 (00:00) to (02:00)

Rhett: First we feel,...

Link: ...then we squeal.

Hank: Let's talk about that! 

(GMM Intro)

R: Good Mythical Morning!! 

L: Ladies and gentlemen, Mythical Beasts. Please welcome to the show, coming all the way from Nerdfighteria... the Hank half of the the Vlogbrothers! It's Hank Green! 

H: Thank you, guys for having me! I didn't know we were going to be yelling so much in the beginning. 

R: Yeah! We yell a lot! Hey, welcome to the show, man! 

L: We're giving like double Nerdfighteria... things.   (Hank high-fives them both)

R: Oh, you know what, (H: This... this feels dangerous.) you have hands! 

H: I do. I do. I was born with them. They're the ones I've had. I've had them for the whole time. (Link slaps Hank's hand on the table)

R: It is very convenient today. Because you're going to be using the hands to feel some things.  All things from the natural world. You know a thing or two about the natural world. 

H: I do. I know about feeling. And I know I've met the Earth. We have a relationship. (L: You've touched) I've touched the Earth?

R&L: Yeah? Alright. 

R: Let's touch some other things. It's time to play (Show game screen) "Feel and Squeal: Nature Edition." (cut screen) OK, how this is gonna work is...

L: We're gonna all sniff the box. That's how this works.

R: That's step one. Step Two is: You guys are gonna put something that I cannot see into this box. And I am going to then feel it. And then I'm going to squeal the answer as to what I think it is. If I get it without any hints. (Hank and Link shake his hands) Hey Link. Hey Hank. I get two points. If I require a hint, there's a hint card right here that I cannot read, that you will turn over and give me the hint. I get one point. If I don't get it with the hint, I get no points. 

L: You lose! 

R&L: And then, we rotate! 

L: Hey, hey! Let's do this!

R&L: Round 1! 

L: OK, Rhett. You can turn around. And uh...

R: Wait, woah oh..

(Hank and Link laugh) 

R: It feels meaty. Oh it, whoa... what is..

H: What did you think you put your finger in just now?

R: Oh, that feels like... a lip. 

L: I don't want to give you any hints, but I do think you need to explore thoroughly in order to be able to identify what it is.

H: I think, I think a more thorough exploration would be advantageous.

R: Well, there's a knob.

 (02:00) to (04:00)

R: There's a knob. 


H: Get deeper. Just go deeper in there I think you'll find something, worth finding. 

R: Oh. Woah. Gosh. It has an opening!

*laughter from Hank and Crew*

R: Can I just rip it? 

H: Aah

L: Go back further. 

R: That got a visceral reaction when I said can I rip it. 

H: Well I'm just worried about the splash zone. 

R: Hold On. I can smell it too. 

*more laughter*

R: It's definitely from an animal. Or a human.

L: A big human. 

R: I know that it is from an animal. What is it? It feels like just a big hunk of meat.

H: Right. So-

R: From a bird.


R: It feels like bird flesh.

L: You're on the right track.

H: Can you tell like, the flesh by feel? Like the, of an animal?

R: Yeah, yeah. I touch lots of birds.


H and L: Alright...

R: But-

L: Have you formulated a guess?

R: I wanna get the hint so that I at least have a chance of getting a point.

H: Okay. "It wants what it wants, and it wants grass."

R: Hmm, turkeys don't eat grass, do they?

L: That's a good hint. That's a two-parter hint, I'll tell ya right now.

H: Well I wouldn'ta told him that, 'cause I'm all about winning.


R: It's a freaking cow heart.

H: It is!


R: The heart wants what the heart wants-

L: Here put your hands down.

R:-and the cow eats grass.

H: That's right.

R: Ugh, you jerks.

R&L: Round 2: Octopus Tentacles. (3:15)

H: Okay. I have a, oh you can turn around.

R: Yeah. Go for it Link.

L: Ok.

H: I'm pretty sure I know what that is.

R: Yeah, I do.

L: Is it alive? Cuz if it is-

H: It's not

L: -I ain't puttin' my hands in there.

H: No it is not alive.

L: Okay.

H: Just go on down, down, down.

R: Yup you're very close.

L: It's kinda nerve wracking.

H: Can you smell it yet?

R: M'kay that's the plate part and then there's yeah.

L: Oo, it's cold, it's mushy, ew there's pieces.

