    Nerds vs Geeks

    Hi everybody!
    I was just thinking... Out there in the world, there are nerds, and there are geeks.

    I was wondering what you all though each one is?
    For classifying nerds, I think they come in two categories:
    Mean evil nerds who are smart and crush other nice nerds and
    nice nerds who are smart and nice.
    Of course below the two categories there are the varietys. Some nerds are artsy-nerds, some are literature-nerds and then there are computer-nerds.

    Geeks on the other hand can be obsessive about a certain subject, or just plain weird like the kid with big glasses who eats paste.

    Well, that's just what I think... What about you guys?

    Nerds are a sort of sour candy that I don't much care for and geeks bite the heads off of live chickens.

    They are both a waste of flesh and blood

    I think the difference between geeks and nerds are that nerds are smart, but geeks don't have to be smart, just obsessive.

    I'm an html-h2g2-red dwarf-series of unfortunate events-green day-short story writing-books nerd. Or at least I try to be.

    One does not have to be a nerd or a geek to enjoy Webdeving,
    I like both Physical and Intellectual pursuits....
    Look at my Avatar, It IS actually me,

    DO I LOOK LIKE A GEEK/NERD TO YOU??????

    Just because I'm in MENSA doesn't instantly brand me a waste of flesh and blood
    (like all those pencil pushing pansies whom I assume you are referring to)

    Kind of scary, you say?...
    Meet me in an ally behind the pub and you may just find out...

    MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    They both are horrible... A geek gets embarrsed daily while the nerd has bad hygeine. Both are usually loners. A nerd is unattractive while a geek acts strangely. e.g. trips and spills a carton of milk on the dean's head. However both are regarded as foolish while they both are bookwurms.

    Two things:
    1. Bookworms (I ain't much of a book worm although I read Harry Potter)
    2. !@#$&^%^%*&^%$&*$&^$^

    Bah... I played too much Final Fantasy where they had some sort of character called a "wurm" which they mispelled on purpose to name one of the enemy worms... Harry Potter is a good book btw. I finished the 6th book in about 8 hours. I'm no bookworm but, if there where such a word, I'm a computerworm.
    What's that #2 supposed to say?
