Having more than 2 million followers on Twitter -- as Bill Nye does -- means that "mean tweets" are an inevitability. Also: You are required by law to make a viral video of yourself reading them. Taking a page out of Jimmy Kimmel's book, Nye released a video of his own over the weekend and solidified the fact that he's the most Internet savvy scientist in town. The Twitter read-aloud comes on the heels of Nye's Kickstarter campaign for a feature-length film and includes a few unforgettable gems such as "Bill Nye sucks butthole." Way to keep your composure, Bill.
