Okay what is this about?I can't seem to find a topic in this.
Quote:
I've never considered myself as really being a 'Nerd'. Even though I love Computer Programming, Tolkien and stuff, I still play Varsity sports, workout, go out and socialize, and stuff like that.

Oh Anilorak your far from being a nerd,you seemed cool Cool Smilie
gimli, what is your definition of a 'nerd'?
I consider myself possibly a geek, but not a nerd.
I

Had it been a geeks guild I would have joined, but nerd? Not so sure what you call a nerd and what not really. I have a lot of friends, socialise fairly enough I think, like going out, but I also like reading, Internet and computer games. Does that make me a nerd? In that case, I know a lot of nerds. lol Tongue Smilie
In my book:

Nerds wear glasses and pocket protecters, are interested in math, science, and/or engineering. In my day we also wore a slide rule hanging from our belts, replaced by a programable calculater when they came out, but now my fellow nerds probably have a powerful laptop hardwired to their left hands.

Geeks are just fanatics who go overboard, (can you say obsessive behavior?) about something like computer games, or J.R.RTolkien.

Of course I may be too close the trees or the oliphaunt to properly define it, having been or am still being both a nerd and a geek. Cool Elf Smilie
Grondy's definitions are about right.. but in the interest of wanting to be open to geeks as well, they may also unite with us! Lets just keep the Windows vs Linux debate to a minimum ok Orc Grinning Smilie
Ok I'm not interested in maths or engineering, but I do wear glasses. Animated Wink Smilie

I'll go along as a geek then. Tongue Smilie
congrats, you are now geekafied Wink Smilie

But...but I have all the markings of a geek...yet...I wear glasses...
AAARRRGGGGHHHHHH! SOMEBODY HELP ME PLEASE! I'M HAVING AN IDENTITY CRISIS AND I DON'T KNOW WHAT I AM!!!!!!! Super Scared Smilie
*Halo resorts to sitting in a corner whilst rocking back and forth and muttering to herself...*
I'll be a Geek with Tommie. Wink Smilie
Are you guys sure it isn't "Lambda Lambda Lambda" instead of "Lamda Lamda Lamda" ? i mean Lambda, the Greek letter.
what is this a geek reunion?? I mean no ofense but Im just looking through everthing and I just came with this lamda lamda lamda thing, what does it mean?
i think it should be Lambda Lambda Lambda - well, that was the name of the student club of the nerds in the movie(s) "Revenge of the Nerds"
Forgot to add : G(r)eek Reunion.
This thread is about geeks and nerds. (Lambda) X 3 was the name of the fraternity that the nerds belonged to in the movie Revenge of the Nerds and its prequels and/or sequels. Some of our members are one or the other, some are both, and some are neither. Most of us wear those names as badges of honour rather than the put downs they were originally meant to be. Elk Grinning Smilie
Exactly grondy! and of course.. I just cant spell is all
I'll wear my geek badge with pride!

Hey, Halo, why don't you come along and join me and Sammie on the geek line? Orc Grinning Smilie

Anyone on the nerd's side already? Maybe we could hold a reunion for nerds and geeks. All together, would make a great bunch! Big Laugh Smilie
is this anything like Red Rover Red Rover send Grondy right over?
But, I'm a dork, not a nerd or a geek! Where can I fit in?
Hi! Chikakat. Happy Elf Smilie I thought you were our resident klutz. Elf With a Big Grin Smilie

What is the current definition of "dork"? It used to be someone stick-in-the-mud-like, after the biblical character named "Dorcas," who was nice and helped others out with acts of kindness and charity. Cool Elf Smilie

Of course you can be both, or have you become more graceful in your old age? Happy Elf Smilie
In keeping with my "There's a ubiquitous Simpsons line for every occasion, and I know 95% of 'em" theory, "I'm not a nerd, Bart. Nerds are smart." And I was always told a geek was someone who bit the heads off chickens The things that passed for entertainment before we had the Trilogy....

Where that leaves us I'm not quite sure. Maybe we're just folks...?
Hmmm...I have been called a drama geek in the past, but I don't really think I am either a geek or a nerd....ok, maybe I'm a little geeky, but, I am a strong believer in physical as well as mental activity -- can I wear a pocket protector with my gym clothes?
I'm greek.
