In which Hank takes The Oatmeal's advice for what sort of content people might enjoy, which is probably always a good idea. Also, Hank addresses the recent scourge of "OMG THE WORLD IS SO BROKEN BECAUSE FIVE PEOPLE TWEETED SOMETHING STUPID!" re: Racist Hunger Games tweets and people not knowing the Titanic was real and not just a movie.

 This is how you load a dishwasher


Good Morning John, earlier this week Matthew Innman "The Oatmeal", posted a comic about how to get likes on Facebook, and one of the things that he suggested doing was to create a sing-along video explaining how to properly load a dishwasher.

 And so...       

Oh, this is how you load a dishwasher
This is how you load a dishwasher
GE, Frigidaire or Bosch or
Whirlpool or any kind of dishwasher

Well, I like to put my cutlery in the basket facing down
So my hands never touch the parts that go inside mouths
But other folks with cleaner hands put them facing the other way
So the jets of water catch them better with their spray

Oh, this is how you load a dishwasher
This is how you load a dishwasher
GE, Frigidaire or Bosch or
Whirlpool or any kind of dishwasher

Oh, please make sure to check and see if it's dishwasher-safe
Because you don't want Tupperware melting to your plates
And remember to scrape off clumps of caked-on cheese and fat
And always check to make sure that you don't wash your cat

Oh, this is how you load a dishwasher
This is how you load a dishwasher
GE, Frigidaire or Bosch or
Whirlpool or any kind of dishwasher

Oh, heavy things go on the bottom and the light things on top
To save water and energy, please fill that sucker up
And once you've got everything in its proper place
Insert the detergent, push the button with your face

The sun is gigantic, with a diameter of more than 400 times that of the moon; however, when you're standing on Earth, the sun and the moon appear to be roughly the same size. The reason for this is that the sun is 400 times more distant from the Earth then the moon, and thus appears 400 times smaller. Is this just  a coincidence? Yes.

Oh, this is how you load a dishwasher
This is how you load a dishwasher
GE, Frigidaire or Bosch or
Whirlpool or any kind of dishwasher
Oh, this is how you load a dishwasher
This is how you load a dishwasher
GE, Frigidaire or Bosch or
Whirlpool or any kind of dishwasher

 Hank's Egotistical day (2:16)


It's a very egotistical day here at Hank Green Headquarters.  I got a Hank Green shirt on and a Hank Green drawing, that I've had since like 2008 and I don't think I've ever put it on my wall.  Neil McMillian, thank you for that.  I'm wearing this today though because It's one of my favorite shirts that I ever designed, and it's on sale for 5 dollars off at DFTBA.com!

Oh, ah that's better.  Feel way less sell-outy now.

 The Titanic is real! (2:36)


Recently, a slew of teenagers didn't know that the Titanic was a real thing, they just thought it was a movie.  And yes, when I read these things I feel the same way as you, where I am just shocked.  I'm like [slaps self] what?!  It's become a thing about the American education system, but really?, really there are a lot of things that 12 year olds aren't being taught in American schools and the sinking of the Titanic is not at the top of my list of additions.  Do they know what the battle of Hastings was, or like why the Magna Carta was important?  Probably not, so my immediate question is why is it that the Titanic thing is a thing that we care about a lot?  Here's why, I think, because the sinking of the Titanic isn't history to us, it's still cultural memory.  It's just one of those things that everybody should know.  But it turns out that 20 of the one hundred million active users on Twitter did not know that.  Initially this is shocking to us because we as humans think that there is a shared cultural memory that we can count on everyone knowing. But if you think about it for a couple seconds it becomes clear how extremely unsurprising it really is.  Cause guess what, we're not all born knowing everything.  And pretending like those 20 people are idiots because they, like, lived a different life than I did, doesn't serve any purpose except to like maybe make me feel superior, make them feel horrible, and also make me, you know, have a little less faith in humanity.  All of those things are bad.

John, that's all for today, I imagine that was enough.  I'll see you on Tuesday.
