I have been wondering lately, what is the difference between a nerd and a geek?Discuss.
Why are LEGOs under the "childhood" toy section? I broke mine out just last week.
Is there really a need for a distinction? Do people distinguish between freaks and spazes in the same manner, for instance? Is there a difference between "queer" and "gay"? I've always used the geek and nerd (and dork) interchangably, and the only real issue I have is with people self-applying the terms to describe things that really aren't dorky. Examples such as: "I'm such a dork, I'll stay in watching football all Sunday!" or "Can you believe I've read every issue of Cosmopolitan? I'm a total nerd!"
A geek is 1. Not as obsessed in just one thing as nerds are, and 2. A lot cooler about things and topics. My opinion.
For example, I'm guessing I'm one of the few hardcore pro wrestling fans here, does that automatically mean I don't belong?
