    Re: nerd????

    well it is by the person... (nice spelling) its just a "word" so its not that important... why do we have words they are just anoying... I think that most people could and would call me a "nerd" DnD and those other things are still fun... But do you really think that a "nerd" needs to be really smart... well thats what I think and it can or cann't affect you... o well...

    Re: nerd????

    I always thought there was a difference between geek and nerd. Geek being those who rant about the Lord of the Rings books being better than the movie(Well..they were!), Star Wars, D&D, niche video games, etc., and nerd being more focused on academic endeaverers(That is so not a word..), people who love them some computers, Calculus, Physics, and so forth.

    I think it's supposed to be derrogatory, but I'm not sure how...

    Question Re: nerd????

    Nerd (as defined by the Oxford English Dictionary)

    nerd/nerd/ n. (also nurd) esp. US sl. a foolish, feeble, or uninteresting person.
    nerdy adj. [20th c.: orig. uncert] see JERK n.4

    Rather a differant explantion of what is commonly accepted. Geek is a much more suitable word.

    The fact that I took the time to find and share this with you must mean that I'm a Geek/nerd.

    ROCK ON!

    In modern colloquial terms, it is switched. Geeks deal with latter; nerds deal with the former.

    (By the way, the Lord of the Rings books were better than the movies.)

    Re: nerd????

    I guess what ppl see as a nerd is someone who is everything but a prep. That sums it up pretty nice. Ppl also think nerds are ppl who have hobbies that are not "cool" or are book worms, cuz we all know being smart isn't "cool". aha but if people call you nerd don't let that put you down! that goes for everyone ^_^ u are who u are and be proud of it!
