Description: Find out more about PodCon: http://www.podcon.comKedicizdim stuff available only through Monday (or until we run out!): http://www.dftba.comWhen you think about it, it is very weird that most people get the choice of whether or not to create another another human being, but I'm very happy we live in a world where we do (mostly) get to make that choice. And, frankly, I'm not super good at decisions. Katherine and I can't decide where to go for dinner most nights, let alone whether we want to un-alterably change our lives forever.But now that I've been a parent for BASICALLY NO TIME AT ALL but while I'm still a little bit capable of remembering what my life was like before I was a dad...I just wanted to share some thoughts. -- Hank----Subscribe to our newsletter! http://nerdfighteria.com/newsletter/ And join the community at http://nerdfighteria.com http://effyeahnerdfighters.comHelp transcribe videos - http://nerdfighteria.infoJohn's twitter - http://twitter.com/johngreenJohn's tumblr - http://fishingboatproceeds.tumblr.comHank's twitter - http://twitter.com/hankgreenHank's tumblr - http://edwardspoonhands.tumblr.com

Thank you to all of the dads who have made so many wonderful dad jokes over the years, many of which I stole for this video. There is a partial list of sources below! Thanks everyone for your kind wishes during paternity leave. It's been intense and wonderful. I am glad I had a joyful way to return to this channel even though there's a lot to be concerned about in the world and my country right now. I really love making these videos, and I am very lucky to have this thing in my life.

In which John Green sings a lullaby of his own devising about all the things he will buy his baby in the event a mockingbird fails to sing. These things include a quilt, the sultanate of Oman, a diamond ring, and polka dots, among many others. Stay tuned at the end for some serious cuteness.

During the presidency of Lula Da Silva, billions of dollars in bribes were taken to allow construction companies to overcharge the government-owned oil company, Petrobras. Now, Brazil has corruption, but it's actually pretty good for a developing country. But the people of Brazil have come to expect more, and they have been left down. Current president, Dilma Rousseff, was chairwoman of Petrobras during the period of corruption, but no one knows whether Lula or Dilma were involved or aware. But Lula was under investigation before Rousseff appointed him to be her chief of staff, a move that means he can no longer be prosecuted by a normal court. I think this whole thing speaks very highly of Brazil. A reckoning had to come, and I'm pleased the citizens are holding the government accountable. However, I can't stop seeing parallels between the awful partisan situation here in the U.S. and the lack of skepticism people in this story have when it comes to believing awful things about their political opponents. Using this scandal to clean up Brazil must be done, but using it to score political points or gain power is going to rip the country apart. This is an epic story, and no one knows where it ends. Whether Rousseff retains power and who gets elected once the house is fully cleaned out will say a lot about how this very young democracy handles its economic and cultural growth when people's perceptions are controlled largely by social media. I think there are many good things in Brazil's future, but leaders will have to do more than fight for power. They will have to actually lead.

Patreon Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v dOCTt-O9TR8 DHJ Animation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v hPxXZu_N0g4 VidCon: http://www.vidcon.com So, to be clear, I've done a thing here that you shouldn't do, which is apply population statistics to individuals. But i did it for a good reason...uh...fun? Of course there are many things that are likely to affect your age of death as much as or more than your current age (income, location, race, medical history, etc.) But also you gotta understand (and statisticians will hate this video for this reason and probably others) that the an average of life expectancy doesn't tell you much at all about when an individual will die. For example, an change in child mortality changes life expectancy far more than a change in elderly mortality because the addition or removal of small numbers to an average will affect it dramatically. This is why you'll often hear that the life expectancy in some period of time was 35 years old. That makes it sound like people were all dying around 35, but in fact ages were distributed all over, but there were far more deaths of children and babies, which pulled the average way down. 80 year olds in the middle ages weren't, like, some kind of mythical creature. "Life expectancy" just isn't a super useful statistic for telling you what length of life to expect. Also, it's not even /that/ good at telling you things about public health. People are supposed to die, so a better measure (which Australia actually uses) is "Years of Potential Life Lost" or YPLL https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Years_of_potential_life_lost The US has a surprisingly bad YPLL because of suicides, drug overdoses, homicide, and car accidents. That allows you to study whether diseases kill lots of people who are at the end of their lives or people who might otherwise live a quite a long time. Like, dementia kills mostly very old people while suicide and accidents kill lots of young people. We shouldn't give those deaths the same weight. And then lastly, if you want to go all the way down this rabbit hole, you should google "Global Burden of Disease" which endeavors to measure beyond years of life lost and into the quality of those years. Like, disease can cause life-long chronic pain or disability, and those things should be considered as well as death. OK, I am surprised by how much I just typed about this! ---- Subscribe to our newsletter! http://nerdfighteria.com/newsletter/ And join the community at http://nerdfighteria.com http://effyeahnerdfighters.com Help transcribe videos - http://nerdfighteria.info John's twitter - http://twitter.com/johngreen John's tumblr - http://fishingboatproceeds.tumblr.com Hank's twitter - http://twitter.com/hankgreen Hank's tumblr - http://edwardspoonhands.tumblr.com

In which Hank sings the oldest song we know of...the Seikilos Epitaph. Most songs from this period were written with only the lyrics, but the Seikilos Epitaph, buried as part of a funeral, contained an unmistakable chord chart. And so, 2000 years later, I can still sing it for you. Here the Seikilos song on the lyre...possibly a little bit more likely of an interpretation. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v xERitvFYpAk And here's Hurrian Hymn #6, the oldest piece you're ever likely to hear, though it's incomplete. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v QpxN2VXPMLc And here's where you can buy my album: Explicit: http://dftba.com/product/1803 Clean: http://dftba.com/product/1802
