MORE RE NERDFIGHTERS

I suppose that I should have explained the whole Nerdfighters thing a bit more. So I will, especially for those who haven't read the comments -- including mine -- on my previous post. If you have read those comments, you can probably skip the following, as it's largely a matter of "copy & drop".
My old pal markiv1111  said, "...I don't get it, either as a joke or 'not a joke' -- not at all clear what this is all about or why it matters." Following is my reply, expanded a bit:

I stumbled on 'em on YouTube. Started by two (quite nerdish) brothers. From their YouTube site :



Hank and John Green, Brothers for over 27 years, decided not to write to each other during all of 2007, and instead make daily video blogs.
Though the project "Brotherhood 2.0" has now ended, they decided to keep updating the YouTube channel at least once a week. Additionally, the community of nerdfighters that they helped create is now stronger than ever, and lives at:
http://www.nerdfighters.com


The term "Nerdfighters" is a bit confusing. The concept is not to fight against nerds (heaven forefend!), but to be "Nerds Who Fight".  "Made of Awesome. United against Suck."
As someone who has spent his adult life proudly, via thought, word and deed, telling folk that I am a nerd/geek/spaz/foureyes/dork/egghead/dweeb/... , I thought this was kinda neat, so I signed up.
Buncha fun people -- they're, well, sorta us , in a way,.
