Rule #372 (Beginning of Nerd Commandment Theme Week)

I got some good responses from Zombie Survival Week, so I thought I would try my hand at another theme this week: The Seven Nerd Commandments. Let's get to it, shall we?*

Nerd Commandment #1:

Nerds cannot like any of the following dichotomous groups (or things of a similar nature) equally: Star Wars and Star Trek, DC and Marvel, or Mac and PC.

Rule #351 (Beginning of Zombie Survival Week)

I watched Zombieland last week, and it has inspired the first theme week here on the Rule Blog. While a guest week would be rules written by other people, theme weeks are original content written about a thematic subject: for instance, zombies. This week I will be writing rules for survival in the eventuality of zombies taking over the world. So, here we go:

Zombie Survival Rule #1:

Sentimentality will get you killed.

Rule # 348

It's important to know the difference between healthy and unhealthy relationships, because sometimes "romantic" stories emphasize very unhealthy ones.

Rule #347

Watch the movies you want to watch, regardless of what anyone else thinks about them.

Tuesday, February 2, 2010

Rule #346

Television program has reached a sad low when any program can be "all about the commercials".

Monday, February 1, 2010

Rule #345

The Super Bowl is all about the commercials.
