH OLBERMANN joined the discussion, but could not surpass my Top Tweet status. ERGO, I'm WAY COOLER THAN KEITH OLBERMANN.):
So it was fun and it was good. But THEN, people started getting mad at me for hating on Bill Nye. Someone even went put in the effort to click through my Twitter profile, find my blog, and go to my Facebook page to send me a message:
For an average American -stupid and ignorant- like you, Bill Nye is just OK...
Aww, Andres. That must have taken a lot of courage to confront me like that. So, I'll put up your picture so everyone can love you right back, dollface!
|Isn't he lovely?|
Anyway, it was fun to take over Twitter for a while. I mean, it was no WILLIAM SHATNER, but I do what I can. (Imagine what kind of hate mail SHE got!)
Anyway, the purpose of me telling you all this is to state, for the record, that I'm sure BILL NYE IS A SWELL GUY. (Oh, and to point out that THIS is why I never watch CNN.)
