Tweets From Neil deGrasse Tyson's Freshman Dorm Room

Neil deGrasse Tyson is a brilliant, modern-day Carl Sagan. He is also, if we are to judge solely by his Twitter account, a freshman philosophy major, tweeting from his dorm room and rolling blunts on top of his used copy of Plato's Republic.

Imagine, if you will, Neil deGrasse Tyson — celestial tie and all — sprawled across empty pizza boxes atop a twin bed, eyes glazed over as visions of Plato's cave and words like "dialectical" dance in his head. Suddenly, he realises — he's done it. He's figured it out. Neil pulls out his phone, and starts to tweet.

Just wait until his Intro class hears about this.