H: Uh huh.

L: There's a whole bunch of pieces.

H: Pick 'em on up.

R: It's really juicy.

H and R: Eww

R: Come on! Why? Why do you have to do that?

H: Nobody liked that.

R: That tells you nothing!

L: Now that splat is really, that's a tell-tale sign there.

R: Of what?

L: It's splattish. It feels like flesh chunks.

H: Uh huh.

L: Gosh!

R: You're on the right track Link.

L: Ooh.





 (04:00) to (06:00)

L: What is that?

*laughter off screen*

L: It's a suction cup. Look at that.

R: Now it feels like you gotta make a choice.

L: It has suction, so it's either an octopus or a, I don't know what my other suction choice is.

H: You're not aware of another suction bearing ocean animal?

R: You should stop and think about it just for a second.

H: Really? You're just like blanking on the other suctiony ocean animal?

L: I really am.

H: Sometimes they're giant.

L: Ooh, you're giving me a hint that's not this hint?

H: Oh, yeah.

L: Alright if it's not the octopus, give me the hint. Because it's probably not gonna help me.

R: What other animal has the suction, man?

L: Calamari?

H: Right, yes, what is that made out of?

L: Calamari!


R: Oh gosh. You don't know what calamari is?

L: I thought calamari was its own animal.

*Rhett and Hank laugh*

L: Ummm.

H: So..



H: He got there!

L: Is it a squid?

H: No.

L: What? It's not a squid?

H: No.

R+L: It's an octopus.

L: Dangit!


R: We went calamari on him!

R+L: Round Three! Peeled Mango 

R: Turn around.

L: Alright, turn around.

H: Oh...

R: Turn around and feel.

H: You guys look confused.


R: Yeah.

L: Oh, be careful. I would go in from the back.

R: Go in from the back *laughs*


H: Like this?

R+L: Yeah.

R: Palms up, palms up.

H: Is it alive?

R: I think you wanna present the back of your hand to it first.

H: Are you sure it's not just some piece of fruit?

R: Are you a fruit feeler?

H: I feel like there may be some...


R: It's so interesting to watch someone touch something that they can't see, when you can see. I never thought I would experience this.

H: Well it feels like it's been cut.

L: Mhmm.

H: Like it was skinned or peeled.

L: Yup, you're on the right track.

H: Oh man, I wanna take my hands out so bad and smell my fingers.


R: Don't do that.

H: Ok.

L: Oh no! Go all the way.

H: Am I gonna hurt you or anyone if I push my fingers real deep into this?

*Rhett laughs*

L: Just do it. Do whatever feels right.

H: I mean it just feels like a peach.

L: But does it?

R: You ever done that to a peach?

H: It's some kind of pitted fruit. There's a pit. Well there are so many different pitted fruits, that I'm gonna have you read me the hint.

L: I'll read the hint.

R: Ok. 

L: Your hint is, "Skinless paradise." 

R: Whoa. 

L: Never heard those two words together.




 (06:00) to (08:00)

(All three laugh)

R: Sounds like a vacation.

H: Oh, is it a mango?

R: Yes.

L: Final answer? Yes.

(All three laugh)

L: Oh you got it! So one point for Hank.

R&L: Round 4!

H: Alright Rhett, umm.

L: Ok, Rhett

H: We gonna-We're gonna request that you be gentle.

L: Turn around, brother.

R: Be gentle?

H: Be gentle.

L: Yeah, come on.

R: (swoop sound)(Laughs)

H: Nope, be gentle. Not funny gentle, actual gentle.

R: Nothing.

H: No? Nothing? You haven't felt anything yet?

*laughter off screen*

H: What was that?

R: Is it hanging?

(everyone laughs but Rhett)

L: Yeah. Give it a nice sweeping motion.

R: Is it a freaking animal? Is it a freaking animal?!

(everyone except Rhett starts laughing again)

L: Give it like a gathering-

R: It is alive?! Its alive, isn't it?!(groans)

L: It's hard to tell(H: Little nice, little nice.), actually.

R: You idiots.

(Hank, Link, and crew laugh)

(Link laughs his iconic crazy laugh)

R: There's a freaking plate on the front. 

L: Just give it a nice gathering motion.

R: No!

H: What are you so afraid of?

R: Lots of things.

(crew laugh)

R: Is it a freaking tarantula?

