  1. SciShow’s Hank Green Teaches You How To Get Rid Of Hiccups

    *hic*

    The folks over at SciShow are feeling altruistic today, and they want you to know how to get rid of your hiccups. Honestly, every time I get the hiccups I do this thing where I hold my breath and press a pressure point right over my eyebrows, and they go away every time. Regular TMS science guy Dan would hate to hear that. But it totally works. I swear. This SciShow video helps prove I'm at least right about the breath part.

  2. Please Tell Everyone We Use Our Whole Brains and Not Just 10%, Thanks

    Maybe it's that only 10% of people use their brains at all?

    If only someone would've told the Lucy screenwriters before... no. Now that I think about it, that probably wouldn't have helped the movie.

  3. The Amazing Scientific Achievements of the Woman Who Kickstarted Paleontology

    "Thanks, Mary Anning." -Steven Spielberg [citation needed]

    Before Mary Anning and her contemporaries, it was still widely assumed that fossils were just remains from existing animals and not generally useful for science (nor put in the ground by Satan). Thought most of her work wound up being published by men because life in the early 19th century was awful, Anning made a ton of important discoveries—including what bezoar stones actually were, because she needed to see the dinosaurs' droppings.

  4. Hank Green Explains Why Stars Twinkle In This Illuminating Episode of SciShow

    When you wish upon a star, nothing happens because stars are not aware of their surroundings and cannot grant wishes.

    Contrary to what Inspector Javert might believe, stars don't fill the darkness with order and light because they are the sentinels of the sky. They actually do it because of this thing called science. Though we bet Javert would appreciate a lot of things about science, too. It's very neat and orderly sometimes.

  8. Hank Green Wishes For Another J.K. Rowling Book A Day Before Her Secret Crime Novel Is Revealed [VIDEO]

    This is just like magic!

    Hank Green, of the Vlogbrothers YouTube channel, makes a point of writing a song about Harry Potter every year on the anniversary of his release of "Accio Deathly Hallows," the wizard rock song that celebrated the impending release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and brought a lot more visibility to the Vlogbrothers channel back in 2007. This year Green seems to have predicted the future with his newest song "Oh, J.K. Rowling," in which he politely requests the author write something new for her many fans. Amazingly, the video was posted two days before the news broke that J.K. Rowling had secretly written a crime novel, The Cuckoo's Calling, under the pseudonym Robert Gailbraith. Since Rowling was revealed to be the author The Cuckoo's Calling has risen from moderate success and favorable reviews to a spot on top of both U.K. and U.S. Barnes & Noble and Amazon sales charts.  The book, which sold 1,500 copies when it was released in the spring, is now selling out and will have to be reprinted. I'm sure Green is thrilled to know that his wish was granted. His timing is almost magical. (via YouTube, Deadline) Previously in J.K. Rowling
