So I adopted you. I can answer almost any question you have about this site or Nerdfighters or John and Hank. I'm supposed to encourage you to start a discussion; it can be anything you want at all. I would recommend you doing something you're really passionate about. Also, we can just talk and stuff about whatever. I hope you enjoy your time here.
