The Daily Ping

The Late Great Mr. Wizard

I realized I’ve talked about him before but I thought it’d be nice to take a moment to thank the late, great Don Herbert – TV’s Mr. Wizard – who died this week at the age of 89. Sure, he led me to get excited about normal household science experiments and sure, I hated the Safari segments of the show, but he still made science not boring for many, many kids.

So thanks, Mr. Wizard. When I jump through a paper hoop this weekend I’ll remember your show.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
