stories? there is no story!

 

 

Interesting to see trekkies have caught up with the harry potter fans. I guess it makes sense - they have been around longer and are a more well established bunch of nerds.

 

The harry potter thing will pass into shadow. I'd like to see more "His Dark Materials" fanatics :D i wonder how that would go down in teh US bible belt.

evidently you are the connoisseur of such games, i respectfully defer to your superior knowledge on such matters.

I have a copy of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone translated into Attic Greek. Does that count as a scarey nerd?

Ah, yes. You cannot truly appreciate it until you have read it in the original ancient Greek.

So, my wife gets mad because I'm over here laughing so loudly. Then she comes over to see why and gets mad at me for wasting time laughing at a message board. I think most frightening crowd are the message boardies.

Ladies & gentlemen!

 

 

Welcome to May's round of "kicking downwards" humor which is a smashing multiple-class nerd tournament directly following the widely popular "Are you a tragic Star Wars nerd?"

 

 

 

My personal preference of loathing is those weenie Harry Potter nerds, not only are they obsessing about a product specificly aimed at children of ages 13 and downwards, but they come from the most diverse and unsound backgrounds of any nerdcult in that they attract socially challenged people from all ages. And very few of them can excuse their high age with "I was there from the start".

Trekkers or D&D worshippers (not fans) but i votes for the Trekkers.

What's sad is, if I could take High Elvish, I would. I believe Low Elvish is Sindarin and High Elvish is Quenya. At one point I knew, but there's not way for me to take Tolkien's languages.

I think Tolkein was creating a story to implement the old Anglo Saxon language.

Don't oppress my people, man. Potter is terrible, but that doesn't mean nerd. Nerd to me means knowing what is good and what is bad, or at least havings ome sort of taste, rather than slavishly following trends.
