Nerd Stigmata
This is a conversation between Ryan and Todd about a nerd battle wound.

Ryan throw me that wireless router. (toss)

Ouch! ohh man you cut me. Yes the wireless router cut me on the hand.


Oh mg god! Ryan look I thing its a sign from the heavens above. As I look down at my hand I am bleeding in the shape of the iconic mouse cursor. This is the first official record of the Nerd Stigmata.

    Nerd stigmata: wound in shape of mouse cursor…

    Todd Vanderlin suffered a cut to his hand when his friend tossed him a wireless router. The wound looks just like a mouse cursor. Link……

    Cool! Trackback: “Anyway, This is neat, I came across this on Digg, Nerd Stigmata! Dude got a cut from a router that looks just like a mouse cursor/pointer..”

    It believe this is authentic. I have been seeing these in tortillas for the past month.

    It’s like the mouse pointer jumped out and stabbed you, then jumped back into the screen.

    Just wait until the pointer start moving.

    Just pray it’s not one of those that leave trails…

    The ideal outcome would be for the Wound to leave a scar in the exact shape of a mouse cursor/pointer.

    I am very envious of that wonderful injury.
