Nerd Nite DC on 2/18/23: The love lives of fish, live action role play (larp), and how a volcano bummed out literary greats.

A cartoon fish peeks out of a pool, gazing lovingly at a flamboyantly posed knight with an impressively large sword as a volcano explodes in the background, throwing ash into the sky. Truly, a doomed romance.

The talks:

A journey through the colossal global fallout of a single volcanic eruption in 1815, and how it directly led to the 2004 cinematic masterpiece Van Helsing, starring Hugh Jackman and Kate Beckinsale.

“From Plenty of Fish to FishFinder: Finding Love in a Weird and Dirty World”by Tiffany Atkinson
What do fish look for when trying to find true love? A question that has probably kept many of you lying awake at night. Can they be that different than us? Let’s explore these tantalizing questions and learn what’s sexy and what’s not.
