I'm just gonna quote a Tumblr post I made not long ago:
"Because I am a liberal and a traditionalist in so many ways, today, even though I’m already a Nerdfighter, I’ve decided to declare that in the old rituals (ie. the way Hank suggested it back in Brotherhood 2.0).
Though my nerdiness/geekiness manifests itself in myriad ways, I’ve racked my brain to declare my special charism, that special gift I have that makes me quintessentially the kind of geek I am.
Therefore, I hereby declare that I, Maxwell Waters of Nerdfighteria, am a Nerdfighter, and a Nerd of Philosophy. I also put forth the following lyrics for the Song of the Nerdfighter (to the tune of Hank’s 3/14/07 Nerdfighter song):
Systems of logic are what I crave,
I’m a philosophizer by night and day,
From law to theology I apply this creed:
'Consistency in postulates are what I need.'
We’ve got big thoughts, that use big words,
And all these thoughts are gathered into one big herd.
It’s confusing and/or annoying, to hear us speak,
We are quite pedantic and we’re detail freaks,
But if you ever need a little helpful advice,
Our wisdom might just help you with your worrying plight,
So come on and join me in a life of thought,
It doesn’t mean you have to leave your booze or your pot,
What it means is foregoing a thoughtless life,
‘Cause knowing what we’re thinking is a guiding light.
DFTBA, best wishes."
(Bonus points for changing the double-quotes to single-quotes?)
Anyway, I'm Max, nice to be on the forum, too bad we're not in my pants.
Hello Maxwell, and welcome to the Ning! :D
I'm not of good musical stock, so someone's gonna have to play these lyrics for me to enjoy them :p
As usual, DFTBA!
I am Jaimie, I'm supposed to be writing a discursive essay on freedom of speech right now buuut I found this wonderful form of procrastination :D
Hi there Jaimie, and welcome to the Ning! :D
So, how'd you find this particular outlet for procrastination? :p
Welcome to the madhouse!!
Hey Nerdfighters! I posted to this thread yesterday, but i guess maintenance started before I hit submit...I'm a Whovian who's also into Jesus, and I have a propensity for (or is it to?) wearing newsboy hats...
I have a YouTube channel...I still haven't learned the art of the under four minute video yet, but I'm working on it...every subject i mentioned earlier is kinda what my channel is centered around...so if any of that interests you give it a gander...or what ever bird you chose I'd appreciate some nerdfighter support! If you comment on any of my videos saying you're a nerdfighter on any of my videos I'll give you a shout out.
If you're in Shreveport contact me via the internet cause I wanna know if you exist lol
Hello Sam, and welcome to the Ning! :D
How'd you discover Nerdfighteria? :)
As always, DFTBA!
Found the vlogbrothers on YouTube about a month ago, and was like "Hey there's people like me in this world!" haha
Oh yes, Mister Cooper, we are EVERYWHERE.
I'm Roxie. -waves- Whovian, Jedi, original author, fan author, and champion nap-taker. Also sometimes I'm a raptor. My profile picture proves it. I recently got sucked into nerdfighteria against my will when I kept searching for advice on how to start a vlog and the Green brothers showed up every time.
I watched my first video either two days ago or last week, I'm not sure. I figured when I started losing time it was time to take a dive into the community.
Hi Roxie *fistbump back* , and welcome to the Ning! :D
I take it you usually write sci-fi, yes? :p
Yep, and urban fantasy. xD And occasionally blog posts about nerdy girly stuff, Doctor Who, and Whovian nerdy girly stuff.
