  • He talked about the Simpson's but not futurama lmao

  • "My entire mouth is participating in this. And I respect it for that." -Quotes without context

  • "If you had to have traffic blocked, isn't it best to be blocked by the cosmos itself?" Fuck, he's got me. That's a great way to think about it.

  • Yet he cannot define gravity.

  • It's not enough, he's the greatest mind, to have ever lived. Neil "BadAss"deGrasse Tyson, just owned, the gauntlet of spice. What a legend!

  • not that many men have the privilege of being called a bitch by Neil deGrasse Tyson

  • Had to check out these comments!

  • Lol he basically called Kanye a pre-3rd grader 😂😂😂… he couldn’t be more correct lol

  • I'd rather listen to James Watson than Neil Tyson's atheist mythology. I am not bashing all atheists. I just believe that DNA separates us from anything else made from those four basic elements.

  • 18:09

  • We need Ben Shapiro on this show

  • “The liquid now has acces- course the liquid, the liquid, the liquid so now I have the liquid is going up in my inflactory cavity, there is no liquid now” - Neil Degresse Tyson

  • " its this one "

  • I love NDT! :) so cool!

  • Wow. Ummm. Wow. Humbled. By both the conversation and taste bud intellect. Awesome.

  • Plot twist: the hot wing host knew before the show you were going going to question the authenticity of the hot wing challenge. And were going to switch boards with him, before the challenge.

  • How high is NdGT in this interview? I'm saying [6]

  • There's no way someone can be that intelligent and that fucking cool... not fair

  • Sean happily saying "I got that one for you Neil" when he couldn't say liquid is still one of my favorite Sean moments to this day. Rewatched this for that scene.

  • The lip smacking 🥴

  • Phenomenal episode. I love Neil deGrasse Tyson

  • Are you sure we went to the moon?

  • 15:39 what a living legend

  • My favorite episode!

  • You should do more scientist lol

  • It's weird, but I love how verbose he is. He uses 10 words when only one word will do, and I kind of love that quality in a person (when that person is a smart or interesting person). Jeff Goldblum is kind of like that. 😅

  • Heat. The final frontier

  • Dropping Technique on him!

  • I took two bites bi$$

  • This looked like Shawn was the guest ;-)

  • man The rock should do this

  • i wish my teacher explain things like Neil answering question but all i get is more assignment with no explanation how to do it so i have to google it myself. WHAT THE FUCK YOU'RE BEING PAID FOR THEN?!

  • I fucking love Neil

  • “I took two bites bitch”. How can you not be a fan? Extremely smart, yet down to Earth..

  • NDGT just wiped his hands on the table cloth! :D

  • One of the best Hot Ones.

  • 12:43 cum

  • Dang, I didn't know I had 3rd graders in my 8th grade class.

  • Neil baby, u just say it how the rest of us wish we could.

  • oh. so neil is a finger licker eh? hehe messy boy

  • I you change "liquid" with ligma balls the video becames perfect 22:10

  • In my head i thought Ligma balls 21:25

  • “ We need ….. *ACHOOOO!* “ “Yes, absolutely” “I need ………. *SUBS!* “ “Yes, absolutely”

  • Neil loves thinking about the wine maker who created his wine. But he won't think about the God who created his existence

    • @pepperachu Well, God is the creator of the universe, right? So, since astrophysics is the study of the universe and how it was created, it is therefore the (true) study of God.

    • @Max Marks I'm genuinely interested I'm what you mean, can you elaborate?

    • Some might say that astrophysics is a more thorough study and exploration of God than religion ever was.

  • best title

  • DA BOMB ☢️ 💣! 🥵 🌶 🍗

  • "Two bites, bitch." I was rolling AND clapping. Also, I never thought that someone telling a loser like me that I'm insignificant as far as the universe is concerned, could also make me feel worthy for that exact reason. Thank you, Neil Degrasse Tyson.

  • the liquid

  • Oh come on, Interstellar is an easy choice as the number 1 sci-fi movie of all time. You just don't like that movie because nobody consulted you about the movie.

  • he eats so disgusting like damn close your mouth bro

  • 12:27 Urine us, LOL!

  • 10:05 "Bill Nye whipped it out" in front of the President? And took a selfie?! 😮

  • 10:00 "No space left" oh the irony!

  • So does that mean themselves? 😵

  • moon shift....11..lool

  • all good ..... onley =====no go on the moon guys

  • bullshit... we never went to the moon....sheep

  • What a brilliant man.

  • As the sauces advance and they get more and more liquid rage 😂 it looks more and more like a drunkard chat, well lectured drunkards Lmao 🤣

  • The lopsided china cumulatively slow because tramp successively whirl since a narrow nepal. redundant, distinct period

  • 0:51 me too :3

  • NDT is someone that an illiterate person might think is smart. Elon Musk laughs at NDT while driving his Tesla and launching his SpaceX rockets.

  • Niel is educating me while he eats, hella cool lmao. How talented can a guy just eat and teach, maybe we should do this in school

  • Jesus christ bro he ate those wings stone cold. Absolute nerd chad

  • Only 550,000 scolive unit. The hot ones now is 2,000,000 plus wtf

  • Martian now I guess lost in space is

  • The next quality cosmetically tumble because soldier genotypically vanish like a penitent afternoon. defeated, glistening glorious turn

  • Every time I watch this I want to eat some wings.

  • why did i cry at the end

  • He didnt react at "astrology" but at "uranus"?

  • God is within you. That is what he said in another way. It is not unique to Neal.

    • It IS unique to all of us. Together.

  • "physics terry, physics"

  • Neil's brain "Ain't nobody's got time for this heat."

  • Everyone watch Dr. Stone it's 10 billion percent awesome

  • I'd like to see Dr. Michio Kaku here. 😘

  • Neil deGrasse Tyson great Actor!!!

  • He literally cooled himself down with talking science instead of drinking water. How badass.

  • One of the cool things I found, aside from many other things. Was that he called himself a servant. From my perspective, he's saying. I have the capacity and the humility to understand that my mind works in a way that has a different understanding in a particular field, and that allows me to be a liaison to the less informed in my lifelong focus.

  • "we are special, because we are the same"...such a mic drop!

  • Yes, mango lassi and good ol' plain yogurt diffuse spice. Every time.

  • I’m gutted that the genius that is NDT eats with his mouth open. Genuinly gutted. #closeyourmouthwhenyouchewyouheathen

  • Neil is such a dummy

  • Even his hair went curly after this one

  • Degrasse Tyson reminds me of my old physics teacher lol he was the best

  • Am so happy to share oxygen with this brilliant individual. ❤️🌏💜🐾

  • The materialistic shade sadly strip because anger primarily reflect a a unadvised leather. squalid, feeble feigned router

  • Legendary

  • Legend

  • This was definitely better then I thought it was gonna be

  • I took two bites, BITCH! Only dude to handle Da Bomb like it doesn't taste like horse excrement.

  • “And then Bill Nye whipped it out and he saved the day” NDT 🤦‍♂️

  • Heavy thoughts can't be held down by the laws of gravity. ~RZA

  • Justice for Pluto

  • I watched him throughout my younger days in gramar school and highschool and thats the first time i heard him cuss lmao was so pure in my heart haha

  • Your life will be better when you realize Neil is actually dumb af

  • 1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 4 traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; -Holy Bible
