Goodbye, Mr. Wizard

Damn.

Sure, the show idea was a little creepy: Young children go over to some dude's house and perform "experiments". But where else would I have learned, at such a young age, that liquid nitrogen can freeze just about anything, that steel wool is surprisingly flammable, and that you can determine the height of a tree with a pan of water and a measuring tape (no climbing required)?

Bill Nye's got nothing on Mr. Wizard.
