(21) The Psychology of Package Thieves

It's no surprise that de-humanizing thieves is easy, they de-humanized us first. But when Mark Rober let us get inside of some package thieves houses and cars...I felt a little like they weren't what I expected...even if I didn't know exactly what I expected.

That left me at a loss...so I decided to talk to a few people...some who had engaged in package theft and one psychologist, Dr. Robert Tyminski, who wrote "The Psychology of Theft and Loss." I've come away from that feeling like I understand this phenomenon a lot better, though I still feel like it's way more complicated than I really get. And as I say in the video, understanding this behavior does not excuse it, and this behavior still makes me really frustrated and mad.

Mark Rober's Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xoxhDk-hwuo

Dr. Tyminsky's book: https://www.amazon.com/Psychology-Theft-Loss-Stolen-Fleeced/dp/0415830893

Andrew Huang's new album: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jN0nvEn4Mpg

The full conversation between me and Dr. Tyminski: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vOIQefDSvtk

And here's what was up with two of the situations being staged (From Mark Rober)
"I put a feeler out for people willing to put a package on their porch and this person (who is a friend of a friend) volunteered to help. To compensate them for their time and willingness to risk putting a package on their porch I offered financial compensation for any successful recoveries of the package. It appears (and I've since confirmed) in these two cases, the 'thieves' were actually acquaintances of the person helping me."

Sometimes, the acceptance of a lack of knowledge is far more valuable than conjecture. That being said, let’s talk about what we do know, because regardless, it is very weird.

Here are some of the things I checked out while working on this:

Rob Reid has an amazing piece in Ars Technica and the companion podcast is really really gooood

The Paper that was published arguing that a solar sail could explain the observations (if you want to look at a LOT OF MATH)

(16) Doing This Makes Me Happy, but Maybe it Doesn't' Seem that Way

Census is Here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/5S9C52R

Vlogbrothers has always brought me joy. The only time it stresses me out is when I feel like other work is interfering with my ability to do it well, or to feel connected to it.

It is definitely true that we have more responsibilities now than we used to. It's also true that I /feel/ more responsibilities than I used to. Like, there is an obligation that comes along with having an audience, and also one that comes along with being a respected member of a community. It means that I'm going to be less forgiving of myself if I make mistakes, which means that I'm going to be more careful, which means I'm going to be less spontaneous and carefree. But I wouldn't do this if it wasn't bringing me joy.

I just want to be really clear about that!

(13) HAIRMERGENCY!

In which John looks like an elderly porcupine and considers the way burnout seems to arrive all at once, just like hairmergencies.

I do feel really overwhelmed and a bit burnt out at the moment, but I also feel tremendously supported and know that I can take breaks as and when needed. Also, I am aware of the fact that I feel this way going into the Project for Awesome every year, so I should not be surprised. And yet somehow I always am! Also, although I do have anxiety problems, I don't want y'all to worry that this is part of a larger thing. I am just stressed out because too much is happening, not because I am falling into the tightening gyre! (...I think!)

This time, I realized that we can search our comments for "John looks like" and "Hank looks like" and similar things to find who (and what) people think we look like over the years. Having literally hundreds of thousands of comments on this channel is an amazing honor, honestly. Reading through comments from deep in the history of this channel was really wonderful.

Also, very funny.

(01) Should I Feel Guilty

Thank you to too much candy for helping me finally make this video. It's obviously something I've been thinking about for a long time. As someone who has a LOT of advantages, it is very clear to me that I have them. But I also think that everyone watching this, just by virtue of having access to high speed internet, also has a lot of advantages that might not be as obvious.

As I say in the video, if you spend time with people who have your same advantages, they don't seem like advantages. And then when someone comes along and tells you that your normal is actually inequality, that can feel like an attack...like Heath finding out that he's ripped up Snickers' wedding flowers. Heath, in that moment, felt attacked by Snickers....like the guilt was something Snickers was doing, not something Heath's own mind was doing to attempt to help him behave differently in the future.

At least, that's the really drawn out metaphor I've decided to go with, I guess!

Congrats to Charlie Plummer and Kristine Froseth on being cast in the Looking for Alaska series; their auditions really blew me away. I just want to put a note here to restate my gratitude to everyone--including the producers and Josh and Stephanie and everyone at Hulu and Paramount TV--for working together to make this happen. I am so hopeful for the series and so excited about it.

(26) The Rigged Election

President Trump exercises his power by having no concern for the truth. It's OK for him to lie because he sees lying as a way of flexing. He lies, the media fact checks, he laughs. It's not about reality, it's about winning. I've started to understand that I live in that world...where, for my president, the truth isn't interesting. A firehose of lies, and an army of perplexed fact checkers, signifying nothing.

But when the lies turn to rot in the foundation of the system, when what sounds good to Trump one day is talking about how an election where he loses isn't a legitimate election, that's where it gets scary. It gets scary because, in one way, it's nothing new...of course President Trump lies about voter fraud, he lies about everything.

And yet, on the other hand, it still shocks me, because the people who love him were supposed to love America...the constitution...tradition. The moment he started saying things like, "If we lose, it's rigged" I thought that would mean something to them. But it doesn't seem like it does. It seems like they love a strongman who looks powerful, even if that strongman is breaking the one fundamental institution that our government is based on by calling on his followers to not accept the outcome of an election that he doesn't win.

(19) This is the scariest graph I've ever seen

Graphs shouldn't be scary! They're just data! And even though I have a masters degree in environmental studies, this graph, once it was explained to me, changed how I felt about the impacts we were having on the planet completely. Of course, being scared by this graph depends on you caring about human life beyond your own lifespan which, like, seems like a fairly easy thing to me, but maybe not to a lot of other people.

Or maybe we're all just assuming that in the 500+ years it would take for the warming to result in a full melt, we'll be able to fix these problems some other way. Fingers crossed...I guess.

(16) Life's Library

Life's Library, a new kind of book club: http://lifeslibrarybookclub.com

In which John announces the project he and Rosianna Halse Rojas have been working on, Life's Library. Here's the idea: Every six weeks for a year, a group of people read a book together, and discuss it on a discord channel. You can choose either a physical subscription--in which you get the book, a letter from me, bookplates made by artists we love, and other cool surprises--or a digital subscription--in which you pick up your own copy of the book and get all the other resources emailed to you. 100% of profits will go to Partners in Health. We don't yet know if there will be enough interest in this idea to make it work, so we aren't launching yet. But if you want to reserve your spot for if/when we do launch, you can sign up now at /redirect?event=video_description&v=FLBjcxR0l70&q=https%3A%2F%2Fstore.dftba.com%2Fcollections%2Flifes-library-book-club&redir_token=nluxHeQiQaTQD-89aC5J3uY-MVZ8MTU0MDI5NjE2M0AxNTQwMjA5NzYz by clicking on the subscription you want and entering your email address at the bottom of the page.

Fans of An Absolutely Remarkable Thing: https://discord.gg/X97RQDu

Let us know if you have any questions. Here's to reading great book together!

(12) Hank Reads from 'An Absolutely Remarkable Thing'

This is the longest Vlogbrothers video, I think, and definitely the one with the most curse words. BUT THIS IS THE TRADITION THAT WAS ESTABLISHED!

In which Hank reads the first chapter of his new book (and first book) about April May, who meets a bizarre robot sculpture in Manhattan on the way home from her terrible user interface design job.

You can find ways to buy it at http://www.hankgreen.com

p.s. I'll be in comments, but one thing I want to note here is that productivity need not be about work, or maximizing output or whatever. There are lots of ways to be productive. To me, productivity is mostly a matter of recognizing that time is what we have.

(24) The Top 10 John Green GIFs

Happy Birthday John!

It was interesting going through this because I couldn't help but think about how what you put out does not necessarily equal what gets brought in. John is always such a kind and thoughtful and careful person, but so many of the GIFs in this list were him being angry or upset or frustrated...of course GIFs are in many ways units of emotion, and so of course emotion is going to be conveyed in them, but I think it says something that the most common emotions were forms of anger.

Also, someone please explain the book sniffing to me!!

(17) My Worst Job Search Fail

Looking for a job is the absolute worst. The people giving the jobs have to do everything they can to be efficient, while the people who want the jobs (and aren't being paid to apply for them) need to do so much work to try and convince the other person that they're worth hiring. It's a huge power imbalance, but there's no other way for it to work (as far as I can tell, anyway.)

Rejection is super awful and every time I've applied for a job and not gotten an interview I felt terrible. Every time I got an interview and didn't get the job, I felt even worse. But when you find the right position, it can be really wonderful. Let's be honest about the actual situation, which is that not getting a job has no bearing on your worth as a person, and it's completely possible, likely even, that the company ended up hiring the wrong person.

But they have limited resources and had to make a call. They would've been lucky to have you!! AND SO WOULD THAT GUY AT THAT NON PROFIT WHO MADE FUN OF MY APPLICATION!

(10) My Giant Robot Suit

I don't think having a following on the internet means you have to never engage or defend yourself. But I think that you have to behave differently than you would if you didn't have a following. And I know that thinking about this from the perspective of the person in the robot suit is like, "Oh, boo hoo, you're rich and famous I'm so sorry someone was mean to you once." But now that the internet exists, occasionally the once infathomable distance between a few people chatting in their social space and a super mainstream celebrity, occasionally collapses to literally no distance at all.

Celebrities don't feel like anything more than people...they look in the mirror and see their soft, squishy bodies. So when they walk in on a group of people saying terrible things, it's understandable that they would react. But those people are seeing the robot suit, not the person.

But I think we should realize that we're all wearing robot suits these days, and that we're all a lot more powerful than we think we are. It's very easy to go too hard these days, whether you've been building your suit for a decade or whether you're just a simple quiet person with a Twitter account.

(03) How Do Adults Make Friends

Esther Earl died in 2010, and when her family asked her how she would like to be remembered on her birthday, she gave the most good answer possible and said she wanted us to celebrate love among family and friends. Which is why, Every August 3rd, people take a moment to say "I love you" to the people they care about.

None of these problems are new, but it just gets harder to believe that strangers are worth investing time in as you get older. That's not a true belief, but it is a belief. And it's one of the reasons why community organizations (like churches, clubs, or volunteer orgs) provide so much value. They give us ways to imagine strangers as having more value, and provide shortcuts to finding people we'll be more likely to mesh with. School and work can also provide those services.

But when we're exposed to /so many/ people that seem so valuable and cool through social media (either because they really are living exceptional lives or because they are only showing the exceptional parts) we lose sight that what makes people big deals isn't their lifestyle or how exceptional their job is...it's just that they are people. If we could remember that, I think it would be a lot easier to make and maintain friendships as adults.

(27) Why Some Environmentalists Hate Captain Planet

All of this is much easier to see in retrospect, which I think is telling. It's hard to see bias in the moment, and it's easy to feel justified in simplifying the stories of your adversaries when you're in the middle of what you see as a war. But that's why it's good to look back at things like this.

I think it's fine to create content for any age that accurately portrays the difficulties we face as a species...that's a completely apolitical act. But while the creators of Captain Planet will tell you that each of the villains represents the extremes, not the norms, none of those things are (at least in the beginning) modeled in nuanced ways. I am particularly troubled by the portrayal of the laborers as sub-human. It's one thing for billionaire Looten Plunder to be terrible (and yes, his pony tail is appropriately grotesque) but modeling the people who are laboring as garbage collectors or machine operators as monsters, at this point, downright pisses me off.

(13) Why Do So Few Countries Have Nukes

There are a lot of perspectives on this one, and in many ways we are lucky that it is so hard to separate one isotope of uranium from another because, if it were easier, we probably would have destroyed ourselves by now.

One thing I didn't hit on in this video is that there are some experts that argue that the world has experienced greater peace and prosperity because of nuclear weapons and that they have done more good than harm. That's a commonly held viewpoint...that the threat of nuclear weapons has prevented major powers from going to war with each other. This has maybe increased the rate of proxy wars, which has been bad for the Middle East, some of Africa, and a particular Asian Peninsula, but it's better, they say, than World War III.

What I want to remember, however, is that this isn't just something that was inevitable...so thank you to everyone who worked to create this more stable world. I hope we can maintain it.

Here's the quick interview I did with Jeffrey Lewis.

(06) This Ends in Death

Audiobooks, UK signing, hammers in bushes! Much excitement! I consume a LOT of my books in audio book format so I have a lot of thoughts about how I like it done. Getting the test audio from the narrator was, for me, a bigger moment than seeing the cover or the printed book for the first time. Just so exciting!

Also, when I say "this" ends in death, I think I mean "everything eventually" and not so much "vlogbrothers." Obviously, I am very uncomfortable with the idea that the vlogbrothers channel will end in the death of one of us and I don't know how to feel about that, which is, I guess, a pretty big part of the human experience.

If you find the hammer please let me know so that people will know it's been found. Twitter is probably best!

So happy to be working with Kristen Sieh! While she has been in those TV shows I mentioned, most of her work is in theater, which you can find out about here: http://theteamplays.org/

(29) Why is the Disney 'D' So Weird

I am so bummed that this video isn't 15 minutes long. There is so much more to discuss. The Disney brand is fascinating, including the ways in which that brand reaches so far beyond any set of words or bands and into a deep cultural idea. It is, in some ways, outside of what we usually consider a brand, and in other ways maybe the most powerful brand outside of, like, nation states.

Thanks to these people for their knowning or un-knowing help:
Kevin from http://www.youtube.com/defunctland
Lindsay from https://www.youtube.com/user/chezapoctube

Here's a good tidbit I had to cut from this video...in 1922, which Ubbe Iwerks (co-creator of Mickey Mouse) first met Walt Disney, Walt was 19 years old and was literally practicing variations on his signature! Disney's constant variation of his signature apparently started at an early age, and the piece of his signature that he seemingly couldn't settle on was the D. In the end, it was likely not Disney who created this iconic D, but someone working at the company after his death.

Walt Disney was obsessed with the "Disney" image...with his own image and that of his creations. That was certainly unhealthy. It also probably had some seriously negative consequences on him and the people around him. But it also played a part in creating something wonderful.

I REALLY HOPE I DIDN'T GET ANYTHING TOO WRONG IN THIS VIDEO!

(15) Sports are Dumb

John's World Cup video is here: /watch?v=B10QWgsAWzw

I often have an impulse to discount anything that is broadly popular as being obviously "lowest common denominator" kind of content. But in math, the lowest denominator is the ideal one...do you want everything we enjoy to be some kind of ridiculous non-reduced fraction!? That denominator is something that unifies us, and so I'm going to try to watch some World Cup this year. I don't know how on Earth I'm going to find the time to do that, but I did just buy a temporary TV subscription so I could get it.

Thanks John.

I hope this video is broadly unifying. I recognize that the title, and the thumbnail that disagrees with it, are confusing and meant to draw attention, but hopefully the message they send make sense by the end of the video.

(08) Intentionally Ignorant - Does Free Will Exist

Oh My....you're in the description. So, the way I tended to deal with the question of free will in my earlier days was that I of course make decisions, it's just inevitable that I will make the decision I made. The fact that it was inevitable did not make it not a decision. The fact that it could be pre-determined what I would do with my free will did not mean I didn't have free will.

Of course, it did. To me that seems like a palliative. Now, instead, I just choose to not accept something that I know is true. I do the same thing with regard to universal meaning and my inevitable demise. And, honestly, there a trillion other truths I ignore every day, so I think it's OK.

I also recognize that the question of Free Will is far from settled among the philosophers and scientists and physicists and all of those people. This isn't a "does free will exist" video, it's a "here's how I react to the fact that lots of people thing it doesn't" video. And so, maybe this video shouldn't have been called intentionally ignorant maybe it should have been called "I don't want to know!"

8. I'm not one of those people who think we're on the verge of conquering death, but we are delaying death significantly, although much work remains to be done, especially among impoverished communities.

Nothing like this has ever happened before--we've never seen a consistent, worldwide increase in life expectancy. Like, never. So that is worth celebrating. /redirect?redir_token=XtMeeMSZsmFiwHFBMUJkGAHZl398MTUyNzMzMjczM0AxNTI3MjQ2MzMz&q=https%3A%2F%2Fourworldindata.org%2Flife-expectancy&v=AU5xSHQpbgE&event=video_description

I get really scared when I hear that like 90% of kids what to be YouTubers when they grow up. It's a good job, but it's also a job that not everyone can have or should have. And I think, when we want something too much, we end up doing it even when it turns out we don't actually like it...or we do it in a way that isn't productive because it feels like winning even when it's destructive.

A thing I've noticed a lot about creators who have come up recently (the ones I spend time loving, anyway) is that they've spent time developing either a craft (which includes film making and story telling) or other skills and knowledge that allow them to build a channel as, like, a professional gamer, an artist, an animator, even a linguist or an engineer. It's still hard...but that stuff tends to require less work and a less cut-throat attitude because you can find smaller niches that are still great and supportive and exciting.

I've had such a crazy run on this platform, and in the public eye...and I think I've come out of it with a pretty stable identity and healthy attitude...I hope I can find good ways to help other people deal with both getting big and not getting big in this odd new world.

(04) When to Attack a Moose

I feel like this video could have easily been adapted into a medium-length non-fiction book. As soon as I start talking about identity, and story, and how we determine who we are, I basically can keep going forever. So I hope this wasn't too much, but also didn't leave so much out that it feels empty and vacuous and useless or, worse, dangerously simplistic.

Particularly simplified is the idea that "caring what other people think about you" prevents you from being "really bad." I don't actually know if that's true. But I think that caring what other people think about you is, like, maybe the only thing that gives society and culture enough cohesion to operate productively.

(20) This Video is About Marijuana

Uh Oh.

OK. A thing I didn't say, that I probably should have, is that we haven't actually had a chance to do as much research on marijuana as we should have. Edibles have different effects than smoking which has different effects from vaping. Different strains have different amounts of THC and CBD and that matters. These are both psycho-active compounds and they both have effects on your brain. That's why they get you high, but the highs are different and the effects (and thus potential negative side-effects are different.)

But it's also very hard to even STUDY marijuana because it's illegal...so this is both another reason to decriminalize (to make research easier) and a reason why it's more complicated (we don't know for sure how many of the negative effects we've teased out.

(13) Who is in Control

Facebook is having a crisis now, but the amount of control that it, and other social platforms have over us, has been at crisis levels for sometime. It wasn't clear until 2016, but my biggest concern is that we're still only at the beginning of this. It turns out that affecting human perspective is not all that complicated.

