  1. Neil DeGrasse Tyson is a science hero of mine. Whenever he is interviewed, he has an infectious way of speaking that gets you excited about whatever he's talking about, and instantly grabs your attention. Watching him on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart is absolutely hilarious and enlightening.

  2. Cigarettes and beer too! I have a colleague who is a marathon runner and who drinks beer instead of water. Amazing.

  3. Ha, the guy in the photo looks badass, sadly, he probably never finished the race... But ain't that the whole point of smoking, killing yourself while looking cool?
