Didn’t someone once say this was the difference between nerds and geeks?
I grew up thinking ‘nerds’ were the computer gamer, fantasy loving, unsocial types, whereas ‘geeks’ were just really brainy… and I suppose also anti-social. Nerds can be brainy too, but often their knowledge of Star Trek and sci-fi outweighs their knowledge of actual physics?
Eh, I dunno. The difference is quite small… but my point is, I wouldn’t call hipster-wannabe types nerds OR geeks! As soon as video games go back out of fashion, they will be on to the next trend and the true nerds can shine again :P
I always thought it was the other way around, nerds being really brainy and geeks being the computer fantasy people.
Nerds are wannabe geeks… :-)
According to this, real nerds don’t have eyes…
I think it’s the glare on their glasses.
Technically, it should be “people who call themselves nerds.” </grammar geek>
this is seeming very true, i don’t recall nerd’s fashionable pocket protectors or D&D robes being “in” this year….
hipsters vs nerds
Way to perpetuate stereotypes!
So, the difference between nerds and those that call themselves nerds is physical beauty. *sigh*
Thank you! There are so many beautiful nerds in the world!
This perpetuates the bully mentality. :(
If you watch The Big Bang Theory – Leonard is a geek. Raj and Howard are nerds.
people who still say “lol” are idiots.
Did any one see that reality show “King of the Nerds” or something like that? I never watched it but from the previews It was full of people on the right, and I always wondered when nerds became so fashionable (or maybe trendy is better?)!