Right now, we're at the point where computers have gotten good at teaching themselves to keep our attention with content that humans are creating. I'm deeply worried about what happens when the computers get good at not just serving up, but creating the content. Advertisers are already working on that exact technology, and if it helps them sell detergent fine.

But if it gets good at selling ideas, we'll be in a new era of human history. I don't know if Congress will be savvy enough to regulate that, and I don't know if Mark Zuckerberg will be good enough or even powerful enough to control it.

Thanks to John and Taha Khan (https://www.youtube.com/user/KhanStopMe) for advising me on this and helping me get things right.

How to tax income is a huge part of our political discourse these days, but a lot of details get lost in ideological debates, so I thought I'd look at how deductions for mortgage interest and charitable contributions work, and whose mortgage interest and nonprofit donations are ACTUALLY deductible.

(06) How to Stop Being Late Forever (advice for myself and other chronically late people)

Book Links: http://www.hankgreen.com

For me, lateness is often a kind of weird procrastination. I decide to leave for a thing at the last possible moment, which is often significantly later than that. But punctuality is extremely valuable and valued in our society. There are huge benefits to being on time, everything from better relationships to higher income. It shows a capability for self control that some people have innately and others, frankly, have to hack their way toward.

I'm working on getting myself there, but don't forget to also forgive yourself when you slip up and show up a few minutes late in the same way you would forgive someone else.

(23) Trump, Guns, and Net Neutrality...With Governor Steve Bullock!

70% of Montanans voted for Donald Trump, but a Democrat was reelected Governor. How is that possible? Well, I have an expert on the topic, that very governor.

Extra Footage Here: /watch?v=rtFCR_RkGz8

I'm confused about how to be an American right now. There are days when I don't have a lot of hope. That's especially true because of how deeply divided our country feels right now, and also because of the erosion of faith in government, the media, social services, and the FBI.

But I also worry about the loss of faith in the legal system, the military, and law enforcement. These things need to be fixed, and thus they need to be criticized...but at a certain point, that criticism basically becomes calls for revolution or abolition of the systems that have created a prosperous and stable society for many (though, clearly not all) people.

Thanks for watching this long video, I feel very lucky to have been able to make it.

(16) The Most Popular Word in the World

There is literally an entire book about these two letters: http://amzn.to/2GyJyla

Is OK the most popular word in the world? That depends on how you look at it. It's been argued that it's the most /spoken/ word in the world, but I have to call BS on that. The most spoken word has got to be "the" or "I" or the equivalent in Mandarin.

But Popular is a more subjective measure...and one that I'm choosing because I think that "OK"s adoption as a loanword is so extremely common. Now, there may be words that have been adopted into more languages...I'm thinking of "taxi." But "OK" is adopted for everyday conversational use, whereas "taxi" is only for specific situations. So that's the completely subjective argument I'm using to say that "OK" is the most popular world in the world.

So, something that didn't fit into the video...we think of memes as these new-fangled things, and definitely the way they spread now (and the speed at which they spread) is different, but acronyms from comical mis-spellings indicate that memes have been around for a long time, we just didn't call them memes. And the fact that the Democratic Party latched onto one to try and promote a candidate that had a less-than-american-sounding feels much more 2018 than 1838 to me. Van Buren was actually the first president who wasn't of British ancestry (or British himself) which was a big deal at the time.

Another thing I didn't get into the video...the creation of OK a little bit depended on our society becoming more text-based and literate. Telegrams helped this, but newspapers did as well. The extent to which these technologies revolutionized our society and our ability to communicate fast and wide is really hard to understand now, but is maybe the kind of thing we should be thinking about as our own world is being revolutionized by new communication technologies. We don't know, ultimately, what the affect will be. But they will be long-ranging and maybe invisible, just as OK has been for the last 175 years.

(09) John's Best Gift to Me

I could have kept making this video for days...but I think the biggest, most interesting thing I left out is that having certainty about what is valuable and awesome and cool is really great. Knowing without question that every moment I sunk into loving that band was /worth it/ was really nice...it meant I didn't have to fret about whether I was wasting in my time.

These days, we really REALLY value being able to make our own individual minds up about every single thing, but I kinda miss the days when I could just deeply and suddenly believe that whatever John thought was cool was cool. It was less effort, but also less stressful. I think the way we're living right now is definitely the weird way, and it results in a whole lot of stress and anxiety and maybe sometimes even depression.

I'm not saying we should go back to living in a world where whatever the leader of the tribe said was the thing to do was THE THING TO DO OR YOU DIED. But maybe a little bit more faith in other people's tastes would be a little more relaxing.

OK! Thanks for reading!

(02) The Best (Recent) Book Covers Including MINE!

Pre-Order now :-) http://www.hankgreen.com

OK, this is exciting and scary. So, while I wait for the time at which we are all coordinated for this thing to go live let me tell you how this worked.

First, the designer got the manuscript, then they read it, then they sent me three sample covers that I did not like. They were obviously rough mockups, but I didn't like the direction. There was good energy, but all of the fonts were hand-written and, honestly, I wanted it to look visibly distinct from a John Green book.

So then I sent them a few things:
1. Three images that I really liked that were not book covers. They all had bold colors, repeating patterns, and felt illustrated but now hand-drawn.

2. A few of my favorite recent book covers.

3. A few lines, less than 400 words about what I really hoped for that included this sentence: "Getting the mix between high energy and fun and deadly serious is something I thought a lot about when writing, and it's hard, but it may be an impossible thing to hope for in a cover design."

Then a few weeks went by during which time I was assured that a lot of time and thought were going into sending a long a more finished product that took my thoughts into account. I feel very lucky that I got to have this much feedback.

What I then got in my email was five designs...three of which were color variations on the final product. And I was like, "YES! THIS!" but then of course I had some thoughts. I asked for some other color treatments, and I also suggested adding the eyes to one of the Carls, which I think is a very cool touch. In the end, I went with one of the original color schemes but was glad I had seen the others anyway. And with a couple of very very minor finishing thoughts we had it.

I have a lot more thoughts on covers and I could critique great design all day, but I only had four minutes. I feel bad that there are so many great covers out there (and on my bookshelf right now) that I didn't get to talk about, but there are only so many minutes in a vlogbrothers video and only so many hours in a day!

Thanks everybody, I hope you like it!

(23) Dear Young People, You Terrify Me

Once I started writing this video I realized that there was a great deal that I wasn't going to be able to fit into a 4 minute video. There are times, like when I'm watching a Logan Paul video or reading about Tide Pod challenges that the natural response for an older adult is to just overwhelming anxiety for next generation.

And, indeed, I've watched as bad ideas (much worse than tide pods) have taken over young people in a way I did not expect and am extremely stressed out by. I worry a lot about people who figure out how to capture this energy for their own gain and do not consider the responsibility that their power brings, or think that they are righteous when they are in fact leaning into culturally destructive ideas.

But also, I have found the level of responsibility pretty paralyzing. John and I have both been shying away from cultural criticism on this channel because, like, I feel more and more drawn to stability and that means compassion for people who are intolerant, but don't necessarily know they are. And I feel like people often (maybe rightfully, I don't know) get roasted for that kind of behavior.

So this video was a surface-level discussion of a deeper and more intense thing that I've been experiencing, and that is pushing me a little bit away from four-minute explorations of culture because:

1. I don't know if I have the guts to put myself on the line for things that I completely recognize I might be wrong about.

2. I don't know if internet-based, echo-chamber-riddled discussion about any of these things is actually helping.

Also, a thing I cut from this is how, just like genetic mutations usually do nothing, I believe we can freak out about cultural changes that actually have no real effect on people. And sometimes the changes are absolutely negative. The way brains are set up after new dopamine channels open around puberty to when the frontal cortex finishes developing in the mid-20s is a recipe for indulging in bad ideas, and individuals certainly suffer when that carries them to the wrong place. Culture at large can suffer as well.

But it can also mean great things...great change...great action. And that's how I'm feeling right now.

(09) This is Going to Seem Dumb, but Stick with Me

In which Hank talks about his Sidewalk Moment.

This video was initially around a minute longer, and most of what I talked about was:

1. How that comment about interviewing sidewalks weirdly made me see the world in a different way.

2. A little more about making things with the understanding that they are bigger than you and your life and that that is the most rewarding way I have found to experience creation.

3. A little about the history of Missoula, which tripled in population between 1900 and 1910, which is why a lot of sidewalks were laid down in the 1910s and 1920s.

4. A little about how Missoula treats these maker stamps. Everyone sorta unanimously tries to protect them, so you'll walk around and entire sidewalks will have been replaced, but the one square that has the makers stamp will have been left, even if it's a little cruddy and eroded and cracked. Sometimes, when they have to be replaced, people will even cut the stamp out and sink it in the ground next to the sidewalk.

(26) I Wrote a Book. I WROTE A BOOK. How did I do that

Preorder? http://www.hankgreen.com

This video is not actually about how to write a book, if anything it's about how to find the motivation, which I think (for me at least) was a lot more important. I think I realized that, often, I wasn't writing a thing because it wasn't that important to me, I wasn't that excited about it, and ultimately I was more into the idea of having people read a book I wrote than I was into the idea of writing a book.

I'm not saying you don't need that first thing, but t helps to have the second one too.

I also 100% recognize that this is all much easier if you don't have to worry the whole time about whether a publisher or agent will at least read your book and whether you have friends who are published authors who will help you revise and and vouch for you (thank you Patrick Rothfuss for that, btw.)

So, yeah, things are easier to do if you see the path, and understand where you might fit in.

Thanks, Sean!!

I say in this video that I can't even actually endorse bitcoin because I see a shadow of a lot of familiar foolishness in it. It's very easy to see the flaws in our existing financial systems. It's too hard to move money around, big institutions take a cut when they don't deserve one, and it gives governments too much control over what people do with their money.

But it's easy to misunderstand or even be completely ignorant of the problems new systems will create. It's proven very easy to steal bitcoin from people, and once it's stolen the privacy of bitcoin makes that theft impossible to investigate. Transaction fees actually have started to rise, and already governments are placing the exact restrictions on bitcoin that they have on other money because people are using it to buy illegal things, avoid taxes, and launder money from illegal activity.

Whether or not I thought it was a good currency or store of value, I would not want to be be involved with any of that. But, nonetheless, I am very thankful for Sean's bitcoin and am very happy we were able to give its value to Partners in Health.

(05) Making a Better YouTube

So...do you reform or revolt...that is the question. To me the question isn't whether we reform, it's how. And I would like to talk some about that. I think there's an easy argument to make that much of the problem with YouTube isn't YouTube's problem, it's a cultural problem, and this article in The Verge (that I agree with only partially) talks about that the best I've seen so far: /redirect?q=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.theverge.com%2F2018%2F1%2F4%2F16850798%2Flogan-paul-youtube-social-media-twitch-moderation&v=_8hvVUIKkPw&redir_token=gqQuZ5BBnba2LIm9riCUP3r8QK98MTUxNTI3NjAxM0AxNTE1MTg5NjEz&event=video_description

There isn't a way, at least right now, to create a YouTube alternative that would work for creators. Many people have tried...some are trying right now...but I don't think it's possible. So we have to do our best to make this platform and this community the best thing we can. And that's hard and long and it might feel foolish since, ultimately, it's not a democracy, it's a corporation, but it's where we are. And I think there is space to make it better, but we won't be able to do that unless there are good ideas that are getting pushed and implemented. So, let's go there. Please please share your ideas.

Hank

(29) Can You Ever Really Change

As John was saying in his last video, I think that we don't give ourselves enough opportunities for self reflection, and I think personality tests can help with that, but I also think they imply that there is something overly concrete about the things they are testing, and that no self is carved in stone.

We have a SciShow Psych episode about more recent understanding of the failures of personality tests here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JN6_K6ALeZI&t=2s

(01) Let's Talk About Stress!

In which Hank discusses loanword adaptation for two minutes in order to distract himself from the crushing reality of all of what he must do.

One thing that I did not say in this video...that's just for you dear dedicated dooblydoo reader...is that "stressing out" as we sometimes call it (focusing on the worry rather than the work) is a kind of flight. It is the easiest, most monkey-brain thing to do. There is nowhere to run, and we don't want the unpleasantness of engaging with the fight, so we flee into fear and it eats us because we literally have no defense against it.

If you'd like to learn more about stress and our physiological responses to it, here's a SciShow on how presistent stress harms our bodies: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ViWCk74Bu8k

And here's a Crash Course I did on emotion, stress, and health: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4KbSRXP0wik

Also linked in this video is the video I did on hankschannel on the processes I've used to deal with things I can't deal with: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rr8wIiypS_g

VidCon: http://www.vidcon.com

So, the word "Bizarro" has two different meanings. It can just be a fun way of saying the word "bizarre" but it can also mean an alternate, more peculiar reality. That meaning comes from the "Bizarro World" comics of the 1960s, where the world is a cube and Superman is bad...that kind of thing.

So this is a Bizarro History of Black Friday...a history of a different Earth. I hope you like it.

HEALTH UPDATE: Hi, so I shot this video last week and then when I went upstairs, the world turned upside down rather literally and I was overcome with an incredible vertigo that made me barf for days. It appears that I have something called labyrinthitis. I'm getting better, but recovery is slow, so I'll try to keep making videos, but I won't be around as much as usual. Sorry!

(10) The Weirdest Living Animals - (With Dr. Lawrence Turtleman)

Last Day of Pizzamas: http://www.dftba.com/pizzamas

Hello,

My name is Dr. Lawrence Turtleman and in this video, I discuss animals (and one plant) that have found themselves alone on taxonomic islands. These organisms common ancestors with currently living organisms stretch back tens or even hundreds of millions of years. The tuatara split off from other animals over 150 million years ago!

Sometimes these organisms are referred to as "living fossils" because they often look very similar to fossil forms of them that we find, but this is actually somewhat innacurate for a few different reasons (see this episode of Eons: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mPvZj2KcjAY)

Thank You For Watching!

- Dr. Lawrence Turtleman

(27) The Embarrassing Secret to my Productivity

IMPORTANT NOTE
I'm not saying that this is the best or only way. I have lots of friends who go to 100% every time and they are extremely prolific and effective creators. And they make things that are better than the things I make. I also am not trying to say that I don't think the stuff I make is good, I think "good" is a combination of time, skill, talent, and ability to choose and understand your own objectives. I just shave on time spent and do my best to optimize the other stuff.

This is what I do, not what I suggest other people do.

In general, when people try to sell you on some life-vision for being an ULTLA EFFECTIVE PERSON, what they're really trying to do is make you feel like you haven't accomplished enough or aren't awesome enough, and thus need them to become the thing you should be but which you're being held back from by some lack of knowledge. I hate that shit so much, and I really hope I'm not doing it here. Every person will find different ways of doing things that help the world and other people, which is the important thing.

But...don't let perfection hold you back from making things or doing things. Revel in your imperfection, because perfect doesn't exist.

Laura Miller in Slate about the story I'm telling and the story that's telling me: /redirect?q=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.slate.com%2Farticles%2Farts%2Fbooks%2F2017%2F10%2Fjohn_green_s_turtles_all_the_way_down_reviewed.html&redir_token=Dkag6ArFc2JT2aGk9MtycQTtJKl8MTUwODQ0MzIxM0AxNTA4MzU2ODEz&event=video_description&v=TXo-qOQNK3E And Constance Grady in Vox on "an existential teenage scream." /redirect?q=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.vox.com%2Fculture%2F2017%2F10%2F10%2F16455496%2Fjohn-green-turtles-all-the-way-down-review&redir_token=Dkag6ArFc2JT2aGk9MtycQTtJKl8MTUwODQ0MzIxM0AxNTA4MzU2ODEz&event=video_description&v=TXo-qOQNK3E

(13) Behind the Sides

In which Hank takes you behind the scenes at the McGlohon Theater for a discussion of what "behind the scenes" is and why it's romanticized despite being...a little gross, and also why it's beautiful despite being ugly.

(10) Turtles All the Way Down!!! A Reunion Video

In which John Green's new novel Turtles All the Way Down is published. If you've read the book, SPOILERY subreddit for discussion and asking me questions: https://www.reddit.com/r/tatwdspoilers/ Please NO SPOILERS here. Read some reviews:

The New York Times calls Turtles All the Way Down my "most astonishing" novel, among many other really lovely things: /redirect?v=tfHCtgyT-oQ&redir_token=3Qna9CpLT3jNM3RUIwdH57cs9HB8MTUwNzg0NTYxM0AxNTA3NzU5MjEz&event=video_description&q=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.nytimes.com%2F2017%2F10%2F10%2Fbooks%2Freview-john-green-turtles-all-the-way-down.html

The Wall Street Journal calls it tender, wise, and moving: /redirect?v=tfHCtgyT-oQ&redir_token=3Qna9CpLT3jNM3RUIwdH57cs9HB8MTUwNzg0NTYxM0AxNTA3NzU5MjEz&event=video_description&q=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.wsj.com%2Farticles%2Fthe-tightening-gyre-1507608059

This New York Times story talks about my own mental illness and the process of writing the book, which it calls "wrenching and revelatory."

Booklist in a starred review wrote, "it’s a challenging but richly rewarding read. It is also the most mature of Green’s work to date and deserving of all the accolades that are sure to come its way." /redirect?v=tfHCtgyT-oQ&redir_token=3Qna9CpLT3jNM3RUIwdH57cs9HB8MTUwNzg0NTYxM0AxNTA3NzU5MjEz&event=video_description&q=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.booklistonline.com%2FTurtles-All-the-Way-Down-Green-John%2Fpid%3D9128995

I really hope you like the book, and thanks to everyone who has stuck with me the last six years as I've struggled to write it. Very excited to share it with you today.

(06) The World's Largest Fruits

In a lot of ways, it's pretty wonderful that we live at a time where we can benefit from the work and intelligence of literally thousands of generations of people. We rarely think of the people alive today who work to bring us are food, let alone the people tens of thousands of years ago who began the process of creating the hundreds of different varieties of food we find in our grocery stores today.

Thanks to all those dead people!

(29) What's This Video About

This video is two different videos, sorry about that!

Some great Star Trek TNG Episodes
If you watch Star Trek TNG from the beginning, which I heartily suggest you do, you will notice that it...kinda sucks. The first and second season have very few episodes that knock it out of the park.

The good news is that Star Trek happened before TV dramas started being serialized, so with the exception of (very important and rewarding) character development and universe backstory, you can pretty much watch any episode of Star Trek TNG you want to in any order.

This is NOT the case for later series..DS9 in particular was part of the push for serialized "you must watch every episode or you will fall behind" style TV.

