If Bil Nye had been around when I was in school, I might have taken physics
(gotta love the eybrow waggles and hand gestures - Morrissey would be proud)

how about most awesome quote of the day ever!

Stephanie said...

i'm stealing it and putting it on my blog
OK?
thanks!

Barbara Bruederlin said...

That is a great quote, isn't it, Stephanie? Feel free to use it whenever and wherever you like.
I mught not want it on a t-shirt I was wearing, but whatever.

Barbara said...

That is Bill Nye the science guy??

Barbara Bruederlin said...

While Bill Nye is not actually in the video, Barbara W, it is from his show. They always had the most inventive videos, combining science with reworked pop songs. Brilliant!

Maureen said...

Great vid - and some of the other stuff on the site is very amusing, haha.

Yeah, I was kinda grooving to that one thinking "there's something wrong here..."

I like Bill Nye, he used to be on a late night local comedy show called "Almost Live." He fancied blowing shit up with an educational twist... god he makes me hot.

Stephanie said...

holy crap that video is awesome

i took physics because i was dumb, then 4 years later my physics teacher told my brother that i would have killed for the grade that he got

nice eh?

You can see some pretty amazing things on Utube, Maureen. Almost makes me wish I had a video camera and an utter lack of common sense. Well, okay, maybe I do have the latter.

Jeff, wouldn't it be cool if Morrissey did his version with a crash helmet and a flaming wall?

Blowing shit up with an educational twist makes you hot, Michelle. Okay, now I see where you are coming from. We'll have to see if we can arrange to set a fire in the school science class when you come visit.

No Stephanie, I DIDN'T take physics because I was dumb; you took it because you were misled. Stupid teacher anyway.

michelle said...

I like bunsen burners.

I do I do I do.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

And those powders that flame up in different colours, Michelle? Those are great too. Can you still buy chemistry sets?

Tydes Perdition said...

Mish, you should look into getting some different types of wire to throw into your next campfire. Some metals can create different colors when they oxidize in fire (maybe what Barbara's talking about) and generally look pretty cool.

I'm a big firebug from way back. If I wasn't so respectable, I'd be a pyromaniac.

Jeff, I'm getting the impression that the best place to partake of a weenie roast this summer will be either your place or Michelle's. Pyros always host the best ones.
