The lovely tinaoftotallyawesome suggested that we go see a movie when a good one plays at Discovery Green. I think this is a fantastic idea, but unfortunately they don’t have any of their future showings up yet. So I’ll continue to keep you guys posted about that, and you guys should keep submitting ideas (of either convenient times or fun activities) for meet-ups that we can have!
Thank you all so much!!
PS. If you haven’t yet, you should really watch the newest vlogbrothers video. Not only does it contain ultra levels of awesomeness and cool, but it was also filmed at the luxurious Hotel Zaza, right here in Houston, Texas!!
Driving through west Texas today, Hank and Katherine and I have made some important innovation to the Game of Cows, and we thought you might like to know our rules. (For those who don’t know, the Game of Cows is a road trip game in which you say “cows” when you see more than one cow. It’s very complicated. Oh, also, you can get points for saying, “dead people” whenever you see more than one grave.)
So here are the new rules we’ve developed, basing the game on quidditch:
Cows are worth 10 points. Dead people are worth 150 points, and whenever someone correctly calls dead people, the game ends. So generally if you see dead people, as when the seeker catches the snitch, you win. But if Katherines has 160 points from cows and I have 0, and I call dead people, the game has ended with her winning.
If you incorrectly call cows or dead people (like, for instance, if you call cows but it turns out they’re horses), your score goes to zero within that game.
You then keep track of your victories and losses over the course of the trip.
So far today katherine has three victories, I have one, and Hank has zero even though he is trying harder than anyone else. (Katherine is at the moment so confident of victory that she is taking a nap.)
Cows is a really good game to play in Texas. Lord knows they’re every where XD and the new rules really do seem to make it more interesting!!
Hey guys!! :) Sure was great meeting you all and John and Hank on Friday night at Pasadena High, huh?
One thing I noticed while talking to you all is that we tend to work in small groups of nerdfighting that wish they knew other nerdfighters. I want to change this!
How you may ask?
I propose meetups and projects and other bonding type things!
We have a beautiful city, and I would love to see Nerdfighteria flourish here!!
SO if you’re from Houston or Texas or you just want to get to know more nerdfighters, follow this page, and please feel free to message me if you have any ideas!
Stay tuned for more updates, and I will talk to you all soon!!
Is to give Sean some internet love.
Remember Sean guys? He saved the show by bringing Hank his cord??
He’s gotten a lot of attention today after Hank reblogged a post of his, but incase you didn’t see that, his tumblog can be found at seaninprogress.tumblr.com
Go check him out! He’s a nice and genuine person who is taking all the new attention he’s gotten today in stride :)
He just posted his YouTube channel (http://www.youtube.com/user/seanmcdermott127/videos) and the music on there is amazing. Like seriously. He’s super talented. Don’t believe me?
Go listen to that and come back.
Super crazy good, right??
But his videos have hardly any views at all!!! So your mission, dear fellow nerdfighters, should you choose to accept it, is to tell everyone you know about this kid and his music, and make them watch his videos, cause he definitely deserves it!! :)
