I'm currently dealing with a Decepticon at the building at school where I do my workstudy. The only argument he keeps bringing up is how stupid the name Nerdfighter is. He knows it's a joke from the misreading the Aerofighter game, but he just keeps saying how it sounds like we fight nerds and how we should be called Nerd Defenders while Decepticons should be called Nerdfighters. I try to tell him that it's not like that at all; that we fight for nerds, but he's too stubborn. I told him I would find some videos to show him to prove my argument, but I can't find the video where John, I think, talks about freedom fighters and how they fight for freedom, not against it.
Can anyone give me the link? As well as any other useful videos or anything to use in my argument?
Well, here's my favorite general overview of stuff that I use when introducing new people to Nerdfighteria, and they explain why a Nerdfighter is a person who fights FOR nerds: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FyQi79aYfxU
I'm not sure exactly which video you're looking for, but I suspect it's from the first year of Brotherhood 2.0, and probably pretty early on in that.
Also, if this guy's so stubborn, he probably won't respond well to solid logic or hard facts; I would guess that he's just continuing to give you a hard time in order to get a rise out of you. If this is the case, you might be better off avoiding the subject of Nerdfighteria in general with him--as long as he knows he's frustrating you, the more he's going to hold his ground. If he insists that Nerdfighters fight against nerds, then the simple fact of the matter is that he's wrong--which he's welcome to do--and the discussion need not go any further.
Anyway, I hope the video above will help!
I'm pretty sure the video you're talking about is this one:
Hope its what you're looking for :)
