"Nerds like us are allowed to be un-ironically 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 too enthusiastic about the miracle of human consciousness'. "
- John Green
