About the Manual

The Nerd Manual is meant to be both a useful resource for nerds and a guide for the people involved with nerds. If you're a nerd you can find information here that will help you improve your life and perhaps better understand yourself. If you're close friends with, dating, or married to a nerd, I want to give you insight into things nerds do that a lot of people have difficulty understanding.

I hope to avoid offending anyone--either nerd or non-nerd--but please understand that the manual will get into some sensitive topics, stray into contentious territories, and even use stereotypes to illustrate points. It's OK to disagree with something, but keep your comments civil.


Nerd Traveler: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Pizzerias

Ninja Pizza - Turtles and Friend
You only have to watch about one minute from any episode of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoons, or maybe two minutes of one of their movies, to know that the Ninja Turtles love pizza. The boys even have a favorite Pizza Guy who delivers their pies.

But did you know that you can actually get your own Ninja Turtles pizza from a Ninja Turtle pizzeria? I'm not talking about Pizza Hut promotions, I'm talking about full on shell wearing, trademark flaunting, boxes with turtle logos, pizza delivery services. (Some translation may be required.)
