Nerds Proving They Do Not Understand Concept of “There is a Time And a Place”
So I stumble onto this article about how a few guys in NYC are practicing Jedi skills. They meet up and do meditation, yoga, and actual lightsaber fighting. That is actually a pretty cool way to get some exercise and to make friends, I do kendo for the same reasons. The issue I have is when you read the article and realize these guys don’t understand that there is a time and a place for everything.
From whipping out their swords and swinging them around in a Starbucks, how much more of a social hand grenade can you get. All I am saying is that if people, nerds in particular, want to be accepted in society and not laughed at, they need to stop that shit. No going to dinner parties and talking the rule revision for 4th edition D&D. No wearing that Penny Arcade shirt to funerals. Hell, people would stare at me wearing full bogu at Wal-Mart, hence I leave it to the dojo where it belongs. All they are doing is hurting all the other Star Wars nerds who know how to balance their obsession and life. I don’t want to have to hide my addition to collecting miniature Jawa figurines. They are soooooo cute!
