Nerdfighters

Here's the deal:
I have no friends who are NerdFighters in real life. I AM in the process of converting them from lame into made of awesome. But it is a lengthy process, considering how many videos they need to watch to really understand the many jokes and things from Hank and John and what-not.... Rambling for the win!
ANYWAYS.
I would love it if we could set up a real hardcore pen pal thingy. [wow. that sentence was NOT made of awesome]
But, yeah. Then us NerdFighters can really discuss. Our lives. Current NerdFighter news. How to truly be MADE OF AWESOME.... etc. etc. etc.
So, yeah. I was stuck in the waiting room while watching Mr. John Green feed Willy and talk about, well, everything on BlogTV... And we discussed about how few people really have NERDFIGHTER MADE OF AWESOME friends they can talk to all the time...

There's my proposition.
I assume communication via E-Mail, what with lame postage, and people not feeling very safe giving out addresses.
So there.

Let the discussion and ideas flow henceforth!

EDIT:
hmm. As you may have noticed.... There are a LOT of NerdFighters. Aaand, well, I can think of ideas, but wow. I'm not one for truly implementing and details and all that mumbo-jumbo....
So I guess this discussion board has just kind of become a place to answer those questions for everyone to look at and if you see someone and think 'Woooaaaahhh, I totally understand what they mean. We should converse!' ...Well, from there you... Converse! It's fun. I promise. We don't bite.... Well, I guess I shouldn't speak for everyone... But it's okay, you can't get rabies via the internet. :P
So this is just a place to be like 'HEYYYYYY. This is meeee and if you find me remotely interesting we should find a convenient way for us to communicate and be friends'

aand next thing you know you'll have NerdFighter friends in Canada and the US and Sweden and the UK and... other places!

Public Power in the Age of Empire (nonfiction) and I can't pick one fictional book! I really like LOTR, Harry Potter, and pretty much anything by David Levithan or Francesca Lia Block.
8. what is your favorite Brotherhood 2.0 video?
Probably "How Nerdfighters Drop Insults". I almost fell over laughing the first time I watched it!

1. hobbies?
Climbing, camping, backpacking, caving, bouldering, guitar/banjo playing/writing, going to Raves and dance parties, poi/glowstringing, fire spinning, juggling, chess,

2. sport(s) you play...?
Climbing is a sport. You can't really lose (unless you're at a comp), so I wouldn't say I play it, though.

3. what other vlogs do you watch?
Dont

4. are you big into politics?
I have some pretty radical beliefs, but I don't often talk about them unless asked. I have no problem talking about what I believe and why I believe it, but I don't often burden people with conversations about things they'll probably disagree with, or not know how to react toward.

5. are you looking more for a pal to chat with, or some big discussions?
It's all good. Little chats pass the time, but you can learn a lot about someone from them. Big discussions can also tell someone a lot, but they're also how you learn about yourself.

6. your age [so you can find someone you might have more things in common with ei. school, jobs etc.]
21

7. what is your favorite book?
The Razor's Edge, by W. Somerset Maugham (pron. 'mom')

8. what is your favorite Brotherhood 2.0 video?
Blenderized Happy Meal. That was effin gross.
I have no nerdfighter friends. I wish I did. I need more friends. So if I sound interesting, send me a message and maybe we can be penpals. That would be great!

1. hobbies?
Let's see. I love to act and sing. I regularly participate in community theatre shows. I like to play video games. I really enjoy reading, but that's probably because I'm an English teacher and a nerd. I am planning on beginning to play D&D with my husband because he really enjoys it and I have never done it. I'm actually pretty scared about it.
2. sport(s) you play...?
I don't play sports. I learned at an early age that I am horrible at sports. I am much better at creative things.
3. what other vlogs do you watch?
I don't really. I need to though. I'm just always so busy because of work. Teaching doesn't leave you much vlogging free time.
4. are you big into politics?
I find it interesting. I like to talk about it. But I'm not one of those people who is gung ho into it. I think everyone is entitled to their own opinion, as long as they can back it up.
5. are you looking more for a pal to chat with, or some big discussions?
It doesn't really matter. I'd like to get to know someone who is different and stuff. I like meeting new people, so it really doesn't matter what we talk about as long as we talk about something.
6. your age [so you can find someone you might have more things in common with ei. school, jobs etc.]
I am 25. Married. I have 2 dogs and a cat. I live in a house. And I teach high school students the finer points of literature for a living.
7. what is your favorite book?
I don't know that I have a FAVORITE, but I enjoy the Wheel of Time seires by the late, great Robert Jordan as well as the Kushiel series by Jacqueline Carey, the Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris, and the Queen Betsy books by MaryJanice Davidson.
I only just joined this site, and would love to make some nerdfighter friends :)

1. hobbies?
I LOVE to read (Harry Potter and Twilight being two of the favourites - I'm fairly predicable :P); I have a big interest in langauges and am currently in my first year studying Linguistics at uni; I like to watch people on Youtube (goes without saying, really); I like watching anime and cartoons like South Park... and I like drumming, but I don't own a kit :(

2. sport(s) you play...?
Not huge on sports overall, but I really like swimming. And badminton is cool.

3. what other vlogs do you watch?
Ifancythetrio, fiveawesomegirls, hayleyghoover

This is hard, um, Denver Airport...Via Isengard
Ooh, this looks interesting :D

This is tricky. Probably a tie between Harry Potter 6, Looking for Alaska, Jurrasic Park and Catcher in the Rye
8. what is your favorite Brotherhood 2.0 video?

I am up for having a penpal. It seems fun!
1. hobbies? writing, reading, playing piano/guitar, Harry Potter

No Problem, Things not seen, Anna Karenia, The average american male, On the Road, Just to name a few...
8. what is your favorite Brotherhood 2.0 video? Also very tough... Any when they are talking about books, the vacation ones are prett good. I also enjoy any of the punishments, John waxing his chin never gets old, and of course, Accio Deathly Hallows.

As for a penpal, if you like Harry Potter, you're golden in my eyes.
