Hashtag of the week: #weaponsoftheleft
You guys got any good ones?
Arugula. A nice peppery Zinfandel.
Libraries. Spicy brown mustard.
I am behind this hashtag all the way. Even if I’m not on twitter.
The @RealTimeWWII Twitter account is tweeting the events of World War II as they happened 72 years ago. A sample tweet Friday:
Germany has announced (again) that it will respect the neutrality of Belgium & Holland; “No German troops will enter the Low Countries”
Be warned: if you’re a good-looking lady who uses social media and you call yourself a nerd, this Tumblr is going to call you out.
Hot Chicks Misidentifying as Nerds is a Tumblr courtesy of Katie Notopoulos and it documents the instances where pretty girls (judging from their avatar and profile pictures, anyway) try to claim that they too are super nerdy. Problem is, it seems no one has ever explained to these ladies quite what qualifies as a nerd.
Now much has already been written about hot celebrities who publicly claim to be nerds (sorry Megan Fox, I’m still not buying it), but at least those faux-nerds actually know which nerdy obsessions to claim to like.
However, the ladies of Hot Chicks Misidentifying as Nerds are definitely missing the mark. I don’t care what you look like — liking Ugly Betty or actually doing your homework doesn’t make you a nerd.
