First complete (prototype) set of Cards Against Nerdfighteria. There are a lot of changes I’d like to make, but this seemed like a good stopping point for now. 75 question cards, 200 answer cards. Mostly nerdfighter related, though there are quite a few tangential ones.

COME TO THE NERDFIGHTER MEETUP AT LEAKYCON we’re gonna have a set and it’s gonna be awesome =D

Ambiguous Victories and Real Progress: Behind the Beautiful Forevers

In which John continues the Nerdfighter Book Club’s discussion of Katherine Boo’s Behind the Beautiful Forevers. Are there unambiguous victories? How should we approach our understanding of and relationship with charities domestic and international? I look forward to reading all of your thoughts in comments when I get back.

Super fun nerdfighter beach gathering. Y’all are amazing.

DFTBA

Gatherings are the best! Nerdfighters are the best! If you have organized a gathering, make sure to add it to our calendar of events so that everyone knows it’s a thing!

EVERY VLOGBROTHERS PUNISHMENT!

So I got a little confused about who owed what punishments and then we went a little overboard and with the help of a team of Nerdfighting researchers rooted out the cause and effect of EVERY SINGLE PUNISHMENT ON VLOGBROTHERS SINCE JANUARY OF 2007!

Here’s a playlist of all of those videos.

The thing I realized while doing this is that we have been doing this for a very….very….very long time. Holy monkey butts…a long time.

From Evan:

Dragons and Dinosaurs for Henry

As requested by Henry Green, this is “a video about dragons and dinosaurs where they fight together against bad guys, and there are scary parts, but not too many scary parts.”

WHY is Hank Punished? The Answers!!

live-in-to-the-answer:

Ok, so in this video John mentioned that both he and Hank had outstanding punishments and he proposed a challenge - if nerdfighteria could loan a million dollars before vlogbrothers got to its 1000th video, they’d to the punishments, if not, no punishments.

We did, of course (never underestimate nerdfighters). And someone pointed out that John’s deal wasn’t totally fair, so he had agreed to go double-or-nothing

So then a couple weeks later Hank and John started Brotherhood 2.0 week and made videos back and forth every day for a week, thus completing one punishment each.

They now owed us both one more punishment. John put out this very intriguing request but nothing ever came of it.

In the meantime, John made this six-minute long video, which nerdfighters decided was not exempt because it was not “educational”. So in this video, he accepted his punishment. And in this video, Hank gave him the chosen punishment: eat a gross meal Henry came up with. So he did that here.

So, they still each owe a punishment! 

As we have researched and looked into everything last night, this seems to be the general conclusion. One punishment owed each!
