    Donald Jeffry Herbert
    July 10, 1917 – June 12, 2007

    Though I guess he could win if Nye contracted some sort of horrible infection while molesting Mr. Wizards corpse...

    Science FTW!

    Oh I thought we where going for one of those who would win Bruce Lee or Anderson Silva sorts of things with that.

    You are correct in his current condition he wouldn't put up much of a fight.

    Oh yeah, in their prime that would be one hell of a match up.

    I'm with you though on giving that one to Wizzard for a couple of reasons;

    One: Wizzard wears a windsor tie. Like a man. Nye wears a bow tie. Like a clown. What's up with that?

    Two: Mr. Wizard is one fo those "greatest generation" crusty old bastards. A couple blows to the head and he'd be back on Iwo Jima clearing machine gun nests with nothing but his bare teeth and a kill boner. Nye wouldn't stand a chance.

    Three: Old school resistance to poisons. Wizard wasn't afraid of asbestos fireproofing, carcinogenic house cleaners, toxic pesticides or lead based baby formula. Nye would probably go into toxic shock just from exposure the the poisonous heavy metal content of Mr. Wizard's breath.

    Don was actually a B-24 pilot, which is cool but not as cool as putting a sun dial on Mars like Nye did.

    Don Herbert died of rare blood cancer, too.

    No doubt the Nye is the better engineer. Mr Wizards experiments still way better.

    Sadly all of Mr. Wizard's experiments were terrestrial. Nye's ongoing experiments are extra-terrestrial. That makes him extra better than Mr. Wizard.

    As opposed to the 99% of 89+ year olds who don't die of rare blood disorders each year?

    Don Herbert likely suffered horribly at the end.

    My 7 year old can't replicate Nye's extra-terrestrial experiments.

    As opposed to all the people who don't even make it to 89.

    Winston had to wear that bow tie to counter balance his natural badassitude. Without it, every female mammal within two miles would become spontaneously pregnant with triplets.
