A famous scientist tries to prove Tom Brady wrong and makes a huge important point.

Bill Nye just ended deflate-gate once and for all.

Oh hey there, Tom Brady.

Oh hey there, Bill Belichick.

Bill Nye's got your number.

Like most of America, Bill Nye was scandalized when he found out the New England Patriots and Indianapolis Colts were playing with ever-so-slightly deflated balls in the 2015 AFC Championship game. He was ever more confused when Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and coach Bill Belichick claimed the balls deflated naturally because of the cold weather on game day.

But unlike most of America, Bill Nye is a Science Guy.

So he did what any good scientist would do. He did an experiment.

He put some balls in the fridge.

And discovered that when they came out, they were...

(wait for it...)

...pretty much the same!


Oh, and while Bill was sending a message to Brady & Co., he took a time-out to send an even louder message to Congress.

Take it away, Science Guy.

I live in a family with various food intolerances. Thankfully, none of them are super serious, but we are familiar with the challenges of finding alternatives to certain foods, constantly checking labels, and asking restaurants about their ingredients.

In our family, if someone accidentally eats something they shouldn't, it's mainly a bit of inconvenient discomfort. For those with truly life-threatening food allergies, the stakes are much higher.

I can't imagine the ongoing stress of deadly allergy, especially for parents trying to keep their little ones safe.

Recent tragic mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton have sparked a lot of conversation and action on the state level over the issue of gun control. But none may be as encouraging as the most recent one, in which 145 CEOs signed a letter urging the U.S. Senate to take action at their level.
