bradofarrell: Neil deGrasse Tyson is in my office talking about Doctor Who


We have a life-size Dalek model in the front of the office, and he just said:

“That’s a Dalek. But you REALLY should know that! This is NOT obscure. It’s the most powerful evil thing there ever was.”

He is the wisest man.
