To give you an idea of their awesomeness, they have managed to achieve many wonderful things. Most noteworthy being, raising money and awareness for many charities during the Vlogbrothers annual “Project for Awesome”, raising $10,000 for the This Star Won’t Go Out campaign (a cancer benefit fund), and lending over $1,750,000 to entrepreneurs in developing countries on Kiva.
However, they do not describe these achievements as “doing something good” or “being a nice person” like a boring person would. Instead they employ their quirky, inventive and highly amusing catchphrases, like “decreasing world suck” and being “made of awesome”.
Ultimately they are terrific people, who always strive to do good in the world and go about it in the most unique, brilliant, memorable manner you will ever have the fortune to witness.
Nerdfighter: A nerdfighter is a person who never forgets to be awesome and helps to get rid of all the suck in the world. It helps if you watch videos on the vlogbrothers YouTube channel, but chances are, if you want to be a nerdfighter, you probably are one.
Newfound nerdfighter: Fantastic!
Nerdfighters are considered to be "made of awesome" by John, Hank (the other participant in the videoblog), and other nerdfighters. The nerdfighters often send in pictures of nerdfighter related activities to the videoblog, such as nerdfighter embroidered pillows. It is unknown what will happen to nerdfighting when the videoblog ends.
"Bob is pretty nerdfighter."
As a noun:
"Bob is a nerdfighter."
As a verb:
"Yeah, I totally nerdfought my way through that."
As a group:
"The nerdfighters killed Bob's family."
"Are you a Nerdfighter? Yes? Then DFTBA!"
Dude 2: NERDFIGHTERS FTW!
One who is, instead of being made of organs and tissues and whatnot, made of awesome.
The word originated in John and Hank Green's video log projected, called vlogbrothers. While John was in an airport one day (curse those grey speckled walls), he saw a video game called Nerd Fighters.
Thus, the legacy of nerdfighting began.
Nerdfighters, we bring the frakkin' pain.
