If we’re going to play top that nerd factor, I guess I should join in. Though, for the record: I got dates in high school, was quite popular, was voted some flattering things in my yearbook and so on. If you think I’m bragging, you’ll understand that I’m pointing out this stuff to offer some counterweight to this nerd factoid of such density it can bend light:

I have a permanent scar on the inside of my left thumb from the “reverse” button on the “Defender” video game — which I played at Pizza Park on first avenue everyday after school for hours and years.
