Self Portraits on Drugs

After experiencing drastic changes in my environment, I looked for other experiences that might profoundly affect my perception of the self. So I devised another experiment where everyday I took a different drug and drew myself under the influence. Within weeks I became lethargic and suffered mild brain damage. I am still conducting this experiment but over greater lapses of time. I only take drugs that are given to me.

SciShow: The Science of the Cinnamon Challenge

Hank explains the science behind the "cinnamon challenge," and reveals why it is nearly impossible to complete.

Do not attempt the cinnamon challenge! Instead, why not just watch some videos of the thousands of YouTubers failing at it! That's what we at SciShow call doing it "the Smart Way."

CrashCourse Biology: Archaea, Bacteria & Protists

Hank veers away from human anatomy to teach us about the (mostly) single-celled organisms that make up two of the three taxonomic domains of life, and one of the four kingdoms: Archaea, Bacteria, and Protists. They are by far the most abundant organisms on Earth, and are our oldest, oddest relatives.

Look at All These Badasses Fighting for Your Right to Vote

http://nationalvoterregistrationday.org
http://mycuentame.org/nvrd
In 2008, 6 million Americans didn't vote because they missed a registration deadline or didn't know how to register. In 2012, we want to make sure no one is left out.
On September 25, 2012, volunteers, celebrities, and organizations from all over the country will "hit the streets" for National Voter Registration Day. This single day of coordinated ?eld, technology and media efforts will create pervasive awareness of voter registration opportunities--allowing us to reach tens of thousands of voters or more who we could not reach otherwise.
What It Means
Volunteers at transportation hubs, retail stores, sporting, and concerts.
Technology to help eligible voters ?nd registration drives nearby.
A network of grassroots, local organizations engaged in their own communities.
Tens of thousands of voters registering to vote online and of?ine in a single day.
What It Will Accomplish
Register Voters: A network of a thousand organizations operating on the ground and through social media will register tens of thousands of voters in the ?eld and tens of thousands more online--while also receiving pledges to vote from the already registered.
Mobilize Volunteers: By engaging nonpro?ts not usually engaged in voter registration drives and amplifying existing drives through event-based recruitment and cultural outreach, National Voter Registration Day will bring thousands of additional volunteer voter registrars into the ?eld just when we need them most.
Educate Eligible Voters: Millions of voters need to register and re-register every year. By utilizing new technology and leveraging cultural partners, we'll educate more Americans than ever before, bringing new voters into the fold.
Change the Conversation: National Voter Registration Day will be an opportunity to put our differences aside and celebrate the rights that unite us as Americans.

Debunking the Myth of Obama's Two-Year Supermajority
