'Star Actor' Wil Wheaton answered a young girl's question about dealing with bullies at Comic Con last year, and now, thanks to a Reddit post, the actor's touching response has gone viral.
"When I was a little boy I was called a nerd all the time because I did not like sports, I loved to read, I liked math and science and I thought school was really cool and it hurt, a lot," he told the girl.
"We don't choose to be nerds. We can't help it that we like these things, and we shouldn't apologize for liking these things," Wheaton, 41, said.
What better way is there to celebrate a weekend of debauchery in Sin City than by riding the new Vegas Ferris wheel?
The Las Vegas High Roller at The LINQ, began operating on Monday and has been getting rave reviews for the birds-eye view it offers of the strip, according to the Associated Press.
The 550-foot-tall observation wheel has 28 spherical cabins that can hold up to 40 people each.
Twist in the Search for Relisha Rudd
The case of Relisha Rudd, a missing 8-year-old homeless girl, has gripped the nation's capital.
The mystery deepened Monday night when a body found in a Washington, D.C., park was tentatively identified as a man suspected of kidnapping Rudd weeks ago, according to D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier.
She was last seen with Kahlil Malik Tatum, 51, a janitor who worked in the shelter her family called home. When the girl failed to show up at school, city authorities reached out to Rudd's mother, who may have given Tatum initial permission to spend time with her daughter outside of the shelter, a law enforcement source said. There is still no sign of the girl.
