Bill Nye the Science Guy Collapses During USC Speech

The LA Times is reporting that one of our favorite science guys appears to be having some health problems.

“Tristan Camacho, a USC senior who attended the lecture, said [Bill] Nye was walking toward the podium when he collapsed mid-sentence. “Then after about 10 seconds, he popped back up with much gusto and asked everybody how long he was out for and went on with a story about how a similar thing happened to him that morning.”

Nye attempted to finish his presentation, but exhibited slurred speech and a certain wobblyness of stance and was eventually led off stage.  Paramedics responded to the scene, but the LA Times was unsure if Nye was determined to need treatment.”

We certainly hope that what ever the problem is, it is minimal, and wish Mr. Nye a speedy recovery.
