    :laugh: I think it's time to start a nerd war. Firefly is better than Star ****. There, I said it. Furthermore, I have always preferred the original Battlestar Galactica to the modern one and Star ****.


    Firefly is the best

    I hate it when people call themselves nerd because they enjoy pop culture.

    I know, right? You are not a nerd just because you enjoy some of the most popular movie and book franchises ever. There is nothing "nerdy" about Star Wars, Disney, LoTR, Harry Potter, The Hunger Games etc. These things are massively popular. Even my mom has read the Hunger Games. Harry Potter has his own theme park down in Florida. Right next to the Disney one that has the Star Wars ride in it. If something is popular enough to warrant a theme park, it's not nerdy.

    There's nothing wrong with liking these things if you do. Just don't think that liking them makes you unusual or nerdy.

    When you have Tolkien's The Silmarillion and the Appendices to LOTR nearly memorized, I think that transcends the line between "enjoying pop culture" and nerdom.

    Nerd and geek here by popular definition. Software engineer by trade, bookish bespectacled social outcast growing up, still a bookish bespectacled introvert in my early 40s. Not as much of an outcast now that I live and work in an area with a lot of fellow engineers and introverts. 20+ year tabletop gamer (mostly AD&D), prefer fantasy and sci-fi as reading genre. About due for another reread of LotR/Hobbit/Silmarillion.

    My sister joked about getting husband and I matching pocket protectors when we got married 22 years ago :embarassed: She was a teenager then and a bit of an a$$hat, but she's mostly outgrown that.

    Edit: Thinking about the definition of geekdom as having specialized knowledge in a particular esoteric field (ie band geek, etc) - consider that the folks who memorize all sorts of sports statistics like Hank Aaron's batting average are really sports geeks :wink: I suppose if there's a particular field I tend to truly qualify as 'geek' in, it's probably needlework. Not your average geek specialty, but there you have it.

    Hard core geek here. I may or may not have dressed up as a klingon.

    When people ask me how I'm losing weight I say "Adipose".

    I work as a systems administrator. Learned to program from my mum who was a software engineer for Grumman. I am also a classical singer (Baroque music mostly) as a side job on weekends. I committed the BWV catalogue to memory when I was fourteen. I was picked on in high school for being a smart theater kid. I love reading science fiction: Neal Stephenson, William Gibson, Dan Simmons, et al. "Geeky" pop culture is fine, but since when is Harry Potter "nerdy"? Does that mean all twelve year olds are nerds?

    Ever gone to a book or movie midnight release (and in costume)? Or a convention of any kind as a HP character? Or play muggle quidditch. That's when it became nerdy. Nothing wrong with it, actually really awesome!

    Last two books midnight release.

    More of a geek than a nerd, but both are fine :)
