In which Hank is Grumpy and he answers questions from very nice people who deserve nicer answers but aren't going to get them because, as previously noted, I am grumpy.

First, I agree that grumpy hank is a fantastic video. I hope you aren't grumpy too often, but when you are, a question video is perfect. Second I'm astonished and appalled that Dr Lawrence Turtleman isn't as well-received as HE FREAKING SHOULD BE HE IS GREAT! Best Wishes.
Why are you behaving in such a weird / girly / completely artificial way. Dont you have any respect for yourself and your audience ? And what the f... is wrong with your hair ? Why do you have to touch yourself all the time.... Man, youtube is full of weirdos...........
Hey Hank, it’s okay to be not okay sometimes...thanks for continuing to be awesome and working to decrease world suck. Also thanks for being real and not putting on a façade in a world where there’s not a lot of authenticity left.
Hair doesn't grow forever on humans, generally speaking there is a terminal length it's why you don't have foot long arm hair and don't need to shave your arms. Hair on your head also has a terminal length it tends to be on the order of feet, but won't grow forever.
HAIR CUTE ANSWER: identify what you don't like about it (if you don't know what you don't like learn more about haircuts and ideas about headshape), make a list of possible solutions (short on the sides and back and long on top can be good for people with big foreheads and anyone), don't talk to them until it's grown out enough that they can get another haircut, try to work it into conversation so you can talk about hair in general.
All of us at some point have been Hank in this video. This is the most relatable. thanks for showing that it's okay to experience the emotions you're experiencing, even if they're not positive. You gave good answers, I think.
I actually enjoy it when you're grumpy too. I didn't know human hair was unique/messed up like that, the more you know. No matter your mood, your wit and heart shines through, so never shy from showing us your lovely grumpy self. ;) Wish I could've gone to PodCon; come back to Boston, please!
oh no, Hank. I wasn't going to give you a hard time for it because obviously you've been having a hard time, but that wasn't why you went over the time limit. you went over it for a plug. and not really for the plug, but for a weird "yeah" on a the end of the plug. now, would all of us be less happy if you hadn't made that "yeah"? yeah. but everything comes with a price. John, punish him. but be kind.
So, I was at PodCon this weekend (great event!!!) and as a joke I wore the same shirt as I did when I met you in 2011, so now I have goofy side by side comparison photos (see here https://twitter.com/accioawesome/status/939655010924642305 ).
Now, watching this video I’m pretty sure you’re wearing the same shirt you were wearing in my 2011 photo! Meaning we missed the chance for a double t-shirt joke by mere days.
I know this is not important in the slightest but it gave me a chuckle. You’re such an important person to me and I’m so glad I got to see you again and attend such a cool con. Hope I get to come again, if it happens!
I somehow never watched the Dr Turtleman video until just now but I have to say that was the greatest thing I have ever seen. Then again, taxonomy is weird and I nerd out about it more than most people.
I think about hair being weird all the time!
Also I really hope you're alright Hank. You seem super drained, and I am too. I just wish there was more we could do to help you other than to let you know your efforts are appreciated.
Can someone explain to me if something specific happened in the world recently to make Hank grumpy? (Y'know, other than the general dumpster fire that has been 2017). I've been studying for exams, so I've fallen a little behind on world news. Thanks
Biology Dude! Our hair does not grow forever! You know this. Hair grows for a time, then stops, then falls out, and the cycle begins again. Some people have longer growth periods, some have shorter. I didn't cut my hair for 20 years, and it never got longer than just past my shoulders.
