This video is a perfect example of how funny the simplest things can be.

Here's a video of Neil DeGrasse Tyson speaking about things that most of us will never be able to comprehend.

That alone is cool, because Tyson, the wildly popular astrophysicist who hosts Fox-TV's "Cosmos: A Space-Time Odyssey," has the ability to blow people's minds with just a few words.

But what happens when you slow down what he's saying a bit?

He goes from sounding like one of the smartest men on the planet to sounding COMPLETELY STONED.

It's so, so simple.
