That's a lot of troopers. In fact, I'm beginning to understand that this "hobby" - dressing up like a Stormtrooper - is becoming more and more popular by the year, and given the anonymity of the costume, there's no telling who's into this. It could be a friend, a lover, a co-worker - it could be the person sitting right beside you!!!!

But lest you non-nerds cluck your tongues and mutter "NERDS", I challenge you to tell me the difference between dressing up like a Stormtrooper, and dressing up like this:
The principle is even the same - anonymous intimidation and bonding.

But one activity is done by nerds; the other by ostensible "cool kids"; thus, one accepted, one mocked. 

One day the Nerds will rise up and have our robots beat down on these stupid jocks. Till then, we bide our time, nursing a mighty grudge.

UPDATE: Speak of the devil, but here's an article on how popular dressing up as a Stormtrooper has become.
