    Most people don't know I'm into the nerdy stuff. I guess I don't come off that way.

    Weird, cuz I just gave a speech today on the Transformers Fandom.

    On the podcast network I host a geek show on, another show once pulled me on for a special appearance because they found one of those random "Japan is fucked up" images and had me explain it, knowing I was the resident otaku... bad thing was I did figure out what it was.

    People stopped asking me shit at work. I would always give them a smart ass answer that would give them the answer in a long drawn out way.

    Neophytes in military hardware/history, Ultraman lore and Transformers lore tend to approach me as an information resource.

    What? Was it that bad? Hmm, I am going to ask for a link to the show; I am curious. Unless it's not board-safe, then forget about it. I am not that curious.

    Computer-illiterate people think I'm a genius.

    Truth is, I just know how to find fixes by Googling the problem.

    80's rock and pop. I don't even know why I know it all.


    This board could quite possibly be the greatest conglomerate of useless knowledge ever accumulated.
