Later tonight there will be a special Friday video by Hank, but while we wait, I'd like to take a few moments of your time to talk about the joy that is FakeJohnGreen. It is, without doubt, the funniest thing in the history of Nerdfighteria and Dailybooth. Just look at these pics...
In which John, who is kind of a fiscal conservative, uses the example of Hank to show how the current American health care system disincentivizes economic growth and entrepreneurship and how a public option, even the hodgepodge kind like they have in Montana, will not bankrupt us but instead will lead to more economic efficiency, more new businesses, and new…
This is probably going to be my last picture blog here on the Ning. The Ningmaster applications are coming in, and I'll be able to find someone suitable for every position. I hope to get the picking done on Saturday. Then I can brief the new Ningmasters and get all of them up and running by the end of next week. So now, for the final time, I present you this week's…
Lauren McLaughlin's brilliant blog entry: http://bit.ly/hnXR9
In which John discusses track star Caster Semenya, sports, sexual identification, internal testes, the ambiguity inherent to life, and the arbitrary rules of a sport that cannot accommodate such… Continue
*Dramatic End-Of-Movie Music* ...Ok, not really that dramatic. It's time we passed the torch to the next generation (-Insert ST:TNG theme here-). I only wish I could've done more for the Ning and Nerdfighteria. Not gonna lie though, remembering to make this blog every Saturday night got to be a pain.
(Also, just a note to all those who are applying to be the New Ningmasters: PLEASE be prepared to be COMMITTED! It's a big responsibility, and if you have even an inkling of a thought… Continue

Some of you have noticed that it's been over six months since the Ningmasters were appointed. And you may remember that the original idea was to replace (at least some) Ningmasters every three months. But, as John pointed out in the video above, they have been "failing so epicly"2 at stuff. That's why they decided to offer me… Continue
*I am officially using this title space for my own benefit. If you are not a resident of Flagstaff, go ahead and ignore this. Flagstaff/NAU nerdfighters! After meeting a fellow nerdfighter (Hi Hilary!) in my dorm bathroom, I decided it was time we should actually meet and gather! So now I'm abusing my Ningmaster powers to get your attention! We need to meet! Go to the discussion I have made HERE…Continue
I wanted to make this video for a few reasons. First, because I wanted to try my hand at putting ridiculous things on / in my face during a video while being really strange and using #hankvideo twitter responses.
But, second, because I wanted to expand on the idea of doing stuff because it's awesome...which I don't think I really did particularly well, I think...because it's hard to explain. I'm going to try again in a blog post here, because maybe I'll be… Continue
