Bill Nye Booted Off DWTS As Science Lets Him — And The World — Down

Filed under: TV NewsSad SadDancing With The StarsDance

We are SO disappointed in science right now!!

Billy Nye was one of our favorite contestants this season on Dancing With The Stars, and it was mostly because we absolutely love who he is outside of the show — it's just a shame that for some reason they kept thinking it was necessary to push the science thing for his dance routines!

He should've been breaking OUT of that shell, but because he didn't, we're sad to say that's the first way science let him down.

The second way was when Bill injured his knee: he just wasn't as mobile as he should have been, and they tried their best to hide it with his robot dance (above). It's a huge bummer, and we expected more from science after the injury — what, no healing contraption? No bionic suit??

COME ON, SCIENCE! Bill has done so much for you throughout these years! You owed him!!

Oh well. Now he can get back to inventing a new species or figuring out how to terraform Mars or whatever he actually does!

The perfect gift for the young Directioner tween in your life??

Uh, maybe not.

Although this One Direction teddy bear from the Build-a-Bear Workshop may be super cute and look kid-friendly, it actually dances around to one of their biggest hits, Live While We're Young, which just so happens to be about a one-night stand!

Ha!

In case you're not 1D's biggest fan, here are just some of the lyrics of LWWY:

Texan's J.J. Watt Helps Cancer Patient Get An NFL Surprise!!

Filed under: InspirationHealthFootballCancerCute Kidz

One of the best parts of being a football star probably has nothing to do with actually playing the sport — it's probably inspiring fans, especially youngsters who want to grow up to be like you!

That's definitely the deal with Texans star J.J. Watt, who surprised one of his fans after he learned the young cancer patient had named the robot he uses for school after him!

Such a heartwarming story! You gotta watch it for yourself (above)!

The surprise is SO adorable!

Mom Fully Controls Robot Arm With Her Mind

Filed under: InspirationHealthScience!

Before the robot apocalypse, we all assumed if we had strong enough minds, the machines wouldn't be able to take over.

We were wrong.

LOLz! JK!

This is a FAB story about a quadriplegic mom that is able to control her robotic arm just through her thoughts. It's absolutely heartwarming and ridiculously rad. Science it basically the coolest thing ever, and we have mad respect for it.

Ha!

Check out the video for the mind-blowing rundown (above)!

Usain Bolt: Not Faster Than The Cheetah Robot!

Filed under: Tech TalkScience!Scary!

Oh man!

Imagine having one of THESE things chasing you down!

It's much more palatable to imagine Usain Bolt chasing you down — plus you'd have a .5 mph better chance of getting away!

This thing is insane — and an absolutely huge can of nightmare fuel!

Watch (above) at your own risk!!

LOLz!
