You know how the moon doesn't actually emit its own light but instead reflects the light of the sun? Just say you know that, even if you don't, and from now on pretend you've known that since like 5th grade science class when the rest of us learned it but you were too busy trying to figure out in your head what tongue kissing might feel like. Well, anyway, Bill Nye was explaining this concept to some folks in Waco, TX where he was speaking as part of a lecture series. Nye pointed out that contrary to Genesis 1:16, which reads: "God made two great lights -- the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night," the "lesser light" isn't actually a light but a reflection of the "greater light". Well, that audience NEVER! Several of them walked the fuck out on his ass and one mother of three (with kids in tow) screamed out, "We believe in God!" Ummmm. What the fuck, Waco?
Waco has never really been exactly known for the awesome thinking skills of its citizens. So, I suppose this is sort of like a normal day at school for them. But still, what the fuck, Waco. Bill Nye, while I'll admit he's heavy handed on the puns, only brings the facts to the party, y'all!
Do y'all have any "Old News" items to share? Tell me!
