Wired.com finally says the same thing. Kind of. But very bravely uses the analogy of a “black hole” for which they will be crucified. So good on them!
Tyson is an expert at professionally boring everyone, but he does it with a sense of smugness that the rest of the Internet neckbeard collective can’t get enough of. He’s the living embodiment of reddit’s /r/atheism and /r/politics, a physical manifestation of the phrase “Um, actually.”

The Skeptics aren’t skeptics because they’re skeptical, they’re skeptics because they’re somewhere on the Autism spectrum and they realize that they can elicit a response if they shit all over the bonds of social cohesion – which they fundamentally don’t understand. They resent those “secret rules” that they can’t fathom, and which makes being good at football way more impressive to average Joes than being obsessed and really good at socially-isolating, flab-inducing video games (their thing).
