I was just wondering if we are nerds because we are like computer people or if we are geeks because we make lotr maps and just the game is geekish or are we not a geek or nerd?

I no kind a werid thread.

This is painfully off topic, but here goes...

From what I understand, nerds are people who bite heads off chickens in sideshows, but I don't consider nerds computer people in everyday conversation (that's more of geeks to me). Nerds to me are smart people who usually take honors classes get lots of A's, and such. As for geek, I consider them more the computer knowledge-ish type. The official definitions vary from place to place.

I am, however, proudly in the official Nerd Herd, and I know next to nothing about computers.

You'll also find 100 other people come in here and say they're neither.

Hope that answers your question.

nerds, nobody says geeks at all. There's just subcategories of nerds. Like, trekkiers, lotr nerds, computer nerds, homework nerds.

It's better to be either one of them so then you can succeed later in life.

Quoted from Bill Gates:

Be nice to nerds because someday they'll be your boss!

I guess that's hope for all of us

Some punctuation would be nice... commas, for example.

Well, my friends aren't considered geeks either. I seem to be a bit up on the popularity scale.

Everybody likes me because I don't talk much... or maybe it's because I listen so well.

The difference between a nerd and a geek is that geeks are generally pimply-faced and utterly reclusive (apart from the net), while nerds just know a lot. At least as far as I know.

Geeks are the people you go through great strides to sit as far way as possible from in school. Nerds are the people that you can trick in to doing your schoolwork.

I don't see myself as a nerd, and I don't think other people does that too .
