10th Anniversary Woodcut Prints: https://store.dftba.com/collections/vlogbrothers Claire Emery is going to be at NerdCon Nerdfighteria to do a couple of woodcut demos if you're going to be there! You can see more of her work here: http://emeryart.com The Many Plans to Reform Obamacare: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kLVfVPYz_Oc I did get asked some actual hard questions...and I even answered them...and then I looked back and the video was 12 minutes long... Turns out answering just one hard quesiton on Vlogbrothers is hard enough, and that's not really the sprit of the Question Tuesday. I might edit those into smaller videos and put them on Twitter, Facebook and/or Hankschannel if I have time. Basically, hard questions are hard... ---- Subscribe to our newsletter! http://nerdfighteria.com/newsletter/ And join the community at http://nerdfighteria.com http://effyeahnerdfighters.com Help transcribe videos - http://nerdfighteria.info John's twitter - http://twitter.com/johngreen John's tumblr - http://fishingboatproceeds.tumblr.com Hank's twitter - http://twitter.com/hankgreen Hank's tumblr - http://edwardspoonhands.tumblr.com

I have never seen someone get so excited about pears.

One of you (I think John) said that being a nerd means you can be unabashedly enthusiastic (paraphrasing sorry) and every time I hear that I think about this video and your enthusiasm for pears.

I may get too excited about pears... I just realized that for the first time
I have an obsession with pears. 😍 I like them nice and juicy... and female. I don't use knives because that's inhumane. I still eat the booty like grocery tho😜👌🏻

I I had to pause this one in the middle to do something and I have to say the face John is making at 2:08 is fantastic. You can interpret it many ways but I think it conveys his love of pears quite well. It also made me think of a topic for HFS, the science of the face, or facial expressions... ok the truth is I feel like the HFS guests could spend 10 or so hilarious minutes speculating about the cause of the face and discussing the muscles needed to make it!

The correct answer to 'how many cats is too many cats' is there's no such number

Two cats is good. You don't want one, because it would be lonely, so you get two so they have each other to be friends with.

To me, one cat is too many cat...s? But it depends on the cat really.
Sheila W (1 year ago)
Hank, there is no such thing as being too excited about fruit! (But this is coming from someone who invented a religion based on pineapple and chocolate, so I may not be the most objective authority on the matter.)

This is either early or late for question Tuesday, but I would like to know more about printmaking that was cool! I didn't know woodcut prints were by nature a limited run! Or is this somewhere on Art Assignment?

If your pears are sufficiently ripe, one can eat them with a sturdy spoon. If you practice, you get all the tasty juices this way, too.

The "j" in howjsay is actually a phonetics symbol for the sound in the beginning of you, yes, use, young, etc. So it's more of "how you say" than "how jay say". Just thought I'd point that out :)

Killer Hank has made his first appearance while talking about pears!

"If you wanna get a little bit less of a partisan hot take..." I was rolling my eyes just before he said this and then I started laughing. As long as he realized how biased and unsubtle it was, it's all good.

Woodcut prints are SO beautiful!!!!!!! Makes me want to be a 90s kid when I actually saw a bunch of them and fluffy baby first-memory books. And there was no internet. But then I wouldn't be watching this.

Neither the S or C is silent in scent. Sent, scent, and cent have slightly different pronunciations.

Dear Hank & John, I have a big question that's been bothering me for a while now. Hank, a few videos ago you mentioned that you have begun to censor a lot of comments which were hateful and inappropriate. While I think that's wonderful and it's about time someone did something (on any platform), here's my question: I am someone who holds a lot of opinions (on homosexuality, etc.) which are not socially acceptable. Are discussion - appropriate, respectful discussion - of those opinions allowed? I've considered myself a Nerdfighter for many years now and I guess what I'm really asking is if I am welcome as a part of this community anymore. Thanks, Anna

I like printing presses as much as you like pears, Hank. Any other printmaking nerdfighters out there?

Never eat pears. They're too squishy and they always make your chin wet.
Shellewell (2 years ago)
I think they were asking how Dave is in reference to the third Green brother, Dave Green. Admittedly he hasn't been discussed much in the community in a while.
Carmen Clemons (2 years ago)
There is a simple answer to the cats question. If the number of cats exceeds the number of human hands in the household, you have entered Cat Lady territory. (Yes, men _can_ be Cat Ladies.)

This is very disrespectful to pears 😡

Hey Hank (and John! And my fellow nerdfighters!), this is a super random question and I know that it's already over but what do ya think about the guys over on ASAPscience. I haven't seen a lot of their stuff so idk if they're nerdfighters but they're pretty cool guys who seem to want to decrease world suck and love science (like you guys).

Printmaking was one of my favorite, but time consuming, art classes I took. For one of my projects, instead of carving into metal or wood, I used a small CNC milling machine (my dad's) to carve out some super geometric designs into clear sheet acrylic. My professor went ape shit over them because he'd never had someone use that method before. I haven't thought about that class in a while. I should find those prints and photograph them.

Pears rock! There's an Anjou tree in my back yard.

Pears are worth it. They are magically delicious like a 90's lucky charms commercial.
Got real distracted by that balloon in the back, which is evidently named Dave.

" *I hate pears.* John Smith is a character I made up, but I won't know that. I'll think I am him, and he might do something stupid like *eat a pear.* In three months, I don't want to wake up and be human and taste that. And six. Now I have to talk for around about a minute without hesitation, deviation, or whatever the other thing is. It's like that panel game on Channel Four, like Rory just pointed out. However, I'm going to move on and say number seven, and talk about my other favourite band, which is the Housemartins. I don't know if anyone remembers the Housemartins, but the best gig I ever went to was at the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre in about December, it must have been 1990, and the Housemartins were playing, and it was quite simply the best gig I've ever been to. They split up quite soon afterwards; I don't know what that tells you about that particular event. I'm sitting in the TARDIS now, and I'm going to wind up soon, but not before I make a few strange noises with my mouth that will go somewhere along the lines of bingle bongle dingle dangle yikkety-doo yikkety-dah ping pong lippy tuppy too tah." -Our lord and savior, David Tennant.

PSA: you can NOT get an uber from LAX anymore :( (I tried last year) To get around this you can A. get a taxi (expensive), B. get a shuttle (potentially expensive, ymmv), or C. Get on a free shuttle to a random car rental place, and hail the uber there. :) I like option C. But Uber can drop you off at LAX for departing flights with no problems. That is all. (unless there are questions!)
