Have you ever been on a dating website?
Sometimes you read profiles where people say they're "really into nerdy guys/gals." But what they generally mean is they're "really into gorgeous people who just happen to be wearing plastic frames in a photo."
So you take a chance and meet them and they're strangely not enthralled by your knowledge of Ruby on Rails or how you organize your books by color (ROYGBIV) or how you know the difference between the Elvish and Dwarvish languages in Lord of the Rings (Sindarin and Khuzdul, duh). Well listen up, nerds. Tonight is your night. A time to be amongst your people. Glasses or contacts, Star Trek or Star Wars, red pill or blue bill... we have an event that will make you geek out.
Nerd Nite SF, a group that organizes "drunkademics" as a way for people to learn about nerdy topics, booze it up and meet others interested in the same things, is celebrating their two-year anniversary this evening. Taking place at the Rickshaw Stop (155 Fell) at 8pm, the title of tonight's event is Nerd Nite SF #24: Kawaii, English, and Magnetometry.

Tickets cost $8. Derivative of fun is f(x) = 42x + amazing²
