We’re all Scared

by on November 16, 2012

In which Hank discusses why life is so terrifying, and why that's OK.

Oh, and also, we're playing Carnegie Hall: http://www.carnegiehall.org/Calendar/2013/1/15/0700/PM/John-and-Hank-Green-An-Evening-of-Awesome/

So Charlie made this video
Which prompted these people to make these videos:
Michael Aranda http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IPsVQHu5lA4
Myles http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y0VYcJGcz3Y
Mickeleh http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W6FyaoUAD0U
Wheezy http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wi04oCcCICQ

Which prompted me to make this video

And then the comments on that video made me want to make the video above.

This is especially weird because this is very similar to a video I made on HanksChannel, though spruced up for Vlogbrothers. But the real point I want to make is that making things is terrifying, and making our selves is the most terrifying creation of all, and we have to do it every single time we meet new people, which is why that's scary. But it's OK for it to be scary, because that's how you know something's worthwhile.

Also, the other point is...we're all scared. I proved it...

This is so deep it’s not funny. It’s so deep I feel giddy.
Kierkegaard’s saying, “It’s not that the way is difficult. Difficult IS the way,” was maybe not quite the right translation. “Difficult” is what we learn to do in school.
And then you use a part of yourself to handle hemi-demi-semi-brilliantly some piece of business that others consider difficult. And you get paid for it. And that’s not difficult. It’s not scary. The thing that you’d really, really like to be good at, you’re not. What’s that line, “not show anybody”?
This video needs to be watched twice. If it strikes you that way, at any rate. If it does, then, – well fuck me you’ve got to physically do something about – before the next sunset.
Even if it’s just reaching out to a friend.

Past nations were drsyeoted because of their crimes against humanity. Israel cannot get away with this. Its contrary to the laws of nature. They are bringing their own destruction and they do not realize it.
