Well helloooo there. I'm ol' Aresem, we all know that, and I'm a nerd (we also know that)

You can find me all over the pleasure end of the nerd spectrum, which is basically everything but academics.

My biggest, wink wink, nerd trait would have to be my love of the supernatural. I'm into superhero comics, paranormal sci-fi, and all the forms of fantasy flowing out of Tolkiens grave. I'm big into gaming, computer or tabletop, and the second you mention dice I'll be rolling up character sheets.

That's me in a nutshell, you'll figure the rest out as you go ;)

I'm Diabolical_Jazz, but you can call me Jazz, Elliot Pending, Patrick Dovetail, Peter Winterborne, or just about anything you'd like.

I'm a nerd because I have intense enthusiasm for things that other people find boring.
Primarily, I am interested in music theory and tabletop gaming.
I often deconstruct songs for fun,
And I've read the rulebooks for whole bunches of tabletop rpg's. Many of which I've never even played. :lol:

I also enjoy console and computer gaming, although to a lesser extent.

I'm stackcollision. I'm bored so I made an account here.

I'm a nerd because I spend all day staring at this: http://i.imgur.com/ZQ514.jpg
I also play a weekly Star Wars tabletop game with some friends of mine.

In my free time I've been working on a hard-scifi spaceflight simulator for about a year and a half. That's what it looks like under the hood.

Here's what it looks like with the hood closed:

Hi, I am Chukkz, if you insist you can call me Chris but I react to anything (Hey you over there!)

I like games, I am something of a musicnerd (anything from classic rock over new wave to techno) and I like looking at (and occasionally making) pictures.

So yeah. :3

Hello everyone. It's nice to meet you all! I'm commonly referred to as Mami, Switzy, or that random person in the background. My qualifications for nerdom are pretty simple and straightforward. As a child I was taught to play tabletop games such as Dungeons and Dragons but as I grew older I drifted into more risky nerd things such as anime, history and Xanth novels. I also have one more common nerd trait often known as lack of social life (no friends whatsoever), so I hope to get along with at least some of you. I spend most of my time these days making videos and MEPS so if your into that please do share.

WOW I am sorry for the super long Post!

Hello Steel, you can call me Flippy. :)

It's great to have you here. ^__^

And long posts are encouraged, I'm sure I speak for most everyone when I say it's a great starting point to get to know someone.