H: No.

(Link laughs)

H: No, no, no.

R: It felt really small.

L: Well, that's cause you only felt one.

(Hank laughs)

L: Don't poke.

H; No, be nice.

R: If I kill it, are people gonna be mad?

L & H: Yeah.

L: Rhett, Rhett, listen to me. Yeah.

(Rhett squeals)

(Crew laughs)

L: Wait, what happened?

H: Did he get sniffed?

L: Did he get bit, man? Come on, get your hands in there, McLaughlin!

H: Did you even-you just got sniffed.

R: Sniffed...?

H: You gotta be real careful, these are nice, gentle creatures.

R: Creatures?

H: Well you knew that they were alive.

L: Give them a nice gathering motion again, that was working.

(Link and crew laugh)

L: Lower, they can't fly. Go for it, Rhett.

R: No... Don't bite me(x5) duh boo...

L: Uh, now pick that up.

R: Do they want me to pick 'em?

L: Yes.

H: Yeah, they li-they won't mind. We put them in there somehow, right?

R: They want me. They want me to touch them.

L: Yup. Ok, bring them together, bring them together, bring them together, and your palms together-faster, faster, there you go, now you got one.


 (08:00) to (10:00)

R: B-b-b-b-blleuh!

(Everyone but Rhett laughs)

L: Alright, that's a good technique man, 'obubububu!'

H: You've done real well, what do you think it is? You touched it a little bit.

L: Do that again.

R: I want to get it without a hint!

L: Put your palms together.

R: Uhhhhhh.

L: There you go, pick it up. You don't have to be that gentle.

R: He left.

(Hank laughs)

L: Alright, he's back in there now, now close.

R: It's a mouse(L: Come on), it's a-it's a mouse, it's a mouse.

H: Yeah that's a good guess, now come see if you were right.

R: Look at the cutie's(H:Yes.)

L: Now will you grab one?

R: Hold on, look how many turds they made.

(Everyone laughs)

L: Yeah, you were grabbing those turds too man.

H: Nope-no problem grabbing the turds.

R&L: Round 5!

R: Oh, gay Link!

H: We're ready.

R: Turn around! Feel like you've never felt before.(Rhett laughs)

H: I-uh-I-uh-just go on in.

R: We don't have time for this.

H: You gotta get in there man, you're not gonna figure out what this is.

L: What? Ooh, it's hairy.

H: Is it?

L: Yeah, there's like straw coming out of it back here.

R: Yeah.

L: What is this?

R: You have to break through the surface, you're not gonna learn anything. (H: Yeah, yeah.)You gotta get in there and figure out what the heck-

L: Okay, okay, so here's a big piece of something, it's like soil.

(Crew giggles)

H: Uh huh.

L: Let me break it up a little bit. Oh no.

R: Why don't you squeeze it like you did the octopus? See what kind of juice is coming out.

L: No juice.

(Hank and crew laugh)

L: It's pretty dry.

H: Yeah.

L: But very crumb-uh.

H: What?

L: This is, this is, uh, turds.

(Rhett and crew laugh)

R: (imitating Link)This is umm, this is uh, turds.'

H: You only got halfway there.

R: Be more specific, brother. 

L: I have to guess the type of animal that excreted this?

H: It's poop.

R: I will give you one point for poop, okay?

L: Yes, I mean this is big, this is a big animal. Is this one session?

H: I would say that that is a portion of one session.

L: I think this is elephant dung.

H: That would be remarkable if you think your team is capable of acquiring elephant poo.

(Everyone laughs)

L: Yeah, what kind of big crap can you guys get? I'm guessing horse crap.

H: Correct.

R: You're right, Link.

L: You guys are so nasty!

R&L: Round 6!

 (10:00) to (12:00)

R: OK, Hank.

H: Alright, well, I want to, first of all, thank you for giving me really less gross ones than you've given yourselves.

L: [Laughing]

R: So, so, far.

H: I'm gonna check, no, no Plexiglas, so nothing's moving around.

L: [Laughing]

H: We have... it's a bowl.

L: Yeah, maybe should, that's that

H: Oh, is it like, just like partially firmed up jello? Oh, or is it just, oh.

L: What, what? Oh what?

H: Oh, what is, wait what is happening?

R: [laughing]

H: Oh, I think I know what this is. It's some kind of non-Newtonian fluid.

