Nerdrage is both the emotion felt when a nerd is exposed to something that directly contradicts the core beliefs of their obsession, and the reactionary diatribe by the nerd that inevitably follows.
Dude did you hear about the new Transformers movie?
Yes, it fills me with a seething nerdrage

I use to keep up with internet discussions related to comic book movies but the nerdrage became too much.

Nerd Rage: The phenomenon in which a typical "nerd" becomes so enraged, that rational thought quickly decreases, but strength output is significantly increased as if being channeled. The period is short lived, but can end up causing serious damage, especially if the "nerd" has a short-fused temper.

The overwhelming anger of a nerd when something or someone gets the "facts" wrong on a geeky subject such as Star Trek, Dungeons & Dragons, Lunix, etc.
Nerd: "So what do you think about Star Trek?"

Human: "Isn't that the space show with Captain Jean Luc Skywalker?"

Nerd seethes and painstakingly explains in erudite detail on the differences between Star Wars and Star Trek.

Human sits there, pretends to think for a long moment, then says: But he's still a Jedi, right?

Nerd's head explodes from the massive influx of nerdrage.


Nerd: "Lunix truly is the superior operating system!"

Human: "Microsoft Windows is better."

Nerd: "WHAT DID YOU JUST SAY!??!!?!??!?!!!!?!?!"

Human: "Well, more programs run for it. And free stuff just sucks, man."

Nerd's eyes become bloodshot, face beet-red, and steam shoots from his ears.

Human: "Bill Gates is my hero."

Nerd: "I'LL FUCKING KILL YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" *heart attack*
