A precocious 6 (and three quarters!)-year-old named Jack got a chance to ask astronomical badass and Cosmos host Neil deGrasse Tyson a question at Boston's Wilbur Theatre last night, and he cut right to the chase. Yo, Neil, he asked, "What's the meaning of life?"
Weddings: Good for you. Nobody cares. This kid, Harlan, and his sweet dance moves (actually, it's more like one really good move): A lone bright spot in several dark hours interacting with people's relatives.
