That dapper man in the goofy stance with the silly tie is Bill Nye The Science Guy.

He’s trying to fly on the red carpet, you know, like Superman. And looks ridiculous doing it. But that’s exactly why we love “Bill, Bill Bill, Bill!”

Oh, and this:

He was basically our childhood hero. I mean, who else was going to teach us that “inertia is a property of matter” and make it cool? Not that science teacher who never let you use the Bunsen burners, that’s for sure. Call him the Godfather of Science, Bill Nye changed the landscape of STEM education as we know it and you will DEAL! Because he’s just that awesome.

But if the past few weeks are any indication, Bill Nye is our adulthood hero too. His hilariously corny but endearing Instagram account proves it. And though he’s had the profile for some time, it’s been getting a lot of love recently, mainly because of this epic ass post:

Dude. That’s a photo of Jay Z. And that’s Bill Nye the Science guy emulating Jay Z. Talk about the “Tanning of America.”

Which brings us to this point — upon closer inspection, we realized Bill Nye’s been winning at Instagram. And in a nostalgic, funny, and informational mash-up of pop culture, science, music and politics, Bill Nye is killing the game and proving he’s the coolest guy to hang out with…one post at a time.

Like seriously, who else could make drinking water instead of wine look cool?

Bill Nye, that’s who. Because we were always going to choose wine, until Bill Nye showed us how classy H2o could be.

And what about that time a 58-year-old Nye went to the bar to watch the Seahawks with “Seattlelites” and drink beer?

Definitely our kind of guy…

And who else to show us the benefits of science and a healthy brain…like meeting beautiful women at the White House…

Must we add that the caption to accompany this picture was “Eat your heart out, Santa?” Bill knows he’s the sh*t…

What about that time he wasn’t afraid to get vulnerable on the ‘Gram…

Dancing With The Stars injury proves that he can’t dance. And he’s okay with that…

And that time he proved he wasn’t just rocking to Magna Carta and The Blueprint…

He’s all inclusive guys…

There was that time he made a deliciously corny “dad” joke that still made us “LOL” 

Science can be tasty too? Lesson learned…

And that time he let his “fellow earthlings” know he knew how to use #ThrowbackThursday properly…

He understands the ways of the New World…

Then there was that time he and astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson got into a fight and he decided to Instagram it instead of giving it to World Star Hip-Hop…

Boys will be boys…

And then he and BFF Neil made up and took a mirror photo like everyone else on Instagram…

Can we be third wheel?

And then took a selfie with President Obama…with Neil not far behind

When Bill Nye eats, so do his friends…

That time he Instagrammed his likeness being used in Trader Joe’s…

We’re sure being his friend means we get to skip the line at the insanely crowded Trader Joe’s by New York University…

And that time he wore this outfit…

Because who doesn’t want to wear LED lights?

But most importantly, that time we learned that a nearly 60-year-old man still plays with toys…

Because being a grown up sucks. And Bill Nye understands that. Thanks for the validation! Now do we have to pay our bills?
