Do you consider yourself a "nerd"?

I might be an oddball nerd. I do everything from dressing up with my wife and kids to going to comiccon and building pcs. However, I was also a record-setting athlete in high school, going out for olympic training. I did work for NASA, but also am a war vet. I might fit in multiple categories, lol.
I praise the name of Jesus.

Geek maybe, but I'm not smart enough to be a nerd (fractions...).

Given the place where I work, you're automatically granted nerd status. Obsessing over measurements. Been a geek for a long time though.

I get a twitch in my eye when people can't distinguish between nerd and geek.

Anyone that uses the terms "peasant" and "master race" is a bonafide nerd.

No. I consider myself a gamer. Cause that's what everyone who plays games are.

Yes, but not for gaming reasons - nonetheless, I'm proud of it.

This seems strangely appropriate for this thread:

Definitely. I own a gaming PC, I play strategy board games with friends, I buy comic books (trade paperbacks anyways), I read sci fi... whatever. I'm a nerd. I'd rather own it than hide it.

No im a lean mean sex machine. They dont call me the italian stallion for nothing. gf does hate me gaming but to bad. Strange sidenot... she cant stand it and dont watch but for some reason she really got into far cry 3 with me. She would watch me for hours on end telling me what to do. Was very weird but i enjoyed it.
