    I don't know if we found life from outside our solar system but we sure have found their spaceships

        Finding of life on Mars will not change a thing. People are too stupid (especially Americans) to understand the findings. People get more excited from things like finding the face of Jesus on a Lay's potato chip.

                              We did that shit in 99. I was a senior and high school and they put that shit through the loudspeaker as it was happening. Clinton's speech that day, was featured in the movie "Contact". Went away real quick. Just like North Korea tensions after all those sudden earthquakes and hurricanes. This is not new news. 20/20 episode from late 80's, featured the large antennae array that could "change the weather". Their words. Not mine. I dont give a FK, about conspiracy. Conspiracy theorists can go fk their mothers. All you need is memory of news stories since 1980s.

                                        Neil said that mass shootings don't matter much because "people all over the world die every day." I wish his sexual assaults wouldn't overshadow the fact he's a straight up asshole.

                                                Neil Tyson is just an actor folks. Everybody in the mainstream media apparatus is just playing a part.

                                                        Colbert was prompting him to say he was humbled , more conscious of effect of his actions... didn’t happen !

I almost believe that Dr Tyson did not expect the question either, you can clearly see the drop in his mood/outer image. But I'm glad he's willing to address it as he had done via Twitter.

Also Neil needs to learn some social skills himself I doubt he realized how his actions might be perceived like his inappropriate tweet after a mass shooting he wasn't wrong but, bruh.
