I really love pretty much all things science as well.
What nerdy things do you still enjoy/are still obsessed with from when you were a child?

Oh lord this made me re-evaluate my childhood and now I'm not sure if it was alright or if I actually repressed a lot of it. I never noticed anything bad but now that I look back I was often alone and finding things to amuse myself with, I remember friends but not much of my time spent with them, I have more memories spending time alone doing stuff like catching bugs, but now I think maybe that's just what I did because people didn't want to hang out with me.
Aaanyways I was very disappointed that I wasn't very passionate about things, even as a child, mainly just caused mischief. But I used to love and still enjoy fireworks and video games. It would be nice to put on one of those big firework shows one day, like one at new years eve. I literally can't think of anything else I liked as a kid, aside from breaking things and starting fires lol.
Thanks for the MHO ☺️
The Halloween town movies. I have a strange attachment to those movies they’re my absolute favorite.
Blue Teletuby calls me the “Six Foot Dinosaur”. I also love dinosaurs. Lego too. I kind of used all of the important pieces so I can’t make anymore. I just make them on LDD now. I’ve also been drawing all my life
If you wanna see all the other lego dinosaurs I’ve made, there’s posts in my profile of them. They’re all called something like “which of these 5 do you like the most”
As a mega nerd myself there is very little that I won't geek out over.
I'll still re watch Avatar: The last Airbender at least once a year.
I quote lines from Starwars and Lord of the Rings every 5 seconds.
And I spew out philosophy lessons from Star Trek
My love for these things has turned me into a nerd since my childhood. I played a Halo and watched Star Wars as a kid but didn't know much past the games or movies. Now I just soak up anything about those universes like a sponge.
Lego, although I don't play it so much anymore.
I also enough playing Sims on my phone, although it was very different from now.
well video games definitely lol.
i still eat things kids eat too like grilled cheeses mac n cheese pb and j sandwiches, chocolate milk.
I have even uploaded a few, like:
Honestly, everything I loved as a kid I've outgrown. As I got older, all my interests changed.
i love yugioh cards. they are so strange and filled with no theme whatsoever; you never know what you are going to get when you open them.
I like to buy a pack and come up with a story of how they all fit together in a world or story
I don't know if this counts as nerdy but I still really love the movie "The Prince of Egypt"
Been heavy into gaming and anime since I was a kid and definitely never grew out of Pokemon lol
Star Wars for sure
Would you be willing to answer some of my questions please? :)
Just anything I posted :)
Nothing from childhood now, which is actually good. My childhood sucked.
These ain't nerdy, your choices are wonderful 🙂
Im pretty sure my inner child is dead lol
Star trek, star wars , halo...
I still like playing video Games.
imagining I have superpowers
Oh so that's what Women are calling it nowadays? Lol!!!
@Interstate What? 🤣
Fucken dude at the zoo hands me a fossil and 8 yro me is all "neat, what's this?" "Utahraptor coprolite" 8 yro me "wait I don't remember that bone name?" "It's a turd." I dropped it, kicked him in the shin, and grabbed my mom crying. I was a terrible kid
@420Rachel 😁 👍
Still love Harry Potter series
European history although it has evolved a bit. As a boy, I was fascinated with European knights and folklore from the dark and middle ages. I saw those men in armor on horseback as well as like Gothic German plate armor in museums that looked like they belonged to Arnold Schwarzenneger and I thought they looked like machines with flesh inside.
This is in spite of being born and coming from Japan. I wasn't so fascinated with samurai and ninjas and the like compared to the feudal European counterparts. I also much preferred the German plate armor that seemed to belong to bulky men over 6-feet with menacing spikes on them. I didn't like the much prettier and fancier French and Italian armors I saw in museums that seemed like they could almost fit me as a boy.
So I started out with a fascination with military technology in those feudal times. These days, it has evolved to include things like cooking and what peasants and nobles ate during those times. I also became a lot more interested in the origins of Western civilizations like ancient Greece and Rome, so it's a lot more detailed and overarching than my mere fascination with huge guys in menacing armor beating each other over the heads with huge weapons. But I'm forever a geek of this type of history.
What was popular with boys my age at the time that was similar was mecha stuff, like Gundam. Yet for some reason I didn't like Gundam and these types of things. I liked the idea of a 6+ foot tall man with huge muscles riding a massive horse and swinging a battle-axe into some poor guy's skull. It seemed far more violent and dramatic to me.
I loved dinosaurs as well but I didn't imagine them accurately as a boy. I went to a museum where, over our heads and close to the roof, there was a spinal column of a gigantic dinosaur. I forgot what species (maybe titanosaur) it was but its spinal cord was so enormous that I imagined it like a dragon hovering over us and crushing us like ants. It made me feel like an ant to be squashed, and somewhat similar to seeing the massive German armors and the weapons they wielded. They made me feel very mortal subject to be crushed and killed at a whim, and I liked that feeling.
