Some people think he has a degree in physics, but he really has a fun-kill degree from Killjoke university
@Strider1321, with a minor in incessant douchery
@Suicide Squad Sucks, Is he really that much of an unpleasant fellow?
@TheKen42, Neil is an awesome person. People just don't like their illusions of reality broken. #SafeSpace
@GrimMrGosh, no Neil dumbass Tyson is a dumbass and it'd be great he faded back into the fun sucking void which he came from.
@TheKen42, it's not so much the passing of knowledge, as it is the condescending tone apparent in his tweets. He has that smug "I'm smarter than you!" kind of vibe.
@GrimMrGosh, he thinks bats are blind and is constantly trying to sound smart. I love the guy, but he's a douche
But the next line is "and if you ever saw it, you would even say it glows" which by the laws of thermodynamics anything that glows with energy also emits light as well as heat. So by default even though it is shiny and absorbs light when it glows it emits light leading to my conclusion that rudolph's nose is a solar powered beacon able to light a foggy nights sleigh ride.
@dont hate masturbate, the song doesn't say that it does glow, just that one would perceive it as glowing.
Actually such a douche though...
My Christmas lights are shiny... they emit light.
Whether this is “scientifically accurate” or not does not matter. The average person does not alway use “shine” that way. You would tell someone to shine your flashlight in a certain place, it does not mean the light is reflecting light instead of emitting it.
shiney as in, it shines.
This man is like the physical manifestation of stolen valor except he’s stealing it from people with aspergers
Shut up black science man
Maybe Neil, Rudolph can turn his nose off and on, and when it’s off, it’s shiny, and when it’s on, get this, it glows. Didn’t think of that now did you. Maybe you should think before you open your stupid physics mouth Mr. Science man McGee
I mean this is 6 years old
