Rants - NOT NERDY ENOUGH?? - YouTube I saw this today which inspired me to make this topic. Obviously we're all Transformers nerds because we're all on this web site but at the end of this video he asks what's something nerdy that you hate. So I'm curious, do people who all like the same thing (Transformers) also hate the same thing? A few ground rules first because I know this is going to spark some debates. 1. No flaming. This topic is about opinions not facts so do not under any circumstances call anyone an idiot or any other name just because they don't like the thing that you like. 2. You have to post something nerdy you hate before you can start commenting on anything someone else wrote. If you can't contribute to the topic first then you can't debate anyone's opinion who has contributed. This rule is in place to hopefully prevent the topic from totally derailing. 3. Any debate that does start can not be more than a page long unless you contribute to the tread again then you can have another page and so on. Again this is to prevent the topic from derailing. 4. Contribute something nerdy you hate or get out. To elaborate on this, read 2 and 3 again. I think the top of my list of things people geek out over that I hate is Lord of the Rings. The entire plot revolves around a single ring which the characters are fighting over to use it's power which it's never quite clear what it's power actually is or trying to destroy it. So it's like all the worst plot device heavy episodes of Transformers combined only about 100 times worse. And it has a really ugly dude running around the whole time in nothing but a skimpy loin cloth. I can't relate with any of the characters, the villain seems to be an eye ball on a giant tower. I just don't see what's so great about it. I think anyone who can spell, or at least use spell check on a computer, can write a better story than that. The worst part is it never seems to end. I mean it would be fine if that were only the plot of the first book or something but no it goes on forever. Just destroy the ring already so the only thing driving this poor excuse of a story can finally end.
