Default Re: nerd ftw?

yeah usually. or you can end up like my friend because hes a little lazy

smart as hell and he has the qualifications, but he'd rather just sit home playing WoW. ^_^

his girlfriend managed to get him into gear to go to college to study electrical installation though.

too many people got the brains but not enough use 'em.

and the ones with no hope and no brains, are called 'Chavs' in england ^_^

Here nerds are kids with social life and the brains. You know, the kids with friends, that just kinda chill out, but are packing some muscle up there.
A nerd is someone with no life, brains, but weird. We say it in a different tone of voice though.
Like you can tell.

but, do you think being a 'nerd' is a bad thing? or the contrary?
White and nerd is such a funny spoof!

I guess it does really depend where you are - here it's the complete opposite!

BTW Superman, Intellectual Badass xD HA! I'm so stealing that
oposite here, geek is someone who knows a lot about computers, has a social life and just general

nerd means, has no life, only does computers and doesnt care about social life

but non are meant in a bad way, onyl if the person specifiaclly uses it as an insult which doesnt happen that much - if you know alot about comps here, its actually a good thing and you can show off to peopel XD maybe its because msot people in my town are stupid, ugly and dont know anyting

The way I have always heard it is the nerd is the type of person who sits in his moms basement playing WoW, while the geek is the type of person who wants to learn everything.

I'd categorize myself as a geek. I have a social life, and yet like to learn new things, and I wouldn't call myself daft, yet I'm into things that people would consider different.

I don't see how people cope without a social life. I get thoroughly depressed if I'm on my own all the time, but also need a lot of alone time as well, away from people.
