When Neil was recently on Larry King Now, he was asked thought-provoking questions such as, "Are you afraid of dying?" His answers we're so profound, you'd think he was some sort of educator... (sarcasm, he is one.) I thought I'd serve you up some of Neil's knowledge, with a side of GIFs.  See below. #yourewelcome

1. “I fear living a life, where I could’ve accomplished something and didn’t.”

2. “It is the knowledge that I am going to die, that creates the focus that I bring to being alive.”

3. "If we live forever, why ever even get out of bed in the morning, because you always have tomorrow.”

4. "When an elected official stands in denial of climate change.. that is the end of an informed democracy."

and IMO his most profound, by far...

5. "Where's the wire?!"

If you're just as convinced as I am that #NeildeGrasseTyson2016 should be a thing, check out his interview with Larry, where all of these inspirational gems came from.
