Dojo of Fame – Bill Nye the Science Guy

Science Rules!  Most people only know Bill Nye as the goofy host of that educational television show for kids….but most Bill Nye is acually just as much of a scientist as a entertainer.  Not only that…but we share a birthday!  So…yeah..

For example he “developed a hydraulic pressure resonance suppressor still used in the Boeing 747.”   He holds several patents.

He acually got his nickname “the science guy” when he was an actor on a sketch comedy series known as Seattle, Almost Live! after correcting the way the host pronounced Gigawatt.  The host responded by saying “who do you think you are?  Bill Nye, the Science Guy?”

He has made a lot of public appearences on television since the Science Guy show.  He has been on everything from the weather channel, to Who wants to be a Millionaire (as a lifeline) to an Episode of Stargate: Atlantis.  He was even in a ride at Disneyworld!

Bottom line:  Bill Nye rocks and Science Rules!  So welcome to the Dojo of Fame, Bill!

(for more Nye info check out his Wikipedia page, my source for all this info or his personal Website)
