An Abrupt Burn
Life gives you very few opportunities to roast smart people so when you see a chance like that, you take it. just like this guy did. As you know, Neil deGrasse is a well-known astrophysicist, planetary scientist, and renowned author, so it was surprising when he goofed up in this tweet.
According to him, the “leap day” is misnamed because we’re not leaping anywhere and the calendar is just abruptly catching up with the Earth’s orbit. Um…as this guy pointed out, isn’t leaping just another way of saying abruptly lurching forward? We wonder how deGrasse responded to that tweet.
