I love drunk John Green excited about the spelling bee. I LOVE the spelling bee. I’m glad my idol does as well. :)
Cells, like nightclubs, have to be selectively permeable. They have to kick out the things they don’t want, like trash and, uh, ridiculously drunk people and, Justin Bieber fans.
Totally on a kick of posting random John Green quotes tonight. From the deep ones in his books to his brilliance and hilarity in his books.
So, sorry, followers, if you don’t know who John Green is.
Go read his books. Go to Youtube.com/vlogbrothers
I Am Not a P#$$Y - this video contains mild swear words.
In which Hank rants about being taunted while riding his bike (which is, btw, very unsettling) and then talks a bit about bullying and he he dealt with it (he didn’t) and how you should deal with it (survive.)
The thing about bullies is that they are weak people. The bike taunting story is true, but it’s also a metaphor. Bullies bully because they are weak, not because they people they’re bullying are weak. Their weakness makes them so frightened that they have to find some way to feel stronger.
And, of course, the person getting bullied also feels tremendously weak and inferior, but it’s important to realize that bullying does not come from a place of strength, it comes from weakness and fear. The more they bully, the weaker they become.
This is why I am unsurprised to discover that many of my physically weakest friends are in fact the most brave.
Reblogged for the video description as much as the video.
