Last weekend I went to a book signing with my roommate. I'd never been to a book signing so agreed to go with him to check it out and figured I can usually find something entertaining to read in a Barnes and Noble in case I got bored. The signing was for a fantasy series 'Wheel of Time' so I was expecting it to be flooded with nerds. When I arrived I was surprised to see that everyone seemed normal. Just regular guys that happened to be fans of the series. That was until I got involved in a conversation with a guy who was talking about a William Shatner signing. This is basically what he said: "So I got up there and told him I had named my kid Kirk after Captain Kirk. He gave me this look like 'Oh, one of those guys' but I smoothed it over. I told him I want my son to embody the same moral compass and personal integrity that represented the character." Translation: I want my kid to grow up to be Captain Kirk. Then another guy started talking about how he named his kids Perrin and Eowyn. Another guy started complaining about how his wife wouldn't let him name their cat Nynaeve. I really didn't know what to add to this so I just excused myself to the bathroom. Not like it was awkward or anything. Focus: What is the lowest form of nerdiness you've ever seen? Bonus points if you did it yourself. Alt Focus: What is acceptable and what is going too far?
