I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
But my other idea is a 267 (4.4L) with a supercharger. Decisions.
But my other idea is a 267 (4.4L) with a supercharger. Decisions.Well, what's your intended application? What sort of fast do you want, straight line, around a course, or a good all-rounder? How does it handle?
I'm a scary nerd that can act like a normal person when in public. The strain is sometimes far to great which causes me to revert to my terrifying true form.
I'm definitely geeky, but I wouldn't consider it my primary quality. I'm more of a geeky artist, rather than an artsy geek. I don't spend a lot of money on geeky things, I'm not game or tech savy, etc, etc. My geekdom lies in books and cartoons. The rest of my interests are academic and outdoor-oriented.
So... getting back on the topic.To me the difference between a Nerd and a Geek has basically been:Geek = NERD + Social Skills. And therefore accepted into society.
Sorry for necro'ing an old thread

Related note, antisocial tendencies are neither nerd nor geek nor dweeb nor dork. Asocial tendencies might fall in there somewhere, but people with antisocial tendencies usually skip right to different naming schemes entirely.
There is nothing loaded about the term antisocial.
Social ineptitude, for example, implies the person isn't capable of navigating social norms. I think some of the definitions between nerd and geek mentioned in this thread are trying to differentiate the two by suggesting one label implies social ineptitude specifically; while I don't believe nerd or geek are well defined anywhere but small circles who have agreed on a definition amongst themselves, I certainly have a hard time seeing social ineptitude being part of either definition.
How is it no one had posted this before?
Good for you. Rest of forum who has posted in this thread, redeem yourself.
About the Pro Wrestling conversation earlier in this thread, apparently it's bad right now. Like, it takes itself too seriously.That's what information I can garner from the Pro Wrestling geeks anyway.
Good for you. Rest of forum who has posted in this thread, redeem yourself.That has been done several times over. Redeem yourself by assuming that people don't post xkcd things here. It's a given that 99% of the people here read it.
