            According to him it's just stardust colliding with stardust. Where does his moral authority come from?

                            I'll be honest, there has always been this creepy aura I got from Tyson, especially around women. I noticed it a while back when he was being interviewed by a girl. He's just one of those creepy nerd types that find any excuse to get close to a woman.
