A Hump Day Geekfest – Blinding Me With Science!

What better way to finish off my Hump Day Geekfest than with a NASA video about the successor to the Hubble Space Telescope – featuring the voice of The Transformers’ ‘Optimus Prime’ no less, a new product “teaser” video from Amazon (for their new smart phone perhaps?), and an awesome “Sir Isaac Newton vs. Bill Nye” Epic Rap battle – featuring Weird Al Yankovic and a not to be missed, surprise, WWE-style show stealing visitor at the end?!?! 😉

A Hump Day Geekfest – John Oliver and Stephen Hawking

I’ve been a big fan of John Oliver since he was cast member on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. And what self respecting geek doesn’t like Stephen Hawking? Well, the two came together recently for this hilarious, yet very strange, interview on HBO’s new Last Week Tonight With John Oliver show. And I’m about as happy as a man can be that the show has its own YouTube channel!
