Upsetting Nerd Fraternity 101
« on: May 05, 2006, 12:02:53 AM »
K so at uni I'm studying to be a primary teacher. But cos I like games and stuff I decided to do a few multimedia units. Alot of the otehr students are doing Games Tech as their major.

Anyway the unit has a very active message board to complement the class and I just act like the little bitch I am, upsetting them all. It's the best fun ever. I've found a few things nearly always hit a nerve and get them going. And here I'll share them with you.
Call WoW players losers.
Openly deride Firefox
Claim that opensource software are cheap imitations of better products, placing emphasis on Linux.
Explain that no one could give a damn about flash animation.
Champion iPods.
Show great enthusiam for anything that isn't games, graphics cards or anime.
Suggest that someone mustn't have attended the lecture if they didn't know simple facts.

The last one really get's people going, nerds must be the only demographic that thinks it's cool to rock up to lectures.

So which of these offends any of you? I'll rub it in for you

Openly deride Firefox, but only because it's a dumb thing to do :P

I hate those flash pages with the repetitive music and wallpapered backgrounds, only someone with autism could find them remotely funny.

oh VITAL for our make a website project. Theres all these whinging nerds crying about how they wont be able to put in all their flash animations because of the 4MB size limit.

Openly deriding Firefox is easy these days too. Basically Opera is better in every way except ease of use. In fact I think Firefox gets worse with every release, Mozilla runs faster than it these days.

Wait... that's 100% true, right?

I think 'ease of use' is a big deal, don't you?  But yeah, none of thsoe things are very offensive to me personally.  I only champion Firefox over IE, so no harm, no foul.

How is Firefox easier to use? Just because it's an IE clone?

Obviously you're not a nerd Athrun! Seriously you wouldn't think how protective and panicky the nerds get over these. Especially the flash one. I though everyone was in agreement that flash and animated gifs were annoying NOT THESE GUYS! VITAL FOR INTERACTIVE WEBSITES APPARENTLY!

If you want to get nerds upset just do one of two things.

1. Praise Microsoft products.  or
2. Say you prefer the Special Editions of Star Wars.

Though I'd like to point out the irony of a bunch of guys posting on a videogame forum making fun of nerds.

Ian: 18 Days isn't a guy so it's okay. I mean, Birdos should be allowed to have some fun, too.
