In case you missed it, Twisted Sifter put up a list of Neil deGrass Tyson tweets. They are, obviously, fantastic:

50 Awesome Quotes by Neil deGrasse Tyson

Some of my favorites:

“If aliens did visit us, I’d be embarrassed to tell them we still dig fossil fuels from the ground as a source of energy.”

“Just an observation: I’ve never, ever, ever, ever, ever, heard a female voice as the narrator of a movie trailer.”
(Miranda July’s voiceovers for The Future could possibly count, although it’s A) not an IN-A-WORLD narration in the traditional sense, and B) it’s also a woman doing a creepy-ass cat voice. So. NGT still wins, I guess.)

“Ages for which you’re in the “prime” of your life: 2 3 5 7 11 13 17 19 23 29 31 37 41 43 47 53 59 61 67 71 73 79 83 89 97 101.”
I’m prime, baby!

“I’ve come to conclude that Fettucini Alfredo is just Mac-and-Cheese for food snobs.”
Not just any food snobs, Dr. T. Cheese snobs. We are a wild and wary crowd with voracious appetites for curdled milk. Do not underestimate us.
