    Well!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Mr. Wizard was even cooler than Bill Nye the science guy.

    Ramm,
    I used to watch Mr. Wizard on our BLACK & WHITE television. We didn't get a color television until 1968.

    God I'm getting old.
    :help:

    Nickelodeon did not exist when I was growing up.

    How old are you? I thought you were about my age.

    Ramm,
    You got to remember that Mr. Wizard was one of if not the first television scientist. He predates computers.
    If it wasn't for him I never could have made my first hydrogen bomb with a plastic trash bag, roll of toilet paper, car battery, battery acid, and battery charger. All though I did have to work a whole summer to pay for all the broken windows in my neighborhood
    :lol: :lol: :lol:
