Your IQ just went up a ton of points.

We all strive to be a better person and have more knowledge. Whilst some of us have sat in three years of philosophy lectures to get a degree, some of us have studied at the University of YouTube. As we’re always striving to improve, we’ve produced you a little Dan Howell fact sheet.

So if your mum asks if you’re studying, say yes. Because you are.

Now go forth and raise your Dan Howell IQ.

Dan is younger than Phil by quite some difference.

4 and a half years, in fact.

Dan used to work in a DIY store. 

And then in Asda (Walmart, for you Americans). What we would’t give to see him stack our shelves!

He then went on to study Law at the University of Manchester.

Clever clogs!

Dan is scared of moths…

So don’t dress up as one at his next meet and greet, yeah?

He wants 2 or 3 children.

We reckon he’d made a PHANtastic papa!