So, without further ado, here are some of the most "What's it About" episodes of TNG, that also have great story and (most importantly) great Picard monologues.

Season 4 Episode 21 - The Drumhead. Especially important given current political conversations.

Season 2 Episode 9 - Measure of a Man. I am a big fan of episodes that focus on Data so...this one.

Season 5 Episode 25 - The Inner Light. I think about this episode all the dang time.

Season 4, Episode 14 - Clues. Just a really inventive and exciting tale of successful diplomacy, which isn't easy.

I mean, I could keep doing this all day...but that's a good start.

Thanks the Ryan Ruark and MZ Chase for help with the title!

(26) Trump and Russia - An Introduction to What We Know (and What We Don't)

In which John discusses the Russian government's interference in the 2016 U.S. Presidential election, allegations of collusion against members of Donald Trump's campaign, what is known about various Trump campaign officials' relationship to Vladimir Putin's regime, and also what we don't know. SOURCES BELOW:

CORRECTION: Nixon resigned before he was impeached.

Vladimir Putin personally oversaw efforts by the Russian government to affect the U.S. Presidential election outcome in favor of Donald Trump, according to both the Department of Homeland Security and the Officer of the Director of National Intelligence:

Trump campaign removed language from the Republican Party platform supporting Ukraine in their ongoing conflict with Russia:

The Putin regime engaged in a disinformation campaign, attempted to access several states' election data, and oversaw the hacking of the DNC and sent the DNC and John Podesta emails to wikileaks:

(19) Why Cities

In which John discusses the agricultural revolution, the development of permanent settlements, and whether cities were good news. SOURCES BELOW.
Hank is publishing a novel next year! /redirect?redir_token=mR8ZzDvpNyf4M5n5mYwSEy8Pnsx8MTUwNTk4ODAxNEAxNTA1OTAxNjE0&event=desc&q=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.nytimes.com%2F2017%2F09%2F19%2Fbooks%2Fyoutube-star-hank-green-first-novel.html
But before then, we are going on tour to celebrate my new novel, Turtles All the Way Down: /redirect?redir_token=mR8ZzDvpNyf4M5n5mYwSEy8Pnsx8MTUwNTk4ODAxNEAxNTA1OTAxNjE0&event=desc&q=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.turtlesallthewaydownbook.com%2F%23tour

SOURCES:

Hunter-gatherers have less famine than agriculturalists: /redirect?redir_token=mR8ZzDvpNyf4M5n5mYwSEy8Pnsx8MTUwNTk4ODAxNEAxNTA1OTAxNjE0&event=desc&q=http%3A%2F%2Frsbl.royalsocietypublishing.org%2Fcontent%2F10%2F1%2F20130853 This gets into some of the archeology and analysis of human remains that indicates that hunter-gatherers lived on average longer and healthier lives than agriculturalists.

The Case against Civilization inspired this video and includes the statistics about how much hunter-gatherers work in food acquisition and domestic labor: /redirect?redir_token=mR8ZzDvpNyf4M5n5mYwSEy8Pnsx8MTUwNTk4ODAxNEAxNTA1OTAxNjE0&event=desc&q=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.newyorker.com%2Fmagazine%2F2017%2F09%2F18%2Fthe-case-against-civilization

This article also explores some of the complexities of agriculture's development: /redirect?redir_token=mR8ZzDvpNyf4M5n5mYwSEy8Pnsx8MTUwNTk4ODAxNEAxNTA1OTAxNjE0&event=desc&q=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.npr.org%2Fsections%2Fthesalt%2F2016%2F07%2F15%2F485722228%2Fwhere-did-agriculture-begin-oh-boy-its-complicated

The book discussed in "The Case against Civilization" is called AGAINST THE GRAIN, and while I disagree with a lot that's in it, I also think it's an interesting read and outlines both its case for why cities developed and other people's cases. I also leaned on the book SAPIENS by Yuval Noah Harari for some of the theories about why cities developed.

Our World in Data is an amazing resource for understanding long-term trends in human history. That's where I got the graph about the dramatic reduction in absolute poverty the world is experiencing: /redirect?redir_token=mR8ZzDvpNyf4M5n5mYwSEy8Pnsx8MTUwNTk4ODAxNEAxNTA1OTAxNjE0&event=desc&q=https%3A%2F%2Fourworldindata.org%2Fextreme-poverty%2F

And also the graph about the declining number of hours worked: /redirect?redir_token=mR8ZzDvpNyf4M5n5mYwSEy8Pnsx8MTUwNTk4ODAxNEAxNTA1OTAxNjE0&event=desc&q=https%3A%2F%2Fourworldindata.org%2Fworking-hours%2F

And lastly, the median U.S. household income really is higher (even after adjusting for inflation) than it ever has been before: /redirect?redir_token=mR8ZzDvpNyf4M5n5mYwSEy8Pnsx8MTUwNTk4ODAxNEAxNTA1OTAxNjE0&event=desc&q=https%3A%2F%2Fen.wikipedia.org%2Fwiki%2FHousehold_income_in_the_United_States

(01) What Everyone Gets Wrong About Global Warming

Throughout this video I say "probability curve" when a statistician would say "probability distribution." I just want to say that I'm aware of this, and that it's a choice I intentionally made because I felt like it made it easier to understand.

While I would very much like to get deep into probability functions, what they mean, and how they work, I don't know if that's necessary to understand the world with curves. And this isn't just about climate and weather, pretty much everything is better understood if it's understood in terms of probability functions. And I generally like to see the world not for the collapsed reality dot, but for the function underneath. It's why winning at gambling always feels empty to me, I know that the underlying function has my losing even if happened to get lucky. So, in a way, gambling is always losing, even if you win.

I know I'm an armchair statistician, and that lots of people will be annoyed by the language in this video, but I hope you can forgive me!

If there is no expertise anymore, I'm not sure there's anything to base true agreement on. People who are chipping away at the idea of objective knowledge are chipping away at the foundation of their own society.

(18) What I've Been Thinking About

Race is uncomfortable for me to talk about, and I often have the impulse to, like, stay in my lane, to just amplify voices that are more credible than mine as a white man who knows nothing about racism except for the times when I discover my own bias.

But I have been encouraged by Black friends and Black Nerdfighters to talk more about this stuff because, like, I'm an American too. Watching the situation in Charlottesville unfold was a horror, and it's been terribly present in my mind ever since. America has a shameful history, but we also have a history of progress, and that continues now as we fight against a new wave of hate that has found new life.

I also want to be clear that having racist thoughts does not make you a Nazi. We all have bias, we all have fear, and sometimes we even have hate. It's what we do with those things that matters. Do we give in to irrational bias...or do we work hard to keep the hate from creeping in.

Here are some other great and important things I've read this week:

(11) Life is not a Job Training Program

There were so many very good questions I didn't answer in this video, both specific and broad. What many of them come down to is, "Is college worth the money" or "I feel like I'm being eaten alive by my student loans and I don't know if it was worth it."

The short answers is that, on average, college is very worth it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t_N7MAr98CI

The long answer is that, as college gets more expensive, it becomes /less likely/ to be worth it every year. Which is why college needs to stop getting more expensive. And the only way that happens is if everyone gets a lot more price selective when picking schools.

(28) Why You Haven't Started a Business

Watching this video, I can see someone getting the impression that I think you /should/ start a business. That's not true, I think you should be able to if you want to, but there are lots of good reasons to not want to, and very much support people who are more interested in working for other people, especially if you work for me! PLEASE DON'T LEAVE ME!

But small business is extremely important, it helps even out inequality, ties communities together, and employs over half of working Americans. Small businesses hire faster than large ones, and employ more people per dollar they make.

Alas, there are lots of structural efficiencies to being big, and lots of ways big companies build their "moats." And just by virtue of the way capitalism works, it is sometimes easier to go from 400 to 800 employees than from 1 to 2.

Here's a selection of the articles I read and resources I used while making this video:

(21) On Condom Failure

I have always thought that sex ed and statistics should be the same course. There's no better way to show how vital stats is to your every day life than to look at statistics. Probabilities are so easy to misunderstand, and there are a lot that go into understanding the outcomes of sexual activity.

There's a ton I didn't get into here...like that a common trap is that, in a pinch, one might have unprotected sex with no negative outcome, and that makes it /feel/ much safer for future times. Which, I think, is a common trap people fall into.

There's also the fact that a 2% chance sounds pretty tiny, but it really does mean that, on average, if you have 50 couples using condoms perfectly, one of them is going to get pregnant in any given year. That's gonna seem weird and surprising and improbable and unfair to that couple, but statistically, it's exactly what we expected. Probabilities eventually collapse into reality, and then that couple no longer has a 2% chance of probability, they have a 100% chance, because they're pregnant, and everyone else has a 0% chance.

Being one of the two percent isn't that weird.

Here's the video I made on probability in 2010 that I'm actually pretty proud of: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YpvE0Co66nU

(14) YouTube History - Vlogbrothers Through the Ages

So we just hit 3,000,000 subscribers, and we just uploaded our 1,500th video. That's pretty nuts. John and I have made 1500 videos for this channel?! That seems like a kinda impossible number. But when I go look, they're all there, and I'm actually pretty proud of most of them.

Thank you to all of the people who have watched our stuff or subscribed over the years, it's a tremendous honor. It's amazing to spend some time thinking about how much YouTube has changed over the years. I need to spend some time remembering how huge 10,000 subscribers was for us in 2007, and how much I have always cared about the creative community this place fosters.

(07) My Earthquake Story - (And Thoughts About Numbers)

In this video, I think I intentionally avoided talking about the numbers that have become more and more common in our lives...our followers, our likes, our subscribers, our views. Those are such seductive surrogates for meaning. I know I say this as someone who has a lot of all of those things, but the numbers by themselves are nothing. If this community wasn't a bunch of thoughtful, supportive, kind people, I would leave the internet tomorrow and never come back. John and I stopped wanting to grow vlogbrothers a long time ago, we love this place for what it is, and I'm sorry if and when the other things I do end up spilling over too much on this channel, which I really do want to always be just about two brothers making stuff together.

(30) Eyes Made of Crystal - Trilobites are Bizarre

Go see if Eons is for you: http://www.youtube.com/eons

Other cool things about Trilobites
People have been collecting them for at least tens of thousands of years, as they've been found in Native American burial mounds. One tribe has a name for them that means "Little water bug in a stone house."

There's a genus of trilobite found first in China named "Han" after the Chinese dynasty. There's one species in that genus that only has one single current fossil found, scientists named it "Han Solo." That sounds like a dad joke, and it probably is, but it's also true.

The extinction even that wiped out the last trilos (which we talk about on Eons) wiped out 90% of the species on Earth.

(16) When Will You Die

Patreon Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dOCTt-O9TR8
DHJ Animation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hPxXZu_N0g4
VidCon: http://www.vidcon.com

So, to be clear, I've done a thing here that you shouldn't do, which is apply population statistics to individuals. But i did it for a good reason...uh...fun?

Of course there are many things that are likely to affect your age of death as much as or more than your current age (income, location, race, medical history, etc.) But also you gotta understand (and statisticians will hate this video for this reason and probably others) that the an average of life expectancy doesn't tell you much at all about when an individual will die. For example, an change in child mortality changes life expectancy far more than a change in elderly mortality because the addition or removal of small numbers to an average will affect it dramatically.

This is why you'll often hear that the life expectancy in some period of time was 35 years old. That makes it sound like people were all dying around 35, but in fact ages were distributed all over, but there were far more deaths of children and babies, which pulled the average way down. 80 year olds in the middle ages weren't, like, some kind of mythical creature. "Life expectancy" just isn't a super useful statistic for telling you what length of life to expect.

Also, it's not even /that/ good at telling you things about public health. People are supposed to die, so a better measure (which Australia actually uses) is "Years of Potential Life Lost" or YPLL

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Years_of_potential_life_lost

The US has a surprisingly bad YPLL because of suicides, drug overdoses, homicide, and car accidents.

That allows you to study whether diseases kill lots of people who are at the end of their lives or people who might otherwise live a quite a long time. Like, dementia kills mostly very old people while suicide and accidents kill lots of young people. We shouldn't give those deaths the same weight.

And then lastly, if you want to go all the way down this rabbit hole, you should google "Global Burden of Disease" which endeavors to measure beyond years of life lost and into the quality of those years. Like, disease can cause life-long chronic pain or disability, and those things should be considered as well as death.

OK, I am surprised by how much I just typed about this!

(09) Some Unhealthy Productivity Tips (and some Healthy ones)

We all want to get stuff done, we want to have a positive effect on the world. But there's definitely a part of me that thinks making things happen is more important than keeping myself healthy and happy. And I actually think that's OK, to a point. I don't think my happiness should be my primary goal, but I also think it should be on the list.

Thanks for being with me as I've learned so many things about myself, and I'm really glad I can continue being honest about my life and my brain.

(02) The Paris Accord - What is it And What Does it All Mean

At the heart of the desire to get America out of the Paris Agreement seems to be three things:

1. Nostalgia. The focus on coal, an energy source that is becoming uneconomical even in developing countries, and that employs very few people in America can't have anything to do with anything except an imagined fondness for a world that probably never existed. These people are right that fossil fuels have been great for Americans and also for the world. I think the people who worked and fought to use fossil fuels to make people's lives better did good things. I also think we need new paths and to retire old ones.

2. A push to have countries care only about their own interests. Climate change is the best example that this doesn't work. And that's very scary for people who are skeptical of globalism. It may seem to them awfully convenient that the people who want a more global society happened to find this disaster that can only be solved by a more global society.

Of course there are some that are purely economically motivated, but while those people are powerful, there aren't many of them. But these are the things that really resonate with large numbers of people. And when you're trying to defend your worldview, you'll make some magnificent mental leaps to do it...like that every scientist ever is lying about how CO2 absorption works.

There are a couple Twitter threads that I really enjoyed on these topics. here they are.

I'm just a little sick of people feeling like they've failed or like they don't matter because they aren't hitting every single target society puts in front of them. No one does that. And a lot of those goals are dumb anyway.

I know that society thrives on driven people, and I hope you are driven to achieve, and that a lot of that drive comes from not necessarily healthy desires. But I think we can make the world a better place without putting all of this fucked up pressure on ourselves.

Also, this video is basically the same as this one Evelyn made, but Evelyn's is way more funny and articulate: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=575LByUKT00

When you think about it, it is very weird that most people get the choice of whether or not to create another another human being, but I'm very happy we live in a world where we do (mostly) get to make that choice. And, frankly, I'm not super good at decisions. Katherine and I can't decide where to go for dinner most nights, let alone whether we want to un-alterably change our lives forever.

But now that I've been a parent for BASICALLY NO TIME AT ALL but while I'm still a little bit capable of remembering what my life was like before I was a dad...I just wanted to share some thoughts.

(10) Seeing Myself Through a Cat's Eyes

Kedi is Here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PpG0z-npFIY

If you live somewhere where YTRed isn't available, there will probably be a one-time purchase option.

I'm really excited about trying this out. I love documentary film so much, it's right in our wheelhouse. In it's best form, it is entirely about finding ways to understand the world more complexly. And this is such a great movie to start with. In a difficult and complicated moment in our history, we have to take time to be calm and appreciate our world for a moment. I hope you get a chance to do that with this movie.

- Hank

(09) Your Neighborhood, Your Life Expectancy

In which John discusses the astonishing degree to which an American's zip code affects their life expectancy, and why life expectancy varies so much within the United States. Also discussed: Regional variation in life expectancy in Canada and other rich nations, how much smoking reduces your life expectancy, the relationship between exercise and longevity, and more. SOURCES/INFO:

Inequalities in Life Expectancy among U.S. Counties, the study that was just published showing that life expectancy varies by 20 years within the U.S. depending on your location. (It's fascinating! Really!) http://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamainternalmedicine/fullarticle/2626194

An NPR summary: https://www.mprnews.org/story/2017/05/08/npr-life-expectancy-can-vary-by-20-years-depending-on-where-you-live

Life expectancy in my hometown of Indianapolis, Indiana varies by more than 14 years depending on your ZIP code: http://www.savi.org/savi/documents/Worlds_Apart_Gaps_in_Life_Expectancy.pdf

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation's cool app that tells you, based on your ZIP code, your life expectancy: http://www.rwjf.org/en/library/interactives/whereyouliveaffectshowlongyoulive.html

Life expectancy for smokers is 10 years shorter than for nonsmokers: https://www.cdc.gov/tobacco/data_statistics/fact_sheets/health_effects/tobacco_related_mortality/

Physical activity can expand average U.S. lifespans by 4.5 years: https://www.cancer.gov/news-events/press-releases/2012/PhysicalActivityLifeExpectancy

Life expectancy in Canada varies by income quintile, but by less than it does in the U.S. http://www.healthycanadians.gc.ca/publications/department-ministere/state-public-health-status-2016-etat-sante-publique-statut/page-4-eng.php

This study https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK62591/ explores life expectancy variation within countries over time, finding that in most rich nations (Canada, Germany, Australia, etc.) life expectancy variation has declined since 1980, while it has steadily increased in the U.S. This is also where you can see that life expectancy among people with the highest incomes in the U.S. is (very slightly) higher than life expectancy among high income Canadians.

Lastly, LET'S TALK ABOUT LIFE EXPECTANCY. Dr. Aaron Carroll of Healthcare Triage explains it here better than I can: http://theincidentaleconomist.com/wordpress/how-flawed-is-life-expectancy/ But basically, there are a number of factors that go into life expectancy that can cause variations--especially when it comes to miscarriages/newborn deaths--but most of those variations are between countries, not within them. (i.e., it is not the reason for the huge geographic discrepancy in the U.S.) In the field of healthcare outcome analysis, there are other complains about life expectancy--it can be affected by things that have little to do with healthcare (like violence and accident rates)--but that's not of concern here. In summary, the longevity disparity between rich and poor in the U.S. is real, and it is very high by international standards.

(05) Sick and Tired

http://5calls.org - It's real easy, it's not about winning an argument, or getting upset or angry, it's about letting your voice be heard.

I hope I was fairly coherent in this video. I'm just getting over a cold and I still feel crappy and like my mind is working at about 50% normal speed. I ended up editing this video non-linearly...meaning I didn't originally say all of these things in this order.

So it's possible I messed up some of my original points...I'm sick and tired OK!

