Nerds? NERDS!

Came across this little gem on the LiveLeak feed. I believe it's some sort of live-action Dungeons and Dragons out in the woods with grown-up geeks. TSO will be able to confirm the validity.

From now on, whenever you go out on the town, you have to shout "lightning bolt!" to get slow-moving gawkers out of the way.

That wasn't painful to watch. Much.

Shortly after this was filmed, the participants dressed up as Klingons and attended a Star Trek convention. Although, as much as it pains me to say it, this makes Trekkies look mainstream.

What's more ridiculous yelling "lightning bolt" or "bang bang" when I've lost my M16 blank adapter?

Speaking of nerds, I could probably view that video if the old man wasn't hogging the computer with hour 5 of his Command and Conquer game.

Adam...Bang Bang is more embarrasing. Much more. Sorry.

Get away from me! I'm playing Doom! Who are these idiots? Don't they know how to play a real game?

Ms. K,

How dare you insult COmmand & Conquer, which is definitely cool unlike the above posted video. See if Mr. K wants to set up some online play, I'll bring the Cheetos!

I'm not saying it's nerdy per se. I play really awful games. I'm saying 12 hours a day of it is nerdy. I'm sure he'd love to play with you. I'll let him know.

I think it's bang bang, because you get tired of saying it and it comes across as such a bland non powerful sound, and plus when you say lightning bolt, you get to say lightning which is kind of a cool sounding word, LIGHTNING

I am amazed at the amount of chicks there...I bet Mr. Lightning Bolt got laid after for killing the thing with his powers...that one girl clapping made me laugh the most...

It's funny how saying these people are sick is ok, but say the same thing about fags, and you are a bigot. Neither group is "hurting anyone" right?

LT Nixon said...

OGD,

I don't know if anyone said "sick", I just wanted to call them a bunch of uber-nerds.

You just found this? My friend, you have been missing out on an entire world of derision worthy geekdom to mock.

Google "larp" and "magic missile" if you want to see similar parents'-cellar dwellers in full LARPitutde.