L: Non-Newtonian fluid.

H: Yeah

L: What do you mean by that?

H: I mean it does not behave in the ways predicted by Isaac Newton.

L: OK, oh, of course.

H: So, as you apply more pressure, it gets harder

R: Viscosity changes

H: Yeah, viscosity changes. Is this, I think it's sometimes referred to as Oobleck, uh, and it is, uh, it's cornstarch and water.

L: Oh, Hank!

R: Yeah, Yes!

L: Too smart for our game! Dang.

R: Yeah. I knew you were going to get that one!

L: I'm, I'm-a pull it out of here

H: Is that a liquid or a gel? You'd be like, "I don't know, ask Isaac Newton."

R: [Laughing]

L: You can't even get all this stuff up.

[bowl thuds]

R: Oh.

H: Yeah, and then it turns-and then like

L: It turns into nothing.

H: Yeah.

L: Non-Newtonian.

R: Ok, well let's move on to the lightning round.

R: Ok, here's how this is gonna work. Items are gonna come in here, we're gonna turn around and bring our hands up so that we don't see them-or feel them. And then, there'll be a 'go'. We'll have a chance to feel them, and then squeal the answer, first person to get the correct answer, as many guesses as you want, wins that round. Two points for each correct answer and we go through a number of items. Ok.

Crew-member: Ok guys, turn around.

H & L: Alright.

[plate clunk]

Crew-member: Aaand go.

*hands movement*

H: Oh, it's tofu.

L: Oh!

Crew-member: Hank!

R: Oh! Wow!

R: You're a ge-how did you what?

L: You slammed it, man!

Crew-member: Aaand go.

H: Ow.

R: Coconut. Orange.

H: Ow. Ow, oh! It's a baguette.

L: Seashell! Seashell.

Crew-member: Hank!

H: [wheezy laugh]

L: That's bread?

Crew-member: Ok, aaand-that, Link, Link, Link! Nope! Put it back. Put it back.

[bowl slides around]

R: Come on, what?


 (12:00) to (14:00)

H: Oh.

L: What? Can you guys feel it? Uh, rice? 

R: Hold on, where is it?

L: Uh, sand?

R: Sand!

H: Salt! Sugar!

L: Um, grain?

R: Salt! Sugar!

H: Why you hiding over there?

L: I don't know, it's in the corner, it wants to go.

H: What is it?

R: You can't even win at this point, man.

H: Is it cinnamon? Is it like taco seasoning? Cinnamon and sugar?

L: Seeds!

H: Chia seeds.

Crew-member: Hank! [Laughing]

L: I get half of that.

H: California!

Crew-member: And go!

[hand movement]

R: Newspaper

H: Uh-seaweed!

L: Uhh-

Crew-member: Hank!

L: Uhh-seaweed

[Hank laughing]

L:Dang it, Hank. [Clapping] Alright Hank. Congratulations you killed us, man. You know what you win extra large feelers. Put your hands out. 

H: Alright. 

L: Rhett you put one on. I'll put one on.

H: Wait what am I doing? Oh- on my hands.

R: [Laughs] On your hands.

L: Congratulations you get extra large feelers!

H: Whooo!!!!

L: Thanks for liking, commenting and subscribing. Say 'you know what time it is'.

H: You know what time it is.

: Hi, I'm Sadie from Scotland and Glasgow and it is time to spin the Wheel of Mythicallity.

R: But first, the curious case of Rhett McLaughlin!

L: [in old man voice] Once upon a time, there was a curious, curious Rhett McLaughlin. He lived...

R: [voice masked] I'm getting younger?

L: Oh

R: And smaller?

H: Is it, well, Benjamin Button-ing?

R: But older at the same time.

L: He lived where?

R: I need to get in the field.

H: Hi.

L: With a man with weird--

R: Touch me with your big hands.

H: On a big--

*Link laughs*

R: It makes me look so much littler.

H: A big house on a little hill--

R: Oh, I'm dying now.

H: On the land of Ireland.

R: But I'm a baby. That feels so good, as I'm dying.

H: Do you like this?

L: The old baby dying.

H: Willie, willie, willie willie willie.

L: I mean, I wore women's jeans for, there was a (?) before the men's jeans got tight enough to my liking.

R: He did, he wore women's jeans for at least 3 years. Go back to the videos and you'll notice.