But hopefully the point comes across...it's bullcrap to believe that money can take on the role that actual human contact and human appreciation. More and more, we are moving labor behind the scenes, where no one can see it and where it is very efficient and unobserved. Like, I used to talk to at least one person if I had to buy a USB cable, now I click buttons on Amazon and people who I will never see (or even think about) work to get my USB cable to me as invisibly as possible.

This might (/might/) be economically a good idea, but it is not good for human satisfaction and happiness, and that worries me. A lot, actually.

(28) Can You Trust Mainstream Media

When people ask me how they can trust anything anymore it just makes me so sad. Yes, publications have a perspective, acting without bias in our world is impossible. And I get frustrated when i see papers not trying to present themselves without bias the way they used to.

But the idea that the "Mainstream Media" is the more corrupt of the institutions spreading information these days is nuts. I have watched papers come after YouTube for what I see as a mostly manufactured story. But these larger institutions have far more protections against reporting false stories, and a far greater responsibility to the truth than today's "non-mainstream" options.

These other options tend to be driven entirely by ideology or profit with basically no responsibility to the truth. But they've succeeded handily in breaking down the credibility of the press, which is in turn breaking down the credibility of truth in general.

So, if I didn't answer it for you in the video, let me answer the question in the title now. If you are looking at news, actual news and not an op-ed, you can trust the information reported in mainstream media FAR MORE than almost anything else. It may have a perspective, but the information itself will be trustworthy.

And I am happy to take a stand for an institution that I honestly think we would be screwed without (even if a couple bits of it have taken unnecessary swipes at YouTube in the past few weeks).

(21) The Adpocalypse - What it Means

Am I concerned? Absolutely. Watching revenue tank in early April was terrifying, but it also got us thinking about lots of other ways to support this content which I am excited about.

YouTube has created a smoother (still rocky) path for independent creators to start making revenue, but the automatically sold advertisements have always been a the kind of prices that only very large channels can make significant revenue (we are lucky enough to run some of those.)

We need more systems and better systems to help independent creators make good stuff on the internet, and spending actual money (rather than spending time and attention watching ads) is vital to that. So, thank you to everyone who has ever bought merchandise or supported one of our projects on Patreon. Of course, we know that not all people can afford to do that, but the fact that some can make it so we can make these things for everyone.

Here is a great video about how YouTube's ad selling mechanisms work from CGP Grey: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KW0eUrUiyxo&t=4s

And if you want to learn more about the Internet Creators Guild: http://www.internetcreatorsguild.com

In which John Green discusses the creation of things, including but not limited to the world's largest ball of paint. Ultimately, I think art and writing and most human endeavors are best imagined as huge, sprawling collaborations, and not as endeavors that rely upon the efforts of a few individual geniuses. Creativity belongs to everyone!

Footage from the world's largest ball of paint is from this episode of Artland: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N4AGnBWgj18&t=924s

So, in the voting, there were several videos that got more votes than this. But I picked this video for two reasons:

1. It was the one that still felt like something I might have made (even though it was better than what I would have done.) I felt like it captured the spirit of the video I intended to make.

2. Of anyone, I think this video had the highest votes to views ratio, at over 50%. So half of the people who saw the video voted for it, which is pretty dang impressive.

3. I really liked it a whole lot! There were, of course, lots of other moments in lots of other videos that were fantastic and hilarious, but I felt like this one had the highest concentration, as well as a really good story structure with multiple little arcs that all worked really well.

(28) Why Can't America Have a Grown-Up Healthcare Conversation

In which John discusses the tradeoffs involved in health care reform, and why the 70% of Americans who are happy with their personal health care make it difficult to achieve more than incremental changes in the very expensive, very inefficient health care system in the United States. SOURCES:

First off, subscribe to Healthcare Triage, where this stuff is discussed with far more detail and nuance: https://www.youtube.com/user/thehealthcaretriage

Only 32% of Americans think our healthcare system is good or excellent, but 69% are happy with their personal health care: http://www.gallup.com/poll/165998/americans-views-healthcare-quality-cost-coverage.aspx

Over at the incidental economist, Aaron Carroll and Austin Frakt have written a LOT about the quality of U.S. healthcare outcomes compared to other countries. Intros here: http://theincidentaleconomist.com/wordpress/the-state-of-us-health-aint-so-good/ and here: http://theincidentaleconomist.com/wordpress/how-do-we-rate-the-quality-of-the-us-health-care-system-introduction/

The Kaiser Foundation has up-to-date stats on where people get their health insurance--the ACA exchanges get coverage to about 6% of people, 49% of people get coverage through their employers (or their family's employer), 20% through Medicaid, 14% through Medicare, and 9% are uninfured: http://kff.org/other/state-indicator/total-population/?currentTimeframe=0&sortModel=%7B%22colId%22:%22Location%22,%22sort%22:%22asc%22%7D

Healthcare costs in the U.S. are very, very high compared to every other wealthy country, and have been for decades: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Health_care_in_the_United_States#Overall_costs

A Medicare-for-All program would lead to lower overall healthcare costs in the U.S., but also a lot of job loss (possibly as many as two million): http://money.cnn.com/2016/01/25/news/economy/sanders-health-care-plan/

Even modest reductions in health insurance subsidies--like those proposed in the GOP repeal and replace of the Affordable Care Act--would lead to tens of millions of people losing insurance coverage: https://www.cbo.gov/publication/52371

Other topics discussed include the Republican plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, the relative modesty of Obamacare as a health care reform, and the benefits and tradeoffs of Bernie Sanders' proposed single payer healthcare system, Medicare for All.

(24) I Disagree with Me (Thoughts from Lake Powell)

In which Hank kayaks around a lake that was bought with the destruction of fragile and irreplaceable ecosystems and also men's lives. Also, like, a lot of money.

And he likes it.

Lake Powell is the reservoir created by Glen Canyon Dam. A reservoir is a lake formed by a dam and right there in the name you can see it's main purpose...to reserve. It was part of the Colorado River Storage Project, the goal of which was to store water from the flood times to be used during the dry times. And it's worked, it has allowed a lot of people to live and far in arid parts of the South West US.

It's also a very pretty and very cool lake that a lot of people enjoy recreationally. But the fights against dams on the Colorado river were a huge part of the early environmental movement in the 1960s, and the reaction against technology that that movement created set up a dichotomy that I don't love.

I am a big fan of the environment, but I often think that a bias toward "naturalness" (whatever that means) can cause a lot of pretty big problems, like a fear of vaccines or genetically modified foods.

There are lessons to learn from these projects, of course. Glen Canyon Dam's construction left it vulnerable to floods, which almost caused a massive disaster in the 1980s. And so there is much to be said for caution.

Basically, it's complicated...and I like having a chance to look at a complicated issue and admit that I'm a little bit on both sides.

Here's a documentary about people who want to remove the dam:

In which John discusses the dumbing of his phone and his new information diet, all designed to protect him from the self he becomes when twittering.

I'm not sure if the social media anxiety/malaise I feel is something others will be able to relate to, or if it's specific to my life, but I am trying to sort through whether the architecture of the social internet makes it an inherently unfun/unhealthy place for me to hang out, or whether this is just a phase, like that time in ninth grade when I wore a trench coat for six months even though I lived in Florida and it was hot all the time. But for now, I've decided to experiment with a low-information diet.

(17) Trump's Budget Explained

I don't really know what this budget is meant to do aside from raise military spending dramatically while keeping spending almost exactly the same as it is now. It's remarkable how close they kept the actually dollar amount spent. The Bloomberg article below has the best look at some of the individual programs that are being cut.

When looking through sources you might see that different organizations have different numbers for how much has been cut. Different organizations have counted differently. Some don't include the mandatory spending in the number (mandatory spending can increase, but there's no way to stop it from increasing.)

I'm bummed about a lot of this budget. A ton of NASA's Earth Science (which is both efficient and valuable) is being scrapped. So many programs that help people who need it, especially the after-school and educational assistance programs. It will be interesting to see how the fight goes in congress.

A selection of sources I used:

(10) Do I Have ADHD

Just something I've been thinking about for a while.

How to Know if you have ADHD
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cx13a2-unjE

SciShow Psych
http://www.youtube.com/scishowpsych

I am very lucky to have found myself (and gotten myself) in a situation that is well suited to the quirks of my personality. But I still find myself sometimes unintentionally hurting people, annoying people, or letting people down even though I often know the exact mistake I am making.

I'm not saying that means I have ADHD, I just want to continue to understand the mistakes I make, that I am prone to making them, and develop habits to stop myself. This channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC-nPM1_kSZf91ZGkcgy_95Q is full of tips I find useful, and there are a number of habits I've developed on my own.

Finally, here's a thing I didn't say in the video. I've struggled with worrying that if I get diagnosed, I will blame the disorder instead of myself and let that excuse my behavior. I know that's dumb, because if I'm being impaired by something, I should know and take the steps to reduce that impairment. But part of me always wants to believe that I'm strong and smart enough to handle any curve ball I get thrown without letting myself or other people down.

I think that might be a pretty destructive way to look at it, which is why I'm glad I've allowed myself to get support from friends, family, and professionals over the years.

(07) Hoping for an Airport Reunion - One Refugee Family's Story

In which John goes to the airport--not, for once, to fly somewhere, but in hopes of seeing a family of Burmese refugees reunited. Thanks to Saw Kyar Aye and Thet Thet for sharing their story with me and for inviting me to the airport on that fateful day. SOURCES BELOW!



Sponsor our 10k run here: https://www.gofundme.com/100Days10K All proceeds go to Exodus Refugee International, a local nonprofit working with refugees resettled in Indianapolis: https://exodusrefugee.org/

Sources:

Forced labor remains a huge problem in Burma, also known as Myanmar, and those conscripted by the army into labor are often beaten and sometimes executed for desertion (or just for being injured): http://content.time.com/time/world/article/0,8599,2082814,00.html

Refugee resettlement does not increase crime rates in the United States. This study explored the relationship between crime in communities and refugee populations, finding an association (but not causation!!!!) between refugee resettlement and lower crime rates: http://www.renewoureconomy.org/research/is-there-a-link-between-refugees-and-u-s-crime-rates/

In general, immigrant populations commit crimes at a lower rate than native born populations in the United States: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Immigration_and_crime#United_States and also https://www.wsj.com/articles/the-mythical-connection-between-immigrants-and-crime-1436916798

Then there is the question of whether immigration reduces wages. This is VERY HOTLY CONTESTED, so I'm going to try to be careful here. The best/most readable overview I've found is here: http://www.economist.com/news/finance-and-economics/21688938-europes-new-arrivals-will-probably-dent-public-finances-not-wages-good-or but it focuses on the effect of refugee populations on European economies. Because refugees entering the United States are more thoroughly vetted and also more likely to be highly educated, in the U.S. refugees are less likely to decrease wages--i.e., they almost certainly don't. More info here: https://www.nytimes.com/2016/09/22/us/immigrants-arent-taking-americans-jobs-new-study-finds.html

Then there's the question of whether a large influx of immigrants affect wages or unemployment. That's not super relevant to the U.S. right now, because we have relatively few refugee resettlements here, but it's an interesting side note. The WSJ has a good overview of the cloudiness here: http://blogs.wsj.com/economics/2015/06/01/does-immigration-suppress-wages-its-not-so-simple/ The Brookings Institute claims that "on average, immigrant workers increase the opportunities and incomes of Americans." https://www.brookings.edu/blog/jobs/2012/05/04/what-immigration-means-for-u-s-employment-and-wages/ Other studies have found that large influxes of immigrants do depress wages for some low-skilled workers: https://www.hks.harvard.edu/fs/gborjas/publications/popular/NR2016.pdf And then of course there are studies that show the problem with the studies that show the problem with the other studies. It's complicated. Some day I'd like to make a video about the incredibly complex relationship between immigration and wages/unemployment/economic growth, but not today.

For those looking to learn more about the current political situation in Myanmar, here's a more recent, deeply disturbing story about forced labor of the persecuted Rohingya minority in Myanmar: http://www.reuters.com/article/us-myanmar-rohingya-forcedlabour-idUSKCN0PC2L720150702 To be clear, the family I discuss in this video is not Rohingya; most Rohingya are Muslims. Saw Kyar Aye and his family are Christians of Chin ethnicity. But Chin people have frequently been targets of forced labor initiatives.

Huge thank you to Sara Hindi and everyone at Exodus Refugee International for making this video possible. Thanks also to Mark Olsen for his videography and editing genius. Any mistakes are mine alone.

(24) Doing Bad Things To Make Good Things Happen

Tickets for NerdCon Nerdfighteria will be available at the door if you want to come by! $60! This weekend! http://www.nerdconnerdfighteria.com

I realize that I have had huge advantages that make it easier for me to live this way. Like, I'm neither trying to stop a terrorist or trying to survive despite oppression.

But I have seen many people do things they don't believe in to accomplish some career goal, to grow their business, or to make a bunch of money. They convince themselves of the good things that will allow them to do, but in the end they often seem quite sad.

I know this will not be the case for all people, and it is likely more the case for me because I'm a rich white guy, but I have found that being kind and thoughtful and empathetic is a fantastic way to create successful art as well as successful business. And I'm tired of seeing small business owners trying to learn their lessons from Fortune 500 CEOs like Steve Jobs.

Don't be Steve Jobs, he was amazing, but he was a dick. Be a human and treat humans like humans, because that's where the real work gets done.

(14) Human Life Is Getting Better. Faster Than Ever Before.

Read and be inspired by the 2017 Gates Letter: https://www.gatesnotes.com/2017-Annual-Letter
In which John discusses the annual letter from Melinda and Bill Gates, and how it shows that the world is getting dramatically better. Since I was your (average) age, global poverty has dropped from 30% to under 10%. Child mortality has been cut nearly in half. And by the time the average vlogbrothers viewer is my age, absolute poverty and child mortality should both be extremely rare everywhere on Earth.

There is a lot of bad news. It is real. It is important. But it's also important to take a step back and look at the human story over time, and each year the Gates letter offers us that opportunity.

SOURCES:

Our World in Data is an amazing resource for understanding changes over time in the human condition, from literacy rates to life expectancy. Their overview of the child mortality situation is excellent: https://ourworldindata.org/child-mortality/ as is their introduction to absolute poverty rates: https://ourworldindata.org/extreme-poverty/

The In a Nutshell video I reference (which was made with Our World in Data, incidentally) can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QsBT5EQt348

The 2014 Gates letter pretty well destroyed the argument that foreign aid doesn't work: http://www.gatesfoundation.org/Who-We-Are/Resources-and-Media/Annual-Letters-List/Annual-Letter-2014 (It's true that much of the foreign aid during the Cold War was often minimally effective at reducing poverty and improving health, but it wasn't really DESIGNED to do either; it was designed to sway governments toward capitalism or communism. Foreign aid since 1990 has been been better targeted, especially when it comes to health care. There is a longer and more academic overview of the research here: https://www.oecd.org/dev/34353462.pdf

Less than 1% of the U.S. federal government's budget goes to foreign aid: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/worldviews/wp/2016/09/26/the-u-s-foreign-aid-budget-visualized/?utm_term=.48e0f09380d8 (...unless you count defense aid, then it is like 1.2%)

Any other questions, feel free to ask in comments!

(03) Are We Making Things Worse

POSTERS HERE: https://store.dftba.com/collections/refugee-art-posters

You can choose how much you want to donate, but the minimum per poster is around $10.

Also, there' a $150 package that includes ALL of the art!
https://store.dftba.com/products/all-17-refugee-art-poster

So, look, I never want to complain about the situation I am in, because it is so so wonderful. But having a platform means that I never really know how much I should be using it to affect change, or what the most effective strategies for that would be. If I did a third of the things I had ideas for, it would be too much, and yet I am always left feeling like I'm not doing enough.

And, let's be honest, I don't know the best path forward...I'm a video blogger. But I do want to act for the things that I believe in.

And I also want to do my best to do that without attacking the people who disagree with me. I know that's a little controversial in these days of Nazi punching, but it's way too easy to imagine that every person who likes Donald Trump is the same as Milo and Richard Spencer and they're just not.

Some of them are terrible, absolutely, but 50% of Americans still approve of the job he's doing and I'm not ready to write off those people. And I think treating them like a monolithic block of racist scumbags does a lot more harm than good.

(20) Behind the Scenes of My Life

On the evening of the election here in the US, I tweeted my most re-tweeted tweet ever: "I know many many wonderful people who are dedicated to making the world a better place and that's a thing that will not change tonight."

I know that lots of people are hopeful and pleased that we have a new president today. I am not. I am very worried. Many of the things I care about most, our new president is actively antagonistic toward.

But that tweet is true no matter who controls the @POTUS Twitter account.

I am not just hopeful, I am excited about the future. And much of that has to do with these great people who I am lucky enough to work with. I know that I'm their boss, and they know that too, but I hope they also know that our goal isn't to create money, it's to create value. It's to make things that people love, and that they care about, and that maybe even help them become better people.

If you're feeling particularly drained by the political climate where you live, I suggest looking to the people you know in the real world rather than the ones you imagine are taking over your country. My guess is that there's a lot of hope there.

(17) How Young Is History

In which John Green considers the historical distance between Rome's Pantheon, the cave paintings at Lascaux, a different community's cave paintings at Chauvet, and the current day. Too often, we think that a hundred years, or a thousand, can tell us the whole story or history or art history. But cave paintings remind us that what we think of as history is a tiny fraction of the human story.

HUGE THANKS to Rosianna for helping with all the images: http://youtube.com/rosianna

Werner Herzog made a beautiful documentary about the Chauvet paintings called Cave of Forgotten Dreams. It's worth checking out for much more info on the paintings at Chauvet and the people who made them: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1664894/

(10) What Is the Real Unemployment Rate

In which John Green discusses the "real" unemployment rate in the United States, and how different ways of calculating jobless rates have led to vastly different conclusions about the health of the U.S. economy. SOURCES BELOW!

