What is the nerdiest thing you do without shame?

For me, I openly discuss random scientific trivia (mostly acquired via VSauce) in public with my friends. People think I am such a nerd but it makes me feel smart.

Also I play guitar hero on DS in public as well as pokemon. Low volume. No shame!

My cousin and I regularly talk about skyrim lore and gameplay.. Every time he comes over, it's like a skyrim bomb went off. We love our video games.

Your cousin sounds like someone I know haha. X)

Well, does discussing Pokemon with a friend count? ._. I'm not stupid enough to talk about it with people I don't know as well, though. Then again, that might not qualify because of the "without shame" part of your question. Heck, I still do my best to keep my family from knowing that I play Pokemon. I:

Uhh.. I guess cosplay! I make all my costumes from scratch and like to talk sewing and nerdy costume-making stuff with people I meet at conventions.
I work at a games company.. I guess that's pretty nerdy isn't it? NO SHAME!

I mean, I guess playing Pokémon in public at work? I don't really know. I don't view that as nerdy or anything, but other people do. I wear superhero shirts, but I don't view that as nerdy either. I think that's cool.

I played Silver on my bright green GBC in class one time. I've dressed as Ness on normal days when going to school. I openly correct people about Pokemon if I hear them being inaccurate. I quote random games and such in public...lately it's been Abridged Series stuff. My phone background is totally not Joey Wheeler. I've worn my pink Yoshi plushie backpack to practice, as in I kept it on my back while marching. I used an Oshawott plushie backpack as a pillow on a bus ride.

That's all I can think of for now.

I openly play both new and old pokemon in my halls, in my classes and just generally in public around campus. I go to a tabletop gaming society, where I play Magic the Gathering and was part of a DnD campaign last semester. I will openly point out errors to people I don't know if they're talking about a game I play, mostly pokemon. I play trading card games in public areas around university and have spent my break in school looking up card prices in the staff room. Chances are I will always have a set of D4-D20 dice on me.

The only thing I'm really missing from the list is LARPing, but that's too much effort.

I talk about Pokémon all the time at school, literally. However, I'm not too open on it unless it's around people who are into it as well. I have also talked about Yu-Gi-Oh! to a few of my friends as well and I am sorta open to some about memes as well, but only to those who understand the concept of memes (there are many at my school who don't).

I openly correct ignorant views on China. I also criticize heavily critical views as well. I know I'm Chinese and that would be rather nationalist and shameful, but still...

I wear vague video game/anime shirts out in public. That's about it, really. I used to play Pokemon in school but people thought that was awesome.

Play pokemon in public... wear a spiderman hoodie to work and around daily. lol My license plate says GEEK CVT (certified veterinary technician) and I also have a horde symbol (world of warcraft) decal on my car and a license plate frame that says "My other ride is a chocobo". I work with a lot of women who are not nerdy at all so it makes me feel infinitely more nerdy there... but all my friends are my level of nerd or above so not so much around them. :3

Aside from sprouting complex processes that make up the universe to my friends(which hardly listen to reason at all), I watch My Little Pony Friendshipnis Magic which I downloaded in my computer.

I wear my Super Mario shirt pretty often, I have a Pikachu hoodie that is comfortable as hell that I wear all the time, I also just bought a Puella Magi Madoka Magica shirt a couple weeks ago that is insanely comfortable and I plan to wear the crap out of it!

I bring my 3DS Xl, DS Lite, and GBA SP to school and work all the time to play between classes and on my breaks and stuff. My friend got me a 10" Oshawott plushie that I had to carry around campus all day once, I had no problem with that :p I've watched MLP: FiM on my laptop in the cafeteria before too.

I really like decking out in nerdy stuff when I go out, you never know if you'll meet someone who enjoys the same things or not.

My new friendship group consists of a 19 year old, a 22 year old (me), a 23 year old and two 24 year olds and we have regular Pokemon nights. We had one last night actually - we played from 6pm until 3am.

Other than that, I guess the nerdiest thing I've done recently is travel an hour by train with the same friends to get an event Meloetta, and buy a pack of Pokemon cards from the supermarket lol

I play Pokemon in class and I have a Captain America phone case, but I just think that's awesome instead of nerdy.
I have memorized certain Shakespeare verses to recite, so I guess that's pretty nerdy too XD
