Meet Kelly, The First Recipient of a Nerdfighter Indie Creator Grant


So Vlogbrothers started running pre-rolls more than a month ago, so we’ve had the first lump of money come in. The biggest chunk of the first payment (and probably a fairly large chunk of the second one) will be going to Kelly Kend to help her work on her documentary “Yeah, Maybe No” which is about consent and sexual abuse.

Just by chance, I was at the same conference as Kelly last weekend so we got to hang out (and I can confirm that she is very smart, very nice, and very well informed on this topic.) 

She’s a survivor herself, and just an all around awesome person, and Nerdfighteria is responsible for the money she now has to finish her documentary.

It’s called the principal of maximum confusion. Mathematicians like to name things such that they provide the most confusion to non-mathematicians.

If anyone asks you to explain something you don’t want to explain, just cite the principal of maximum confusion and it’s lemma “Now, shut up.”

Today I didn’t buy a plastic skeleton, no, I bought a friend.

So this happened at Subway the other day
Me wearing my Pizza John shirt at subway:
Sandwich Artist: Who's that guy?
Me: Um... John Green.
Sandwich Artist: I've heard that name before. Is he like running for president?
Me: No.. He wrote some books. You've probably heard of The Fault In Our Stars.
Sandwich Artist: oh yeah. That thing . Well he should run for president. I'd vote for him, since I take it from your shirt he's a pizza fan. I'm pro pizza.