Other questions addressed include: What is the difference between the U1 unemployment rate and the U6 unemployment rate? Which one is the better measure of unemployment? What percentage of Americans are employed? And what percentage of those unemployed are looking for work? And what does it all say about the present and future of the U.S. economy, and our divisive political discourse? Thank you to Rosianna for all the charts and graphs! http://youtube.com/rosianna

The information in this video came from:

1. Trading Economics has great and visually intuitive explanations of the U-3 unemployment rate over time in the United States: http://www.tradingeconomics.com/united-states/unemployment-rate

2. BLS stats about labor force participation rates and how many people out of the labor force say they "do not want a job now" https://www.bls.gov/web/empsit/cpseea38.htm

3. Information about the civilian labor force participation rate can be found here: https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/CIVPART and the labor force participation rate for those between 25 and 54 can be found here: https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/LNU01300060

4. This is a highly detailed article that I found helpful looking at causes of the decline in labor force participation: https://econsnapshot.com/2016/02/11/understanding-the-decline-in-us-labor-force-participation/ An easier to read overview at the Washington Post: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/wonk/wp/2013/09/06/the-incredible-shrinking-labor-force-again/?utm_term=.0a056f64b354

5. Real median household income in the United States is, after adjusting for inflation, rising but not yet to pre-recession levels: https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/MEHOINUSA672N

6. This article explores how we try to have internationally comparable unemployment rates: https://stats.bls.gov/opub/mlr/2000/06/art1full.pdf

7. This web site has an easy-to-use interface that allows you to look at the U-3, U-5, and U-6 unemployment figures over time: http://www.macrotrends.net/1377/u6-unemployment-rate

8. This has up-to-date figures all unemployment measures (including U-1 and U-2, which aren't discussed in this video): http://www.cnbc.com/2016/08/05/charts-whats-the-real-unemployment-rate.html

I think that's it. If you have any specific questions, let me know and I'll try to add sources here.

(30) The Most Interesting Thing I've Ever Done

Join us in celebrating 10 years of Nerdfighteria in Boston: http://www.nerdconnerdfighteria.com

I went over-time on this video, but I still don't know that I was able to do this topic any sort of justice. First, I have to say that I said "I" a lot in the first paragraph because I was focusing on my own life but, of course, I had a lot of help doing those things I did (most of all from John.)

Second...we've had ups and downs in the strength of this community, and it's also a certain amount of scary for me when it seems like the focus of it is not as much values and goals, but me or John as people. There's a weird line between being the doorway into something bigger and more interesting and getting...stuck in the doorway.

I want you to like me, but I don't want you to be here for me. I want you to be here for whatever message I'm sharing that day, whether it's one of joy and silliness, or of compassion, or of knowledge.

But I also think I can sometimes be distracted from the importance of what we're doing here on Vlogbrothers by all of the new things that this community has allowed us to do. And since Vlogbrothers is still just me and John, while our other things have whole teams, it's easy to get dragged into those things by the great ideas those teams are having.

Which is a bummer, because I don't want to be distracted from our work trying to figure out how cohesive and constructive community can find new ways to exist as the old ways are working for fewer and fewer people.

Thank you for an amazing 10 years...good god, how lucky am I...

(23) 41 Dad Jokes in 4 Minutes! (with special guest star...)

Thank you to all of the dads who have made so many wonderful dad jokes over the years, many of which I stole for this video. There is a partial list of sources below!

Thanks everyone for your kind wishes during paternity leave. It's been intense and wonderful. I am glad I had a joyful way to return to this channel even though there's a lot to be concerned about in the world and my country right now. I really love making these videos, and I am very lucky to have this thing in my life.

If you're able and interested, John and I will be having many fun times at NerdCon: Nerdfighteria in Boston, February 25th and 26th. http://www.nerdconnerdfighteria.com

Hello people who went below the fold. I'm uploading this on a quiet Thursday evening and I want to say two things:

1. My leave has been a really reflective time and one of the main takeaways from that reflection is how grateful I am for the support of this community and that we get to do cool and good things together.

2. The conference business is weird and difficult. I'm still dealing with some of the financial fallout from NerdCon: Stories. But it's so so worth it when I hear from people who say that VidCon or NerdCon is one of the best or the best times they have all year. I think it's so fantastically important that we gather together in the real world when we can and love things together. I'm so proud to help facilitate that for so many people.

(07) It's Pizzamas!!! (Thoughts From the Place Where they Print Our Shirts)

For the last few years, John and I have done our best to get back in touch with our Nerdfighter roots by spending two weeks making a video every weekday. Unfortunately, this year this somehow fell into my paternity leave, so I'm not going to be doing that.

But I did want to pre-make one video, and this is that video. Other guests will be filling in on my other Pizzamas days so there /will/ be 10 total Pizzamas videos.

This video was filmed at Zoo City Apparel, the place here in Missoula where they print our shirts (also Rhett and Link's shirts, and VidCon's shirts, and a bunch of others.) I always like spending time there, seeing the hard work and attention to detail that they put into printing for us. They're very cool people.
Pizzamas Things: https://store.dftba.com/collections/pizzamas

This Pizzamas we've also got a cool thing I didn't talk about this in this video because I wasn't sure it was going to be a thing. One of our shirts, Duncan's "Hot and Fresh" is only available in a $39 "Pizzamas Pizza Box." It will be delievered to your doorstep in the pizza box and has a pizza cutter, a notepad, and an apron in it as well.

There's a bunch of other stuff at DFTBA.com/pizzamas as well like pajama bottoms, pet leashes, and stickers.

YAY PIZZAMAS!!

Thank you so much to all of the designers who helped out with Pizzamas this year. They are:

(25) Will the U.S. Presidential Election Be Rigged

In which John discusses the rigging of U.S. Presidential elections, a bit of recent electoral history, the electoral college, and considers the fundamental soundness of the political institutions of the United States. SOURCES:

The 2004 U.S. Presidential election between George W. Bush and John Kerry was not stolen by Bush in Ohio. Here is Farhad Manjoo's complete analysis of the vote rigging claims: http://www.salon.com/2006/06/03/kennedy_39/

More about how the U.S. House of Representatives has occasionally selected the President: http://history.house.gov/Institution/Origins-Development/Electoral-College/

George Soros does not have (and has never had) any investment in the voting machine company Smartmatic, and also Smartmatic machines will not be used in the 2016 election: http://www.smartmatic.com/case-studies/article/facts-about-smartmatic/

The study purporting to show that a high percentage of non-citizen U.S. residents vote has been thoroughly debunked by peer-reviewed research: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/monkey-cage/wp/2016/10/19/trump-thinks-non-citizens-are-deciding-elections-we-debunked-the-research-hes-citing/?tid=a_inl

Election law expert Chris Ashby explains the many reasons why the U.S. Presidential vote will not be rigged, why voting machines cannot be secretly adjusted, and why the highly decentralized U.S. election system makes widespread fraud extremely unlikely: https://extranewsfeed.com/the-election-is-not-rigged-23917d9b0534#.e08aw2hr2

Republican and Democrat elected officials agree that our system of elections is "more secure than it’s ever been in our nation’s history." http://time.com/4535364/donald-trump-rigged-election-fact-check/

A comprehensive investigation of voter impersonation in American elections found 31 incidents out of a billion votes cast: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/wonk/wp/2014/08/06/a-comprehensive-investigation-of-voter-impersonation-finds-31-credible-incidents-out-of-one-billion-ballots-cast/

Absentee voter fraud is somewhat more common than in-person voter fraud, but still very rare: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2014/10/13/the-disconnect-between-voter-id-laws-and-voter-fraud/

Voting law experts agree that official election fraud is becoming " increasingly rare" in the United States, NOT more common. http://www.bbc.com/news/election-us-2016-37682947

(21) Coming Out, Goats, Government, and Attack Ads with Denise Juneau

Montana has had a very strange thing happen this election. A gay, American Indian, Democratic woman was nominated to run against the incumbent (former Navy Seal, Ryan Zinke). Stranger still, several times she has polled within the margin of error.

Full Interview Here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FeMerAkiO3I&feature=youtu.be

To be clear, it was always (and remains) unlikely that Superintendent Juneau will win, but government is defined by more than just the winners of elections. Who we consider, how close races are, and the conversations that they bring to the table.

I wanted a chance to just talk with Superintendent Juneau...with anyone really...who has a knowledge of government and also faith in government. I don't think that any politician is free of blame when it comes to hyper-partisanship, but I don't think we can move away from it without humanizing politicians and asking them to humanize each other.

You can find out more about Denise Juneau here:
https://denisejuneau.com/
https://www.facebook.com/denisejuneau/

Thanks to Nick Jenkins, Nicole Sweeney, and Caitlin Hoffmeister for getting up way too early in the morning to help with this. And, of course, to Superintendent Juneau who took time out of her ridiculously busy schedule to talk to me.

(18) Understanding Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton's Health Care Reform Proposals

In which John Green compares the healthcare plans of U.S. Presidential candidates Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. For more information about health and health care policy, check out Health Care Triage: https://www.youtube.com/user/thehealthcaretriage SOURCES & FURTHER READING:
Rand's analysis of the reform proposals of Clinton and Trump are nicely summarized here: http://www.rand.org/blog/2016/09/estimating-the-impacts-of-the-trump-and-clinton-health.html

Full analysis of Hillary Clinton's plan (who is the Democratic party's nominee) can be found here: http://www.commonwealthfund.org/Publications/Issue-Briefs/2016/Sep/Clinton-Presidential-Health-Care-Proposal

And full analysis of Donald Trump's plan (who is the Republican party's nominee) can be found here: http://www.commonwealthfund.org/Publications/Issue-Briefs/2016/Sep/Trump-Presidential-Health-Care-Proposal

Understanding the Healthcare System of the United States: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yN-MkRcOJjY

Why Are American Health Care Costs So High? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qSjGouBmo0M

The Kaiser Family Foundation explains the high cost of health care in the United States compared to other rich nations: http://kff.org/health-costs/issue-brief/snapshots-health-care-spending-in-the-united-states-selected-oecd-countries/

And this series explores health care outcomes in the U.S. vs. other rich nations: http://www.healthsystemtracker.org/chart-collection/how-does-the-quality-of-the-u-s-healthcare-system-compare-to-other-countries/?slide=1

The Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) has resulted in a significant drop in the uninsured population in the U.S. http://www.cnbc.com/2016/05/17/obamacare-brings-record-low-for-us-health-uninsured-rate.html Fuller data and complete report here: http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/nhis/earlyrelease/insur201605.pdf

A single-payer health care system would not, in and of itself, magically bring costs in the U.S. down to 10% of GPD, as explained by Aaron Carroll here: http://theincidentaleconomist.com/wordpress/single-payer-is-not-sufficient/

Trump's plan to allow insurance companies to sell policies across state lines is extremely controversial among health policy experts: http://www.nytimes.com/2015/09/01/upshot/the-problem-with-gop-plans-to-sell-health-insurance-across-state-lines.html

The Wikipedia article on Health care in the United States is also excellent: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Health_care_in_the_United_States

And lastly, this comparison tool from the Commonwealth Fund is pretty cool. It allows you to see side-by-side what Clinton and Trump have proposed to deal with various problems with the health care system: http://www.commonwealthfund.org/interactives/2016/sep/comparing-candidates-health-proposals/

(14) Compassion, Weakness, and the 2016 Election

This year has hit me right in the faith in humanity. It's hard to even pick which thing about it has upset me the most. And when I was writing this video, I just kept putting down more and more and more words...it was very hard to stay on one track.

Anyway, I'm bummed out, but I just do my best to remember that the people I know in the real world are more than 90% super great, which means that's probably also roughly true of the general population.

So that's something!

This article that Joe Hanson sent me was helpful though (if a little thick): https://www.brainpickings.org/2016/03/16/rebecca-solnit-hope-in-the-dark-2/

Also, if you're wondering why I'm voting for Hillary Clinton, it's not just because I think Donald Trump believes the whole world is a game for him to win at any costs, and that his presidency would significantly increase the odds of apocalypse (though they would still be quite low). It's also because she's accomplished a great deal of good in her career, which I talked about a bit here: https://www.facebook.com/hankgreen/posts/10157157580065487

And, unlike a lot of people, I actually relate to her a lot, which i talk about here: http://edwardspoonhands.tumblr.com/post/151433613535/i-totally-get-wanting-to-support-hillary-in-this

Do I have problems with Hillary? Sure...but they're mostly with things that I don't know /anything/ about, like how to conduct the foreign and military affairs of the most powerful country in the world. I feel like we do that wrong in the U.S.. But I also freely admit that I have no idea what I'm talking about when it comes to that stuff, and I think it's pretty weird that so many people think they do.

Anyway. Humans are great. We've got our issues, but I'm quite proud of us...even in this pretty unpleasant year.

(11) Understanding Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton's Tax Plans

In which John Green compares the tax proposals of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, and looks at what the tax system and budget would look like for different families. There's also a brief introduction to federal income tax here in the United States, and some discussion of the candidates' budget proposals.

SOURCES:

The Tax Policy Center's excellent and detailed analysis of Democrat Hillary Clinton's tax plan: http://www.taxpolicycenter.org/publications/updated-analysis-hillary-clintons-tax-proposals
The Tax Policy Center's analysis of Republican Donald Trump's tax plan: http://www.taxpolicycenter.org/publications/analysis-donald-trumps-revised-tax-plan
Much of the information in this video came from the Tax Foundation's analysis of Clinton's tax proposals: http://taxfoundation.org/sites/default/files/docs/TaxFoundation-FF496.pdf
And of Trump's: http://taxfoundation.org/article/details-and-analysis-donald-trump-tax-reform-plan-september-2016
Lily Batchelder's paper explaining why Trump's tax plan would result in tax increases for 7.8 million households: http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=2842802
and a politifact story on the same topic: http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2016/sep/27/hillary-clinton/hillary-clinton-correctly-cites-outside-analyses-t/
Donald Trump's tax plan would boost the debt much more than Clinton's, and would put U.S. debt held by the public over 100% of GDP in the next decade according to the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget: http://crfb.org/papers/promises-and-price-tags-preliminary-update
The CRFB explains Trump's budget cut proposals here: http://crfb.org/blogs/explaining-donald-trumps-penny-plan-non-defense-spending And his plan for increased defense spending here: http://crfb.org/blogs/how-much-would-trumps-new-defense-plan-cost
Chart of our publicly held debt to GDP ratio came from here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_debt_of_the_United_States
The Tax Policy Center has an excellent chart explaining effective tax rates by income size that you'll enjoy if you're into this kind of stuff: http://www.taxpolicycenter.org/statistics/effective-tax-rate-size-income

(23) How do YouTubers Make Money

Brand deals, adsense, merch, gigs, touring, patreon, books...there is so much value in online video, and we've had a really hard time converting it into dollars efficiently. Lots of YouTubers are able to support themselves, some even get rich, but most can only supplement their other projects and jobs with their YouTube related revenue. It may be that creators will need to move more into subscription-style content for higher budget endeavors.

But SciShow and Crash Course are safe and secure here on the YouTube platform. Both were designed with these systems in mind and have found a path to sustainability thanks to advertisers and our Patreon patrons.

(29) The Time a Taxi Driver Stole My Money

It's funny, for such a little thing, I've thought a lot about this. I often feel bad for feeling bad about it. Like, driving a taxi is not a great job, and I'm sure drivers deserve to be paid more. But I also really dislike attitudes that enable people to break trust and take advantage of other people. And I really dislike being taken advantage of. It's a really unpleasant sensation and it makes me suddenly wary that it's happening all the time. And, often, that wariness results in me thinking I'm being ripped off when I'm really not, which then just makes it look like I have a massive chip on my shoulder.

Finding the right balance between being open to the world and protecting yourself from being exploited isn't easy. But I'm lucky to be able to be fairly open and take risks that other people might not be able to afford.

Anyway, just a story I wanted to share.

(22) Clinton vs. Sanders - POLICY IS EXCITING!

In which Hank does his best to cover the tax plans of Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders in a video that should really be much longer. In many ways, these are two plans that almost shouldn't be compared. Obviously, Bernie Sanders' biggest tax increases are contingent upon a massive change to the U.S.'s healthcare system that would free up a huge amount of revenue for a lot of Americans.

And, of course, neither candidate has a great chance of passing any significant legislation if the state of Congress remains the same. But I am looking at these plans externally from the current political climate, and doing my best to simply explain them with as little opinion as I could muster.

You can find the list of the 10 most challenged books in the U.S. here: http://www.ala.org/bbooks/frequentlychallengedbooks/top10

(01) Loving Loving Things in Los Angeles

Everyone always asks me why on Earth I live in Montana. Well, a lot of reasons. But an important one is that I have to stay a little bit disconnected from this culture, or I stop being a fan and I start getting competitive. I always want to be a fan...I want to be driven primarily by how much I like the stuff that's getting created, and not by comparing myself to it.

I think a little of both is certainly healthy, but I never want the competitive bit to outweigh the happiness and enthusiasm that comes with being a part of such a cool creative community. A community that is doing brand new stuff and changing media and changing culture and having a really great time, too.

THANKS TO ALL OF THE GREAT PEOPLE IN THIS COMMUNITY. Even as we struggle with how it's grown (and growing), even as some creators have disappointed me and this community, I have been consistently surprised by how many of the people making stuff on the internet are just enthusiastic, driven, good people. And I think audiences have a lot to do with that...so thanks to the communities of all of these people for very intentionally choosing to support and watch creators who don't suck.

(22) Understanding the Primaries - Delegates, Democracy, and America's Nonstop Political Party

In which John seeks to understand the strange and labyrinthine process used by the Republican and Democratic parties to select a nominee for President, focusing on the great state of Missouri, where the races were close but the delegate counts weren't. Along the way, there's a bit of discussion about political parties in U.S. politics, congressional redistricting and gerrymandering, superdelegates, Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, John Kasich, Hillary Clinton, and Bernie Sanders.

(18) Brazil's Government is Falling Apart...and it's Good News

During the presidency of Lula Da Silva, billions of dollars in bribes were taken to allow construction companies to overcharge the government-owned oil company, Petrobras. Now, Brazil has corruption, but it's actually pretty good for a developing country. But the people of Brazil have come to expect more, and they have been left down.

Current president, Dilma Rousseff, was chairwoman of Petrobras during the period of corruption, but no one knows whether Lula or Dilma were involved or aware. But Lula was under investigation before Rousseff appointed him to be her chief of staff, a move that means he can no longer be prosecuted by a normal court.

I think this whole thing speaks very highly of Brazil. A reckoning had to come, and I'm pleased the citizens are holding the government accountable. However, I can't stop seeing parallels between the awful partisan situation here in the U.S. and the lack of skepticism people in this story have when it comes to believing awful things about their political opponents.

Using this scandal to clean up Brazil must be done, but using it to score political points or gain power is going to rip the country apart.

This is an epic story, and no one knows where it ends. Whether Rousseff retains power and who gets elected once the house is fully cleaned out will say a lot about how this very young democracy handles its economic and cultural growth when people's perceptions are controlled largely by social media.

I think there are many good things in Brazil's future, but leaders will have to do more than fight for power. They will have to actually lead.

