The Daily Hotness: The nerd brain

It’s funny how different a nerd’s brain is compared to other people. You start to see weird stuff in your everyday life. Like just the other day, I saw a lady leaning against a pole. My mind instantly thought of Custer’s Revenge and, well, you probably know what I thought of next.
