Sexual Abuse, Consent, and Culture


If you haven't heard, there have been some really troubling stories about manipulative and even possibly abusive relationships between online creators and their fans.

While that situation certainly spurred me to make this video, I also think a video like this is long overdo. We're excited to be facing these problems head-on, because the only way out is…

Hi! Remember me? I'm Senior Executive Ningmaster Tom. I'm supposed to be running this site. :D

In reality, I've been missing in action for a long time. I have hardly done anything ning-related in months, apart from occasionally banning a spammer, or responding to an e-mail. (And changing the banner. :þ)

But I should've been doing so. much. more. :|

(Including, but not limited to, essential tasks like…

It's that time of year again...

Well, that time that reoccurs every once in a while, not at all regularly, but usually at least once a year.


Anyway,  it's been —once again— way too long since we've had a change of staff, and we're about to change that.

It'll be like previous times; you write an application, we will pick candidates that seem like good candidates to us.

You'll then be offered a position for a number of months, at which point we'll probably…

NASA: Increasing Awesome



In which Hank talks about the 0.45% of the federal budget devoted to space education, and what NASA is doing with that money. 

Just an aside, my friends often say that we shouldn't be spending money on space when we have so many problems here on Earth. And I understand that argument. But I think that mentality is flawed. We can't wait until…

In which John takes you to Amsterdam to discuss the tulip mania that overtook the Netherlands in the 17th century, culminating with the famed flower bubble of 1636 and 1637, the original irrational exuberance. (Or was it irrational?)

Humpy Hank

In which animations of Hank humping an astonishing variety of people and animals (and himself) are collected into a single music video for your enjoyment and Hank's embarrassment.

Let this be a lesson, friends: Never put video of yourself humping on the Internet or the Internet will make you pay.

Ice Cream Changes

Slipknot to Ritchie Valenz, for some reason the I vi IV V chord progression just sounds amazing. I don't know why certain combinations of tones sound nice to us, nor why progressing through those tone combinations in certain ways are universally pleasant, but I am glad of it.

This video has no cuts, which was a moonpasta challenge that I silently…

Since then, the orphanage has turned into a hostel for both children without parents and those from poor families. No children…
