Nerdy Lifters' Corner

  1. Wow! All of these responses made me remember a few things.
    1. How did i miss pokemon!? I still play it to this day. Currently playing yellow version virtual on the ds
    2. My pog career was short lived. :/ kid down the street owned me.
    3. I had a huge 3 ring binder with all my x-men trading cards. More than half were stolen at school one day and i never recovered them.


  2. Wow cool thread.

    I no longer consider myself a true gaming/collectibles nerd, given I now have zero collectibles. I sold a Yi Gi Oh deck for near $500 and that was the end of it all. When i was younger I used to collect magazines and comics of all sorts, play the MMOs of the day (runescape, WOW etc). I still have a sega megasystem and ps1 but that's about it.

    I still play a games from time to time, BF1 mostly or the remastered skyrim if I have more time to kill.

    Still a huge book nerd, and read 1 journal article per day, and 2 if I have the time. Starting using my work commutes to listen to podcasts and lectures.

    My gf thinks I'm the weirdest person on earth... My idea of "fun reading" on vacations: medical journals, studies, and other scholarly articles haha. I have a kindle thats literally nothing but scientific fat loss studies and books.

    I'm with you guys on the med articles lol.

    Back when I was trying to figure out what was going on before the pituitary tumor was found and none of the docs I saw had much urgency, I would pick up medical textbooks that I found on sale lol.

  6. Haha it is, according to my friends anyway. Over new year a group of friends and I were playing touch on the beach and one of my friends was surprised I could play well, given that I read in my spare time lol.

    I find I have a good balance between sports, gym, DIY and book knowledge to keep me from being compartmentalised into any one thing, it's just funny what others think of you

    Very funny what people can assume

    Doubt people would guess these BB guys to have serious nerd collections at home, but the AM community proves itself awesome yet again

  8. I agree with @Jiigzz I'm like a jack of all trades. I could dress up for comic con and feel at home. I could go and play a pick up game (any sport) and play well. I am a big DIY guy. Right now I'm learning woodworking. Just built a lazy Susan for my kids shoes and I'm about to build some benches for the front porch. That I built
    I love to read. It can be anything from Tolkien to the latest bb article

    Upvote for BF1/Skyrim lol

    And I really want to start listening to podcasts/lectures on my commutes. I have a VERY lengthy drive ahead of me (UK to Italy) at the end of next month, so I could use some recommendations on sports science/training lectures and podcasts.

    A few Halloweens:



    Marv seems the most appropriate for this thread, but he is accompanied by Stone Cold Steve Austin, Carl Spackler (Bill Murray) from Caddyshack, and Detective Angel Batista from Dexter.

    Not pictured are Chris Pratt's character from Jurassic World, out of work Ron Burgundy, Red Foo from LMFAO, and Axe Cop.

  13. That angel Batista costume is on point

  14. @drive2lift, I heard your interview on SuppTalk last year, excellent show

  17. I'm not really nerdy anymore, back in the day I was huge in to Pokémon, still have red, blue, emerald green, and another (fire red?) somewhere.

    Handful of years ago I sold my yu-gi-oh card set for 500+ dollars, put the money towards a guitar haven't looked back.

    I still play my dads old original game boy games, I'm in love with radar mission. By far one of the greatest games ever. Then there's nemesis (believe that's what it's called, been a while with college).

    Used to play spyro (the little purple dragon). I have all the games from the PS1 to the most recent PS3 game. I used to sit down and play it with my dad when I was younger. Miss those days a lot.

    A while back I dabbled in WoW, wasn't really my thing. I prefer games like Kerbal Space Program, empire total war etc now. Recently picked up castle story off steam, good game to kill time on, needs some work tho.

    Can't forget Skyrim, and Battlefield. Still play those from time to time but I don't have next gen tech so I can't really play much more. Just cant afford the upgrade being in college.

    Oh yeah can't forget about minecraft and terraria either...

    I play a lot of board games that are Harry Potter or LotR based. Though I play a lot of board games in general tbh. Except monopoly, my family would probably kill eachother if we played that... But that's about it for my nerdyness. I geek out when talking about supplements and the gym with people tho.

    I spend more time reading about gym related stuff than I do studying for college. Can't help it, it's just enjoyable. Most people can't read through journal studies or lab reports but I kinda like them. Guess that's why I became a personal trainer, just enjoyed talking to people about the gym.

    As for collections, Calvin and Hobbes decorate my room and my laptop wallpaper. I change the wallpaper to match with the seasons... I have every single Calvin and Hobbes book known to man that I could get my hands on when I was younger. Same goes for The Far Side Gallery and Dilbert...

    Lego set collection as well, mostly Star Wars but also some mars stuff and TONS of castle set stuff from a castle series legs did. Just picked up a collectible Beatles Yellow Submarine.

    Other things that adorn my room walls include 3 glued together picture mosaic Peanuts puzzles. An old callender from 2013, a tag wall (take tags from stuff I buy and pin it up there, includes Corona, coke, Pepsi, alpinestars, tags from places I've been, Star Wars tags from shirts, Harry Potter tags, and many more).

    I also have a huge Star Wars collection of books and logo sets with Star Wars colectable bookends (3751 out of 5000 made).

    You have any good Bioshock stuff? I went so far as a tattoo over that game

    Neither of us really played much Bioshock when it was released but it's on our list of "Games We Need to Play"

  20. how did we all forget legos? @ChocolateClen bringing maybe the greatest treasure of all time into play!

    To this day I would (and most likely could) build anything out of legos. When I was like 6 I build a fully functioning gun (complete with moving slide and cocking hammer) that would actually shoot other legos out of it. And this was before all the fancy new pieces they have and motors and such. Just blocks, a few special pieces, and some rubber bands ha. My mom knew I was destined for an engineering career after that one.

    I actually never used those...

    Lincoln longs were the **** tho. I used to take the small logs and make little cannons out of them by stacking one on top of the other, and then making army guys charge the cannons were they would all end up dead because my cannons were accurate af

    A lot easier to source parts than I thought, if you are after a vintage one

    Westside Barbell Podcast. Louie Simmons is crazy, and he talks at 100mph to keep up with his thoughts, but he is a true warrior. That mf'er has forgotten more stuff about strength training than I've learned.

    If you learn nothing, his ferocity will still inspire you to train harder.

    Hopefully to get some more nerds to step forward
