Vanity plates are typically used to express enthusiasm about something. I’ve seen ones referencing sports teams, movies, games, and even people. If you’re going to pay extra for them, they should be meaningful. Seeing geeky license plates while I’m on the freeway makes me unreasonably happy. Like, I’m tempted to follow the car they’re on and tell the driver that we should be friends. I haven’t acted on the impulse… yet.
I’ve rounded up examples of some nerdy plates, and I would like to be friends with all of these people.
