Are you a nerd?
Join me earlybird, and you'll become more powerful than you could ever imagine.
Don't real nerds wear pocket protectors?
Trust me... It is.
Video game nerd=yes
So far we have: nerds, dorks and geeks.
I don't consider myself a nerd. I just consider myself weird.
Isn't it the other way around?
Chess team would work :-)
No. Not a need.
There's only been a dichotomy between the terms for the last decade or so, I think. Regardless, nowadays when you see a kid building a catapult in his back yard, you know he's a geek, not a nerd.
How do I know if I'm a nerd?
Wish I was, they are usually VERY successful in life, I do okay but could achieve more
How is that possible...
That's called a dork my friend.
Yes. I'm a software developer. When I'm not working I'm thinking about data structures, object models, software architecture, interfaces, polymorphism, thread management, and witty responses to SOH posts.
I'm not like the type if person who wastes their life on video games, though.
I regularly play dungeons and dragons (paper and dice not on the computer). So..... Yea, im freaking nerdy ;)
I wouldn't say that I am a nerd, I have no interest in the stereo typical things nerds like, but I am socially awkward.
I'm both :)
white n nerdy
No. I'm a geek. Yes. There is a difference.
Never Ending Radical Dude, so yes;)
No too well rounded, confident, and popular. One of the factors that makes a nerd a nerd is that they are very beta and awkward
exactly like me =]
I'm not technically a nerd, but in some ways I am. I'm definitely not "cool", and I take some honors classes, but I still have a social life, and I don't fry my brains with video games.
I'm playing Lego Star Wars as I type this.
Your comment made me think this might be a fun poll question: "Are you smarter than the average SOH user?" ;-)
I know a lot of useless info. I don't think that makes me a nerd. But I absolutely love them. Geeks, too. As Hardison from Leverage says, "Age of the geek, baby. Age of the geek."
Never realized there is a difference, I just use the two terms interchangeably!
Nerds just sit around watching anime all day; geeks get things done.
Geography nerd here
Can you be a nerd who won sporting events?
My screen name says it all...I'm a chemist nerd and I'm proud of it!
And I love Star Wars too haha
Yes and I'm proud!!!
A total of 9 AP classes in high school and always having either the history channel or news channels on, yeah I'm pretty much a nerd haha
I'm way smarter than average, but I am also very well rounded... A 'nerd', to me, means simply very smart and nothing else
I am border-line.
I'm more of a gamer
I think having/playing about 340 video games and setting a goal to reach 500 by the end of 2013 qualifies me as a nerd, yes.
Not the smart kind of nerd...
Poor me-not cool and not a nerd. Awkward!
Is 3 the atomic number of lithium!
By the way the answer is yes
