Update from Tom's Family

First of all we’d like to thank everyone again for all the emails and videos for Tom.


Tom has improved a lot the last week:


Although he still has problems with his eyesight(but it is improving little by little), he’s started to read the emails everyone send him, he has also watched already some of the videos posted. He’s able to eat by himself, and he has a large appetite. He still has some problems with his equilibrium, so he has…

A Message from Ningmaster Tom's Family

Dear Nerdfighters,



We like to thank al nerdfighters for the hundreds of e-mails and reactions on the video. We are touched by all the concerned reactions, encouragements, and prayers for Tom and our family.



Tom is still sleeping a lot, but he is conscious and he answered our questions well today. At this moment he still has some difficulties with moving the left side of his body. Tomorrow he probably will leave the intensive care and move to a normal room in the… Continue

Hey John! I just started watching the Brotherhood 2.0 videos way back from 2007 when the project first started. (okay I didn't JUST start watching them; I'm on July something or other). I love the whole project. I especially love the projects to decrease world suck. Something about all the videos I've seen (I've seen some new ones too) just make me feel more comfortable about being me. I love TFiOS and LFA and I've started Papertowns but haven't gotten around to finishing it yet. I can honestly say that watching yours and Hank's videos has been the best use of hours that should be spent doing homework instead. As much as I want to say Tumblr has that title, I cannot. I must be honest with myself. ANYWAY, thanks. For everything. Even though you don't really know me..at all. Sometimes I think you're comparable to my version of Peter Van Houten but a way better version. I hope that's not creepy. Okay I'll go now. DFTBA. Thanks for reading.

Hi John! I'm a new Nerdfighter, and I just wanted to say how big of a fan I am of what you and your brother do :) I currently rely on your Crash Course World History for this school year, and I'm a fan of the Vlogbrothers videos as well. This is just a shout out to say thanks for all you do!!
DFTBA :)

John! Just wanted to say both you and Hank are so inspirational!

I've been having a few setbacks in my life, and the thing that often keeps me going is my little sister (she's 10 and an awesome book nerd) and my efforts in life to be the most awesome sister/friend/mentor I can be to her.  Just when I thought I was getting lost and confused/demotivated/annoyed by her preteen-ness, I find one of your videos that puts us back on track! I wish I'd found your videos when I was a teenager (I'm 24 now), but even now, it's solidified my ambitions to become a teacher, and shown me that I can decrease worldsuckage outside of my immediate geographical location! keep up the good work, always rooting for you guys! DFTBA!

John Green You are the man. You have Successfully made me decide what I want to In my life. Crash Course made me realize that I can be a History teacher, but i don't necessarily have to teach in a traditional class room setting. It also made me realize that I love having connection with people who view history or books or even star wars the same as I. You are a boos. Don't ever stop.

I think you should have a non free nerd fighter gathering and use the money to buy a island!

Question for the next question Tuesday!

Is Willy's name related to Hank's real name, William?

Hi John/Mr. Green! Thought you might like to know that there's a thread in the Debate section of the Nerdfighter forum that addresses the (predominantly Northeastern?) stereotype of Southerners as stupid. I wonder if you--as a teacher of American history and as someone who has so much experience living in the South--have an answer/opinion on that issue. Anyway, thanks, and don't forget to be awesome.

Hi John! Are you going to be at the ALA conference in Chicago in June?
