I might be wrong... so tell me if I am, but does jokes mean cool? :P

yes and no.  yes it replaces the word cool meaning 'great/fun/funny/fantastic/nifty,' and when John Green first proposed using it, he had (jokingly) suggested it could replace it when talking about temperature, but the point from the beginning wasn't just to have an inside joke (pun intended) but to actually be subversive, to take something intended as an insult and make it awesome.  it also works well in this way for nerd(fighters) as we usually aren't cool meaning popular.

Hey nerdfighters! I was just introduced to John and Hank a month or two ago and am now watching their videos in roughly-reverse-chronological order. I'm a pretty heavily-computer/math/science-nerdy type guy, but I'm also a huge softie. I'm hoping Nerdfighteria is the place for me, but I'm fairly sure it is. If you're around Denver and have too much spare time, so do I!
Hey~
I am in love with Physic. I spend most of my time finding random videos on youtube and watching sci-fi :)
So glad I have become a nerd fighter!
Well yush, I'm glad to be here. Ciao :)
Hola!

My name is Austin, like the capitol of Texas, not to be confused with Austin, Indiana.
I'm a pretty new Nerdfighter; I've recently gotten into John and Hank's videos about two or three weeks ago, but believe me, I've literally been watching them nonstop. I've actually been a fan of John's books longer than I have of his videos. :)
Other than that, I'm rabid about this band called Coldplay. Anyway, feed me kiwis, iCarly, and John's books and I'll be happy for an eternity.
Looking forward to talking to each and every single one of all the wonderful, beautiful, and lovely Nerdfighters out there!
Austin
is it terrible of me that the part of your intro that stuck out most for me was 'feed me kiwis, iCarly, and John's books?'

Hi, I'm new here.

 

I am a political-economist and an advocate for electoral reform.

 

I hope to stimulate more debate on how we may tend our garden thru the use of 3-5 seat PR in "more local" elections and IRV in "lsess local" elections and ideas for revampting the Electoral college for our least local election the presidential election.  

 

There's a big correlation between what sort of election rules are used and what sort of political system we have and so we need to major on changing the election rules to be a better balance between single seat and PR, cuz otherwise the system tends to tilt to effective single party rule, which is why it's so hard for the two major parties to cooperate currently: Both are gunning for perm majorities...

welcome Megan
Hey everyone! My name is Louis and I have been a Nerdfighter for a few years. It is a pleasure to finally join the ning!

Hello fellow nerdfighters! Through the grace of stumbleupon, I discovered John and Hank's videos a week or so ago, and have been working my way through them.

Let's see, I'm a science (psychology) nerd, who's really into reading and video games as well. Figured it was about time to join the nerdfighters on here!

'the grace of stumbleupon' ...i like it.  and welcome.  seen much of the site so far?

Been randomly watching Frank and John's videos but haven't really subscribed until recently... reading through some comments, nerdfighters had been mentioned several times so did my research and found this site... been trying to catch up on what this thing is all about and I am liking it so far...
Anyway i think its time for introductions.

1. I love Knowledge, Math, Science and Computers so I work as an IT professional and spend most my time on the net. I find it difficult to live in a world without the www. :)

2. As a self-proclaimed "Otaku"/Nerd, I'm addicted to Music and Movies as well as Anime and Manga. I also am an avid PC Gamer so I often spend money on upgrading my PC parts.

3. I am a sucker for nature, travel and discovering and experiencing stuff so I often go Hiking, Scuba Diving, Rock Climbing, Kayaking, Spelunking, etc. with some of my not-so-nerdy friends. (Was inspired by The Bucket List to pursue and try to experience these stuff and I eventually developed a craving for adventure!)
4. I am also fascinated by humans so i want to meet a lot of different people no matter the media. I am hoping to meet a lot of interesting people here. :)
