The "Storm Area 51 Facebook group" has become a breeding ground for a particular subgenre of sh*tposting: depression memes. In this Vlog, we argue that depression memes are the most modern development of a philosophical and psychological sentiment immortalized over 150 years ago in what is considered one of the first existentialist stories: Fyodor Dostoevsky's novella Notes From Underground.

I met Molly Burke a few months ago. She’s awesome. I absolutely love what she’s done on YouTube to bring awareness to living with disability, and turning it into ability. And her guide dog Gallop is awesome too! When Molly and I first met, we started talking about how she navigates the world, because I’m a nerd and I always steer the conversation toward science. I was not prepared for what she told me. She said she uses echolocation! Molly’s brain has adapted to listen to sounds in her environment in ways that most of us sighted people can’t even imagine. I went to meet her in LA and brought a special surprise, to see if my brain could learn what hers has.

Special thanks to Brian Bushway, Daniel Kish, Molly Burke and Gallop!
