In which Hank calls random strangers in his town and tells them encouranging and true facts about our world.
I couldn't fit all of them in, and I had to cut a few of them down (and maybe re-film a couple because they took so embarrassingly long for me to say) but I've included the script I used which has all of the positive facts I…
Remember that time in February when I said we needed new Ningmasters and stuff? Yeah, that didn't happen. :Þ Now I know that's not entirely my fault; the car did cut that corner short thereby momentarily driving on the left side of the road, right when I was approaching from the other side, but while it took some time to catch upon everything that I missed in the month I spent in hospital, I've been back for quite a bit already. And while I… Continue

In which John Green discusses his virulent hatred for pennies and nickels, two utterly irrelevant coins that inexplicably remain money in the United States of America.

In which Hank shows you his Saturday, which turned out to be a very busy day filled with friends, babies, water slides, juggling, Doritos, eggs, singing, dogs, and, yeah, other stuff. All because I wanted to be a part of the…
VidCon is obviously a giant success, It's a shame I couldn't be there but, as it so often does, life happened. And even though I can't be there, I'm enjoying watching the livestream and hearing/reading/seeing amazing stories from people who are there.
But beside having organised a very successful conference, Hank and John have also had some personal achievements:
A couple of hours ago,the Vlogbrothers entered the Top 100 Most Subscribed channels of All Time! The…
In which John discusses the inevitability of loss but the moral necessity of choosing which games to care about, and then talks a little about the World Cup finals in soccer (or football, depending on your…
