No but real talk to my American friends - can you please shut up about how Bill Nye the Science Guy is most children’s first exposure to science - please qualify that statement with “American children” instead of assuming that everyone outside of the USA had the same childhood experience as you
I have noticed this. Also on Reddit, too. And it happens as well with some guy called “Mister Rogers” (sp?).
But funnily enough I have this issue with Steve Irwin too. I was never aware of him when I was growing up. I think I saw/heard more parodies of him than anything else. The first time he was brought to my attention was when he died. So when I see posts venerating him I’m just like ‘__’ ”Ok.”
So I can have plenty disconnect with my own UK’er brethren too.
