Bill Nye may still be The Science Guy, but he' s no
longer Mr. Nice Guy.
During a live interview this morning with the
Smithsonian Channel, the mild mannered science
educator unloaded on US. Congressman Todd Akin,
calling him "a fucking idiot" for accusing Nye of
personally provoking Hurricane Issac.
Last week Nye uploaded a video to ‘i' outube urging parents not to teach their children
creationism. At a town hall campaign event yesterday, Akin used the video as an
example of immoral behavior driving god to punish America through extreme weather.
Although reporters reached out to Nye for a statement yesterday, his first discussion of
the matter came this morning at Smithsonian' s Washington EEC. headquarters.
Nye Got a Feeling...
The 56 year old star of the "Bill Nye The Science Guy" was in the studio to
promote his new documentary series focusing on the neuroscience of childhood
After briefly discussing his show, the Smithsonian anchors asked
Nye about Akin' s recent accusation. The normally genial Nye
wasted no time venting his rage about the comments:
White Space "Look, these people they' re fucking retarded. Rape can' t cause
pregnancy? Breastmilk cures homosexuality? I caused a hurricane
by challenging creationism? Who can possibly take these people
The slightly uncomfortable anchors then tried to change the
subject, but Nye persisted:
It used to be these Republicans didn' t believe in global warming or evolution. That was
bad enough. Now they don' t even believe in egg + sperm = baby. Where does Todd Akin
think babies come from? Does he think there are separate storks for people who were
raped and people who weren' t? "
Hey look over there! It' s the rape stork. It drops its babies directly at the orphanage."
He' s a fucking idiot. Just a plain fucking idiot. I' m sorry- I don' t say that word very often -
but it happens to fit in this case. He' sjust a fucking idiot."

As the stunned anchors hurriedly tried to wind the conversation down and cut to
commercial, Nye stared directly into the camera and issued a challenge to his newshound
So Todd I got an offer for you. You and me. Anytime. Any place. Debating science
mans amend. I' ll bring the facts, and you bring the Vaseline. Because your ass is gonna
fucking need it when I' m done whipping."
Nye apologized once more for his language before ripping off his microphone and
walking off the set.
Representatives of the Smithsonian Channel say they have no comment on the incident.
Bill Nye could not be reached, but a tweet on his Twiiter account posted
shortly after the incident read:
Never enter the eye of Hurricane NYEA"
