I was in my health education class, and we were talking about radiation and what it causes. I had just gotten Fallout 3, and 'I Don't Want To Set the World On Fire' was playing in my head. I started singing it to myself. Then I realized it had suddenly gotten very quiet. I looked around everyone was looking at me. I've never been more embarrassed. But then one kid jumped up and shouted "Oh man! Fallout 3!"
Everyday when I wake up I do one of the basic moves from each of the bending disciplines from Avatar: The Last Airbender just to see if I've miraculously learned how to bend.
I get annoyed whenever spellcheck underlines the name of a Pokemon, so I've been constantly adding them to the dictionary of my spellcheck so I wouldn't have to see it.
A long time ago, after having recently watched the fusion episode of Dragon Ball Z (where Goku teaches Goten and Trunks how to fuse), I got my best friend to do the fusion dance with me. I taught him all the moves and we had lots of practice. When he was finally ready, we did the fusion dance in the playground at school. I know I did it perfectly but when I realized that it didn't work, I thought that he was to blame. I went into a rage and we had a fight over it. I still think he messed up.
When Final Fantasy VII came out, I pre-ordered the game from Toys-R-Us and got a free FFVII t-shirt. I wore the shirt and brought the game manual to me with school the next day and, of course, I was incessantly mocked. Then, as I was reading the manual during P.E. class, one of the most popular kids in my school (who usually acted like a thug/bully) came up to me and started talking to me about the game. His dad had bought it, and we struck up a friendship talking about videogames. Never know who's gonna be a closet dork.
