    Mr. Wizard - RIP



    This... actually made me sad. Because of Mr. Wizard, I can easily say that he got me into electronics, gadgets, tinkering around with things... I made my first laser, hovercraft and quite a few other things due to him.

    wow I almost forgot about this guy, used to watch him after school - probably the only educational TV I watched as a kid on Nickelodeon.

    He always seemed so uncomfortable around kids.
    I remember learning about water displacement and why man-hole covers are round.

    I always got that impression, too. Loved that show though...

    Another piece of childhood slips away. RIP, Mr. Wiz.

    Aw, man. I remember learning some physics from his show. His show got me very interested in science.

    Never heard of him. That does suck though. Almost as bad as the day Mr. Dressup died.

    Same here,
    His show really kick started a life long love of science and technology for me.
    It is hard to imagine what my life would have been like without his inspiration when i was young.
