Nerdcore

John Hodgman at the Radio and Television Correspondents' Association Dinner. It's not exactly Stephen Colbert's routine at the White House Correspondents' Association Dinner, but then nothing ever will be. On the other hand, Hodgman isn't afraid to tackle the important topics; is Obama truly the first nerd president of the modern era?

Took me a while to recall the original Fremen for the Sandworm, but get there I did so 100% on the short Nerd test for me.

Pretty funny though.

I got stuck on what their water-induced death-vomit is called.

Water of Life - Just in case you haven't already looked it up.

Really? Then I got 100% too; I figured there would be a weird Fremen term for it as well.

I don’t believe it had a different name and that was certainly what the Fremen called it (it’s possible the Bene Gessuit had a different name for it).

I will admit to only knowing “Crom” from the Saturday morning cartoon adaption however rather than the original version.
