Nerds like us are allowed to be unironically enthusiastic about stuff…. Nerds are allowed to love stuff, like, jump-up-and-down-in-the-chair-can’t-control-yourself love it. When people call people nerds, mostly what they’re saying is, ‘You like stuff.’ Which is just not a good insult at all, like, ‘You are just too enthusiastic about the miracle of human consciousness.’ -John Greene
