Nerdfighter Collab Book

As a community lets collaborate and make a book. So many nerdfighters are brilliant authors and this would be a great way to both give them a helping hand, some recognition and maybe even raise a little money for charity.

Decreasing Worldsuck with Therapeutic Arts!

Hi Nerdfighters,Remember when we all voted for the Harry Potter Alliance, and they won, and it was awesome?Well, this is a lot like that.If you're already sold, click here.  If you want my pitch, read on:When I was a teenager, my first job was working at an arts day camp.  The camp was run by a woman named Janice Ling, who wanted to introduce children to the kinds of art she loved to do (stained glass, painting, Chinese brush work),…See More

Emmet's Blog

This started as a comment on John's blog...

...but I decided I should also post it somewhere where perhaps it would be seen by more people.

I don't have any answers about this. None of the question marks below are rhetorical. Let's talk about this.


I recently read this article on the additional barriers often faced by queer folks in trying to leave abusive relationships. I was aware that it was an issue, but the severity of the problem… Continue

Surveys are cool if you stole them from John Green, right?

Type your name into Google with the verb that comes after in the question. Answer with your favorites from the first page of google results. Have fun!

Q: Type in "[your name] needs" in the Google search.

A: "Emmet needs Ma's washtub" (It could certainly come in handy.) / "Emmet Needs This Shirt. If his mother loved him, she would get it for him. Edit: Emmet's mother earnestly claims that he already has such a shirt." (Usually if I feel an intense need for a shirt, it's because… Continue

your response to nerdfighters concerned about a "rival" Christian group was calm, rational, and well reasoned. thank you for being a voice of reason in an otherwise chaotic world.

Hello Emmet. Since you are both a "Radio Drama Nerdfighter" and a "playwriting nerdfighter" would you be interested in helping to write the Nerdfighter's Radio Drama?

My friend is Mel Madden (and after some quick facebook chatting, she discovered that she "knows"/"knows of" you). Um, I'm not sure of all the extra curricular programs she participates in, but I do know she's in Gumdo.

And she was not at all happy about the cut backs in the German department. Not at all.

I'm not studying German (however, about 60% of the people in my life study German, so I'm starting to think maybe I should pick it up :D :D :D); my major is business.

No, but I have a very good friend that goes to Mount Allison! I was thinking about transferring to Mount Allison from the college that I'm currently at, but I also switched majors and Mount Allison does not have a strong program for my Major.

Dear emmet, (<--I don't know why I'm starting out my post like this, I just am)

I was going through my friends list (because that's what odd people like me do at 3:40 in the morning) and noticed that "Sackville, NB" is a place that you have listed as place you are from. You don't, by chance, happen to go to Mount Allison, do you?

"LOVE YOU FOREVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER" (<--haha? Get it? 'Cause the whole reply post and marriage and 'friending,' yeah... Stopping.)

Working everyday with kids is probably the most joyful, most difficult, most exhilirating, most exhausting, and most important thing a person could choose to do with their life. I see it as a spiritual calling. If I can assist you in your journey, consider me to be at your service.
