A real person.

You may know Miles from segments on CNN or PBS – he’s the go-to Science Guy (other than Bill Nye) for stories about rocket launches and other fun stuff.  Having only been exposed to his talking head role, I never envisioned that he was a “real person”… you know, able to drop pop culture references, use naughty language, etc.

Well, check this out:

Miles O’Brien.  Science guy.  Using the word “douchebag”, referencing Spın̈al Tap, discussing a show about meth cooks.

Excelsior to you, sir!
