They’re those people who look, act, and think a bit differently than everyone else.
More often than not they try their best to choke down their nerdy tendencies, doing what they can to fit in with the status quo but never truly finding the level of happiness that comes from following their true nerdy potential.
Meanwhile, others let their nerdy freak flag fly. In the face of naysayers surrounding them on all sides, they shout “I’m here! I’m a Poindexter! Deal with it!”
And when those nerds steep up to the geek plate and hit a dorky home run, society benefits in all sorts of ways, from science, medicine, and inventions to TV, movies publishing and the arts.
These people aren’t just nerds.
They’re true nerd heroes.
A new feature on the Bookshelf Battle Blog – Bookshelf Q. Battler, one of those geeks who lets his nerd flag fly, is seeking out nerds, geeks, dweebs, dorks, spazoids and various and sundry poindexters who’ve defied the odds, vaulted over the hurdles, pulled an Ace out of the deck stacked against them and in the end, achieved true nerd greatness.
True Nerd Heroes. Nerds who have earned their place in the Nerd Hall of Fame. Nerds who, when their time comes, will have the doors to Nerd Valhalla swing open to them.
