Shortly before 1am last night, the Chicago Cubs clinched their first World Series title in 108 years. Chicago went crazy, Bill Murray and Theo Epstein got sloshed on camera, and J.R. Smith probably got kind of cold.

While the game was still in progress, however, noted bloviator Neil deGrasse Tyson decided to weigh in on the Cubs’ chances, turning himself into the human equivalent of a wet blanket in the process.


(I’m not going to put every one of his 11 tweets in here, because we all deserve better than that, but the rest of them are easily found on his timeline, which is a delightful hate-read in and of itself.)

You might be wondering at this point how Neil knows so much about the year 1908. The answer, as any high school student will tell you: Wikipedia, baby.


In fairness, not every one of his tweets was sourced from Wikipedia.


Better stick to tweeting about sex, Neil. Just kidding.
