Gosh Zero, that sucks!

Here's a gift from me. Remember on June 5th, 2003, when I said you were wrong?

I take it back.

Merry Christmas

ummm...I've got to say that I've never equated black leather pants with nerds. In fact, the whole idea of a nerd in black leather pants just creeps me out!

The emoticon: translates into sarcasm.
Just lettin ya know

Yeah, a nerd in black leather pants scares me too. Especially if the pants are tight.
Maybe Sting isn't really nerd
I deny being a nerd. Our breed prefers the term, "wise guy."

Ooh ooh, I got a good one.

Last year I got a boxed set of Stephen Hawkings, Universe in a Nutshell, and, The Illustrated A Brief History of Time.

The nerdy part is that I was so exited I thought I would wet my pants. Also got a Palm Pilot handheld computer with the same reaction.

Nerd is a diminishing word. Geeky is more like it

For your other career as a rock star?

For gettin down at the disco tech?
no

Tell me your definition of "nerd" and we'll see from there.

I've done all the "nerdy" things wearing leather pants:
- I've explained to a group of freshman on how to approximate e.
- I've showed how to work a related rates problem.
- I've worked on a Differential Equations project
- I've programmed
- I've composed a practice Physics exam for the department I work for.

But it all depends on your definition of "nerd"

Too tight cuts off circulation. Wouldn't want that! :wink:

Maybe Sting isn't really nerd
Again, it all depends on your definition of "nerd"

Not only that, but it's not that I wear a button shirt with pocket protectors and 16+ pens and a calculator WITH leather pants (that's just freaky).

Oh yeah, I've got a few more things for Christmas.

$200 to buy more books, A Rage Against the Machine VHS, and a Spongebob Squarepants stuffed doll.

But I thought you taught English back when you were Gordon Sumner?

Well, have you ever seen the OLD SNL's with Guilda Radner as Lisa Lupner and Bill Murray as her boyfriend, Todd? Do you remember how Todd dressed? That would be one of many definitions of a nerd.

Here's another one. Ya know Ivan? ...

Oh, thank God!!! That WOULD be freaky.
