It’s no secret that I and most of my friends are nerds of some sort. Granted, it seems arbitrary what forms of entertainment are considered nerdy or not. As Americans, I guess non-nerds are supposed to like reality TV, football (American) and summer movie blockbusters. (Video games are OK as long as they’re first-person shooters.)
Here are a few things that assure my nerd credentials:
1. Being able to name 20 different chess openings.
2. Preferring to watch professional Starcraft to professional sports.
3. The ability to mathematically demonstrate why the World Series is not a good way to determine who the best team in the league is.
So tell me…what makes you a nerd?
