In Which John Sits in Front of Grey Speckled Walls

Some big Nerdfighter moments have happened in airports over the years. John discovered the arcade game that would soon become the name of our community in his first airport video on February 1, 2007 and he left the Yeti car key-less via an airport in September of the same year. In 2009, Gus the Bug was reincarnated through a request in an airport and we had a plane named after us as it flew to Haiti. In 2011, John “narrowly avoided” arrest after filming a monument to a dead sheep and in 2012 we saw question Tuesdays and watched as John signed bookplates against a gray speckled wall. It will be sad to see them go, if only for a little while. But as the past has shown, I, for one, am excited to see them return later this year or next.

EDIT: I fixed the spelling mistake in the first gif. I know it’s not spelled specled. Thanks for hanging in there.

Ads Work…but for Whom?

In which John takes an unexpected visit to the gray speckled walls of America’s airports to mull the role that advertising plays in shaping (and funding) online video content, at times incentivizing the popular over the significant.

Also I just had dental surgery, so I’m in a great mood.
