The Nerd Badge is invalidly valid, therefore I get one

Lee posted his “Nerd badge” score recently. He failed to get it, and rightly so. Not because of any lack of nerd-dom on his part, but because of the idiocy of the test.

First, two rumors I hope are false… This first one I’m pretty positive is false, but here it is: apparently some bookies in the UK are looking for something to bet on (World Cup and Wimbledon not enough for them?), so they’re saying that since the current season of Doctor Who didn’t pull in the… Read More »
