Now, let's get numerical: The national average for DMV wait time is 34.2 minutes. Compare that to the average national wait time in a doctor's office (which will have way less people walking through every day because there are tons of doctor's offices in a city, or even a neighborhood), which is 20.2 minutes. Considering every weirdo and their weirdo friend who lives within 10 miles of your local DMV is at your DMV the same day as you, 34.2 minutes isn't bad.
Jokes about the DMV suck not just because they're hacky, but statistically as well.
Pretty Much Anything Casting "Nerds" in a Negative Light

Three of the top 10 highest grossing movies of 2014 as of the publishing date of this article are based on comic books (Captain America: The Winter Soldier, X-Men: Days of Future Past, and The Amazing Spider-Man 2). Two of the 10 are based on a line of toys (Transformers: Age of Extinction and The LEGO Movie). Two are remakes/reboots of classic sci-fi films (Godzilla and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes).
What a piece of shit this one was.
On TV, the highest rated program that isn't a live sports broadcast is The Big Bang Theory, a comedy about astrophysicists and engineers. In the top 10 list of most pirated shows, you have Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, and Arrow -- one fantasy series and two comic book properties.
And then there's the economic impact of traditionally nerdy pursuits, like all things tech-related. Let's look at it through the prism of a crazy billionaire in California named Tim Draper, who wants to rip California apart and split it into six separate states. If this insane idea were to somehow happen, Silicon Valley -- the part of California that companies like Apple, Google, Cisco, Oracle, Adobe, Facebook, Yahoo!, Netflix, and Pixar call home -- would instantly become the wealthiest state in the country, with an average yearly income of $63,288.
