Nerdjacking

What does Nerdjacking mean?

Taking over a conversation with geeky talk

Ever been part of a conversation that suddenly gets hijacked by someone who starts going off deep into their geeky interests? That’s what we call Nerdjacking.

Imagine Sam, who’s really into technology, games, and comic books, starts talking about these topics in a conversation, even when others don’t share the same level of interest. That’s a classic example of Nerdjacking.

However, it’s important to remember that Nerdjacking doesn’t apply if the other person is equally engaged in the nerdy talk. If Joe, for example, is as excited as Sam about the latest gaming console, it’s just a conversation between two geeks, not Nerdjacking.

So, in simple terms, Nerdjacking is when a nerd gets a bit too carried away with their passions, and unintentionally takes over a conversation with their geeky knowledge and interests.

Hey, did you watch the new Marvel movie?

Yes! It was awesome! The action scenes were mind-blowing. 🎬

I totally agree! But did you know that the director used a new filming technique called CGI? It’s so fascinating how they create those realistic effects. Did you know that CGI stands for Computer Generated Imagery? πŸŽ₯

Wow, I didn’t know that! That’s really cool. But hey, did you see the new iPhone that was released? The camera quality is next level! πŸ“±