In which John Green meets Hussam, a 16-year-old Syrian refugee living in the Azraq refugee camp in Northern Jordan with his mother and little brother. Husam learned English in the camp in three months with help from YouTube videos and a tutor. His family is spread across four countries, and he dreams of reuniting with them and becoming an engineer so he can help rebuild Syria.

(11) The Politics of 'Parks and Rec'

I fully expect that this video won't resonate with a lot of people, and I get that. For one thing, some of the issues we face and the rhetoric we hear are legitimate and unsupportable attacks on groups of people in the U.S. and the world. It is difficult (and often seems unnecessary) to look past those attacks to see the humanity of the people waging them (especially when the attacks seem inhumane).

Additionally, many people will say that this kind of moderation will only weaken "our side." That we need energized, angry people because that energy and anger (and fear) translates to votes, which is how change happens. But frankly, I'm not sure if I should worry more about the hatred or the politics at this point.

I'm trying to do my best to remember that other people feel attacked as well...even if it seems totally irrational to me. And that both I and they are getting the most negative, distorted, evil-looking version of their opposition in their feeds.

I do not see a country-wide solution to this though...and that terrifies me. Leslie and Ron, though fictional, give me hope.

(08) Aida and Majeeda - Thoughts from the Azraq Refugee Camp

In which John visits the Azraq refugee camp in northern Jordan and shares the experiences of two young Syrian sisters, 10-year-old Aida and 12-year-old Majeeda, who arrived at the camp that morning with their family. In the coming weeks, I'll share more stories from Syrian refugees living in Jordan, and delve deeper into UNHCR's work in Jordan.

Thanks to Rosianna Halse Rojas (http://youtube.com/rosianna) for her help with this video and the trip and everything else, and also to Howaida Abdoulahad for interpreting help once I got back home.

(04) Startling Facts About the Government that Made Me Feel Good

The Federal Government burns through a lot of cash, but while it seems to me like most of that cash must go to the military, in fact most of it goes to making people's lives better and helping them live healthier, longer lives.

SOME STATS
FEDERAL EMPLOYEES
Federal government, non military - 2.7 million
Of those, more than 600,000 are postal service
Around 95,000 work for the IRS
Federal Government Contractors - Between 5 and 7 million (different ways of figuring this out yield very different numbers)
Uniformed military - 1.4 million

LOCAL AND STATE EMPLOYEES
Local government, non-edu - More than 7 million (hard to keep track of.)
Local EDU govt employees - More than 7 million.

BUDGETS
Federal government moneys not spent on social service - 1.1 trillion
Local government spending - 1.8 trillion
Local government spending on EDU - 620B

Overall Government employment
12 Million or roughly 4% of Americans
Including contractors it's around 18 million, or 6%
The government's budget is around 24% of GDP

(12) Doing the Hard(er) Thing (and some very bad news)

Basically the thing that I didn't say in this video was...if I can't make myself get up an hour earlier in the morning even if that would make my life much better, how am I supposed to do all of the things that everyone says we need to do to live more morally. Especially when the number and intensity of those things we should be doing seems to constantly increase (along with the price of many of those things.)

Do we have an infinite amount of energy to intentionally make our lives a little less enjoyable for the common good, or is there a limitation there? Is that limitation only in my head? Probably, since I have a very easy life and yet still find it difficult to do relatively easy things. Yes, indeed, despite what I said in the video, there's definitely no "ice cream cake breaking point," but it is still hard to do the hard(er) thing.

Maybe there is no limit to the number of difficult things we each can do but, instead, a limit to the number of difficult things we can choose to do. Which is why taking choice out of the matter helps me do hard things much more efficiently.

THE BAD NEWS
I've talked about this a tiny bit elsewhere, but Lemon (my beautiful and ridiculous dog) is very sick. She has bone cancer and it has gotten worse fast. She's pretty uncomfortable now and every day is harder for her. She's beautiful and loving as ever, but she is in a lot of pain and it's very hard for her and us.

Thanks for all of your kind thoughts.

Greyhounds make wonderful companions and they are always in need of homes. If you would be interested in adopting a greyhound, I would highly recommend it. And if you'd like to donate to your local greyhound adoption center in Lemon's memory, we would love that. You can find local adoption centers here: http://www.adopt-a-greyhound.org/directory/list.cfm

(05) Honest YouTube Talk Time

Let's be honest, YouTube is becoming more businesy...more corporate even. I'm a part of this, not only because I run a business in which I work with other people to produce content that I (and not they) own. But also because I run VidCon, a place where we have a track specifically designed for people who are in the business of YouTube to talk about the business of YouTube. I do /some/ things to influence that conversation, but actually try pretty hard not to do too much of that because I recognize that my view of the world is not the only valid one.

YouTube is going to keep changing, but there will always be fascinating, interesting, weird, independent stuff happening on this platform. But it will likely never again be the thing at the top of the YouTube Mountain, and I definitely feel weird about that.

(02) Is the Gender Pay Gap Real

In which John examines the complex and tangled question of the gender wage gap, and looks at some of the reasons why women who work full time are paid less than men who work full time.

Sources:

The pay gap increases as workers age, and there is a pay gap across all education and experience levels and in almost all professions. Also, the pay gap is larger for women of color, across all education and experience levels: http://www.aauw.org/files/2015/02/The-Simple-Truth_Spring-2015.pdf

The size of the gender pay gap depends on how you calculate it, but discrimination is a big factor in the pay gap: http://blog.dol.gov/2012/06/07/myth-busting-the-pay-gap/ and http://www.jec.senate.gov/public/_cache/files/9118a9ef-0771-4777-9c1f-8232fe70a45c/compendium---sans-appendix.pdf

The gender wage gap for MBA graduates increases over time: http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2015-10-20/the-real-cost-of-an-mba-is-different-for-men-and-women

Women's pay goes down on average relative to men once there are kids in a family; men's pay goes up. https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/five-myths-about-the-gender-pay-gap/2014/07/25/9e5cff34-fcd5-11e3-8176-f2c941cf35f1_story.html

The wage gap won't close at this rate until 2056: http://www.iwpr.org/publications/pubs/the-gender-wage-gap-2012/

An analysis of the role race plays in the gender wage gap: http://www.aauw.org/research/the-simple-truth-about-the-gender-pay-gap/

The gender wage gap is 10 cents in New Zealand, and 37 cents in South Korea: http://www.oecd.org/gender/data/genderwagegap.htm

The exhaustive and at times exhausting wikipedia article about the gender wage gap: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gender_pay_gap_in_the_United_States

In the U.S. (and most countries), most unpaid work is done by women: http://www.oecd.org/gender/data/balancingpaidworkunpaidworkandleisure.htm

There's a pay gap among librarians, and male librarians are disproportionately likely to become directors: http://lj.libraryjournal.com/2014/07/careers/payday-lj-salary-survey-2014/#_ and http://www.ala.org/research/librarystaffstats/diversity/libdirectors

(29) Why the Word 'Millennial' Makes me Cringe

In which Hank responds to and adds to an article John wrote about Millennials (http://www.weforum.org/agenda/2016/01/stop-patronising-young-people-and-start-listening) and discusses how uninteresting it has become to discuss generations as homogenous, and also why we seem to talk about what's wrong with one group without discussing the problems they face.

I think we're really good at picking out negative attributes...those are the things we notice, and they're the things we write about. Sure, I'm concerned that young people won't vote, but I also understand that it is difficult to be civically engaged in a world that is divorced from your reality. I also feel like people raised in the world of deep partisanship and access to infinite information (all of it sensationalized) find not just politics but life itself overwhelming, as if every decision they make is an opportunity to either save or destroy the world.

I myself was born in 1980, the cutoff between Generation X and Millennial, and while I'm fairly old I also spend a lot of time interacting with and thinking about young people, so I guess it's unsurprising that I'm sympathetic. But talking about the behavior of young people without talking about the challenges they face is dumb. And talking about one or two tendencies to behave slightly differently than other generations and then blaming that on one or two new-fangled parenting techniques (helicopter parenting) is just /awful/ sociology.

(22) Why Are Vegetarians Annoying (An Exploration of a Cultural Rift)

In which Hank delves into the meme of the annoying vegetarian, where it comes from, why it annoys us, and what's really at the root of it all.

In researching this video, I found that a lot of the numbers we throw around when talking about how bad meat eating is for the environment are really confusing and occasionally just wrong.

The most damning report (which I have quoted before) from WorldWatch turns out to have a bunch of obvious problems. Like, it counts the exhalations of livestock as a carbon emission. This isn't accurate as all carbon exhaled by livestock was recently extracted from the environment by the plants that the animals eat. I was pretty frustrated to find that WorldWatch had made this mistake (or worse, stuck by it intentionally.)

It's all further complicated by the fact that making a cow in America is actually far more efficient than making it other places. Often times we'll talk about how the food being eaten by animals could be eaten by people, but that's not always the case. Raising corn for animal consumption is much easier and cheaper and requires less resources and can be done on less-fertile land than raising it for human consumption.

So, I came out of this video with a more nuanced view, but nonetheless knowing more than ever that less meat eating means more food for more people with less impact, which is what we need most of all in this world right now.

I hope this video isn't too controversial. The number one thing I wanted to say is that I wish I were better, and I will keep working toward that, but that it is also OK to be an imperfect person in an imperfect world. And so it is possible to agree with all arguments in favor of vegetarianism and remain an omnivore.

(08) Who Am I! - Some thoughts on Personal Identity

It's difficult to understate the affect that other people's perceptions have on the kind of person you end up being. Of course, we also have tendencies and traits that are built into us, but mostly I think our selves are constructed out of what we need to become and what we are asked to become.

And, in the best cases, our selves are constructed by what we want to become....built with thoughtfulness and care.

(01) Why Does January First Start the New Year - New Year's Explained

Year End Survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/9CR8YDL

CORRECTIONS:
1. Julius Caesar was not technically the first emperor of Rome, he declared himself dictator for life but did not establish a hereditary monarchy. His cousin, who succeeded him, Augustus, established the monarchy and was thus the first emperor.

2. I mispronounced Aloysius Lilius. It's like "Allowishus" which is a name I had heard, but never seen spelled!

3. The picture of Rome I used was MUCH LATER than 46 BC

In which Hank goes deep (but not too deep) into the reasons why our calendar begins on January 1st, and why January 1st is when it is. I left a lot out, actually, like why Numa was so down with January and where the names of all the months come from. It's pretty fascinating stuff.

Also, I'd like to say that just because things are arbitrary does not mean they aren't valuable. I think New Year's is a lovely holiday and I am super down with celebrating it, even if the day that we happen to celebrate it on is not special in any way at all (except that it happened to be the date of the new moon 2061 years ago.)

I don't know that I actually did a great job of explaining the 2008 Financial Crisis. It turns out it's pretty complicated. If you are interested in doing any of these challenges, I would /really/ love to see this video duplicated because it was a great deal of fun to make.

(27) Never Satisfied - The Story of Humans _-

20% off Almost Everything Until Monday: http://www.dftba.com

Dear Hank and John (our podcast) is on iTunes and Soundcloud and wherever podcasts are free.

In this video I start out thinking about how easy it is for me to forget how cool my life is and then extend that to all of humanity because I think that this is kinda how humanity is. Now, I don't think the way we focus on problems (or are focusing on problems right now) is necessarily the most effective, but it's undeniably human. I think we need to focus less on who are opponents are and more on what we are actually trying to achieve. More and more in America, I see the discourse as "The problem is those people who are in the way of us solving the problem" rather than "The problem is the problem." It turns out solving problems (especially human problems) is very complicated and it's very easy to misunderstand the stakeholders and people's worldviews and human nature and to think that the opposition is evil when in fact the opposition is simply different.

I dunno...this year is going to be really hard. If you think the campaign rhetoric is toxic now, wait until next October. Ugh...terrifying. Let's try and do nice things for each other and get outside of our bubbles and try and understand that other people are people and they've had whole lives of maybe bad experiences and maybe bad conversations that have led them to think maybe bad things.

(19) Is Success a Bad Idea (Pizzamas Day 9 of 10)

FINAL DAYS http://store.dftba.com/collections/pizzamas

I'm not sure if I really got to the point I was trying to get to in this video...I had to cut a good bit out to fit it into four minutes. But I guess I feel like when people compliment me on my success they are putting me inside of a certain worldview that I don't believe in, but that is seen as universal by them.

What I think is important is financial and social security. But being perceived by society as important is a really weird thing to base "success" on because it is necessarily something that only a small percentage of the population can have. Not because people don't have the important skills and talents, and not because they aren't dedicated and amazing and helpful, but because it comes down to the distribution of finite resources.

Whether those resources are money or the control of others or the attention of others, basing a person's value on the unequal distribution of those resources is a bad idea and I don't want to be a part of that system, or a part of the way that people justify it to themselves or to society.

If I am successful, it is because I have accomplished many of the things I have set out to accomplish and those things have had positive impacts on people's lives. I am certainly not unique or special in having done that...in fact, I would say, the vast majority of people are successes when that definition is used, which is a thing that I truly believe. I think most people die successful, and I think imagining a world in which success is some kind of rare commodity is wrong.

I just heard from my friend and he and his family are safe. It is a relief but it does not make me feel less awful. Thank you to all of the first responders and bystanders who risked their lives today. My thoughts are with those who have lost friends and family members. I am doing my best to keep focused on sadness and not let it turn into anger at some unknown specter.

Playlist of all these videos: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6lutNECOZFw&list=PLMs_JcuNozJbxC91R5skgPpL7cnJuICun

In which Hank explores uncontrolled excitement, where it comes from, how it feels, and how it is just WONDERFUL. This experience is universal, but I think we tamp it down inside ourselves after a certain age. Yes, the world is complicated. Yes there are bad things in it. Yes, if you're totally emotionally open to good stuff, that means your totally emotionally open to bad stuff. But none of that should prevent us from loving the things we love.

THE VIDEO HAS THE WRONG DATES! It's June 23 - 25th NOT JULY!

Registration and More Information: http://www.vidcon.com

Music: Come Out to Play by Pomplamoose: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V8uaVMNFZlw

Just before uploading this video I was looking at the content schedule for VidCon 2016 (which obviously we haven't really started filling in yet) but just seeing all of the space for all of the things we're going to have is both extremely exciting and...y'know a little intimidating.

I'm really excited about 2016 and continuing to do this cool thing. Thanks to everyone who has supported VidCon in the past, and to all of the people who can't come...don't worry...the real celebration of online video happens right here on the internet every day.

The controversy surrounding the tragic attack in Benghazi has come to be a pivotal point in American politics, and also in the history of Libya. After eight congressional committee investigations it appears more and more like the continued investigation is far more about politics than it is about policy.

(16) Post-NerdCon Haze

So the thing I /meant/ to talk about in this video was:

If the distribution systems available to stories affect what kind of stories get told, then think of all of the wonderful stories that simply aren't being told. Information that simply never had a way to get out in its most effective way.

We all know that some stories are better movies than books, or better books than movies, but for so long publishing companies and book sellers (and book buyers) shunned short-format fiction because it didn't make sense financially.

It was hard to ship around, not a great value for the reader, and hard to make money on for the publisher. So most short-form media we ingested was video or non-fiction (magazine articles.)

But now that there's a simple system for digital content, suddenly serialized novels and novellas are in high demand. The kind of content that wasn't produced for a generation now has an audience again. But what about all of those amazing short stories and novellas that we didn't get in the intervening time?! Maybe all of those creators were writing novels and we got great work out of them but, then again, maybe we didn't.

And now we have all of this infrastructure built up around novels. not just in book stores, but in our own minds! The idea of novels, their importance. Not to mention the fact that most classes you can and will take will focus on that format because that's the format that has, for the most part, existed. And teachers might even discourage students from publishing in other formats because they're "not legitimate" or because the teachers grew up in a world where there was no market for that.

But instead, in this video, I mostly just yell at you without saying anything because my brain is totally fried. HOPE YOU DON'T MIND!

(25) Pissed Off for a Better World

More info: http://www.globalgoals.org

The world is screwed up but we have a plan...that plan is the UN's Global Goals, a series of 17 goals, each with explicit targets, that, if achieved, would mean that humanity has ended extreme poverty, greatly reduced injustice, and tackled climate change. Sound impossible? Well, as John discussed in his last video, we actually did an OK job achieving the last set of goals (the Millennium Development Goals) 15 years ago.

I hope you want to help out!

Sorry I punched you.

If you promote the Global Goals use #globalgoals and #nfgg so we can see what you're up to (and maybe retweet / share it.)

In which John examines the progress of the UN's Millennium Development Goals over the last 15 years and looks ahead to the Global Goals. Can we live in a world where extreme poverty and undernourishment are rare? Are we closer to gender equality? How have infant mortality rates and maternal mortality rates changed in the last 25 years? And how will we ensure that the astonishing progress since 1990 continues?

(18) Muslims Aren't Dangerous

When I first thought maybe I would make this video I typed "Muslims Aren't Dangerous" into Google to see what other people had written on the subject, or if maybe I was imagining the need for this discussion, but all I found was article after article about how dangerous Muslims are. It was so sad, so discouraging, so angering. I would read those articles and find myself, not usually, but occasionally saying "Well, I suppose you do have a point" but, of course, they didn't. They were highlighting my own ignorances and bias...we know so little of each other...but what I have found is that the vast majority of people are good, and this debate rests wholly on the idea that that is not true of Muslims.

Many people have begun to believe that in this country and it terrifies me, because it is based on nothing except fear and prejudice.

(11) Yellowstone - The Terror of Change

In which Hank has some thoughts from Yellowstone National Park, one of the coolest and most dangerous places on Earth.

In a weird way, this video is a response to John's about the refugee crisis. Anything that makes us confront that cliff of the unknowable that we exist upon every single second is scary, especially when I have known so much safety and security all of my life. But maybe the truly terrifying thing is, when faced with the reality that some people have fallen off that cliff...have lost everything, I often look to my own terror that the same thing could happen to me, rather than the hope that I can help rescue them from their fall, and whatever disturbance that brings to my (admittedly precious) stability is worth it.

Change is terrifying, but it is inevitable.

Also discussed: The difference between migrants and refugees, the rights of refugees as established by international law, the globalization of all regional crises, and how the death of 3-year-old Alan Kurdi galvanized the world.

(04) Addicted to Outrage

Census Analysis: http://youtu.be/Bvb6GcGCqIg

I've been wanting to make this video for a long time, but it's a difficult topic for me both because I recognize the power that outrage has had in my life and in driving me to learn and to act, and also because I recognize that there are many legitimate reasons to be angry and the last thing I wan to do is tell people who have not had the tremendous privileges I have had how to experience their situation.

