Sigh,...I'm a "Geek",...but my wife calls me & my sons "Nerds". The Mrs is a non-geek, and I luv sci-fi & horror flicks - but I don't quote dialog like a nerd does.

Take the good traits of the two, combine them. Discard the bad traits, add about 10 tons of bad-ass. And there I am.

I don't label myself as either. I thought the distinctions made in that picture where rather arbitrary, and I found myself wondering what kind of muppet spends his time making things like that? I mean it must have taken time... Why?

I can't think of anyone having called me either to my face. I guess it must have happened. I've been called all sorts of things over the years; a dork, a dumbass, odd (nothing like hearing that from a girl you like), fat fuck, hammer thrower (old guy at the gym last week), mighty midget (kids say the darndest things), dickhead, paleface (monitor tans are sex right?), cancer-child (first time I shaved my head)... The list goes on. I suppose being labeled a geek or nerd wouldn't be so bad. It beats being nicknamed "the plague", like a guy I know.

Hey, at least most of us are the type that others think twice before even commenting. My wife and family are the ones that say it. To everyone else "Asshole" is just fine. Especially since they'll get an asswhupping if they aren't careful.

I think I'll go with geek except I have some traits of being a nerd. I graphics design on Arch Linux.

Hmm, I'm a bit suspicious of the tenuous Mac vs PC inclusion.

I suspect this was put together buy some Apple fan boy, a species far inferior to an honest-to-goodness geek, in my book.

The guy on the left looks more like a wanker to me.
