Renowned scientist, and certified dude you never want to invite to a party, Neil deGrasse Tyson published a 17 tweet missive this afternoon about the inaccuracies of the 10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu brand. The rush of tweets arrived unprompted, with the science professional committing over an hour of his life to the effort.

“There is no evidence of the existence of a planet composed entirely of Jiu-Jitsu,” deGrasse Tyson tweeted at 3:40 in the afternoon on a Tuesday. “As a martial art, Jiu-Jitsu is an intangible entity, incapable of earning classification as an orbiting planet, let alone the 10th one in a solar system which has only eight.”

DeGrasse Tyson also expressed disappointment in the design of a series of rash guards marketed as alien exoskeletons, noting that it is unlikely any alien race we encountered would be humanoid in nature, let alone possess physical structures similar to our rib cages, or a propensity for grappling martial arts.