But as I have watched the outrage cycle increase in potency and seen the negative affects as people put themselves deeper and deeper into these bubbles of toxic dehumanization, I'm legitimately worried for our future ability to handle difficult challenges in a timely manner. So...here's this video!

(11) 454 Days - Understanding America's Ridiculous Political Campaigns

In which John explores why he is not (yet) interested in the so-called Presidential Race, and discusses the U.S.'s campaign length in the context of other democracies. Side note that I couldn't fit into the video: The media is heavily invested in longer campaigns, because those campaigns buy ads on cable news (and on YouTube). I'll discuss that in another video. But for now, rest safe in the knowledge that I will not mention Donald Trump (or any other Presidential candidate in the 2016 Presidential election) until, like, 2016.

Thanks to Rosianna for the research help: http://youtube.com/rosianna

(07) Is This Video Cool

In which Hank discusses his new obsession. There are /so many/ words for "Cool" because what is cool is always changing and we need new words to embody that new aesthetic. This has resulted in a wonderful and beautiful (and sometimes worrying) array of words that mean the same thing (cool) and yet different things (the cool of a particular place and time).

This discussion of when and how slang becomes cultural appropriation is one of the best I've seen: http://www.reddit.com/r/linguistics/comments/2xqe13/slang_and_cultural_appropriation/

And this article on what cultural appropriation is is a great introduction: http://everydayfeminism.com/2015/06/cultural-appropriation-wrong/

(03) Thoughts from Yachts

In which Hank discusses the human condition and attempts to understand monstrous displays of wealth. There was a lot more I wanted to say on this topic but:

1. Four minute time limit and
2. It's really hard to talk about this stuff without getting judgy.

The thing to remember is that, to many people, my house and computer and dog and air conditioner are monstrous displays of wealth. I, personally, have more money than 50% of Americans just by virtue of not having any debt. Albeit on a smaller scale, I make the same irrational purchasing decisions and choose my own very temporary pleasure over the alleviation of real suffering every single day. Part of that is just being required to participate in culture or else be very socially uncomfortable, but it's also just straight up selfishness. I do not know how to counteract this except through force, which is why I believe in taxes, even if I hate paying them :-).

So you shouldn't judge yourself based on the capabilities of people who have been developing skills their whole lives. Wow, now that I've written that here I feel like maybe I didn't need a whole video but that's basically what the video's about...

In which Hank largely expands upon Wheaton's Law with some advice for building a better, more pleasant, more constructive internet. Of course, I would like to point out that the internet is a pretty great place as is and more good than bad occurs on and because of it. But we've all seen the hate and the anger and the flame wars and the unpleasantness, but we're all citizens of this place, and that citizenship will come with more and more responsibilities as it grows and matures.

(12) Why is College So Expensive

College is a good deal, but it could be a much better deal. A combination of factors have driven the costs of higher education in America to increase extremely quickly, pricing some people out of an education and building over a trillion dollars in student loan debt. So why? Why did those costs increase and what are schools spending all that fat cash on. Turns out, it's pretty complicated.

Can you lower your student loans?

(09) What Does It Mean to Be Human

In which John contemplates what it means to be human, and how we define personhood, while also talking a bit about the stuff he's been trying to write the last few years.

The video was inspired by a contest Bill Gates and Big History have organized over at http://bh-p.co/1Jze4sM If you make a video for the Big History contest before July 8th, you could win $5,000 and a contract to make more videos. Entry form, rules, and contest details can be found at: http://bh-p.co/1Jze4sM

I look forward to hearing your thoughts on what it means to be a person, because this is clearly something I'm still puzzling through.

(29) 15 of My Favorite Feelings

It wasn't just hard to communicate this, it was surprisingly hard to come up with them. When we're confronted with negative experiences, we want to analyze them and think about them and remember them for future use. But with positive emotions, we often just feel them and enjoy them, which is wonderful, but also leads to us putting less weight on them and it seems like they take up less space in our minds. No one feels comfortable shouting at the world about how great their day was, or what a cool person they met. Recognizing and harping on the positive experiences we have is a great way, I think, to both have a better outlook on life, and have more positive experiences. So that's what I did in today's video.

(22) 15 Rants in Four Minutes

In which Hank is Angry About Stuff, because sometimes you just gotta let it out (and also because, when he asked, Twitter said that they'd prefer him angrily raving than just being funny.)

Rants are a weird thing, I don't think they're particularly healthy, but I do think they're entertaining. The main thing I want to avoid is getting angry at individual people...unless they're endagering others or clearly breaking a social contract (STOP USING YOUR CELL PHONES IN THE MOVIE THEATER!!!)

The first rant video is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xV_4EA-wrPc

(24) Is Obamacare Working The Affordable Care Act Five Years Later

In which John Green pauses, five years after the Affordable Care Act was signed into law, to consider what we know so far about the law's effectiveness and repercussions. I also look at health care in the United States more generally, and the limited scope of the Affordable Care Act relative to the size of the overall health care system in the U.S.

I got a ton of help from Aaron Carroll, who hosts the great Health Care Triage https://www.youtube.com/user/thehealthcaretriage, but any errors are my fault and mine alone.

SOURCES:
More than 17% of US GDP goes to health care expenses: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Health_care_in_the_United_States
The U.S. spends way more on health care than any other country: http://www-tc.pbs.org/prod-media/newshour/photos/2012/10/02/US_spends_much_more_on_health_than_what_might_be_expected_1_slideshow.jpg
And yet our healthcare outcomes are not generally better (and are in many cases worse): http://www.commonwealthfund.org/publications/fund-reports/2014/jun/mirror-mirror
44 (or maybe 46) million Americans were uninsured in 2009: http://www.pbs.org/healthcarecrisis/uninsured.html
This NYT article assessing the ACA is excellent: http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2014/10/27/us/is-the-affordable-care-act-working.html#/
Understanding pre-existing condition exclusions: http://kff.org/health-reform/fact-sheet/health-insurance-market-reforms-pre-existing-condition/
Medical debt is the biggest cause of U.S. bankruptcy: http://www.cnbc.com/id/100840148
Employer-based insurance distorts the labor market in the United States: https://www.bostonfed.org/economic/conf/conf50/conf50e.pdf
Both the access and the cost savings parts of the Affordable Care Act are discussed really well at this wikipedia page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patient_Protection_and_Affordable_Care_Act
We are nowhere close to a path to health care spending stability: https://www.cbo.gov/publication/45471
But the uninsurance rate has dropped dramatically: http://www.gallup.com/poll/180425/uninsured-rate-sinks.aspx
And more than 12 million people have gotten insurance through the health care exchanges set up by Obamacare: http://acasignups.net/
The rollout of healthcare.gov was a disaster: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HealthCare.gov
Insurance premiums rising more slowly than before exchanges: http://kff.org/health-reform/issue-brief/analysis-of-2015-premium-changes-in-the-affordable-care-acts-health-insurance-marketplaces/
More insurance companies are participating in the exchanges this year than last year: http://www.wsj.com/articles/u-s-states-to-get-more-insurers-under-affordable-care-act-1411495473
The law is costing less than expected: http://www.nytimes.com/2015/03/10/us/politics/budget-office-again-reduces-its-estimate-on-cost-of-the-affordable-care-act.html
Is the law actually improving health? It seems so at least for young adults and also for colonscopy screening rates, but much is still unknown: http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2014/10/27/us/is-the-affordable-care-act-working.html#/
Many are still uninsured and underinsurance is a huge problem: http://www.nytimes.com/2014/12/02/upshot/underinsurance-remains-big-problem-under-obama-health-law.html
(Don't get mad at me for linking a lot to the New York Times; they do way more data analysis and reporting on this stuff than anyone else I've come across)
Britons live longer and healthier lives than Americans despite being pretty similar lifestyle-wise: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK62373/
Our health care spending will sink us in the long-run, but if anything the situation was worse before the ACA: https://www.cbo.gov/publication/45471

Tickets for Tour Because Awesome: http://tourbecauseawesome.tumblr.com

Paper Towns Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rFGiHm5WMLk

Transfer your Subbable account: http://www.subbable.com

In which Hank talks about the weirdness of individuality in the internet age where the crowd is distributed and often alone...acting individually and making individual decisions, but being understood as some massive, unthinking herd. And how he thinks that the lack of proper conception of how crowds actually function could be cured by more nerds going to concerts.

It's ne thing to sacrifice your individuality, which is what I think we all do to some extent when we become part of something. It's quite another thing to have it taken from you because it makes the internet easier to understand.

In which John discusses paper towns, paper streets, mountweazels, and other fictitious entries.

Crash Course Kids: http://www.youtube.com/crashcoursekids Ages 7 - 11

In which Hank discusses the weird required secrecy of business and how frustrating it is to be feeling things but not be able to discuss them.

Whether it's excitement or anger or frustration, I'm just not used to not being able to talk about it. I would like to find ways to avoid this, because I think business is fascinating and I want to share it with everyone. But at the moment, I can't.

Thanks to Izzy for the title inspiration.

(06) WE WON! Net Neutrality and Re-Thinking Cynicism

Winning in politics is often bizarre, drawn out, incremental, and ultimately a surprise. As such, winning often doesn't feel that good. But I think it's very important to take a bit of time when it happens to enjoy it.

And also to recognize that the win would not have happened without the people who worked hard to lobby and bug their congresspeople and force a decision down the throat of a bunch of unhappy corporations. So thank you so much to everyone who campaigned to keep the internet neutral.

(20) Why Are Fewer People Studying Science and Engineering

I went to New York City to talk to a bunch of press people about science education and the need for more graduates with STEM degrees. It was part of a campaign I'm doing with Emerson, an engineering company that helps make the world work.

As is Melody's poster: http://store.dftba.com/products/keeping-the-promise-poster
In which John discusses the tortured and fascinating quotation, "I'm in love with cities I've never been to and people I've never met," usually attributed to his novel Paper Towns. Along the way he touches on the strangeness of being convinced by the Internet that he wrote something and the complexity of credits and sources in online discourse. Also he illegally downloads his own novel.

(23) Interviewing the President

Watch the Full Interview Here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GbR6iQ62v9k

In which Hank takes you on a trip to Washington DC and into the White House. The President makes a similar journey, though in his own private helicopter. A beautiful, gigantic helicopter that I saw through 2-inch thick glass.

I didn't do any thoughts or analysis in this video, but I've done some on my Tumblr: http://edwardspoonhands.com

I am exhausted, but also pretty euphoric. Thanks to everyone who was a part of pulling this off. Working with the White House can be pretty intense, but they did a fantastic job. To everyone who was awesome and supportive. To Bethany and Glozell, who were fantastic and very fun to hang out with. To everyone who has made YouTube such an interesting and diverse place. And to Paul Janssen, who first synthesized the active ingredient in Immodium, without whom none of this would have been possible.

Thanks to everyone at AFC Wimbledon for their hospitality and support. I can't tell you how many hundreds of people came up to me and told me how much the nerdfighter community's support means to them.

Thanks as always to Rosianna (http://youtube.com/rosianna) for spearheading the sponsorship and planning all of the things.

A bonus video in which John discusses divided loyalty, football (real), fan-driven projects, the meaning of sports, his weird over-the-top love for Liverpool Football Club, his weird over-the-top love for AFC Wimbledon, and the forthcoming match between the two. Wimbledon/Nerdfighteria scarves: http://store.dftba.com/products/afc-wimbledon-scarf

All the advertising revenue from hankgames goes to AFC Wimbledon: http://www.youtube.com/hankgames

You can watch the match live at 3 PM eastern on Monday on Fox Sports 1. If you don't have Fox Sports 1 or don't live in the U.S., there are lots of ways to stream it. This is, of course, illegal and I don't recommend it; I'm just saying it's POSSIBLE.

(30) Racism in the United States - By the Numbers

In which John talks about racism in the United States.

The playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLMs_JcuNozJb-5TJ3uuvqPzQVjO_XarED If you have suggestions for additions, let me know!

SOURCES

On average, black men's prison sentences are 20% longer than white men's for comparable crimes: http://www.wsj.com/articles/SB10001424127887324432004578304463789858002

Black people and white people use illegal drugs at similar rates, but black people are far more likely to be arrested for drug use: http://www.vox.com/2014/7/1/5850830/war-on-drugs-racist-minorities

African Americans are far more likely to be stopped and searched (although the contraband hit rate is higher among white people) in California: http://articles.latimes.com/2008/oct/23/opinion/oe-ayres23

And in New York (where the data isn't quite as good but appears to be comparable to CA): http://www.nyclu.org/content/nypd-quarterly-reports

Those wrongfully convicted and later exonerated by DNA are disproportionately African American: http://www.innocenceproject.org/Content/DNA_Exonerations_Nationwide.php

Black kids are far more likely to be tried as adults and more likely to receive life sentences: http://www.nytimes.com/roomfordebate/2012/06/05/when-to-punish-a-young-offender-and-when-to-rehabilitate/the-race-factor-in-trying-juveniles-as-adults

Black former convicts get fewer employer callbacks than white former convicts: http://www.irp.wisc.edu/publications/focus/pdfs/foc232i.pdf

Emily and Brendan are more hirable than Lakisha and Jamal: http://www.chicagobooth.edu/capideas/spring03/racialbias.html

On that front, this study is also interesting: http://psycnet.apa.org/journals/apl/90/3/553/ and similar results have been found in the UK: http://www.theguardian.com/money/2009/oct/18/racism-discrimination-employment-undercover and also in Australia: http://ftp.iza.org/dp4947.pdf

Also, this news story has some great analysis: http://www.nytimes.com/2014/12/25/business/for-recent-black-college-graduates-a-tougher-road-to-employment.html?smid=pl-share

High schools with mostly African American and Latino students are less likely to offer courses in Algebra II or Chemistry than high schools with mostly white students: https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/1382484-ocr-letter-disparities.html

This article explores many of the other ways that increasingly segregated schools have negatively affected African American students: http://www.nytimes.com/2014/12/21/sunday-review/why-are-our-schools-still-segregated.html?smid=pl-share

And this story discusses the fact that African American students are more than twice as likely to be suspended as white students--even in preschool. http://www.npr.org/blogs/codeswitch/2014/03/21/292456211/black-preschoolers-far-more-likely-to-be-suspended

The ACP report on racial disparities in U.S. health care: http://www.acponline.org/advocacy/current_policy_papers/assets/racial_disparities.pdf
This (dated) study is also damning: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/3695664 and there's lot of good info here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Race_and_health

More info on increasing disparities in life expectancy between black and white people in the US: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1497364/

The most recent polls show fewer white people thinking racism is not a problem than the ones I used in this video (although still a huge divide): http://www.cnn.com/2014/12/22/politics/cnn-poll-racial-divide-justice/ and http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/on-racial-issues-america-is-divided-both-black-and-white-and-red-and-blue/2014/12/26/3d2964c8-8d12-11e4-a085-34e9b9f09a58_story.html and http://www.thefiscaltimes.com/2014/12/28/New-Poll-Shows-Racial-Divide-Crosses-Party-Lines

Racial wealth disparity and the role that inheritance plays: http://iasp.brandeis.edu/pdfs/Author/shapiro-thomas-m/racialwealthgapbrief.pdf
Related wikipedia article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Racial_inequality_in_the_United_States

The widening of the wealth gap: http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2014/12/12/racial-wealth-gaps-great-recession/

Nonvideo recommendations: I really like Roxane Gay's work in Slate and The Butter; this story in the NYT http://www.nytimes.com/2014/12/25/business/for-recent-black-college-graduates-a-tougher-road-to-employment.html?smid=pl-share; Chris Rock's recent interview at http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/top-five-filmmaker-chris-rock-753223, and Ashley Ford's commentary and analysis: https://twitter.com/ismashfizzle. Also Kiese Laymon's wriitng is great, including http://gawker.com/my-vassar-college-faculty-id-makes-everything-ok-1664133077

Thank you all so much for your giving your time, talent, and/or money. The Project for Awesome really is unique in the world of giving, and the charities we give to are always so astounded and enthused by what is often surprising but very needed money.

Thank you all. I'm so pleased to be a part of this community.

Pretty much everything we do here on YouTube is in some way based on trails The Brothers Chaps blazed. Our history, people! It is here!

Also, it's Black Friday, 20% off of Everything at DFTBA.com! http://dftba.com

Some people have mentioned that Hank is the silly brother and John is the serious brother, so we decided to riff off of that a bit, but let's be honest...we're both the silly brother, and we're both the serious brother :-)

Of course we talked for longer than four minutes, so I'm going to upload the extra over on HanksChannel soon: http://www.youtube.com/hankschannel

New DFTBA Hoodie: http://store.dftba.com/products/dftba-hoodie
Feminist as F#*( Shirt: http://store.dftba.com/products/feminist-as-fuck-shirt


I didn't have time to say this in the video, but one of the coolest things about "octothorpe" is that it is a word that is part of our language that doesn't have linguistic roots. It was 100% made up. We have other words like this, but not very many.

(10) I Kinda AM Batman

In which Hank rebuts John's stance on Batman by observing that Batman is not a fantasy of individuals, but a personification of anger and frustration at injustice AND our collective ability to act to make the world better.

And then he proposes his own reason for being frustrated with Batman...because if he (and every other title-card, mass-culture hero) is supposed to personify and thus represent all of us...why do they always represent the same groups over and over and over again?

(07) I Kind of Hate Batman

In which John reveals why he thinks Batman kind of sucks, both as a billionaire and as a Superhero. A couple edits:

1. Obviously some crime is caused by horrible sociopathic monsters.

2. Bruce Wayne has done SOME constructive stuff for Gotham. Like he built a mass transit system, although it was of course later destroyed. But also, to be fair, Bruce Wayne did many other things for Gotham in some of the comics series, including funding hospitals and schools and the police department. (NOT IN THE MOVIES, THOUGH.)

3. I did not acknowledge the existence of my massive nose zit in this video. That was a mistake, and I apologize for it.

(26) Food Is Weird - Understanding Agriculture in the Developing World

In which John Green flies in a helicopter with Bill Gates in Ethiopia, investigates a new form of cursing, and discusses agricultural reform--specifically, how the UN's World Food Program is trying to improve maize yields in Ethiopia. If you can break the vicious cycle of low incomes leading to low harvests, agricultural productivity per hectare (NOT HECTACRE) can increase dramatically, as we've seen in China and Brazil. It seems boring, I know, but this is a big reason hundreds of millions of people have emerged from poverty in the past 30 years. So hopefully it will happen in Ethiopia! But, as usual, the truth resists simplicity.

