I am a nerd. Or, at least , i think I am. One can never be too sure about these things and I would hate to lie to my-self. Lying to you, however, is something I would NEVER do.
While being a nerd used to be a pejorative, it is now 2013. And in 2013… okay scrap that. I have no clue what significance 2013 has on why being a nerd is now okay. But what can I say? 2013 sounds like the “future”: that magical place where things just seem to work out; or at least I think it sounds profound when I say it.
What I’m really trying to say is this: all the things nerds used to get laughed at for doing are now socially acceptable.
Quick side note: For all you nerds out there… No! no one cares how extensive your porn collection is. Of course, I don’t watch porn (just…. throwing that out there)
Why am i a nerd? FUS RO DAH!!!… (Ahem, uhh forgive my outburst there. For a moment I lost sight of the aim at hand.) Because I read Fantasy novels and play games. Those are nerd-like activities right? Socially inept as I am, I can never tell.
Anyway, to continue: If you play any games online, you have encountered people who do every thing but play the game how it is supposed to be played. This propensity to be annoying is what we call -in colloquial terms: Being a bitch (pardon my french). After dealing with people like this, you may suddenly be in need of extensive psychiatric assistance.
(And, just in case you were wondering. No I am not misogynistic nor am i throwing stones at women. This is a universal term.)
In more contemporary terminology we call (being a b**ch) Trolls. For those of you who like to play devils advocate, ( or honestly just don’t know). These aren’t the type that live under bridges. Though – I must admit- If they did, the internet would be a much better place – hypothetically speaking.
The game I play most these days – due to bandwidth restriction – is LOL.
Let me take a moment here. For the minute members of the human population who do not know. LOL does not mean laughing out loud; it means League of Legends. (although it can mean laughing out loud as well)
To cut my mental meanderings short. I play a lot of LOL/League of late. If you are familiar with this game, you would know ‘Tis the rift from whence Trolls emerge’. If you aren’t familiar with this game….Umm
What are Trolls? I am ecstatic you asked! Imagine, playing a game and in it there is this one fool; whose sole aim is to ruin your day while sitting at his desk squealing in girlishly sadistic tones of delight. In essence, a Troll is someone that does something solely to piss you off.
I don’t know the general reactions to Trolls. Aside form spontaneously combusting into paroxysms of rage. However, my reactions are all cerebral.
By which I mean I create improbable mental scenarios so that I may satiate my emotional dissonance by way of phantasmagoria images ( generally violent).
You may have noticed my previous statement seems precariously verbose. You did? Good! So did I.
Trolls are so wide spread lately, it has dawned on me: There are professional Trolls. People who have nothing better to do than make someone else’s life difficult. Dependent on your social influence, you may know them as haters. But lets not argue semantics.
I cannot understand the mind of a Troll, but I can attempt to demonstrate my hypothesis on the purpose of their existence. I will attempt to do this by way of a parody of a popular Hip-Hop song. [Brothers] in Paris. If you must know Its actually “N word” In Paris, but I would hate insult anyone’s sensibilities.
So here is my Magnum opus for this post – Besides the post of course.
I call it: Bitches In LOL

Well, by you know you can tell I am not a Rap artist; but you get the drift. If you didn’t, you can always …ahhh Umm-. Okay, honestly, if you didn’t get it I failed as writer.
Actually, you and I both know I don’t believe that, and we wouldn’t want to start lying to each other now would we?
