There’s no concern there’s- that’s a hundred percent. So we’re- but they’re used to that, Marc. They haven’t seen anything else. Marc, I don’t- I don’t like to say this, it doesn’t bring me any joy, but you are technically closer to your mark than Meredith. I’m not happy about it. I didn’t record it. -Are you kidding?! You f*ckball! That was like the best one ever! -Oh boy, put up with it. Wow! Todododo, Dodododo I do remember it! Alright. It sounds echo-ey… Even to me. I love to talk loud, Stan. I know.

Queen Victoria called it really- Miss Maudie’s hand closed tightly on mine, and I said nothing. It’s warmth was enough. Was that too much of a pause? -That was a big pause. -A little too much. I also think Gatsby treats alcohol cheaply. For the record. That’s how professors stay employed! I’m just kidding professors, you stay employed because of tenure! No, I’m just kidding again, please don’t hate me! With a big athi- Athist from Assena. But when it comes to the sacred space of ones church, Cowporni- Cowp- cowpornia… -quote, let a dode- dodest mouble. It is an autobiograph. An autobiography. Go f*ck yourself, San Diego.

Proud(?) pipes save lives Funshine bear wants to kiss me. It’s weird, he’s got his mouth all pursed and- Eh, I’m into it. Plutrarch’s lives and paradise loss. He’s better read than I am. Plutarch. Plutrarch. Why did I do that. Because you need somene to say goodnight sweet prince and may angels-sls sing thee to thy rest- What is it? And flights of angels. Yes, goodnight Yes. Basically! Ahm, Hm. Hmm. Hm. Hm. Hm. Hm. Anyway. That wasn’t my best work Or is it in fact herioc to- factcheck informati- Fact check. Fact check information that you get from a ghost before killing someone. Fact check. Fact-checked. Fact check. It is a revenant, it comes back. What is a revenant… Time magazine concurred that the book- Concurred. Said. Nothing wrong with “said”. Big believer in “said”. Except when they came from Macbeth. To Macbeth. I mean except when they came from Macbeth- to Macbeth! F*cknuggets. With a pathographical record of the typical modes of- Frickburgers. That’s a very loud truck. God, that’s the loudest truck that’s ever happened in all of human history. I don’t think any writer has ever benefitted from an opium addiction. I’m just gonna go there. So Shakespeare based Hamlet on a medieval Scan- med-evil? So- So Shakespeare based Hamlet on a medieval mid-evil? What the f*ck am I saying, medieval. Oh, that’s a very long quote. It is an utterance from the depths of a struggling, suffering- I don’t have the rest of it on the screen. What’s the joke there. Meredith? You’ve been dumped a lot? -I don’t know what that means. Oh yeah, that’s probably me just not finishing a sentence. I was so pleased with it that I didn’t feel the need to connect those ideas. -Just make sure you get it in somewhere in the last page. Green- -I actually like this book. Thank you, I could never remember that line. *clapping* Of an inextinguishable misinthr- Mis- misanthropy? Misanthropy? Misanthropic. Misanthropy? Mis- misanthropy?

  1. Pleasssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssse do ap human geography or do latin pleeeeaaaaassssssseeeeeee

  2. Sad to learn from outtakes that John's real life vocab is not as eloquent and pleasant to listen to. Disappointed, and a cop out to use language that is ugly when you clearly are gifted in articulation when you want to be.

  3. I don't care if any writer has benefited from an opium addiction (because I, like the universe, am cold and indifferent to human suffering).  I think you should go out on a limb and say no writing has benefited from an opium addiction.

    Or is that what you said?

  4. I litteraly died when I realized that The Fault In Our Stars was written by him, because my history teacher always showed us these videos, and then I read TFIOS for english. It too me until like just now to realize that it is the same person and I am dying right now! 😀

  5. Haha I never knew how laid back John was until I saw this video, if you ever do any other videos other then crash course you should start a new channel.

  6. In which @John Green sings the @CrashCourse intro song, is interrupted by quite possibly the loudest truck in all existence, and attempts to pronounce the most difficult word in the history of words – which is apparently "misanthropy."

  7. "That's how professors stay employed! I'm just kidding professors, you stay employed because of tenure. Nah, I'm just kidding again, and please don't hate me!"
    Om my gosh! That cracked me up!

  8. I hate when people believe that just because you're a writer you need to speak differently in a prestigious manner. He's human as well.

  9. "I dont think any writer's ever benefited from an opiate addiction…." i have to disagree; edgar allen poe obviously had a love for opiates, which is easier to detect when youve been addicted to opiates. Also, lou reed was a musician and an amazing writer and was infamous his love of heroin.

  10. When I should be up writing my English paper for 1st year lit class, you may find me instead at 12: 25 in the morning watching crash course outtakes.

  11. Is this show over? I hope not. I think this is great and I think that if they did lord of the rings / the hobbit (please) it would be awesome
