I know that he’s a semi-regular among Lindy Hoppers in southern California. My old dance partner became kind of friendly with him.

I think this guy cast a spell and reclaimed his rightful throne.

He did another more adult show (not in that way) and is seen time to time at conferences.

Bill Nye was the coolest guy ever! I watched his show all the time when it used to be on. It would be awesome to
meet him and see if he’s as cool as he seems.

Defiantly one of my favorite people growing up.

He’s still one of my heroes. Such an incredible man. I miss his old kids show. My parents would not only let me watch it, but they’d tape it for me!

i liked his theme song.

Someone should start a musical duo called “Nye and Wizzard.” The lyrics can be all sciency.

I used to watch bill nye in school. For some reason everyone hated it and would complain when the teacher would put it on, but i was always eagerly awaiting the next time. I used to also get up 2 hours early on school days to watch bill nye and then go back to sleep until i had to actually get up.

Hi is working a lot on raising awareness about global warming. He wants to be known as “Bill Nye the Climate Guy.” You can listen to an interview that he did about that on Sierra Club Radio in June on their website here

He’s busy dropping science like Galileo dropped oranges.

delirium's avatar

Wow, that’s awesome. I should really know that as i’m a part of the sierra club…. heh.

Last I heard he was being chased out of Texas for saying the moon reflects the sun.

“WE BELIEVE IN GOD” One angry woman shouted at him during a speech.
I’ll look for the link later

found it

Psh, but really. What does Bill Nye know? Next he’s going to tell us the Earth is older than 6000 years old just because it can be proven.

The whole Texas incident shouldn’t be used as a standard for all Texans. I am a Texan and I have loved Bill Nye since I was a wee lad. I watched his show, dare I say it, religiously. the last I heard about him agrees with an above post about the moon. It should also be noted that William has a degree in mechanical engineering which he obtained from Cornell University.

He’s also been in several episodes of Numb3rs – he plays one of the geeky professors at Cal Sci. It’s a great role for him – it’s like a mini-episode of Bill Nye the Science Guy, right in the middle of the Numb3rs episode!

simone54's avatar

Yo everyone! There is TON on Bill Nye stuff on YouTube. They even have the music videos.

Jreemy's avatar

Bill Nye is supposed to be starting up a new show, the name of which eludes me at the time. I saw a commercial for it earlier in the week.

El_Cadejo's avatar

The show is called Stuff Happens and its on Planet Green a discovery channel on Tuesday nights at 9

eambos's avatar

I hope I have that channel. Bill Nye was the best!

El_Cadejo's avatar

@Eambos if you have digital cable you should have it.

eambos's avatar

That’s good. I just need to find the channel #!
