Geeks and Nurds and others

  1. Oct 31, 2004 #1
    Ok guys [girls as well]: since all of us are "nice" PF member, and Uncle Greg will be "not happy" if somenbody is lying, i wanna ask:

    Are you, and or least you think, A Geek or A Nurd?

    I was a former "Geek Nurdy wanna be" then i found it difficult to become so...even i am hard worker..but i appreciate the "Too much hard workers" efforts to make us have a happy life...making weapons of mass distruction...and made be communicate with people i might will never see in my life [may be in the after life] from my house :biggrin:

    I'm not a Turd, but possibly a Nerd..

    Lol... turd. Grand.

    It's difficult to say really. I mean, I don't really try in school, I make stupid mistakes (last test, I copied down 2 questions wrong............), but I tend to extremely well on things I care about (not art). I make nerdy jokes all the time, which is actually pretty funny (I think)... hmm... but I'm also fare quite well in most sports...

    Can I be both? :D

    Is this a question where I'm supposed to choose "geek" or "nerd" and those are the only two choices? or is it a yes/no question? Growing up I was a nerd, then sometime after graduation I suddenly became good looking, and wasn't a nerd. now I am starting to get back into the books and nerd stuff, but I come across as being not a nerd, but superior.

    I thought I was both but I was told I was neither and just very intelligent. Interesting. :tongue2:

    One day i had not quarter. So i wrote a computer program to flip a coin for me.

    I am a nerd.

    I thought that was funny. guess I'm a nerd too.

    I habitually forget the difference between the two and sometimes may ask for someone to clue me back in again. At this point I don’t know which one I’d be but I’m thinking neither.

    If I'm married to a nerd, does that count? and does it also make me guilty by association? :eek:

    Yes Tsu, it does. Sorry.

    Doesn't a guy geek wear high-water pants and his belt half-way up his chest? (Picturing Bill Murray as Todd on SNL's Todd and Lisa skits. Gilda Radner's Lisa was a perfect girl geek) :rofl: :rofl: Nerds are the brainy science types. (or am I dating myself here, and this has all changed?) :grumpy:

    I dress sociably, ergo I am am a nerd, not a geek. Geek = poor social out cast. Nerd = person who should be, but is just sly enough to slip into society when he feels like it.

    I dress in plaid shirts every day so that probably classifies me as a geek. They are Gap shirts though. I probably am a social outcast but it's mostly my own doing. I'm a social butterfly in the summertime but in school it's all business so there's more evidence of geekdom. I don't like scifi or D&D-type things though. I tried :biggrin:

    I thought a geek was someone who bit the heads off of live chickens and stuck ice picks up their nose.
