Guess this means the big time for the quirky science enthusiast
By Gary S. Vasilash
Bill Nye is not a real doctor, nor does he have a master’s degree—in science. (A BS in mechanical engineering from Cornell.)
But he has made science interesting to the young and old alike.
There he is, always wearing a bowtie (and a suit or lab coat) rolling out in an understandable manner the science behind everyday life.
And he does so in a way that he seems to be the lovable everyman teacher from one’s middle school.
One of the things that a lovable everyman teacher from one’s middle school probably could only dream of is a Porsche Taycan.
But Nye has been hired by Porsche to create a YouTube channel for a series of shows that explain what makes the $79,900 electric Porsche special.
For some people what makes it special are:
- It is a Porsche
- It has a starting price of $79,900 and goes to $185,000.
It is worth noting that Porsche had also hired Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter to star in a video, “Going the Distance,” during which they take a road trip in SoCal in Taycans.
While that is somewhat understandable (e.g., getting on the accelerator really does earn a “Whoa!”), it is somewhat sad that Bill Nye has gone Hollywood.
Of course, were he Bill Nye Math Guy he would be able to explain the likely sudden increase in his bank balance.
“… is somewhat sad that Bill Nye has gone Hollywood.”
…Agreed. But I guess one has to eat.
