I really don't get why people used to say YOLO, I mean seriously.... You are just stating that death will occur and then there is nothing. I believe that you live in every moment you seize and every risk you take. You only live as many times as you exceed your own standards. Sure, this acronym is really long, but it's way more accurate than YOLO. …Continue
Just a quick call out to any would be or actual Vloggers out there in Nerdfighteria! The Ning DFTVA colab has been going for about four weeks now and we are still looking for more people to submit Vlogs to the project. We currently have 15 people on the roster and are looking to include far more than that. So if you are interested in taking part in a Nerdfighter Youtube project drop a message to me, comment here or give the channel a message!
The (still un-named) Colab is going strong as well delve into our third week of posters. We have had videos from Nerdfighters in Canada, England, the USA and soon to be Wales and Scotland too! I am finding the…Continue

I bring you greetings from the land of Dave! That's right, I renamed England after myself, what's the problem? :D.
Today Elliott and I are proud to launch the start of our Vlogging Project! Granted we do not have a name for it yet, but we are hoping you guys will have some ideas! In this project three Nerdfighters a week will post vlogs over on the Nfinfo channel about all things Nerdfighters and beyond! This is in an effort to get the community talking! We plan on having as…Continue
"In which John asks Ansel Elgort (who plays Augustus Waters) and Mike Birbiglia (who plays Patrick) some real questions from real nerdfighters while on the set of The Fault in Our Stars movie. Also: Enjoy the cutest how-I-found-out-I-got-the-part story ever from Ansel."

"John had a special video planned for today, but then the government shut down so we decided to switch so I could stay up until 3 am figuring out wtf is up with the shutdown and make a video about it. If you want to learn more about gerrymandering check out this video: …Continue
In this vidoe Hank discusses... ah forget it, COPY AND PASTE!
"There are only a few topics that seem less obvious but more hotly debated than climate change. It's here, it's happening, it's caused by humanity, and it is one of the largest problems humanity will ever face. But I believe we will face it, and we'll face it with the desperate…Continue

As per the norm, despite watching this video twice, I think John manages to describe the video better than I could. So at the risk of looking lazy I have stolen the video description. Enjoy!
"In which John compares the Drake song "Started from the Bottom (Now We Here)" with Benjamin Franklin's Autobiography, two American dream…Continue
Who better than Hank himself to explain what his video is about:
"The map, as an innovation, is extremely important. Simply constructing a useful representation of our world onto a piece of paper (or clay or vellum or whatever) vastly increased the capabilities of humankind. But we continue to add and alter this medium, in ways that allow for greater…Continue

It's been far too long since I made a blog post and I do apolgize about that. I won't go into detail as to why because you know what? We have far more important business to talk about and that is PROJECT FOR AWESOME! (Yes, I totally wrote that in all caps to bring the attention to those words. I also didn't prepare this post so let's see how this goes.)
Anyways, it's that time of year again people! It's that time in…Continue
Today, a three year old high school philosophy club and several years old book club that I ran last year as a senior, with a couple dozen members total, has lost administration support for content and a faculty sponsor.
Really? Does education really have to go that far? I understand if the teacher sponsor is busy and needs to step out because of a more important reason, but administration not looking for another faculty sponsor and disappointing a diversity of STUDENTS that all love…Continue

Now Over Me.
Written By Ben Paulukiewicz [Jin-Ja]
So I stood there, my ipod in my ears, my feet following the person in front, inside the corridors of the school, like one big game of follow the leader.
At my school, there were no uniforms, so I wore jeans, canvas shoes, a tee shirt and my favourite cotton dark cream jacket.
My friends thought I was Nathan Drake from the Uncharted Series.
I didn’t see it. The jeans I wore were…
One thing I have noticed when it comes to Nerdfighters is that, as a community we are well connected to one another. Problem is that the site itself is the main way people stay in contact. So when something happens for example the Ning deciding they want to work on maintenance when it is most inconvenient for the rest of us, that contact shuts down. I received around about 43 e-mail's asking about what happened to the site. It was frustrating to have to e-mail everybody back with the…Continue
Yes this sounds lame, I realize that... But I tell you it is not.
Battle Pirates is this awesome facebook RTS (real time strategy) game where you do lots of awesome things.
I first started playing in October and have become overly addicted to the strange world of Battle Pirates. There is a formula of how to play and there are methods to everyone's madness. You build ships and weaponry all whilst trying to gather resources and protect them. You have armors and walls and…Continue
HELLO NERDFIGHTERIA (TERIA, TERIA, TERIA...)
You are an extremely large amount of people. I am shocked by your sheer area and volume.
There is an odd beeping sound coming from my computer and I'm not sure from whence it is coming. I'm worried.
You people seem totally awesome... which would make sense because the goal of nerdfighters is to increase awesome, while in doing so decreasing world suck.
I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR YOU MY WHOLE LIFE AND HAVE ONLY…Continue

Well I have to say, after the first couple days of being a nerdfighter, it's great, no, AWESOME!
Had no idea what to do at first, but now i'm about to start a collab.vlog with six other (sure to be AWESOME) girls, had an itense convo (about gays, KKK and riots in London...) and when I left, I thought I shouldn't have bothered saying goodbye. But the amount of people who said good bye (okay 6) really made feel special and welcome!
And this is only day 2! I…Continue

Guess this is the bit where I try to introduce myself and my interest.... Well that already turned out to be a Failure- major emphasis on the capital F by the way, as I have managed to digress in the first 30 seconds (the time in which it has taken me to write this entire paragraph and the time is going up as I reach for the close brackets).
Well as you already know-you should know anyway's... My name is Hogla- Pronounced Ogla (silent H but nobody ever. Ever. EVER. EVER!!!!!!! Calls…Continue
