Talk Nerdy To Me

Super funny!

This video makes me think how far we have come in the past few years. It is interesting that the nerd/geek culture has become cool and hip these days.

I remember my middle school days, in which I used to be bullied and outcast for being a geek. To do or talk about the things I liked earned me the wretch¬†label of geek and the scorn of “the normal” people, the discovery of¬†RPG did not appeased my geek fame. At first I did not talked about the things I liked, then I pretended to conform, but with time I learned not to care about people’s opinions of my likings. However it seems like by the early 2000’s the social landscape started to change. Probably¬†due to the popularization of computers and the internet, people with similar interest were now closer and the social stigma of liking geeky stuff started to¬†fade. Knowledge of computers earned geeks and nerds fortunes¬†all over the world, comic book and nerd gatherings became a mecca to people of all walks in life.

It is interesting to see the world change, and people’s opinions along with it!
