It’s been a banner week for nerds:
A “science” nerd purchased a deconstructed alarm clock on EBay and brought it to school for show-and-tell and couldn’t figure out why everyone freaked out.
Even Bill Maher came down on the side of the school saying “People at the school thought it might be a bomb … because it looks exactly like a f*cking bomb,” thus proving definitively that even a broken clock is right twice a day.
Political nerds got into a macho “fist fight” at the GOP Mackinac Conference. (H/T to journ0list nerds covering the story: it’s “Mack-in-Naw” not “Mack-in-Nack” Island)
And then we had our own nerd celebration right here on MOTUS: UpNorthLurkin’s nerd tutorial on how to use simplified HTML tags to make magic in your
Left arrow symbol, forward slash, i, right arrow symbol
i = italics
b = bold
u = underline
For Bold, the letter is b, For Underline, it is u. Everything else (symbols) as just above
To "close" whatever you're trying to do.... use the < followed by the / then the "b", the "i", the "s" (without the quote marks) and end with the >
OK everyone? Got it? <i>text you want in italics</i> It’s really nerd magic! And for her super-nerd skill at training the MOTI in nerd magic Raj has prepared the following award which I now proudly present to UNL:
Congratulations UNL! You’re Geek of the Week - as determined by MOTUS’ head nerd and geek extraordinaire, Raj. Sorry, all decisions by the judges are final and not subject to review or recount. And here’s your medal: wear it with pride, you earned it yourself, nobody else did that for you.
And not to diminish your skills in any way, butt I should point out that there’s another nerd out there with impressive skills too: Grace Jones. She has nerd skills that have enabled her to live for 5000 years. Of course, the way things are going, some of us might consider that more of a curse than a skill.
I am MOTUS, and I reassemble deconstructed reality in order to reflect it back to you. What’s your nerd skill?
