    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Mr Wizard > Bill Nye

    So in an effort to expand on my nearly 7 year olds science education I got my hands on all the Mr. Wizard and Bill Nye episodes.
    Mr. Wizard wins hands down by his first episode first experiment
    Volcano made out of Asbestos-Paper filled with ammonium dichromate.

    Get the **** out. At least Bill Nye didn't give kids cancer with asbestos paper. I almost fell asleep before he got around to setting it off. If you ever try to say this crotchety old fart even compares to the One True Science Guy, I will personally hunt you down and drown you with my tears after you break my arm.

    YES I'M MAD.

    I counter with Bill Nye's own words
    "Herbert's techniques and performances helped create the United States' first generation of homegrown rocket scientists just in time to respond to Sputnik. He sent us to the moon. He changed the world."
    articles.latimes.com/2007/jun/15/entertainment/et-wizard15

    Obvious both men great, and I will even admit that Billy Nye's program is a bit better for a child as he does a great job of talking about one subject for 22 mins but reducing it down in a manner that appeals to someone with a short attention span by constantly jumping around.

    However Mr. Wizard gets more to the heart of science the experiment. Each episode was one experiment with a very short explanation to the science behind it after another. The best part was they where always stuff you can do at home on the cheap. Easy to repeat and easy to understand.

    Mr. Wizard would've fit in just fine on Bullshido.

    Nye did the same stuff. And his instruments are also now taking Martian measurements.

    Carl Sagan personally taught Bill Nye about science. Can you imagine that experience?

    Nye > Wizard.
