How nerdy am I? [Jan. 9th, 2005|11:09 am]
The Love Bug

I am nerdier than 87% of all people. Are you nerdier? Click here to find out!

Edit: Actually scrap that, I'm not happy about it at all. I'm a geek, not a nerd!! :oP

I got 84. Not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing really? ;)

I got a rotten banana. Should I be worried?

I, and most of my Slashdot brethren, would consider nerd to be much nicer than geek. The term 'geek' comes from the name for people who do crazy things in freak shows like bite heads off of chickens, so it basically means 'freak', whereas a nerd is someone who's so engrossed in a certain topic that everything else (e.g. a social life!) suffers because of it :-)

I got 28, so I guess I'm not qualified to say the above though ;-)

I think that's the American definition of 'nerd'...

Apparently, according to wiki, the term nerd in the UK is more offensive.