(15) The Bizarre State of Copyright

In which Hank discusses what intellectual property is, and how copyright is increasingly being policed by dumb robots that don't have very much to do with the law, but have everything to do with it just being REALLY COMPLICATED and there being terrifyingly massive amounts of media to regulate.

(12) EBOLA! (...meningitis)

In which John is diagnosed with ebola by the Internet but turns out to be suffering from viral meningitis. How should we imagine novel diseases and how should we combat them? And why do we only focus on diseases that we fear will affect "us"? How does the way we imagine "us" shape the way we respond to disease outbreaks? Questions like that are examined while meningitis headaches are lamented.

(08) Who Owns a Monkey's Selfie And a Song About Meningitis!

Due to brain fog, I didn't explain any of the copyright stuff particularly well, but (in summation) a photographer is suing the Wikimedia Foundation (the people who create Wikipedia) for acting as if a photograph is in the public domain when he believes it is not. The only way to determine who is correct is to have a judge decide...that's how copyright law works, which is really weird.

I mean, the question also becomes, if I drop my camera and it takes a really great shot...do I own that picture or not, just because the force of gravity took it.

Also, I'm curious whether the work of a non-human owned by a human (like a dog) would pass to that human. Just like something created by a piece of computer software would be owned by the person who owns the software. It doesn't change this case because no one owns that monkey.

ANYHOW! Feel better John, and let's hope Calvin Harris doesn't sue us :-)

(01) PUNISHMENT OF PAIN AND SCIENCE!

In which Hank is Punished by sharing the science of pain while he experiences various forms of pain.

If you're wondering, the most painful thing I did, oddly enough, was the brain freeze. I think I pushed it past the place where you would normally get a brain freeze by a couple of slurpee sips and that caused a really significant ouch.

Second most painful was the funny bone....then the muscle stress.

(25) Towering Mountains of Ignorance

This was a somewhat challenging topic to take on in four minutes, so here's a little more explanation.

I'm not saying that we don't know things...we know lots of things. But particularly when it comes to social and cultural and economic stuff, we really don't. It's so hard to run experiments on the real world, that we tend to do the studies and then no one changes their mind and everyone explains the data in a different way.

But you can run the "Harry Potter" experiment again with different inputs because "Harry Potter" can only happen once.

Of course, there are people who are much better at guessing than other people because they know much more about the situations. People who understand, at least, what is and is not possible (which is an excellent place to start if you're trying to, say, create an independent Palestinian state.)

Same goes for running a business...you will never take the most successful course, because there are infinite courses and only one maximum one. But some people are very good at finding good courses because they understand their customers and their markets and their employees and have fairly accurate constructions of reality as it relates to their business.

But the idea that it is the responsibility of every person to have an opinion on everything that matters...and then cling to that opinion as an important part of their identity, sucks. I don't like it.

I would rather we discuss these things in terms of values, which is really where our opinions tend to arise from anyhow. So when asked "how do we create more jobs in America" we don't really try to answer that question. We try to answer the question "How do we create more jobs in America while promoting our own personal values?"

For things like "How do you end a war" or "How do you feed hungry people" or "How do you eliminate poverty?" I'm going to admit straight up that I don't know...and defer to the experts because they know a heck of a lot more than me. I don't think there's anything wrong with that. So, yay, I DON'T KNOW!!!

(04) 13 Things to Know about Concerts

Going to shows has always made me anxious, but I also tend to find them to be uniquely wonderful experiences that I can't imagine missing after their over. So I wanted to offer up some advice for people who might be nervous about going to shows. A couple of things I thought of after I made the video include:

1. Make sure that you're headed to a part of town you'll be safe in and have a very good and stable plan for getting home.

2. It's usually pretty easy to meet performers after the show, but they often have to move their own equipment and the venue will require them to be out by a certain time, so understand if they can't hang.

If you have any other advice, make sure to list it in the comments.

There are still tickets for a few of our shows if you want to come: http://edwardspoonhands.com/post/89196780970/harryandthepotters-poster-illustration-by

(20) Pre-History of Online Video

I'm headed to California to celebrate online video...for those of you who aren't able to come home, you get to celebrate it as well. Spend some time with the greatest internet videos ever made.

The Show with Ze Frank - https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLMs_JcuNozJa7tg80N_kITisZjHHeE3uo
For a while there it really felt like everyone on the internet was a Sports Racer. This listing of Ze's videos on YouTube is fantastic because a lot of them don't have many views so, if you want to, you can go through and experience them from the beginning with a lot of other Nerdfighters. Enjoy.

Homestar Runner - http://www.homestarrunner.com
I really believe this is one of the internet's greatest treasures. You could spend weeks rummaging around in here, and I encourage you to do that. There are not a lot of things that are simply as joyful and peculiar and deeply pleasing in my life as Homestar Runner. Just remember that, back in the day, my entire dorm would run to the nearest computer when we heard a new sbemail was out.

All Your Base - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8fvTxv46ano
The thing to remember about All Your Base Are Belong to Us is that it was a self-sustained project that involved the willing collaborations of hundreds of individuals. The promotion of the original meme, the photoshopping, the musicians who created the synthesized voices...people were creating it simply because they loved being a part of its creation.

The End of the World - http://www.albinoblacksheep.com/flash/end

(16) The Myth of Greatness

Animal Wonders on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/anmlwndrs

This was a hard video to squeeze into four minutes, I had to leave a lot of information in the cracks. If a city of 70,000 people simultaneously contained dozens of the most influential humans in all history, it simply can't be that there was something special about those humans, the odds are just too great.

It's about circumstance, and one of the most important parts of that, and one thing that I admire greatly in people and am lucky enough to have found some of on my own, is the deep belief that your goals are important. Important enough to get out of that comfy bed. Important enough to overcome the apathy and ennui. Important enough to work hard and make sacrifices for.

Amazingly, a lot of those things that people become extremely passionate about and believe in so insanely deeply are, on their own, completely arbitrary. Like Football...people train their entire lives, wreck their bodies and destroy their health to put a ball over a line. It is important because it is important...and that's true of all of the great human endeavors. We are the deciders...the great trick of great people is convincing yourself that what you're doing is so important that it's worth sacrifice to achieve.

And I am very grateful to Nerdfighteria for inspiring that belief in me for the last seven years. I've never questioned how important and wonderful this is, and that's because of this community.

Tell the FCC that they should reclassify broadband internet as a telecommunications (or "Common carrier") service. Right now broadband is regulated like TV or radio, which doesn't make sense.

This is a public comment for the public record...official government stuff... so you'll have to include your actual name and address.

Lyrics:

I Love Science
Can you even imagine
(Way back in the past when)
We thought that storms were caused by petty gods
Fightin' on top of a mountain.

And yeah I like a good story
But eventually it's gonna bore me
If it doesn't have that truth;
That incontrovertible, testable, repeatable proof

I love Science
I Love Charles Darwin
Cause I don't think it's bold to question what you're told
If you're told that the world's a thousand years old.
There's nothing here to argue against,
It's a process not an ideology,
And I! Love! Science!

Sometimes people ask me,
Of all of the centuries,
Which I'd pick to live life in.
We'll, that's pretty easy...
Right now. If you think objectively.
If you like hot running water,
And memory foam beds,
And TV shows and cell phones,
And not being dead

You love science,
And I love Carl Sagan
'Cause I think it's fly to look up at the sky
And never ever ever stop wondering why
There's nothing here to argue against
It's a process not an ideology,
And I! Love! Science!

Wooly mammoth embryos
Vaccines for smallpox and polio
Your TV set, the internet
Your PS4, supersonic jets.

Exoplanets galaxies,
DNA, germ theory, relativity,
Just take a sec to think about it
How screwed we would be without it.

I love Science
And I love Rosalind Franklin,
'Cause I want to die remembering why
The truth is more important than winning a prize.
There's nothing here to argue against.
It's a process not an ideology,
And I! Love! Science!

(18) What is The Oldest Song

In which Hank sings the oldest song we know of...the Seikilos Epitaph. Most songs from this period were written with only the lyrics, but the Seikilos Epitaph, buried as part of a funeral, contained an unmistakable chord chart. And so, 2000 years later, I can still sing it for you.

Here the Seikilos song on the lyre...possibly a little bit more likely of an interpretation. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xERitvFYpAk

(11) What Boys Look For in Girls

We all want to be appreciated...but initial attraction isn't really based in reality. There's a really huge audience of very young women on YouTube, and I'm really worried about them basing their self-worth on whether they appeal to guys. That seems to be how the world is set up. I'm a dude, of course, so I'm basing this on what I've seen on YouTube and IRL, but I don't think I'm crazy.

I should have said in the video...this isn't meant to be relationship advice. There are lots of good people out there with whom to have relationships, but what they're "looking for" doesn't necessarily correspond with what they actually want or need. That "love at first sight" moment is pretty much the least interesting moment of a relationship (despite being one of the most exciting.)

The song at the end is Marilyn Hanson, which will be on my new album which is coming out...oh...less than a month from now? Exciting!

(04) Mass Incarceration in the US

Thanks to Visually (http://Visual.ly) for facilitating the creation of this video, to http://youtube.com/kurzgesagt for the animation, and to The Prison Policy Initiative for research help and fact checking. (http://www.prisonpolicy.org).

It wasn't easy to pick this topic, but I believe that America's 40-year policy of mass incarceration is deeply unethical, not very effective, and promotes the security of the few at the expense of the many.

It's hard for me, as a person who was born into privilege, to imagine the challenges convicted criminals face, often for crimes that are utterly non-violent.

If you're feeling like you want to do something about this, I'm mostly just making this video as an informational resource and to encourage people to think of felons not as bad, scary people but just as people.

The people at The Prison Policy Initiative were very helpful in the creation of this video and if you want to learn more about their work and how to get involved go to http://www.prisonpolicy.org

Along the way, he discusses Ian Shoales (aka Ian Schoales), a public radio commentator with whom Hank and John were obsessed. Also: John calls Hank and attempts to broadly define art. Furthermore: Husky voice.

(21) The Great Goose Migration

I'm not even joking...this video is actually about me and my wife going to the Rocky Mountain Front to observe migrating geese and I AIN'T EVEN SORRY!

The Music is a song by The Leewards that was never released to the public. They're a band that a friend of mine was in from 2001 to 2005, you can get their second album on Bandcamp for free (or pay for it, because it's great http://leewards.bandcamp.com/.) This song was on their first album, which was never released so, like, only a few dozen people have ever heard this song before.

And now, because of this video, HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of people will hear it! That's REALLY WEIRD!

I find it very strange that there is so much wonderful music in the world that no one will ever hear again....just lost...forever...like a goose in the wind. ALL WE ARE IS GEESE IN THE WIND!

If you haven't heard, there have been some really troubling stories about manipulative and even possibly abusive relationships between online creators and their fans.

(07) Thoughts from a Cruise

I went on a cruise...which is not something I ever thought I'd do. It was marvelous and extremely peculiar and, yes, definitely made me feel guilty. But immensely valuable...not just because I go to do amazing things with amazing people, but because it helped me understand how hard we will work, how much we will pay, the crazy things we'll do...to get to community. People are hardly individuals, there is nothing so valuable as nestling into the warm comfort of a trusted community and I'm so happy to have that and, occasionally, to be able to help others get to it.

Also, he discusses the Olympics and how weird they are and why we value these weird things and how it doesn't really matter why because caring is valuable for it's own sake.

(In fact, decreasing infant mortality has consistently slowed population growth all over the world.)

(31) GOOD NEWS - 14 Reasons 2014 May Be the Best Year Ever

In which John Green shares some encouraging trends and statistics about the current state of humans in the world. Poverty and infant mortality are decreasing. Fewer people are dying of malaria. The world's poorest areas are growing faster than the rest of the world. More people (especially girls) have educational opportunities. The Internet is getting faster. Cancer mortality is decreasing. And the Colts are in the NFL playoffs. In short, there are many reasons to be hopeful that 2014 might be the best year on record for humans, even if much of this growth is not (currently) sustainable.

Most of the statistics in this video came from the UN: http://unstats.un.org/UNSD/Demographic/sconcerns/income/default.htm
Or from Human Progress: http://humanprogress.org/
Or from the wikipedia article about motor vehicle deaths: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_motor_vehicle_deaths_in_U.S._by_year

In which Hank discusses some of the coolest things he's learned while answering people's questions about the world. Often times, I have to say, these questions start out with "This is probably a stupid question, but..." when really, any curiosity is good curiosity...and people who expect all people to know all things are the real idiots.

(06) I Am President Snow

In which Hank discusses The Hunger Games, the extreme inequality of our society, and what it means to be a citizen of The Capitol. Inequality is so difficult to fight in our world because there is no President Snow. I'm not saying that there are no bad people, but inequality is natural, and so we can't hate ourselves for being a part of it. But because it is so inevitable, we have to create structures to reduce it, because inequality is terrible both morally and economically.

Thanks to very generous anonymous contributors to the Foundation, every dollar you donate up to $125,000 will be matched. And because the Foundation to Decrease Worldsuck has 0 overhead, every penny you donate will go to p4a charities chosen by the nerdfighter community.

(22) How to Apologize like a Fartbag

In which Hank talks about apologies.

I've been thinking about it a lot because some of my good friends did dumb things, realized how dumb they were, and made very good apologies, not because they're good at apologizing but because the legitimately feel bad for the harm that they've caused.

On the other hand, some other people on the internet seem perpetually convinced that the world is out to get them and that they are in a battle to confirm that they are always right. But, y'know, you're never always right, and the fact that you didn't intend to hurt someone has no bearing on whether or not you hurt someone.

ChescaLeigh's video was really helpful for me and is more specific to when you get called out on being inappropriate or hurting an entire group of people with your language or actions...she is REALLY AMAZING...

(08) Applying for Health Insurance - Then and Now

In which John Green attempts to apply for new health insurance coverage using the Affordable Care Act's insurance exchanges and then through a private insurer that existed before the ACA (aka Obamacare) went into effect.

It's of course too soon to tell which of these options will be cheaper, which will offer the best coverage, and so on, but I wanted to explore how the (still very glitchy) exchanges compare to the pre-ACA experience of trying to get approved for coverage.

Yes, I realize this video is over 4 minutes. I think it meets the definition of an educational video, but I'll leave it up to y'all to discuss in Our Pants: http://nerdfighteria.vanillaforums.com/

(27) Invalid Arguments - Climate Change

There are only a few topics that seem less obvious but more hotly debated than climate change. It's here, it's happening, it's caused by humanity, and it is one of the largest problems humanity will ever face. But I believe we will face it, and we'll face it with the desperate ingenuity and bravado with which we have faced our entire history on this planet. And we will survive it, as long as we can finally freaking agree that "it" isn't a conspiracy theory made up to annoy the rich and powerful.

(24) Started from the Bottom - Benjamin Franklin and Drake Compared

In which John compares the Drake song "Started from the Bottom (Now We Here)" with Benjamin Franklin's Autobiography, two American dream narratives that turn out to be significantly more complex and problematic than they initially seem.

Videos from the #tfiosmovie set will return next Tuesday, but I've been wanting to make this movie for months, because I am weird.

(20) 42 Amazing Maps

The map, as an innovation, is extremely important. Simply constructing a useful representation of our world onto a piece of paper (or clay or vellum or whatever) vastly increased the capabilities of humankind. But we continue to add and alter this medium, in ways that allow for greater understanding of our world and even of ourselves.

So in this video I talk about 42 maps that are really amazing.

(03) Bigger Pizzas - A Capitalist Case for Health Care Reform

In which John discusses some of the many ways that our current massively inefficient health care system leads to the irrational allocation of capital. He discusses the fascinating cases of Henry Reich (creator of http://www.youtube.com/minutephysics) and Hank Green (creator of, you know, all this) and how in a world without health care reform, their careers might look very different. John argues that employer-dependent health insurance privileges employees over entrepreneurs, thus limiting innovation, growth, and job creation.

Check out Henry's videos: http://www.youtube.com/minutephysics and http://www.youtube.com/minuteearth

(20) Why Are American Health Care Costs So High

In which John discusses the complicated reasons why the United States spends so much more on health care than any other country in the world, and along the way reveals some surprising information, including that Americans spend more of their tax dollars on public health care than people in Canada, the UK, or Australia. Who's at fault? Insurance companies? Drug companies? Malpractice lawyers? Hospitals? Or is it more complicated than a simple blame game? (Hint: It's that one.)

For a much more thorough examination of health care expenses in America, I recommend this series at The Incidental Economist: http://theincidentaleconomist.com/wordpress/what-makes-the-us-health-care-system-so-expensive-introduction/

http://www.subbable.com

Advertising doesn't care how you feel about content, and we are afraid that, if the current system stands, content that people love and connect to (which is necessarily difficult to make, and doesn't appeal as broadly) will become rare while content that is distracting (which is universally appealing) will be the norm.

Subbable is our attempt to slow that trend...even to stop it. But it's not a problem that can be solved by technology...it must be solved by people.

***EDUCATIONAL VIDEOS ARE EXEMPT FROM TIME LIMITS :-p***

The situation in Egypt is extremely complicated and changing constantly. The arguments between the military and the Muslim Brotherhood go back over half a century and they are much more complicated than the press tends to give them credit for.

I just wanted to share a tiny bit of context to help the world understand the different stakeholders, what they want, why they're angry, and why the first democratically elected leader of Egypt lasted so little time.

Thank you very much to Mohktar Awad for spending so much time on the phone with me yesterday setting me straight!

(31) Optimism is Not Insane

In which Hank talks about our cognitive bias toward bad news, how that affects us, and why there are, in fact, lots of reasons to be optimistic about the future of humanity on the Earth. All of this was inspired by the people I met in Seattle while helping launch this Kickstarter for a space telescope (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1458134548/arkyd-a-space-telescope-for-everyone-0?ref=live).

Also, one of the guys behind that project wrote a book that heavily inspired this video and it is really really good and very interesting. I suggest you buy and read it: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1451614217?ie=UTF8&camp=213733&creative=393185&creativeASIN=1451614217&linkCode=shr&tag=vlogbrothers-20

Now I want to be clear that I don't think humanity is safe, or that we're not in the middle of a significant mass-extinction event, or that we're royally screwing up the planet, or that future generations won't be astounded by our arrogance...

I do, however, think that there is a very good chance that humanity will still be creating and solving problems thousands of years from now. Because creating and solving problems appears to be the two things we're best at.
