Bill Nye the Science Guy did something quite unexpected while lecturing to hundreds at USC this week; he fainted. After coming round, he compared himself to Lady Gaga. But then things got even more bizarre. When Nye collapsed, instead of leaping to his aid, most of the students in the room just started texting and tweeting. The good news is, Bill got back on his feet and finished the lecture. Sounds like a new lecture on how to help people out who FAINT RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU might be a great next move.
