How to tell you’re a nerd: Method 138 (or games of hunger and the spice melange…)
When someone recounts an instance of a six-year-old girl reading The Hunger Games, which they point out is rather mature subject matter for such a young child, you respond as follows:
“The real issue is the fact that she is wasting her time with a derivative work like The Hunger Games. Aside from the better novels that deal with dystopian survival games, a discerning adult should have introduced the child to good science fiction in general (not the least of which is Dune by Frank Herbert).”
