Neil deGrasse Tyson: "Oh shit, that's good. Write that down!"

[-] [email protected] 68 points 1 month ago

in a mirror, you can kiss yourself, but only on the lips

Something tells me Neil may have actually performed that experiment himself. For science.

"Docking sequence initiated"

Oh, suddenly self love is a problem?!?

[-] meco03211 12 points 1 month ago

Sir, this is a Wendy's.

It's actually even more unlikely that they would be able to learn how to talk. This guy's clearly not a very good scientist if he missed that.

[-] NegativeInf 52 points 1 month ago

I'd be questioning the unique selective pressures that caused the hundred acre wood to produce sentient stuffing filled animals.

[-] [email protected] 9 points 1 month ago

I mean, if it's the Red Forest, anything is possible

[-] [email protected] 6 points 1 month ago

Darwin's got his finches, Dawkins has his teddy, each instrumental to the modern understanding of natural selection.

[-] Opisek 3 points 1 month ago

Or he knows something we don't...

[-] waigl 58 points 1 month ago

Unlike with Neil DeGrasse Tyson, with Dawkins, I would be quite surprised if he brought that up without being quite specifically asked about it…

[-] SonnyVabitch 22 points 1 month ago

It's probably from an hour long portrait interview, in which they cover a lot of ground including favourite English literary pieces, and the interviewer tries to tie it to the guest. They would probably ask David Beckham which Harry Potter character he'd have on his football team.

Dawkins would have shitposted on Twitter with the best of them if he'd been born later

But, now hear me out, what if there was also a rabbit?

[-] [email protected] 22 points 1 month ago

Why stop there? Owl! Tiger! Kangaroo!

[-] [email protected] 3 points 1 month ago

Tigger. There's a double-guh.

[-] WhiskyTangoFoxtrot 2 points 1 month ago* (last edited 1 month ago)

It's morphin' time!

[-] spirinolas 30 points 1 month ago

Yeah, not with that attitude, Richard.

[-] [email protected] 21 points 1 month ago

This looks like something from Viz magazine. They'll regularly have big one page jokes about something and then have these little made up side bits in.

Whole thing was probably about illegal immigrants taking small boats to the hundred acre wood and then there's this little bit in the bottom.

[-] [email protected] 13 points 1 month ago

Here's an example. The thoughts of the 1966 world cup winning squad on the disappearance of Lord Lucan

I mean, he's a Tigger, not a Tiger, so that's off.

Bruh you can't just drop the t-word like that

I don’t think those animals would be stitched together with cloth and stuffed with cotton, either.

[-] NABDad 8 points 1 month ago

I came here looking to see if anyone would point out that they are toy animals, not real ones.

Someone take Dawkins to a zoo.

[-] Entropywins 9 points 1 month ago

I mean, the dude studied zoology at Balliol College, Oxford, so he is an expert on the matter...

[-] [email protected] 3 points 1 month ago

And yet his statement is missing the oxford comma

"Richard Dawkins confirms intelligent design mostly likely explanation"

[-] homesweethomeMrL 7 points 1 month ago
[-] Semi_Hemi_Demigod 5 points 1 month ago

I'm sure there's regions where people have pigs and donkeys and there are bears and tigers in the woods.

However, it would not end up well for the pig or the donkey if they hung out

[-] [email protected] 5 points 1 month ago

If someone released a donkey in East India this would be very plausible. Kangaroos on the other hand…

[-] [email protected] 3 points 1 month ago

Yeah there's no way that Kanga hasn't beaten the shit out of them all already for getting too close to Roo, especially Tigger and Pooh.
