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

You do not like nerdy guys, no.

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.


Liar!! LIIARRRR!!!!

Sarcastica75: Sir Vanderhoot: Why did I just get the image of a peacock strutting into a henhouse and making a big deal that it had bigger feathers?

Because you took me too seriously?
/Why so serious.
//My feathers are nine inches long.
///*stroke*


I didn't say I thought it was serious, I just had the image in my head and I laughed. I've seen my teammates pull out the proverbial feathers a few times (like whenever the women's gymnastics team uses our pool in mornings and he just has to dive tower) and it always cracks me up.

/ok, now really off to shower. Chlorine is awful this morning

Totally agree about band camp, though my first girl on girl didn't happen until later in college from an anime chick. Now those are some freaky geeks.


Umm, go on....

The Velour Fog: Annnnnd you're awesome

Oh, please, most band camp chicks had their first guy and girl kisses at band camp... Yeah, me and the lead snare drummer fooling around in the drum closet was fun, too... First time my boobies were groped.
Admittedly, my first girl kiss was at a band party after a football game one night. There wasn't even alcohol involved. She ended up eating french fries out of my cleavage and licking ice cream off my thigh. Band boys are easily amused.


WCHeadhunter: And you got big tits!

I love the arguments about what constitutes a subjective term. Maybe if you guys work real hard at it you'll nail down some standard definitions for "cool" and "rad" too.

Zimmy: Oddly enough, this.

I've had two girlfriends make me choose between playing DnD 2 nights a week or her. Then I turn it around and make her choose between something she likes and me, to get the point of what she's doing across. They leave.


I've never played D&D, but there is no way in hell I'd force a boyfriend to give it up. There are a lot worse things a guy can do two nights a week than play D&D with his friends. That's just ridiculous.
Besides, D&D nights would be perfect times to masterbate and watch UFC.

This *is* the internets after all. The majority of people don't care what you're typing, only that you might be up for some DVDA. Huge tracts of land/milky orbs/boobies only hasten the BIE requests.

Being a nerd requires intelligence. Biatches don't qualify.

/no girls on my internets!
 
2008-06-23 11:36:55 AM  
I would disagree. Being a sports nut subtracts too many points to overcome and still be a nerd.

I'm not what you'd call a "nut" for it, but I don't think the fact that I wear my football jersey and go hoot at the bar on fall weekends quite negates the closetful of Star Wars novels (for shame) and the myriad other expressions of abject geekery.

See my second comment, where I closed the AW tag. But I got ya. Tis a funny image indeed. I often find the word itself humorous. Peacock. Heh-heh. I guess I was waiting for AntSoi to come in and say the usual: "You always do this, blah, blah, attention whore, I fail to see you are just joking, blah, blah..."

/Truth is I've always been nerdy, tho. If not the rest of me, my brain does ooze with sexitude. (Lulz.)
//I'm jealous of you now because I've not been swimming in MONTHS, tho I can still see the damage chlorine did to my hair.

Now, I could do one of three things, 1) ignore you and stop having fun, 2) act coquettish and skirt the issue, making you squirm, or 3) describe all the incidents in detail and risk getting banninated.

I think I'll go with number 2. ;)

Someone already posted a pic but this is the type of thing Not Another Teen Movie parodied. While, by the will of the gods, some goddess-like intersection of a Venn diagram exists where mainstream hotness meets quirky intellect and OCD-like obsessions towards all things Star Wars, most hot nerd girls aren't nerds and most nerd girls aren't hot.

/And those who aren't won't go for you farkers.
//Or me for that matter.

Oh... and on the Cindy Crawford thing. She dropped out of Northwestern after ONE QUARTER... so she got about as far into Chemical Engineering as Calculus and Chemistry A-01. You might as well say she got a scholarship to study Hindu Underwater Basket Weaving with a minor in Gerbil Studies.

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

/FTFY


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."


Ha! Last night my bf and I were arguing about the definition of a nerd. That first definition agrees with mine (He required extensive gaming knowlege and/or cosplay to be a true nerd and asserted that anything less was still some flavor of mainstream. Yes, he is way more of a nerd than me). The second definition...well I guess it's good that times have changed.

\Whether or not being a farkette does, I think post-coital arguments about the definition of a nerd qualifies me as a bona fide member of the club, btw
\\fairly hot too, if I may say so myself
\\\but no glases (curse my 18/20 vision!)
