I went to see the new Harry Potter movie with my girlfriend the day it came out. I got SUPER pumped during the Green Lantern trailer. In the end of the trailer, Ryan Reynolds says "In brightest day, in blackest night.." aka the first part of the Hal Jordan Green Lantern oath. I was saying it along with him and thought he was going to finish it. Instead, the entire theater heard me yell "no evil shall escape my sight. Let those who worship evil's might, beware my power Green Lantern's light!"
I knit during cutscenes. So far I've made mittens while replaying Twilight Princess and a scarf during Black Ops.
A couple weeks ago my girlfriend realized I wash my hands every time I'm about to touch a comic book, but not every time I put in my contact lenses.
While watching an episode of That 70's show, I was infuriated to see that they used a Lionel Toy Trains model 6-14091 Operating Gateman as a prop as a Christmas gift. Lionel didn't make an operating gateman between 1966 and the mid '90s. The model 9-14091 wasn't introduced until the early 2000s. The sad part is that all I saw was half of the box and didn't need to look any of this up.
I work in Portland, OR, the strip club capital of the world, and I DJ at two of the most well-established clubs in the area. Last week, I managed to make it through an entire shift (six hours) playing nothing but songs from GTA: San Andreas, including break/buffer tracks and the occasional ad. Not one person noticed.
I was a sniper for nine years in the Army, with three tours in Iraq. Now I go to college. Some kids in class asked me about sniper missions, so I started telling them some stories of the shit I did. Suddenly some douche bag pipes in about the badass head shot he pulled off in Call of Duty: Black Ops to one-up my story. It worked. Suddenly he was more badass than me in the eyes of all the other students. I've never played Call of Duty: Black Ops, but I hate it above all other videogames now.
The other night my boyfriend and I were out drinking with some friends. We came home early to have sex, but ended up playing Magic: The Gathering until we passed out instead.
And the "I Can't Even Decide What the Nerdiest Thing About this Sentence is" Award goes to:
The theme from Jurassic Park was the first song I learned to play on the accordion.
A Pwn My Life PSA:
The Pwn My Life e-mail address is not the place to let Dorkly and Collegehumor know how pissed you were that we did some nerdy thing inaccurately. I really don't care that 10 of you were angered that Prof X could control Juggernaut through his helmet in Hipster Superheroes.
