One who is, instead of being made of organs and tissues and whatnot, made of awesome.
The word originated in John and Hank Green's video log projected, called vlogbrothers. While John was in an airport one day (curse those grey speckled walls), he saw a video game called Nerd Fighters.
Thus, the legacy of nerdfighting began.
Nerdfighters, we bring the frakkin' pain.
Nerdfighters are proud to be Nerds and fight to decrease WorldSuck.
Instead of being made of bones and organs, they are physically made of awesome.
Can be easily identified by the use of the word jokes.
The opposite of a Nerdfighter is a Decepticon.
"They must be a Nerdfighter!"
Started by brothers John and Hank Green, as a part of the "Brotherhood 2.0" project of 2007, where John and Hank would communicate only through video blogs for an entire year. (youtube.com/vlogbrothers)
The signature move for nerdfighters is Star Trek hands (you know, the funky fingers).
Nerdfighters will be happy to know that the VlogBrothers are going on a "Tour de Nerdfighting" at some point in 2008. (papertowns.com)
Most nerdfighters desperately want to live in an imaginary (or is it) place called "Nerdfighteria" (or Nerdfightaria, depending on spelling).
(from An Abundance of Katherines, a book written by John Green)
"The fans of Brotherhood 2.0 call themselves nerdfighters. A tightknit and extraordinarily dedicated community, the nerdfighters have raised tens of thousands of dollars for charities and political campaigns, taken over the most discussed pages of youtube, and written hundreds of letters to Merriam Webster lobbying for the inclusion of the word "nerdfighter" into the dictionary."
*note: In case you couldn't tell, the term "nerd" is not used dispargingly, but is rather used as a source of pride. If one is a nerd, they should be proud!
BW: Yeah, I am such a nerdfighter.
(generally used as a noun, though it can be used as an adjective : nerdfighterish)
"Man, that was no geek, that was a NERD FIGHTER!!!"
"What's the difference?"
"You don't wanna find out..."
Nerd 02: Well, why don't you go nerdfighter on their ass in order to decrease world suck.
Person 2: Yep! They are totally awesome!
Person 1: I am so glad to find a fellow Nerdfighter!
Person 2: Nerdfighters FTW!
Person 1: DFTBA!
Person 2: DFTBA!
