      Sheri there is only the one spartan that we know of(unless you have the books, i do)and its the marines and the master chief fighting the covenant

    Dominance War: The online artist competition where artists from all over the world come together to take part in a friendly 3D and 2D war between communities. This years mission:
    The two heroes in the third Great War for Dominance foresaw what would happen if Machines were allowed to continue their hostilities, but it was too late. 5 year’s after their sacrifice to end Machines’ disruptive means for war with unstable dimensional travel, the sinister threat they foretold, emerged!

    …Reality collapsed.

    Everywhere, dimensional tears opened to hellish realms and everywhere, nightmares emerged! In the first wave alone, Machines were struck down with such ferocity that for the first time in any war, Machines had to take a more conservative stance. Norms were clearly outnumbered on all fronts and had to withdraw to their great magically protected cities. It was a new era and everyone soon began to realize, including Machines, that it might very well be the beginning of the end in a new chapter of the Epic Dominance War Series: The Rise of Demons!

    But there is still hope. The tears in reality are not normal. Something is keeping the dimensions destabilized. Both machines and norms have the mystical power or technology to correct the crisis, unfortunately, to find the source of the problem and to revert everything back to normal requires a luxury neither Norms nor Machines have… time. With death beating down on their walls, and darkness looming around every bend, the missions are as follows:

    Norms:
    Your mission, again, armed with a powerful magical weapon, is to protect the cities, lead an assault to other worlds and destroy the mysterious force that is keeping the dimensions destabilized.

    Machines:
    Your assigned tasks: Protect homeworld, destroy all resistance, terminate the dimensional rifts caused by a yet unknown source, and reclaim your rightful dominance over the entire planetary system.

    New Race: Demons!
    Your purpose: Destroy every man, woman, bot, alien or child. Leave nothing unscathed!

    Troll is just a term on forums for just harasing someone with post after post…..like i made a post and all of a sudden this guy just keeps trollling me!…

  4. Mandi says:

    Dominance war, huh? I think I’ve found myself a new hurdle.

  5. nerdhurdles says:

    I’m not sure we can include Halo references in the Geektionary… a hurdle too high.

  6. kumarhk says:

    You should read the Halo books, Jakob. You wouldn’t like them, but read them anyway.

    One of my chemistry lecturers was called Phil King… I cannot help but giggle. It was a bit of a chemistry hurdle at the time though.

  9. Mandi says:

    Phil King doesn’t seem like it should be allowed to be a real name.

  10. LauraWV says:

    I think Sheldon Cooper’s “Buzinga!” is Geektionary worthy. Nerds everywhere are watching Big Bang Theory and considering it the pinnacle of nerd culture; thus, the exclamation “Buzinga!” can be heard coming from the mouths of geeks in many situations. The word basically means “Gotcha!” or “I’ve made my point!”

  11. embraceurinnerdork says:

    my 11yo son was most amused at the term NerdHerd and suggested this..
    ShepNerd leader of his/her particular herd

  12. Mandi says:

    I was totally a ShepNerd in middle school! Awesome.
