baconbeard: Duck_of_Doom: baconbeard: Let me guess, it was either Star Wars, Star Trek, Firefly, Dr. Who, Game of Thrones, or some sort of super-hero themed. *yawn*/dart//you're not a "nerd" when everyone's into itStop liking what I know about?Like whatever you like. Just don't go loudly proclaiming about how big a "nerd" you are because you've got all three seasons of Game of Thrones on BluRay.
UberDave: Uncontrolled_Jibe: UberDave: Damn. The bride has huge tracts of land.Let's see, what might be the probability that having passed through this place one or both of them stopped in again or that SOMEONE they know comes here and might point out the link. He loved her enough to do this, so just let it go. I can be less than politically correct sometimes, but damn, dude. Don't be a dick.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C6qHdtyBWy4[img.fark.net image 299x223]

ZeroCorpse: Flappyhead: ZeroCorpse: Wow. That is the definition of "trying too hard." Not just one nerdy theme, but ALL OF THEM squashed together and then submitted to social media.You people make me glad I stopped referring to myself as a geek. I'm happy with "weird", thanks. These days, "weird" is still somewhat unique, but "geek" has become so trendy as to be mundane.He's no geek, though. The word we used for people like this in the 1980s was "spazz."Here it is folks, the day ZeroCorpse officially crossed over and became a nerd-hipster.I am not a nerd. I'm an old postpunk who happens to like a few nerdy things, but I have never, ever referred to myself as a nerd, nor do I particularly like being called a geek, either.The difference is that, while I like some geeky things quite a lot (comic books, science fiction, games, etc.), I do not identify myself with any of them. I do not typically wear t-shirts displaying my favorite comic book characters or making nerd references (or, in fact, any other words or print on them; I'm not a billboard.) I do not collect anything, anymore; Not action figures, not comics, not posters, not anything. I do not get in pissing contests about how much better my stupid cosplay is than someone else's (because I mostly loathe cosplay as the biggest attention-whore move of them all). I do not talk to normal people about my geeky media interests.I consider nerds and geeks decent enough people, but I do not identify myself as one of them. I do not identify with any clique or tribe anymore. I'm happy to be outside of all that. I'm happy to just be a nice, kinda weird, easy-going guy. I don't even go to conventions anymore because they're such extroverted events now. They rub me the wrong way. I liked them back when it was a bunch of guys at fold-out tables selling comics and signing stuff for fans. No cosplayers. No movie tie-ins. No toy collectors. No video game companies. Smaller, more intimate, less "LOOK AT ME I AM GEEK! HEAR ME ROAR ...
space1999: I bet she's fat and ugly.// checks TFAYep.
quizzical: TFA: Their two children - 4-year-old Kal-El (named after Superman's real name) and 2-year-old Harley Quinn (named after one of Batman's enemies)Okay, Harley Quinn can pass as an unusual name, but not an unfortunate one. Kal-El (and I'm assuming that the wholehyphenated thing is the first name), on the other hand can look forward to a lifetime of mockery. Seriously, they could have gone for Clark with Kent as a middle name that he didn't have to share around, and no one would be the wiser.
JolobinSmokin: 2 year old son named Harley Quinn?Boy named after girl character, that will be great in elementary school./csb?almost named my daughter harley quinn, but didn't.//underlined the cool part.
AspectRatio: The grotesque and prolonged toddlerhood that is "nerd culture" is on full display here.Initially after I typed this comment I decided it was too mean. I was about to delete it but then I read they named their son "Kal-El".
FlashHarry: let me guess... both are gigantic.
