Mr. Wizard 

 Sad news today, folks. Mr. Wizard (whose real name was Don Herbert), the beloved man of science on Nickelodeon in the ’80’s passed away yesterday from a battle with bone cancer. I don’t know why but I always get sad when celebrities of yester-year die.

At any rate, I was a huge fan of Mr Wizard and am pretty sure that watching his show was really the only time I ever enjoyed science.

R.I.P. Don.

(since I don’t know how to put a video up yet, go here for the Mr. Wizard show intro and here for a Mr. Wizard PSA about water heaters.)
