I like a lot of talented people who aren’t well known as Skeptics-with-a-capital-S, and when these people insert skepticism into their work, it makes me beam with pride. John and Hank Green are two brothers who chat back and forth via YouTube videos, much to the delight of their gads and gads of Nerdfighter fans. The other day, John posted this video about the H1N1 vaccine craziness over the cheerleader who supposedly had dystonia after getting her flu shot and was magically cured by a quack. Regular Skepchick readers probably know this info, but John is very entertaining and it’s awesome to know that he’s disseminating this info to a wider audience. Enjoy:
