WordSpy шикарную цитату для иллюстрации приводит:
Eulogizing E. Gary Gygax, "the Father of Dungeons & Dragons," is a lot different than coming up with postmortem praise for, say, a great playwright or a titan of literature — Gygax's accomplishment makes him more like the person who first conceived staged drama, or the guy who came up with the idea for books. Before D&D there was nothing like D&D; its advent created nerddom as we know it, and changed culture forever.
—Darren Zenko, "Dungeons, dragons and destiny," The Toronto Star, March 9, 2008
Так-то. Без D&D и занудства-то не было :)))
