Default Interesting...

The way I've always approached it is to think of Geeks as specialists, specific to some particular area of interest, e.g. comic-geek, science-geek, Japan-geek, programming-geek, etc...whereas the title nerd lent-itself to more of a generalist p.o.v. or how the person approaches things. Like, a person could be a geek with respect to one or two specific areas and still be otherwise normal. Although, the biggest geeks are, likely, deep-down nerds; as most serious nerds have some type of geek-specialty.

You guys are putting too much thought into this lol

It's an expression


Nerd Rage
Term used to describe extreme anger, offence, indignation, and other similar emotions by a nerd, geek or similar. Nerd Rage can be triggered by a number of things, most commonly through helplessness in the face of bullying, internet fights, or seeing their favorite film/show/anime/etc degraded or insulted in some way.
"So, did you see the new Transformers movie?"
"Yea. Michael Bay screwed it up so badly, it set my Nerd Rage off big-time."

Thing was, he didn't get any attention from posting that lame comic, then quoted himself just to annoy us one more time. I'm nerd raging right now.

I nerd rage over the religious/scientific ways of thought. I mean even if I achieve a perfect mind/body/spirit balance and live forever..I'm still stuck on a effing planet that will blow up when the sun goes supernova. So if my God/Goddess/or whatever doesn't give me the vision to get off this planet after all these centuries or if I figure out a way and get shanked right before I do it..it really makes me wonder what the eff is the real deal. Then I watch movies like Groundhog Day and figure..I might as well make the best of it.

The label, nerd, itself.

If one shows intelligence, intellectual interests, or an interest in something considered to be "nerdy", one is labelled as a "nerd". This would be fine, except it tends to include the presumptive, negative stereotypes as well. Such as, being socially awkward, physically inept, shy, etc.

However, the opposite is more likely to cause rage. The assumption that anyone that fits the archetypal image of the nerd, or has "nerdy" interests, is of high intelligence.

FIRST OFF! ....After that little eye raping I was made privy to on the first page, I had to go visit r/aww on reddit to not poke my own eyes out with rusty spoons. (Mmm...rusty spoons). SO, thanks for that mischel, you creepy fuck.

Now that that's out of the way, let's begin, shall we?

- Michael. Bay. Grrr.
- In that same vein, remakes. WHY THE FUCK DID YOU REMAKE LET THE RIGHT ONE IN WHEN IT'S BARELY 5 YEARS OLD!
- Apple fanboys/girls
- Hipsters
- LOST hate
- I think I'm gonna hafta agree with Jess87 and go with fucking Liefeld
- Larry of Larry's Comics. He's a cock mongler.
- Claudia Christian. Washed up has been who has nothing better to do than cook supper for complete strangers and talk about the cast of Babylon 5 constantly playing grab-ass.

The last two were on my radio show, so those are from first hand experience (I booked neither of them)

First thing's first...I gotta give most props to savethemurlocs11 as everything she's said in this thread has been the gospel truth. That comic was stains and Big Bang Theory is poop from a butt (how anyone can get it up for Sheldon aka "Least Likable Character on Television" is beyond me).

Now for a brief selection off my list (some of which have already been mentioned by others in this thread). Also I'm going to preemptively apologize if you fall under any of these categories - I'm making generalizations and there are exceptions to all rules so please don't think I'm going at your throat specifically:

