PLAYERS: Jose Canseco
And no, I’m not kidding. In probably the lamest feud of this decade, Jose Canseco and Bill Nye the Science Guy have exchanged words and arguments regarding — you guessed it — science. It all started when Canseco got to thinking about gravity. Canseco stated that “ancient gravity” was weaker than our current gravity. Ya know, 2013 gravity; that good stuff: Ancient gravity was much weaker — Jose Canseco (@JoseCanseco) February 19, 2013 You ever wonder why nothing REALLY big exists today in nature — Jose Canseco (@JoseCanseco) February 19, 2013 elephants today eight tons supersaurs two hundred tons a totally different world. why? — Jose Canseco (@JoseCanseco) February 19, 2013 Animal tissue of muscles and ligaments could not support huge dinosaurs even standing up or pump blood up 60 foot necks — Jose Canseco (@JoseCanseco) February 19, 2013 Gravity had to be weaker to make dinosaurs nimble — Jose Canseco (@JoseCanseco) February 19, 2013 My theory is the core of the planet shifted when single continent formed to keep us in a balanced spin — Jose Canseco (@JoseCanseco) February 19, 2013 The land was farther away from the core and had much less gravity so bigness could develop and dominate — Jose Canseco (@JoseCanseco) February 19, 2013 I may not be 100% right but think about it.How else could 30 foot leather birds fly? — Jose Canseco (@JoseCanseco) February 19, 2013 Enter The Science Guy. In an email to the Huffington Post, Nye questions whether Canseco was joking, or rather if “society [has] failed him completely:” His nickname in Major League Baseball was “The Chemist,” because he was so knowledgeable in the chemistry of performance enhancing drugs and making musculature go big. Reading his recent tweets about the remarkable size of the ancient dinosaurs … it doesn’t sound (read) as though he’s especially fluent in physics. This fills me with either joy or dismay depending on what social media messages he provides us with next. Either he’s in on the joke and is just throwing us all a curve ball with plenty of break, or we as a society have failed him completely with regard to the fundamentals of planetary science. And, in one of Canseco’s more ironic tweets, “The Chemist” fires back at the Science Guy, telling him he has not been relevant since the 1990′s: Bill Nye @thescienceguy has not been relevant since the 90s #doesnotrecognizeancientgravity #headinthesandskeptic #arroganttwit #baddresser — Jose Canseco (@JoseCanseco) February 20, 2013 Yes, he also insulted Bill Nye by calling him a bad dresser. But a little later, Canseco had a slight change of heart and offered up one of his signature hugs to the Science Guy: hey Bill @thescienceguy just re-read your email to huffpost regarding my scientific theories and think I shouldnt have got so mad. hug for u — Jose Canseco (@JoseCanseco) February 20, 2013 All better!
