Hi everyone, I wanted to open this thread out of sheer curiosity. How may of you think of themselves as "geeks" or "nerds"? I know for once that I consider myself (and I have been considered) a nerd, for my consumption choices and nerdish hobbies. I am a big comics buff, MTG and RPG player since many many years ago, but I always felt somehow on the margin of nerd culture because I was never so much into videogames, nor I was ever so much into all the otaku stuff that seem prevalent these days. I also have to say that I have been very lucky, inasmuch as where I grown up, all of thse activities were pretty common among every teen-ager, so I never experienced bullying for that (something I think, for people from the US, must be pretty different, or it is just a cliche from movies and tv series?). You could say that, at least in Europe and from my own experience, my generation (born at the start of the nineties) was the first to be able to openly enjoy all this stuff (we started playing DND at the beach during summer vacation and fter a while every kid oon the beach wanted to play, from 10 to 17 years old, as an example of this) without being ostracized. I am curious to know a little bit of your geek/nerd passions and hobbies, and maybe have cool advices for new comics or rpg to try out.
