(Buzzfeed)   We're still not too sure over the "meek inheriting the Earth" thing, but it's become pretty obvious the nerds will end up owning it   (buzzfeed.com) divider line 18

Just when you think the nerds are taking full control, they will seem to cede it all. What will have happened is that they will merge with their technologies and becomes something greater; seeing the uneducated rabble of meat as less worthy, they form a shadow government where they continue to control and shape the world whilst the average man still believes he is in charge.

Or they get swirlied. One of the two.

I used to think nerds were getting accepted, but I think its just what some of the cool kids are calling themselves now. Lots of socially agile proto-Jobs relying on trollish proto-Wozniacs to get shiat done.

I briefly watched that King of Nerds show to confirm something I spotted in a commercial: at least one of the kids was wearing fake glasses. Just think about that.

I hate to break it to you but pretty much every reality show seeds their "contestants" from casting agencies. I've seen the casting sheets. They essentially are a wish list of stereotypes/archetypes along with the gender and a preferred physical description.

I know. But even their cast nerds are phoning it in. The world doesn't belong to nerds, it belongs to their managers.

The only exception I've seen is Face Off, where everyone who survives past the first round or two has a lot of talent at creating prosthetics and applying theatrical makeup. You'll also notice how that show is pretty much devoid of any fake drama between the contestants. Hell, just about every show you see them helping each other out even though they are all under tight deadlines and can't really afford to take time away from their own work. It's one of the few reality competitions I can stand to watch.

This.

No matter how intriguing a headline is I know for a fact that clicking a buzzfeed link can only disappoint.

And it's pretty awesome.

That's really not an "or" question.

It's the nerds that thought they could manipulate our country into some Utopian paradise for themselves while draining us dry. It's the nerds that got us the NSA in our current state.

gfid: The meek shall inherit nothing.


actually the passage is accurate, the translation is not.  The word we translate as "meek" in English was, in the military-derived Greek in common usage at the time this stuff was written down , a word that was used to describe a properly trained war horse.  To be "meek" a trainer had to be able to pass a burning torch in front of the horses eyes and then all the way underneath the horse without the horse moving a muscle (horse are naturally and instinctively terrified of fire)

So the proper interpretation of the passage is blessed are the (stubborn/disciplined) who stand thier ground no matter what, they shall inherit the earth

and so they shall
