Neil deGrasse Tyson may have gone to Harvard, and sure he has a Ph.D. in astrophysics, but he still puts his pants on one leg at a time like the rest of us, and sometimes, if he takes those pants off too quickly, he falls down. And sometimes he accidentally tweets that information out to his 7 million followers.
No. I have pretty good balance for my body size. But I have fallen over while attempting to quickly take off my pants.— Neil deGrasse Tyson (@neiltyson) May 10, 2017
Didn’t intend to send that last tweet to all. Was responding to someone asking if I’d ever fallen trying to remove my T-shirt— Neil deGrasse Tyson (@neiltyson) May 10, 2017
As far as embarrassing tweets go it’s not like sending out a dick pic while you’re a member of congress, and in fact most people found it endearing, or even kinda hot.
You are so humble and delightful. #darling 🤗— CASARobin 🌷 J.D., E.D. (@15JudicialCASA) May 10, 2017
We’ve all been there, Neil.— David Fucillo (@davidfucillo) May 10, 2017
That is sexy… pic.twitter.com/xPQ3pU6ptr— Biden is a Segregationist (@whattheplucked) May 10, 2017
After all, there’s really only two reasons to be taking off your pants quickly. One of them is sexy, the other, well… isn’t.
Tyson often uses Twitter to educate the public with scientific facts, but he also isn’t afraid to get political when he’s in the mood.
Show me a Nation with a science-hostile government, and I'll show you a society with failing health, wealth, & security.— Neil deGrasse Tyson (@neiltyson) April 22, 2017
Cutting the NEA & NEH to save money on a $3-trillion budget is like thinking 1/3-inch is long relative to a football field.— Neil deGrasse Tyson (@neiltyson) March 22, 2017
And for some reason he had 15 tweets suggesting names for Beyonce’s twins.
“Perigee” & “Apogee” – The nearest and farthest points from Earth in the Moon’s oval orbit. #NamesForBeyonceTwins— Neil deGrasse Tyson (@neiltyson) April 12, 2017
“Aster” & “Roid” — Losing ideas fast, so will stop here. Cosmic #NamesForBeyonceTwins— Neil deGrasse Tyson (@neiltyson) April 12, 2017
Bottomline, scientist are human just like the rest of us… if the rest of us were sexy super geniuses.
