"Hypothetically," says Bill Nye, "you cannot ask too many questions. You cannot investigate too thoroughly." But the world is not a hypothetical place; it is a real place with real people trying to solve real problems. Prolonged interrogation is a part of that formula, but it cannot be the only part. Nye says that in the social realm, tasks like sewing on a button do not deserve complex philosophical speculation — at least to the person trying to sew the button they don't! The Science Guy supplies a complex answer given his own penchant for scientific investigation, but it's a wonderful reminder of the context in which science occurs, i.e., a very human context.
