It's always fun to laugh at behaviour that would classify us as a geek or some variant. Be it video games, comics, movies, anime, manga, etc. we all have done something a little ‘Over the top’.

Me, it's hard to pin down anything, but the closest I can come up with is that last year, I had a choice between two types of medication. One that meant I couldn't go out into the sun, the other meant I'd have to get a lot of exercise. I chose the first so I'd have more time for my comics. (Starting to get myself off it though)

You guys?

Downloading comic books. Actually sitting down and reading hundreds upon hundreds of back issues to Spider-man while my girlfriend and her best friend were at the house.

Man I feel stupid for doing that, but those books don't read themselves!

And I can't thank you enough for all those Tank Girl comics man ^_^

For me… Getting the biggest post count here. I nerdified myself irredeemably in my eyes by that act.

Hmm..
Having lengthy conversations about Terry Pratchett and World of Warcraft at work. And I mean discussing item stats and things. It's usually followed by an argument about whether or not the next Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie is going to be awesome, or just good.

Beating up people who slag off Pokemon. And a frequent quoting of internet meme and ‘lol’.

I think..it would have to be..cosplaying Tifa Lockheart, and actually punching a dude during a photo-op.

But he asked me to punch him. I punched him with the camera-facing arm the first time, so he asked me to punch him again so the camera could get my face.

Ah, good times, good times.

Hmmm… crying because a role play character died. That was something like 5 years ago, but since I needed to grieve for a fictional character, I guess that tops even my wearing the Indiana Jones hat. Hehe.

well.. I guess the nerdiest thing I would had ever done was when I used to play everquest when I was in high school in a manner where I was REALLY INTO it… one time I played it for so long that when I logged off I was talking just like my role playing character. “I have to go to the great library of Bismarck! I've got to level up my chemistry knowledge as well as my mathematics skill, for the Homework Quest!”
I'm on hitatus while I redo one of my webcomics. Be sure to check it out when I'n done! :)

I make bizarre jokes and references that most people don't get, except that ONE person in the back of the room who busts out laughing, and everyone looks at ‘em like they’re a freak.

I live for those moments.

That and I started getting into art to better draw my D&D characters because I was tired of relying on Morrowind screenshots, I guess that's pretty nerdy too, hahaha! :D

Well I read Warhammer 40,000 fan fiction, though it isn't acctually fan fiction it's from the black library so it's official or something. I don't know. Anyway it's fun reading about the Horus Heresy.

I am going to read ALL the Discworld books by Terry Pratchett. And when I'm done, I'm gonna read them again in the correct order.

If I go to a movie made after a book I've read I complain about EVERY SINGLE THING they change. I hated Eragon and all the Harry Potter for example. Though I do like the LOTR movies.

I am a DM in DND and a player in Vampire the Requiem.

I play computer games like I'm getting paid for it. Sadly, the knowledge on how to speedrun through Half Life will not get one laid.

Also, avid D&D guy, right here.

Dude, D&D is so fun. you earn +10 in charisma for playing.

Nerdiest thing lately…I don't really know. I've had whole conversations revolving around quoting Charlie the Unicorn. “shun the non believer! Shhhuuuunnnn.” Heheh.

I got another one.

I based my final english essay on ‘Jump’ and ‘Culture Shock’ (Though I wrote it as though they were novels) along with my own book, Fatum Chronicles. Before then, I have used Bad Guy High, Least I Could Do, Ultimate X, Elijah and Azzu, Questionable Content (Made a new title for that one though) and I even used The Gods of Arr-Kellaan and She Who Destroys Light in a history essay where I had to referrence modern culture to parts of history

I used to be able to memorize and quote John Hughes films. Especially The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Weird Science, and (for some strange reason) Uncle Buck. I don't know if that qualifies for being nerdy or psychotic.

I've said lol before. Hmmm, another time we were forced to run in P.E. and I felt myself pressing spacebar (AO) to run. Then, only a few days ago, I felt like a sim all day and when I would try to goto sleep or eat, I could feel my bar going up. I've also cried of loss of games, characters (mine or NPCS), or serious threats of destroying my consoles. (or getting rid of) Then..I've developed a crush or two on certain characters. Oh yeah, and for my writing assignments for school, I always write a fanfic of a game. .-.

I remember lots and lots of quotes. Most of them from Oscar Wilde and Douglas Adams.(in the beginning the universe was created, this made a lot of people very angry and was widely considered to be a bad move.)

I can recite scenes from lots of movies by memory.

I hear ya on that. I have that happen whenever I'm asleep, and that's usually when I dream about being in some video game or something. I also had an huge crush on fro-lou from breath of fire VI (because I love how much of a pretty boy he is, and how kickass he is), one on Clavis from Angelique an japanese dating sim for young girls…mainly because he was the most dark, broody mysterious guy in the whole game. Also, it was really HARD to get an love ending with him… I wanted to get that one ending with him but kept on failing at it so I kinda became obbessed with him for a little bit. ^^;;

when I was in high school PE, I often wished that I could cheat at gym by casting an levitating/flying spell on myself and just kinda float like one inch off the feet and just will myself to move forward fast like I was running, so that I could rest my feet. lol

that, or have an teleportion scroll on hand so that I could be elsewhere instead. I could even visualize it in my head vividly like it could happen. man, I hated gym so much… my gym teacher was a real asshole.
