Scouts General Chat


Shukar

Recommended Posts

Alright Scouts. I don't know that we've done a General Chat thread before so here goes. Got something to say that's not related to a specific challenge but just needs saying? Looking for someone to talk to, random advice, just got something to get off your chest? The Scouts are here for you, and often also in IRC. Let the conversation be opened, and the miles be ever in your favor!

"I must not fear. / Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing......Only I will remain."

 I'd quite like to have a crack at one sometime too. Not this challenge though - busy, busy - just wanted to put my hat in the ring for some future challenge... I had a scenario roughed out during the last challenge but was too slow off the mark and it's still sitting in Evernote waiting to be resurrected.

Thanks for the offer! We will keep that in mind when we start planning the next one!

If a Scout feels the need to just chat,

There's a thread where that chat should be at.

The point of this post,

Less important than most,

Is merely subscribing to that.

This is awesome! 

 

I am curious, and since I trust my fellow Scouts most, could someone please give me a title for the following description.

 

I consider myself a "nerd", because I like "nerdy" things.....Star Wars, LOTR, some RPGs, etc.  The problem is, I am not as knowledgable as other "nerds" about these things.  I get lost sometimes in some of the things discussed on this site.  Through context clues and a little "looking up" things I am able to keep up. 

 

Just wondering what someone like myself is called in the "Nerd Community". 

Élan Scout Level 2STR-5, DEX-4.5, STA-8.25, CON-1.5, WIS-3, CHA-2I may not be there yet, but I'm closer than I was yesterday.

You're still a nerd. You don't need a sub-title! 

You're every bit as awesome as someone that can recite every line from StarWars or any other thing you mentioned!

Don't you ever forget that!

I'd guess we're all like that in our own way... expert in some things, casual fan of other things, total newbie in others still.  For example, I know a lot about word and math games and puzzles; a fair bit about Star Wars, Star Trek, and LOTR; and next to nothing about recent (post-2000) video games.

 

Anyhow, playing off the term "casual fan," maybe one can be a "casual nerd." :)

I was thinking something along the lines of "Quasi-nerd", or something of the likes.
