He’s an entertainer. I used to cringe at his “Bill Nye the Science Guy” shows on PBS when I’d watch them with my nieces. I remember thinking, “omg he’s got that SO FREAKING WRONG” more times than I wanted to talk about, especially his simplifications about light and sound…. they were cringe worthy.
Then again, I was lucky. I grew up with Mr. Wizard. He was freakin’ amazing. He stuck forks in an electric socket to cook a hotdog. I remember grabbing my crotch as a kid watching that hotdog get cooked and gained a HUGE respect for electricity at that moment.
