Neil deGrasse Tyson falls over when he takes his pants off, just like the rest of us

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.

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.

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.

And for some reason he had 15 tweets suggesting names for Beyonce’s twins.

Bottomline, scientist are human just like the rest of us… if the rest of us were sexy super geniuses.
