I know I'm a nerd when I rant on someone for calling the imperial walkers at-at instead of AT-AT.

I'm a 32 year old currently wearing Iron Man PJs while commenting on how big a nerd I am on a comic web site at 1:10 am, also I named my daughter Lexi in honor of Lex Luthor. You may judge my nerd cred from that if you wish.

I think you just know lol. Heck just being into comics pretty much makes you a nerd. I am so nerdy that my friends get nerdy just by association. My roommate freaked out because she heard somebody talk about Green Lantern and she knew who they were talking about. Lol. My influence.

@Redmonkeyssj4:

I think about comic characters all the time, impersonate them, buy comics about them, watch videos about them, know so much things about them that you could fill an encyclopedia with all that info, wear stuff that has their picture and make Christmas cookies that look like them.

But no, no. I`m not a nerd...

When you drop close to a thousand dollars in about 3 months time so that you could buy a sh*t load of comics. Also when you spend about the last 4 months watching all four seasons of Heroes (just for the fun of it), re-watching all 7 seasons of Doctor Who to prepare for the Christmas Special (technically the last 7 seasons, since the show has been around since 1963), watching all four seasons of Torchwood (just for the fun of it), watching the latest season of Dexter, watching the Dark Knight Rises on Blu-Ray about 5 times since I bought it, watching the latest season of It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia, watching every WWE pay-per view and Monday Night Raw, plus watching who knows how many other movies and TV shows throughout that time frame, plus making who knows how many references to comics, movies, and TV shows that no one else but me gets, and still finding the time to sleep, hang out with friends, spend quality time with the family, train my a** off, and work! That's how you know you're a nerd!

IF you have an account on Comic Vine, have posted more than 20 times, are passionate about any of the categories on this site and are currently posting on a thread entitled, "How do you know you'r a nerd?"...if you fall into 3 out of 4 of these categories...NERD!

When you hear that a porn parody of a character is being done and consider it an insult to said character.

Well since its related to your AV, when you rant for one hour to your best friend about how Bad the M.Night's live avatar movie was, and how it sh!t's on the legacy of the animated series after she said "it wasn't a bad movie" :P
