Mr. Wizard ... R.I.P.

If you are (1) in your late 20s to early 30s, (2) grew up in North America, (3) had the cable TV channel Nickelodeon, and (4) are a geek, then you probably remember watching Mr. Wizard's World. Don "Mr. Wizard" Herbert passed away today at the age of 89.

I have fond memories of watching that show in the afternoons after school. I won't lie...I related to the dorky kids he had on the show going "whoa....cool" as an experiment was performed.

I may just go ahead and get the DVDs for my little niece and nephew (perhaps i'll watch some episodes before I send to them).

Check out these great experiments!
