How to spot a nerd: See if they’re wearing this, then take their lunch money

Some of the funniest book dedications ever.

So while I adored Guardians of the Galaxy as a great fun loving film with cool characters I can do nothing but thank Marvel Studios and Dave Bautista for finally bringing a superhero to the screen that my little brother can relate to.
