I love nerdfighteria to death. I want to start with that so know one murders me after reading this blog post.
I have social anxiety, I like to sit by my self at lunch and listen to my ipod, and I always feel like people are talking behind my back. Know one understands this about me and even though I have plenty of people I could call my friends they're never quite there for me. I have the luxury of saying that I have never been bullied, however I seem to be a drama…Continue
At the end of a bad thing there's a person holding a door open into a good thing. Who's your person?

As of two days ago, my house got Internet. For the first time since September 2012.
You got it, nerdy folk. I went through practically my entire junior year of high school in a public education system that assumes all students have Internet and assigns tasks as such.
I deserve a medal. A big one.
I had just gotten used to roughin' it at home, in the middle of no where, then BAM, we're back online, and all I wanna do is surf until I get keyboard calluses on my fingers…Continue

For those of you who do not know, (Which seems like a ridiculous notion considering where we are, but just go with it) Doctor Who is a British sci-fi show about an alien from the race of the Time Lords of the planet of Gallifrey. This Time Lord, goes by the name 'The Doctor', travels the galaxy in a 'spaceship' (I put in quotations because it does not only travel through space, but also time) called the T.A.R.D.I.S. (Time and Relative Dimensions in Space). He always travels…Continue
Salvete, Nerdfighteria! Sorry about the long hiatus; life kind of got in the way. And by "life," I mean "school" and "Virtual Villagers." I was going to post this last week, but my mom kept interrupting me in the middle of it and closing down my Nerdfighters page.
So, I've been doing quite a bit of thinking lately, and some of the results of that cogitation have been three interesting scientific theories. Each one involves a not-readily-seen connection between two things that actually…Continue

In which Hank answers real questions from real nerdfighters....with the help of some friends, most of whom are him. But also, Henry from Minute Physics makes an extremely brief cameo: http://www.youtube.com/minutephysics

Okay, it's my first time posting here, so forgive me for sounding so stupid. I must admit though, becoming a nerdfighter was more awesome than I expected.
So why am I here? Why did it take so freaking long for me to make this account? Well, okay. Honestly, I only found out about the vlogbrothers recently. Yeah, I know, SHAAAME. It took me a bit longer to realize that wow, okay, these guys are definitely worth the subscribe and the stalking that comes with a new fandom. And I found…Continue
Perfectionism is an insidious part of the academic culture. I've written a post on how we might start to change that. You can find the post here at my blog:
The post will be of interest to undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty alike.

So, I read Speaker for the Dead last night. And I have nobody to talk to about it. Haven't met anyone here like that.
Oh, by the way, I've only read Ender's Game and Speaker for the Dead. None of the other books. Yet. Therefore, I will not address any questions or doubts I have concerning why this or that happened or did not get resolved or whatever. or why it was the Little Doctor and not the bigger Doctor…Continue

(Was going through some personal stuff, so I thought I'd write something.
Didn't think much about the title. If anyone has any suggestions, I'd be glad to hear them)
"Cassiopeia," George said with a sigh, as if answering my little question took a great deal of effort, "Cassiopeia is my favorite constellation."
I looked up at the stars. They were barely visible. Light pollution, and all that.

Or you know, any other people that want to help us get a better PM next time. A bunch of my comedian friends run a website called Shit Harper Did (http://www.shd.ca/) and they need our help. Basically it just shares facts about the changes our government has quietly made that have been hurting us Economically, Ecologically and Sociologically. Basically the Harper government has raised the suck in Canada on all fronts. SHD has made a commercial…Continue

I am personally very amused at the moment. On Pottermore, I have posted a comment yesterday on one of the chapters saying:
"I don't understand why people just go from chapter to chapter just collecting things instead of enjoying the experience at the same time."
Someone had the greatest idea to report my comment! It wasn' even offensive! I was just stating a fact!
Now, personally, I can't help but wonder why people do…Continue
