A Bow Tie-Tying Race Between Bill Nye the Science Guy and Glen Tickle at SXSW

Back in March 2014, before Glen Tickle became a Contributing Writer at Laughing Squid, he attended the SXSW festival on behalf of Geekosystem. While he was there, he challenged Bill Nye — perhaps best known for the live-action educational television series Bill Nye the Science Guy — to a bow tie-tying race which resulted in a slightly one-sided competition which was recorded for the ages. Thanks to Tickle’s brave but ultimately foolhardy challenge, we now know that Nye can tie a perfect bow tie in just over 18 seconds.
