Tweets From Neil deGrasse Tyson's Freshman Dorm Room

Illustration for article titled Tweets From Neil deGrasse Tysons Freshman Dorm Room

Neil deGrasse Tyson is a brilliant, modern-day Carl Sagan. He is also, if we are to judge solely by his Twitter account, a freshman philosophy major, tweeting from his dorm room and rolling blunts on top of his used copy of Plato's Republic.


Imagine, if you will, Neil deGrasse Tyson—celestial tie and all—sprawled across empty pizza boxes atop a twin bed, eyes glazed over as visions of Plato's cave and words like "dialectical" dance in his head. Suddenly, he realizes—he's done it. He's figured it out. Neil pulls out his phone, and starts to tweet.


Just wait until his Intro class hears about this.

If we had 12 fingers, I wonder whether the Bill of Rights to the American Consitiution would have been 12 amendments long.

Madison proposed 39 amendments, which got boiled down to 12. 10 became the bill of rights, 1 was never passed (and is irrelevant at this point), and 1 was passed 202 years later in 1992.
