Ever thought of how cool it would be control Mother Nature? Stop its destructive force? Could we stop a tornado with micro waves? Harness the winds of a tornado? Suck all of the water out of a hurricane? Turn off a storm?
Then if you're in the states, you should try checking out a show called Hacking the Planet on the Weather Channel. It explores all the crazy ideas to control the weather, stop…Continue

I call upon the power of nerdfighteria. Green brothers hear my prayer. The channel of awesome called nurdrage is close to its end. If we do nothing it will die.

I met Megan Whitmer on twitter a short time ago and we hit it off over her love of John's novels. She was an aspiring YA novelist and shared my passion for John's works (her favorite is Katherine's). She is a great person, and long story short, she found out yesterday her book is getting published. John, as you know, there is no more exciting news (other than "honey I'm pregnant) than finding out you got a book deal. She announced her news via a video that is saturated with joy and will…Continue
Wow, what a sweet story. Slightly reminiscent of Dear Enemy but unique in and of it's own right. For a novella to bring about that much change in fate and emotion in so few pages, it deserves to be applauded. I was quite glad.
Solena, a young orphaned girl raised by the High Prophet of her people, is known for having a generous heart along with her…

Yay Project for Awesome! This is my first time participating as a vlogger, and if you could take the time to watch, I'd really appreciate it. Being in music programs has shaped much of my life, which is why for this year's video, I talk about VH1's Save the Music Foundation.

Anyone who loves physical books really needs to take a look at Better World Books!
As a general rule, any book you purchase though BWB, one book gets donated to children who cannot otherwise obtain books. A portion of each book you purchase goes toward funding literacy programs around the world(you can even see the specific organizations which will receive your money next to each book in your cart)! But what is so great about right now?
Every book you buy,…Continue

so this is going to be short I think it would be quite productive of us as a community to gather educational videos and what not and collect them all into a virtual library that is sorted by subject and in order you should watch them, this would include channels like Crash course, some Vsauce, minutephysics, and more ! I think this would be a great idea because if something like this was available to everyone we could do things like help home schooled kids and their parents or help the…Continue

As you guys probably know, domestic abuse is a huge problem that is often ignored, as it's viewed as quite taboo, and something people don't really want to think about. However it's something that really gets me, so a group of teens and I from The Challenge decided to hold a sponsored 'Deadly Stroll For Undead Violence' to raise awareness and funding for the charity SDASPS (…Continue

(if you've read the book before, I encourage you to try reading it again with us!)

I decided I should share a poem with my fellow nerdfighters. I hope you all like it, to those who see it. I love writing poetry and this one goes out to all the nerdfighters:
They play together in their own little tune.
Leaving me behind, way too soon.
They call out to one another.
Leaving me behind, like the others.
A person unknown,
Someone who is always…Continue
