Hank Green on The Olympics

As you're lying on the couch watching the Olympics, feeling like an out-of-shape slacker, questioning why you haven't achieved such glory in your life, remember that these Olympic stars are ultimately no better or no worse than you.  Gold medals don't stop a person from needing to love or to be loved.

So sure, it's awesome to watch such amazing talent.  But you've got talent too, in other ways.  Everyone does.  I might not be able to compete on the parallel bars, but if there were a parallel parking competition, I'd win the gold for sure.  And I come from the suburbs, beeatches!

If you were able to compete in the Olympics, what would be your best shot at the gold?
