    Yep. There was no plan for sundials before Nye. It was his spark of brilliance.
    It just reenforced the point that putting a sundial on the thing wasn't some great feat of science or engineering. Especially seeing how the stick he used for the sun dial was already there.

    I don't know how anyone could like that godless freak Bill Nye. He tells kids about evolution. Seriously, no ones ever proven that, get off it.

    One thing I take away from this thread is my god our educational TV is freaking horrible now compared to what it use to be.
    Are people just that dumb now?
    Lets take a look at Mr. Wizards World. As already stated Mr. Wizard himself is not much of a showman. Yet he managed to be ranked #3 show in 1983 on Nickelodeon. In fact most of his shows seemed to do well. Then you have Bill Nye got 19 emmy awards and is still a household name. Even Beakman's World managed to be shown in 90 countries.
    Yet now we get freaking Ancient Aliens on History channel, Honey Boo Boo on TLC, and American Choppers on Discovery.
    WTF

    I actually enjoyed about 20 minutes of ancient aliens. Which is more than I can say for any of the others.
