Here is a confusing thing: at some point in time, whoever controls fashion trends decided that glasses and mom jeans were worthy of being incorporated into that Byzantine trying-to-get-laid dance known as “the youth culture.” As a result, it’s now nigh impossible to tell who gets shoved into lockers regularly and who just likes Animal Collective. (The nerds, meanwhile, have become the new jocks, what with controlling the world and making billions off your personal info and all. But I digress.) In honor of these topsy turvy times, I challenge you to tell the difference between various hipsters and various ’80s movie nerds. Answers are at the end. No peeking, spaz! More
Holy shit, you guys! President Barack Obama is hanging out with Lieutenant Uhura from Star Trek, and he’s giving the Vulcan salute! Your many years of interest in geeky things have finally been vindicated. More
Hey, nerd! Yeah, you with the glasses and the twenty-sided die and the…other things a nerd likes. If you admire the sensitive portrayal of human relationships seen on The Jersey Shore and wish there was a show like that for you, you’re in luck. More
My high school was a Catholic private school, where the religious kids were the most popular and there wasn’t much of an arts scene. I was agnostic and into geeky things, so I didn’t hang out with the popular kids. Little did I know, however, that we were virtually the same people! Or so CollegeHumor says. Their new video “Religious People Are Nerds” makes several scarily-logical arguments, like how both social groups get fanatic about their beliefs and take their rules from bearded men. More
The same Croatian cello duo that brought you that amazing cover of “Smooth Criminal” is back, and this time they’re tackling Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit.” “Smells Like Teen Spirit?” you say. “I’ve heard that song so many times I’m not even sure I like it anymore. Nirvana had other songs, you know.” I thought the same thing. But trust me. It’s good. More
Last week we introduced you to an original essay from author Jill Kargman, whose new collection, Sometimes I Feel Like A Nut, comes out February 1st (that’s today! Buy her book!). This week, Jill picks up where she left off on the topic of hot, nerdy sex.
Sex With Nerds Pt. 2
In later years I made the same mistake, falling for other studs, known around campus for their good looks, skills on the field, or on the stage. But then I met a former nerd, or should I say recovering nerd (like alcoholics—you never truly break free) who doted on me with such a magnanimous love that in a way I was ruined for all other alleged cool cats. He lost his virginity to me and was so incredibly emotional and devoted and poetic. I know what you’re thinking: uh, yeah, and he probably was an anal astronaut and wanted to take it in the seat, but NO! More
Nerds v. Jocks: The eternal battle. The concensus for many years was that nothing was hotter than a guy who played sports and belonged to a prestigious fraternity. But as emo boys became the rage and a bevy of charges lobbed against certain Greek houses made us wary of going to the campus’ hottest Halloween parties, we wondered if geeks might have finally won the war on novelty wear. Below, pics of dude cosplayers (the nerdiest of the nerds) along with photos of some hot frat boys in their underwear (which seems to constitute the majority of their costumes). Which do you think are hotter? More
Jennifer Wright, deputy editor at Crushable’s sister site TheGloss, rails against Cosmo’s latest service-y article on why we should date a nerd. Why? Because he’ll fix your computer problems! He’s SO grateful to have sex with someone like you that … More
