I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but according to this survey, we are living in Nerd Hell. That's right, Virginia fall #46 on the list of Nerdiest States in America.
The states are ranked on the essentials; Star Trek, Cosplay, Magic the Gathering, D&D, Dr. Who, LOTR, and comic books on average.
Utah leads the way with nerds, followed by Alaska, Wyoming, and Idaho.
VA nerds, we have work to do.
