Individuals shared them, the collective intelligence of Reddit sorted and vetted them, all I did was make a video putting them all in one place. The 25 Top Life Pro Tips!
In which my 3-year-old son Henry and I cook macaroni and cheese, boiled asparagus, communist celery, blueberries, and sweet potato fries for dinner while Sarah is out of town. Hilarity ensues.

In which Hank (with the help of Irina, Amy, Florencia, Daniel, David, James, and Kensaku) translates songs that have spawned dance crazes in America, but I primarily not in English.
I learned a lot more about these songs than I was able to fit in this video, I apologize for not being able to share more. Maybe I'll put some extra stuff on hankschannel.

In which Hank and John and Katherine walk around Dublin and Hank thinks about how we are all but a part of a magnificent continuum that stretches back around four billion years...depending on how you think about it.
Dublin was beautiful and exciting and careful and thoughtful and I really wish I could have spent more time there. It was pretty hard to choose what…Continue

In which Hank talks about friends, why they're important, and how we make them. TL;DR, don't take advantage of good friends, they are extremely important and very rare.
