Yes.

samimgreen: Hey, I played the French Horn AND the Violin. I think I gots da geek...

Well, your nerd score says 'Wannabe,' but for that, you get a geek pass. Not that I'm an authority or anything.

/I hear French Horn players are good kissers.

Does anyone else find it appropriate that this was green lit on Joss Wedon's birthday? I propose that henceforth June 23rd shall be a feast day to be celebrated with gratuitous pics of nerdy girls.

/So let it be written.
//The female cast of every Joss Whedon show FTW.
///I know, they're just actors, not really nerds.
////Despite lack of nerdy status, I'm including Gina Torres on sheer principle.

Wollffeey: Not gonna say you are, but how about bass clarinet? I even marched with the damn thing.

I played Contrabass clarinet. Didn't march it though. Good on you for doing it. I imagine it was rather awkward.

Hey, guys! Sorry I'm late; I was showing someone how to build a report on SQL Server. What'd I miss?

I call shenanigans!!!

Having cute girls dress nerdy does not equal a nerd. Go to a tech school and see the girls taking partial differential equations, or Vector calculus, Computer Science, or electrical engineering (shutter); I assure you, 99.5% DO NOT look like Carrie Byron (spelling??).

Putting on square rimmed glasses and watching CSI or Mythbusters isn't nerdy, it's trendy.


/Until you've calculated with Taylor/Power series, Laplace Transforms, and/or 2nd order derivatives....you're not a nerd...sorry

KarlMaldensNose: KJUW89: has known this for a while.

Even more Lisa Loeb nerdy goodness.

/yum


And the thing about Lisa is that she is perhaps the nicest celebrity in the world; and even hotter in person.

She is also one-half of the oddest musical day of my life when I saw her and Shadows Fall on the same day, 60 miles apart. In any case, REALLY REALLY DO WANT.

/I would not try to keep away a keeper.

The lines are blurred these days anyway. Lots of "normal" people consider themselves nerds or geeks. Everybody uses a computer and is using various electronic gadgets like cell phones. Everyone is on the Internet doing "nerdy" things. In this way everyone thinks they are a geek nerd when in fact it's just technology and other geeky things becoming mainstream.

Sir Vanderhoot: I always thought that nerds were defined by what they do, i.e., profession/interests, and geeks were defined by their actions and personality.

Nerds are defined by "Revenge of the Nerds"

I am the stereotypical unattractive girl that wears glasses and likes comic books. High school sucked for me since I was overweight, had braces, and pretty much had no friends.

Being a hot chick with glasses does not make you a nerd.

Tat'dGreaser: Is this like that "I love nerds" crap that hot chicks try and convince us?

Nerd guys really really genuinely want a nerdy girl. We're sick of having to choose between our nerdy hobbies and our girlfriends.

GoDawgs!: I played Contrabass clarinet. Didn't march it though. Good on you for doing it. I imagine it was rather awkward.

I adore the contrabass, too bad my hands were never big enough to play either E-flat or B-flat. And all us bass clarinet players marched and yes it was awkward, especially having to hang out with all the saxophone players.

/Oh, not that kind of awkward.

Darn straight. Beauty queens that wear glasses, put their hair in ponytails and read Neil Gaiman are not nerds.

Similarly, Abercrombie models that wear glasses, sweater vests, own a Playstation 3 and occasionally pick up a book that isn't Manga are not nerds.

I like nerdy guys. They're less likely to cheat, have a STD, and don't mind if I want to play video games instead of cuddle. Then again, I'm not a hot chick, so this is a moot point.

OtherLittleGuy: brigid_fitch: Are these geeky enough?

Depends. Can you walk through the Hunt Valley without going into epilectic seizures?


Well, I've managed it for the past 11 years. The only problem I encounter is trying to walk more than 10 feet without being accosted by fanboys. And last year by Aaron Douglas.

indylaw: Well hell, when you narrow it down that way...

"All nerd girls that are unattractive are unattractive"

No kidding.


I should clarify. THE VAST MAJORITY of geeky/nerdy girls are unattractive. There is the awesome subset of attractive+geeky, but they're diamonds in the coal mine.
 
2008-06-23 11:15:04 AM  
I'd wager at least half the women (and all the hot ones) that show up to comic con and the like dressed up are not actually nerds or geeks, but attention whores. I've had the displeasure of dating one of that category, and that's a new kind of crazy.

wtf what about me? I even played the flute in band in Jr high...


Well, you're definately a cutie, but how much of a nerd? Hard to tell.

I'm going to take a guess... You're Dominican? Don't be upset, especially if you're actually Puerto Rican, I know how sensitive you all are to be confused for one another...

Haven't met any latina nerds though... Possible I suppose.

Tat'dGreaser: Is this like that "I love nerds" crap that hot chicks try and convince us?

No, this is a whole 'nother kettle of fish. Remember, a nerdy girl is only a ponytail, a pair of glasses and some frumpy clothing away from being a sexy goddess who, despite the change to the exterior, is still that sweet, smart, sassy li'l lady you only saw as a friend before.

Hot chicks will always stay friends with the nerdy guys and end up with the hot popular guys because test audiences prefer this, a la Pretty In Pink.

bacongood:
At some point, she realized that a lot of guys were checking her out. Since she wasn't used to this attention, she didn't know what to do. So she cheated on me more than once.

Honestly? I need more coffee and the UPS man needs to get here with my new power supply. If I don't get it today, I swear I will choke a biatch. It just sucks having to use one computer for Farking AND dB admin. I'm spoiled, I guess. It sure beats working in HR, though.
