Good morning John!

So I have good news, and I have bad news. I actually have lots of good news and a little bit of bad news. And the first bit of good news is that I did the bad news in my last video. So if you want bad news, go watch that video.

On to more good news; George Watsky, I accept your challenge that wasn't intended to be a challenge.

Gotta be the one to bite the bullet
I'm sinner but I bet I coulda been a better man
I wanna be zen, but I go sipping on some medicine instead of meditating but I get when I can
I don't wanna wind up in the gutter with a bottle of malt-liquor, bitter cause I never got a call
Telling me
That it's all
Figured out
I'm sick of doubt
But I'm looking at the wall
Part of me was hoping to be caught up in good in the God in me
But I got a lobotomy gotta get that I oughtta geta-

DANG IT!I fail your challenge.

If you don't know what I'm talking about, you should click.

More good news: if you would, please go to this website I know of called and in type i s space h. I'm frickin' awesome.
And then if you type in "Is hank green space" you get a ton of amazing things that people are wondering whether I am, including if I'm gay unfortunately, that one some how slipped in.

But people are also curious if I'm Batman, and so I figure I'll take these off and I'll put this on... Uh, so what do you think? Batman? No, not really? You're not seeing it?

Maybe I should talk like this.

More good news! This map, shown here, is an extremely detailed view of the twelve colonies of Battlestar Galactica and how they can all exist within one star system. It's possible, because it is a quaternary star system; two binary star systems orbiting each other. Fascinating!

Aah, the mysteries that our galaxy must contain! I should make a video about the James Webb Space Telescope which is going to help us know more. And it's awesome, and amazing.

Though this obvious desire at the beginning of Battlestar Galactica for it to be hard science fiction really makes me feel even more disappointed by the stupid ending to that series! Jeez!

I have to go to the doctor now, so lets talk about this at the, at the doctor's office.

So science fiction and fantasy take up the same space in the book store and they take up the same space on my bookshelf. So I do agree that they have many things in common, but I have a very specific rule when it comes to science fiction and fantasy. If you, as a writer, are introducing me to a fantasy world then you are free to define that world in whatever way that you choose and to solve internal conflict in whatever way you see fit. But if you're introducing me to a science fiction story, where the reality of the book is based on the reality of reality, you cannot, and this is a law, you cannot solve the internal conflict with made up, glow-y holes in the ground like they did in Lost. In short, fantasy can contain science fiction, science fiction cannot contain fantasy.

It's boring in here.

More good news!

Apriso, which is a manageable facsimile of Asacol, the drug that I need to take that costs six hundred dollars now, just sent me this card in the mail that says I pay no more than twenty five dollars for my Apriso except unless I have to pay more than seventy five dollars which I do because it's like two hundred dollars so this is a lie! But it's still less than six hundred dollars. Why does it say "pay no more than twenty five dollars" when I still have to pay, like, one hundred and fifty. That's more than twenty five dollars. That is a bugger of an asterisk right there.

More good news; today we are officially launching Vidcon, and some of you will find that laughable because people found our website a long time ago. But it is officially online It is in Los Angeles at the same hotel that it was at last year, the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza. July twenty eighth, a Thursday, is going to be an industry specific day, and then the twenty ninth and thirtieth, Friday and Saturday, are gonna be frickin amazing fun party adventure community times. Frickin amazing fun party adventure community times, what more could you ask for?

And to register for the conference and to find all the information that you need go to

Okay now the final piece of good news is for the people who follow me on twitter and are very curious about the two truths and a lie that I did yesterday that I did not inform them which one the lie was.

So, two truths and a lie.

One: I just found my first gray hair.

Two: I used to play the trombone in high school.

Or Three: I'm a closet Alan Jackson fan.

John, I will see you tomorrow.
