I absolutely love this story. If you're a regular TV watcher, you'll likely recognize the remarkably affable astrophysicist Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson, be it from his repeat appearances on "The Colbert Report" or his regular hosting duties on "NOVA ScienceNow". If not, know the man has a rare gift for reducing complex science into theories any dope could understand, a gift that also makes him the worst fanboy possible.

The video below is from an audience Q&A session in which the delightful scientist was asked to elaborate on what he thought was the worst "bad science" movie ever made. While you'd expect an astrophysicist to hate a work rife with lunatic science, films like Armageddon, he shares, are easily dismissed because they make zero effort towards accuracy. However, a film that falsely claims to be scientifically accurate, like Titanic, really sticks in the man's caw, "There are movies out there where the director just doesn't care, and if they don't care, why should I care? I'm okay if they don't care. It's when there's a premise of accuracy and precision that they just mess up, that pisses me off."
