Being called a nerd used to be an insult and a bad thing, but in today's world, it is more of a compliment. Everyone seems to be a nerd these days. It is hard to find someone that doesn't like Star Wars, Game of Thrones, Marvel, or another superhero series. They seem to be everywhere and the whole world is nerdy these days, and there is nothing wrong with that. For all the nerds out there, there is an event coming to Idaho in a couple of weeks that you are not going to want to miss.
