     Hello everybody, although you might or might not define me as a full fledged nerd, I suppose I could be a nerd by some standards. I will tell everybody some stuff about myself so everybody can decide just how much of a nerd I am.

 

     I grew up with Star Wars and have always been a big fan. I am also a fan of Star Trek, Doctor Who, Indiana Jones, James Bond, Lord Of The Rings, and I used to play Dungeons and Dragons, I still do mostly on the computer with games such as Baldur's Gate. In my opinion one of the best things in the world including sliced bread is Photon and hence that's what my screen name is based on. Photon was, I suppose you could say, a live action video game. You were actually in the video game. It was the first laser tag sport where you run around with laser guns and zap your opponents to rack up points while trying to avoid getting zapped yourself. Photon was really big in the 80s but sadly it died down towards the end of the 80s and during the 90s it fizzled out. 

 

     Now, I know nerds are often if not always associated with getting good grades in school. Although I am a relatively smart person I didn't always get the best grades so Im not sure if that would disqualify me from being a nerd. I did go to a really hard private school so getting good grades there would be much harder than it would be at your standard public school. 

 

    I am a martial arts fanatic, a weightlifter, and a gym jock. Part of the reason I didn't get the best grades, I was spending more of my energy in the dojo and in the weight room than I was on the books. I am also a big fan of the Philadelphia Eagles. It was awesome when they beat the Patriots in Super Bowl LII. I was in Philly at the time and it was crazy. I am also a fan of the sitcoms Perfect Strangers and Big Bang Theory. I've got nine seasons of Big Bang Theory on DVD. Some of the funniest moments in my opinion are when Howard and Sheldon are at each other's throats. 

 

    I know that Planck's Constant is 6.62607004 but I only know that from watching Stranger Things. 

 

    I am also a particularly nice guy so I am hoping to get to know the people here and make friends.

 

    Peace out.

So do I qualify as a nerd? As I said I didn't always get the best grades and I am into sports.

I'm one of those physically abled secret nerds too.

I've gotten confused looks more than a few times when I start ranting about Star Wars fan theories or rambling about who knows what.

If you do nerdy shit you're a nerd as far as I'm concerned.


It is perfectly acceptable to fear and admire a being you could not possibly understand.

Well in that case, Fly Eagles Fly!

 

I do need to get more Star Wars paraphernalia. I've got some of the lightsabers but none of the shirts, got lots of Eagles paraphernalia though.

Eagles are a good choice, obviously. I'd love to see them live.
