Proof that one of your childhood heroes was a passive-aggressive dick.

If you're a child of the '80s, you probably remember the show "Mr. Wizard's World," which aired on Nickelodeon from 1983 to 1990. What you most likely don't remember is how much of an impatient A-hole the guy was to the kids on his show. Child after child walked on eggshells around him, trying not to annoy the man who's essentially a crankier, even more disappointed-in-you version of your father. Here's three minutes of subtly dickish Mr. Wizard behavior you've been trying to purge from your memory for decades.
