Many strategy board games and video games started out as a nerd’s prime entertainment and have a unique feel and play style compared to mainstream games.
I once had a naive childlike notion that the probability of a zombie outbreak was miniscule, even impossible. As time goes by (and scientists continue to develop super viruses just because they can), the likelihood of this potential global disaster seems more and more possible; unlikely perhaps, but still possible. Literature and film have taught [...]
This topic strays from the mission of the website slightly, hopefully not too far. It does in fact deal with two things nerds like, namely t-shirts and sci-fi conventions. This post could also serve as intricate study into the analysis paralysis I routinely fall into. To those of you just wandering across the web, I [...]
Without a dastardly villain, our sci-fi heroes would have very little to do. Moreover, a science fiction movie is only as good as its nastiest bad guy. Here are five of the worst villains in sci-fi movies, or maybe five of the best.
I love all things nerdy. I may not be the most stereotypical of nerds, yes I enjoy films, Doctor Who, sci-fi writing, Carl Sagan, and astrophysics (despite my iffy math skills). However, being a girl and really enjoying these things is still a bit of a non-real thing in mainstream culture.
It is hunting season in Alabama (and elsewhere) so what an appropriate joke. Nerds aren’t usually funny, this won’t deviate from the norm. Joke paraphrased from one found at the (now defunct) Lifesajoke.com This truck driver hauling a tractor-trailer load of iPads stops for a beer. As he approaches the bar, he sees a big [...]
I recently checked my Google Analytics visitor logs to see what people are searching for when they come across the site. Surprisingly, there are some very weird things that people are looking for. That is for another post though. One thing that comes up quite often (could be the site title, huh?) is a list [...]
Nerds have never had the reputation for getting the girl. These science fiction lovers, constantly daydream about the pretty, outgoing party girls, but rarely have the courage to ask them out. Unfortunately, the thick-skulled meat-heads usually swoop in before the nerd has mustered enough courage to take the next step. Fortunately, we are living in [...]
You may have noticed the full global financial collapse that is suddenly occurring. As well as the good chance we will all soon be living in a Mad Max style anarcho-netherworld, you might also be searching for some cheap, easy distractions. How about a hobby to take your mind off things? There are a myriad [...]
Ever since the bucket list, it seems that now Nerds have come out with their list. The Nerd list is the top five things that you want to be nerdy about and enjoy doing it. This is difficult because part of being a Nerd is being your own individual self, which means no two lists, [...]
The first person to ever live to be 150 years old has already been born, according to Aubrey de Grey, a biomedical gerontologist. One of the co-founders of the non-profit SENS (Strategies for Engineered Negligible Senescence) Foundation in California, de Grey serves as the chief scientific officer and has authored an encouraging study on the [...]
In my wanderings around the ‘net, I have amassed quite a favorites folder. Most of it is work related, some links are to blogs I frequent, but, on the very bottom of the list, I have compiled a sub-folder that exists purely for the laughs. Here are my top four picks for nerdalicious, awesomely bad [...]
While the jocks of the world may be freaked out by the loss of body control associated with Huntingdon’s Disease, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), or Parkinson’s Disease, those who value their intellect have other fears lurking in the recesses of their superior minds. Dementia. Alzheimer’s Disease. Amnesia. All waiting to attack without warning! Scared yet? [...]
From childhood, I was entranced by all things geeky. While other kids were out playing tag and riding bikes, I was in the basement setting up my first underground lair. My lab centered around my interests and was quickly cluttered with comic books, chemistry sets, empty Mountain Dew cans, and gutted computer towers. My friends [...]
If you’re the kind of guy who’d rather watch The Big Bang Theory or code the night away than suffer through conversations about reality television in some tedious bar, take heart. While dating isn’t the easiest for geeks, it can be done. Einstein was married for 17 years before the death of his wife, Elsa. [...]
While the stereotypical geek lives in his Mom’s basement, surrounded by tech next to a mini-fridge stocked with Mountain Dew, some have created their own little havens in the suburbs. You never know, we could be your neighbor! Here are some of the most awesome home furnishings a nerd could ever want to pimp their [...]
You probably recognize her most for her role as 7 of 9, the outrageously-attractive ex-Borg of Voyager. Perhaps you know her as Ronnie Cooke on Boston Public. Or maybe you half-remember the scandalous particulars of her divorce from former Senate candidate Jack Ryan. No matter how she caught your attention, Jeri Ryan is a force [...]