-Bad cosplay, and specifically people cosplaying outside of their body-type. Fat Yoko/Sailor Whoever/Vash the Stampede does not look good, sorry.
-Dubbed anime. Typically this is the worst although there are some standouts (FMA: Brotherhood)
-George Lucas. Quit going Penn State on my childhood you fucking prick (topical zinger!)
-Dr. Who fans. I'm sick of people calling my nerd credibility into question because I don't like this show despite the fact they nearly all just jumped on this bandwagon in the last few years.
-Firefly Fans. Where were all of you when the show needed viewers to not die on the vine? And now that it's gone you complain and complain.
-Joss Whedon. He's a good writer, specifically his comic work, but I can't stand any of his non-Firefly TV shows.
-Felicia Day. Am I the only one who thinks she comes off like a total bitch all the time?
-Deadpool. Period.
-Marvel Comics. My god does this company need to bite the bullet and do a Crisis on Infinite Earths-esque reboot of their universe.
-DC Comics. By contrast DC needs to stop doing reboots.
-Jhonen Vasquez fans. I like this dude's work myself but in general JV fans are like Juggalos without face paint (read: the worst)
-Nintendo. I feel like the WiiU is an actual insult to the intelligence of the people who grew up keeping Nintendo in business. Being able to play the same games as systems 6-7 years old is not a great bullet point.

Okay, I'm gonna stop there because I could go on for approximately forever.

For the sake of stirring up some actual arguments in this thread I will object to two things mentioned. Simply because sometimes when people nerdrage over these particular things I almost nerdrage over their nerdrage. xD

I seriously never got this. Sure, in some cases the originals are better, but an Anime like Baccano, or Hellsing, which takes place in America and Britain respectively... Doesn't it actually make more sense that they speak English? And in an anime like Code Geass, as awesome as the japanese version of Lelouch is, when he tries to speak English and goes "RERUCHOUA VI BRITTANIEA CUMMENDS YE!" I tend to facepalm so hard I nearly hurt myself.

And to return to Hellsing for a bit... Here is exhibit B:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LDnu0giUS00

I guess I don't see why it's worth getting upset over. Just watch the version you prefer. But that said, I suppose I WOULD nerdrage if I watched an anime dubbed into Swedish...

If anything makes ME nerdrage it's when people try to start Windows vs. Mac wars or similar, and discredit the other product because they cheer for their own favorite like they would cheer for a sports team. It's true that Apple products are expensive, but for us technologically unintelligent people they are easy to use. I have an iMac just so I can play games in Boot Camp (Windows mode) and do office/school work more easily in "Mac Mode". I wish the computer wouldn't burn such a hole in my wallet, but I see it as getting the best from two worlds.

As for the phones/other stuff... different tastes. *shrug* I just think the hate I see is just as irrational as the blind love that some of the more obsessed fans show.

For me it's a three-fold problem: 1.) The dialogue doesn't fit the mouth animation properly, which leads to 2.) lines of dialogue being changed to attempt to rectify that situation. And finally 3.) I prefer the Japanese language when it comes to the melodramatic nonsense coming out of characters' mouths because it sounds less stupid if I can't understand it spoken. That might sound ridiculous but I'm the same way with music lyrics - I like a lot of Japanese music and it's largely because I find English lyrics to be mostly-asinine and without being able to understand them Japanese lyrics are more voice-as-instrument. Also for what it's worth I think Japanese voice actors typically put more into it.

As for just watching what I prefer...well, I mean, yeah, that's what I do. And I don't go at anyone's throat for favoring dubbed shows. Of course I think they're wrong, but what do I care if my opinion clashes with theirs? It's just that anime in general is a nerd hobby and I have a distaste for dubbed anime, so I figured I'd air it here.

Of course I think they're wrong, but what do I care if my opinion clashes with theirs? It's just that anime in general is a nerd hobby and I have a distaste for dubbed anime, so I figured I'd air it here.
i love dubbed anime! i feel like english voice casts usually fit my expectations better. especially since japanese women do a lot of male characters. Cowboy Bebop, Trigun and FMA were really the first anime series i really got into and i thought the dubbing was really good. good enough that i had to holdoff on watching Brotherhood because the characters just didnt sound like themselves to me without the dubbing.

The dubbing in those aren't horrible at all. Its when you get into awesome underrated shit like Mnemosyne and there are two tollerable voice actors and the rest make you want to kill babies...

Oh, but the dub of SHin-Chan is arguable the best dub ever XD
