Film at 11: The First Nerd  
On the extremely slim chance that seventy-five other people on your Flist haven't already linked this, I give you John Hodgman, and his tribute to the First Nerd President of the Modern Era:

I feel: amusedamused

I hadn't been linked that before. Great stuff, especially about the Constitution.

Yay! I'm helping!

And, yeah. As both a systems scientist and an occasional freelance RPG designer, when he started talking about the Constitution in a nerd context, I thought, "Oh my gods, it's a GAME MECHANIC."

Probably influenced by last week's XKCD.

Actually you were the first of only two people I watch to post this, but I watched it last night. I wanted a good link to it, so thank you. :)

I couldn't stop laughing. The Dune part especially with the inhaler...

Although some of the stuff about jocks and nerds sort of makes sense and may explain some stuff. :)
