emocomputerjock: This is not a redhead thread.

Isn't every good Fark thread a redhead thread?

IdBeCrazyIf: Think of that like the abridged version, there are entire tomes of drama behind every episode.

Do you know the full stories? Care to share?
/EIP, no need to clutter the thread more than we have right?

I am dating a "geek girl" at the moment and love every min of it. She has her masters in Applied Mathmatics. The only downside is all the math related jokes she sends me.

Zamboro: I'm habitually drawn to these types, but there are downsides. They're usually working the "Geek" angle intentionally, or they're "geeks" for a reason; social anxiety disorders, for instance.

... or maybe they really do RP in an L5R group, own just about everything Heinlein published, fix their own damn' PCs, and hum the Star Blazers theme song.

Meh.

I once dated a great nerd girl. Band geek, knew the entire Adult Swim lineup, etc. Really cute, borderline plain old hot.

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.

Forget nerd girls, I like ones who are self aware now.

kronicfeld: This just in: hot is hot, fat is fat. I'm not getting over your linebacker shoulders and tank ass just because you've read Snow Crash.

Not enough THIS in the entire world.

Also, in no way is this a bookmark.

Wollffeey: In my mind, the closest thing to a nerdy female role-model, for me, is Kari Byron. Plus, she's smokin'.

/One thing I found is that almost all of my nerdy female friends are bisexual, me included. WTF is with that?!


Actually, Kari's more into the artsy type, since she's actually a painter and a sculptor.

Please, all flute players, at least in my bands, were prissy non-geeks. Not gonna say you are, but how about bass clarinet? I even marched with the damn thing. If anything exudes nerdiness, it's that monstrosity.

Whatever happened to "dorks" and "geeks"? I get that nerds are awesome, but don't discount people with equally dorky and geeky personalities. Dorks did create Red vs. Blue, after all. And probably Fark.

Also, nerdy, dorky, and geeky girls don't have to have glasses. They don't even have to dress poorly. I know a few hot nerd girls who actually manage to not look like nerds . . . until you talk to them about Mass Effect.

Geeks can be cool

Nerds can not be coo by definition of being a nerd.


Geeks possess a high level of knowledge on one or more subjects.


I believe you have that backwards.

brigid_fitch: let me give you all the run down;

i haven't seen 8-bit in months
frood is a very rare sight
littlet's quit fark
westbound is in the army and not able to fark often


I haven't seen 8-Bit in a long while, either. Perhaps she's gotten enough ego boost to last her 4-life. Zarkin doesn't slum with us liters (I shoudl really re-new!) much. I didn't know about the model citizen quitting fark; I guess catfights with GM got too played out.

Westbound is in the Army now? That's a big change from the Corps!

cowsspinach: The Velour Fog:


Go on...


What I meant was I can understand why guys hit on her because when you are talking to her shes so intelligent it makes her attractive. Especially, because she doesnt come off like a stuck up snot but a nice smart cute girl.


As much as I love talking to a girl and getting more attracted to her because of what comes out of her mouth, the opposite is horrific. To be so let down when you finally start to talk to a girl is incredibly disappointing.

Nope... I'm a veteran of an incredibly geeky profession, but we still ended up picking on the nerds. You have to be smart and interested in technical details of all sorts of sh*t to be either, but the nerds are the ones that never learn any social skills. And if you can't get a department full of geeks to accept you, you're a f*cking nerd.

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

I don't think that it's a matter of nerdy girls being sexy, but more so that being nerdy doesn't negate being sexy. If she's pretty, giving her some glasses, a book, and nerd style ain't gonna change it. And of course beauty and intelligence are highly desirable to many of us.

Oh yeah...
