A nerd was always just someone who is good in school, but socially awkward. I'm not sure how that has mushroomed into them being some new life form .. lol

That's kind of how I always thought of them. Bit did that make me one, too? Good in school, socially awkward, but also Varsity athlete and later musician.... Hmmmm? Just somwething to wonder about when I'm snowed in.

Seems to be whoever upsets you at the moment?

Best Answer

usually fashion impaired, socially awkward, intellectually focused & doesn't fit with the superficial norm

Best Answer

In my opinion the word 'nerd' merely refers to your personal tastes and interests, so you can still be a 'cool' nerd (like me hehe). On the other hand, I think the word 'geek' has more negative connotations, regarding overall personality, awkwardness, appearance etc.

I'd say i'm a geek.. not sure what a nerd means though. It sounds a bit american.

Best Answer

Geeks and nerds were always the same thing IMO. They're used interchangeably in the US.

yeah if you become celeb school or rockstar, date with popular people, good at sport

Best Answer

I'd call it anyone with a major passion and large knowledge ba<x>se for something. Know the best pla<x>yer's of a sport better than the commentators or other professionals in the industry, then your a sports nerd, know the dates of major events that shaped history off the top of your head, than your a history nerd, know just about every gun how they operate and their history/ intended use, then your a gun nerd, that simple.
