    Im glad I have a life away from these nerds who are obsessed with this kind of crap! I have no idea who most of these people are!

    So because you don’t have the same hobby as someone else, they don’t have a life? I have a very busy and fulfilling life and I am very excited for this weekend!

    The people my girlfriend has met at these events are amazing. If she is a nerd for going to these events then she can keep going as much as she wants.
    Just cause your not into it doesn’t give you the right to say such a shallow comment, I feel for you bud

    Kevin is just a wee bit insecure. I’m sure he has realized his bully power ended in grade 9 and now works for us geeks! Pay day Kevin.
