I can't decide if that is the case, or if the Farkettes will deny their true nerdiness (and our BIE requests).

Yeah... but I was thinking more of the engineer from Firefly.


Except... she's an Actress, not an 'Engineer'.

I had a friend who used to go to bars to pick up chubby/fat girls for one nighters. He actually prefered them to regular or skinny girls. Reason: He claimed that because they were overwieght they had self esteem problems and therefore because he paid attention to them, they'd do anything in bed. Plus he didn't have to worry if he ran into them after as that whole self esteem thing would keep them from making a scene in public.

That was until one clobbered his ass in a bar, flattened him to the ground.

We lol'd at him.

THIS.

Playing an engineer onscreen and reading lines of dialogue that contain words you don't understand does not make you a nerd.

Case in point:

for years, nerdy girls in movies and on tv have been played by scorchingly hot chicks who tie their hair back and wear glasses.

in the real world, hot nerdy girls are still a dramatic minority. the hot thing about nerdy girls is what they know, not how they look.

That's why I asked- is being on Fark an inherently nerdy action? If so, no denial needed. I'm pretty sure I'm a nerd, but I guess that depends on how one defines "nerd."

I think it depends on the threads they usually post in since that would reflect their interest/humor.

Why would it? Nothing nerdy in the picture to give context.

Lord_Dubu: Phil Herup: Geeks possess a high level of knowledge on one or more subjects. bite the heads of chickens at the carnival.

I think both definitions are allowed now.

From WIKIPEDIA -- "The word geek is a slang term, noting individuals as "a peculiar or otherwise odd person, especially one who is perceived to be overly obsessed with one or more things including those of intellectuality, electronics, gaming, etc."

"[1] Formerly, the term referred to a carnival performer often billed as a wild man whose act usually includes biting the head off a live chicken, bat, snake or bugs."

Theres a local watch shop around here and there is a hot nerdy girl who works there. She told my bf that guys always hit on her and she laughs it off. She has the glasses, the hair(which is in a pony tail) and the classic hot nerd look. Her personality isnt biatchy either, shes very nice but smoking hot.

Retodd: Nerdy girls are cool in the uncoolishness.

Dumb chicks who put on a pair of glasses so that people think they are smarter are pathetic. "Tee hee! Look at me! I look like the girls that I ignored in high school! Tee Hee! Am I interesting now?"

Megsabelle: Are all girls on FARK nerds by definition?

I always assumed so. Somehow, deep down, I know I could never be half nerd enough to ever win a Farkette's heart.

Megsabelle: I think seeking to define "nerd" proves I am a nerd

I don't think all Farkettes are nerds, nor do I think there is anything wrong with being one. Nerd is a word one must define for him/herself.

Dreaded_South: Slackers!

The first real nerd posted in this thread.

Until convinced otherwise, I'm positive that the others were just faking it for attention.

OLIVIA MUNN DOES NOT COUNT, DAMNIT. She just works on a station that used to be known for gaming and computer shows, but now mostly broadcasts Cops, anime, and pathetic masturbation fodder.

Sorry, but nerdy in and of itself is a hot thing for a chick. Period. It would take a lot to overcome (undergo?) the nerdy chick potential.
