Educate Society : Practical Knowledge > Memorization

Beerdy - Bruce Lee Central : He's not a genius. He's smart, eloquent and a very important educator. Einstein was a genius, Richard Feynman, Newton, Beethoven. Not Neil deGrasse Tyson.

fabb91 : Clicked for the porn....stayed for the word.

Rijo Abraham : “what is the height of this spire that we’re in?” “i don’t know. one moment, let me check outside” Interviewer: Okay. Dont come back.

Sumukh : The world is full of PORN.

ZeroRekoning : Its funny that we all know how flawed the education system is but everyone is scared of change and that fear alone delays the growth/evolution of modernized education.

comma period : I love the comments saying how he is not a genius. You are all tackling the word "Genius" too literally! Every one has mixed definitions of a genius and they can be on a spectrum. A genius to an illiterate person is a literate person, and like in this video, my personal opinion here is that Tyson is a genius to me because he's made me and countless others aware of the failing educational system. It's been said and repeated by many before him and it will continue to be said, but to ignore the fact that he and many others have figured out and understood this essential problem we need to address does not make Tyson or others lesser than a genius.

Will Cook : this is a good example of autism as well.. autistic people tend to just see things from a different angle but if given patience and freedom to explore problems in an unconventional way (for example, being the person who walked out of the interview to find the answer), they can figure things out fine. The problem is they are shunned and labeled plagues on society because people are impatient and want certain things that they have been programmed to expect, no matter how illogical it is to obtain. I am not claiming that autistic people are in any way more intelligent or superior to normal people, I do not have the right nor the knowledge to make that statement, but I am saying that this is a very valuable message he is trying to convey - we all need to be more open minded and kind to one another.

Northern_ Savage : *Spell, Cat.* P-O-R-N, Cat.

Babala Habala : Why would this speech makes this man a genius? I always believed the same and I never considered my self as a genius. A matter of fact, Mr. deGrasse.... well, I think he far far isn't a genius, rather a repeater. He isn't a thinker and sometimes he tries to ridicule people who are really thinkers...
