if you’re somewhere dark and scary and you think ‘this feels like the first five minutes of supernatural or a horror movie’ then start walking like a dinosaur for no apparent reason. because no-one in the first five minutes of supernatural or a horror movie would start walking like a dinosaur for no apparent reason.
The ultimate survive tip
Nogitsune Stiles is intrigued, yet aroused.
I had a really small period and I was like “maybe I just miscarried a tiny fetus” and then I realized I haven’t had sex since Columbus landed in the Americas
I realize this sounds like I fucked Columbus. I want to clarify. Just so there’s no confusion, I did. I did fuck Columbus.
I suffer from that syndrome where your neutral expression makes it look like you’re a angry serial killer
I Want My Nerd HQ 2014
Nerd HQ, a free four day event in San Diego offering celebrity panels, exclusive gaming and tech experiences, while raising money for Operation Smile
Here’s how the campaign works.
The "I Want My Nerd HQ" Campaign is very simple. We need your support for Nerd HQ 2014. The funding strategy we have been using to produce Nerd HQ is no longer viable due to venue deadlines and the commitments required by the Nerd Machine to properly plan the event. We wish we could continue to subsidize the event ourselves, but we simply no longer can. We believe in our hearts that YOU will help to ensure Nerd HQ can continue to offer an amazing FREE experience for fans in San Diego, fans watching online, and all the children we are able to help through the funds you contribute during Nerd HQ for Operation Smile. To date, the Nerd Machine has raised over$415,000 dollars for the charity.
You have a powerful voice and the Nerd Machine needs you to use that voice and let the world know you support this campaign, whether you can contribute or not. We love and appreciate you either way. We believe that everyone is nerdy about something, so please tweet, post, reddit, and email to get the word out and help us produce the greatestNerd HQ ever.
Please note that Nerd HQ is not affiliated with San Diego Comic Con International. Nerd HQ is planning to held at Petco Park at the same time as the convention.
This part is very important. We want to make it very clear that the money you are contributing for Nerd HQ is not going to charity. The funds raised here will pay for the production of Nerd HQ in San Diego this July. 100% of the money raised by the “Conversations,” auction items, photos, and signings will continue to be donated to Operation Smile. In 2013, Nerd HQraised $215,000 for the charity.
Production costs include venue, staging, production crew, event lighting, video, audio, staff, security, and activations. These costs are very expensive and every dollar you donate will make a difference. It is up to YOU, to help us make HQ happen. We will continue the search for sponsors in order to make the event the most amazing HQ ever and bring you, the fans, the most dynamic ”Conversations” and the newest in gaming and technology. Not to mention the most epic nights Nerd HQ has ever seen.
Nerd HQ, the best perk we can offer.
We understand that a lack of a perk structure is a rarity, if not a brand new concept, for a crowd funding campaign. However, we believe, and hope you do too, that Nerd HQ itself is the best reward we can offer. Nerd HQ brings you twenty-five plus hours of “Conversation for a Cause” content, live-streamed to everyone, FOR FREE, no matter where you are in the world (some restrictions may apply based on country.) The physical event in San Diego is COMPLETELY FREE for everyone to enter and enjoy. AND, we throw the most epic dance parties for both fans and celebs, again, TOTALLY FREE. In fact, the only things that cost you money at Nerd HQ, aside from all the charitable activations, is Nerd Machine merchandise and the food & beverage that you may buy while enjoying the festivities.
On top of that, perks cost a great deal of money, time, and labor to produce and fulfill. If we offer perks like tee shirts, posters, or even special access at Nerd HQ, then we have to ask for even more funding from you to cover those costs. No physical perks means we can put all the money raised toward making the best Nerd HQ to date, and bringing it to you FOR…wait for it…FREE!
What we CAN offer you is your NAME on the "Nerd HQ Wall of Honor," that will be on display at Petco Park. This wall will be used to commemorate your victory of making HQ a reality. Each and every contributor will have their name printed on this wall. We will also place your names on the Nerd HQ contributors page at thenerdmachine.com for everyone to see. No hierarchy, nothing based on your contribution. If you give $5, your name could be next to someone who gives $500. We are all in this together.
Most importantly, for your contribution, you will receive our eternal gratitude, loyalty and our pledge to bring you the best Nerd HQ ever!
For those who have experienced our event, you know how amazing Nerd HQ is. For those of you that have not, we simply ask that you go to our YouTube page and watch a few “Conversations.” We believe these amazingly unique and inspiring panels will give you all the reason you need to support our cause.
Why is Nerd HQ important?
The Nerd Machine’s Nerd HQ is important to us because we know it is important to YOU. It is an event for YOU, by YOU. Fans make Nerd HQ what it is and they always will, this year more than any other. YOU are the heart and soul of everything we do. Since 2011, we have done everything we could to provide the most amazing and unique fan experience outside of the convention center. Attendees always say that Nerd HQ is one of their best memories ever and we want to create more of those memories with you. There are so many opportunities to meet new friends, connect with old ones, and have a personal interaction with the biggest celebrities in Hollywood. Fans around the world get the chance to watch amazing panels online that are only available from Nerd HQ. Hundreds of thousands of dollars are raised for the charity we support, Operation Smile. Fans worldwide are able to experience Nerd HQ through tweets and posts by Zac and the Nerd Machine as well as the thousands of fans and celebs in attendance. All of this ONLY continues with YOUR SUPPORT!

Each panel is packed with curious and excited fans asking meaningful questions, anxious to learn more about their favorite films and shows.
Nerd HQ 2013 highlights also included Tom Hiddleston’s impression of a velociraptor, “Doctor Who” actor Matt Smith and Jenna Coleman jumping on stage to surprise “Game of Thrones” star Richard Madden during his panel, and Stan Lee dropping by to take photos with fans at one of our awesome photo booths. The excitement continued with Nerd HQ’s energetic and fun-filled after-parties for fans and celebrities alike. A Thursday Night Fan Party gave everyone the opportunity to mingle, play games, and dance the night away with all of the nerds in town, all for FREE. The festivities continued on Friday, when Nerd HQ hosted the hottest party of the weekend: The NERD Party. Saturday night included the amazing screening of "SERENITY" on the field of Petco Park.

You either die a hero, or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain.
They are all okay, and all those things could exist in the same woman. Women shouldn’t be valued because we are strong, or kick-ass, but because we are people. (x)
