    Despite my badass rep as a boxer, martial artist, and all round beat 'em up kind of person...:tongue:...I'm really kind of nerd. I play D&D, read a lot of fantasy and science fiction, and have been known to appear in costume at gaming conventions. Someone got me a copy of The Elfish Gene: Dungeons, Dragons, and Growing Up Strange for Christmas and I have to confess on every page I've been like "Holy crap, I used to do that!", which actually makes me feel somewhat better about my childhood.

    Are you a nerd? Computer, gaming, comic book, or otherwise? Confess the depth and bredth of your geekery here, so the other nerds know they aren't alone.

    some football, used to be nerdy with my guitar. I'm just plain old nerd for no other reason than there's nothing else to do. I'm also powerless in terms of not knowing how to have a good time

    yep - nerdy pants maximus me:mellow:

    I'm a total compter geek, and proud of it. I spent so long playing with my new laptop yesterday I forgot to eat. Having great fun learning how Linux works at the moment. I build PCs, collect componants from old computers, and I'm a qualified computer engineer (soon to be network engineer if I pass the exam). And I'm obsessed with FPS games and sci-fi. How cool am I? :rolleyes:

    Well... I play video games and am a bit of a computer programmer, so that says nerd... Actually I'll make lists...:

    * Programmer
    * video Games
    * good with computer stuff
    * not much too look at, and don't do to well with women

    * Like sports
    * Played soccer for 3 years
    * Never studied, and dodged school a fair bit
    * Got average marks in final exams

    So I guess I'm probably overall a nerd? I dunno.

    it would be fair to say that I am bigger nerd than all of you put together.

    i am Otaku (anime nerd) i plan hentai dating-sims, watch alot of moe' anime and old school stuff. My desk, book shelve and entertainment center have a few PVC anime figures of anime girls in very short shirts. One of my other hobbies is text RPGing on forums. my walls are filled with wall scrolls and other anime art.

    This year I just got back into Star Trek. I have been watching Voyager and Next Generation. Plus I have a next Generation, gold security and operations uniform at the rank of Lieutenant Commander

    More than anything lately i have gotten back into power rangers and I have been watching all the old epidoes on you tube. i have watched ZEO and the Lost Galaxy series.

    Off ebay i plan to buy an orginal Might Morphane Power rangers, morfor and blade-blaster play set. I will put ti on my shelve with my Sailor Moon staff and star trak phaser.

    I also have a Lenovo desktop with an Apple Mighty Mouse.

    $MyName: the fact that you organize your features into (bulleted, even!) LISTS for this indicates that indeed you are a nerd.

    I'm a nerd. I'm getting back into fantasty mythoses again, but for a long time I didn't -do- anything nerdy, but I'm still permeated thoroughly with nerdiness regardless of my actions. I like charts, organization, facts. I like to look things up. I like to learn - importantly, on my own terms. I did skip a lot of school, and recently dropped out of university, and I'm well-muscled and good looking, but I'm a full-fledged nerd no matter what happens.

    I got called geeky looking just yesterday. It's O.K. cause it was by a hot chick that says she likes geeky.

    And I must be cause I'm a big Sci-Fi fan. I've never dressed up for one of those conventions but I've always wanted to.

    Here is another thing that prove how big of an anime nerd I am.

    I always have a pen in pocket with my USB flash drive on my person.

    I am such a nerd that I was one who declined a night out with two girls (that my friends set up just to try to get me out) to a local night club; just to work a paper for one of my class. I was getting to into it.

    Plus my wardrobe is very bad that I always wear a collared shirt buttoned up with all but the second botton with a pen or two in my pocket. With loose fitting jeans. My friend says I have good cloths that I do not wear right.

    Most to all of my clothing is neutral colors and very conservative. Colors are generally navy blue, military green, gray, and black.

    I do not like too many of the new styles that they have today. Hardly bought any new clothing in three years.

    Plus during the summer I do not wear short; no matter how hot it is outside.

    There are many other ways that I am nerd.
