I'd like to know which U.S. city is the nerdiest in terms of conventions, comic book stores, Internet speed, and number of colleges.

Probably Seattle. San Diego might be up there purely because of comic con.

Baltimore seems to attract a lot of Sci-Fi conventions. At my old hotel alone, we had Balti-Con, Shore Leave, FarPoint, Fariae Con, Monster Mania, Nostalgia, Fur-the-more.

Downtown Baltimore has even more, and much larger conventions.

Lol just because you watch Anime and read Comics/Manga, doesn’t mean you’re a nerd. (Yes, I’m offended)...

I’m going with Seattle.

I don't know, but given the fact that I bristled when I read "most nerdiest," I probably live there.

#doublesuperlative

(I'm going to go give myself a swirlie now.)

Nah. My initial thought was how they don't belong in the nerdiest city because of the double superlative. Not nerdy enough. (Then upon opening the thread, I discovered they were in search of the area with the most comic book nerds. That is a completely different universe. The double superlative no longer matters.)

Colleges and the internet aren't just for comic book fans. But way to correct me. NERD ALERT!!!!!
