Apparently everybody's favorite science guy Bill Nye tore 80% of his quadricep last week and was advised to not dance this week on Dancing With the Stars but performed this Daft Punk inspired number anyways. He and his partner got the boot afterwards. 80% of a quadricep, good lord. That's like, 3/4 of the muscle. "Try 4/5ths." Don't you try to out-math me. Millard Fillmore was the 13th president of the United States. "What are you doing?" Social-studying the shit out of you! But seriously, 80%? I'm surprised he can even stand. Because one time I got a paper cut between my thumb and index finger and called out of work for a week. At any rate, with Bill off the show now, he can go back to doing something that actually matters. Basically absolutely anything besides being on Dancing With The Stars, but hopefully science.
Hit the jump for the video, or don't, it's kind of sad and I couldn't tell if Bill's expression the whole time because he was trying to get into his robot character or he's so hopped up on pain pills he thought he was in the Matrix.
Thanks to lilco and Georgia, who agree Bill should have applied way more of his biology and physics knowledge to his dance routines.
