    I love physics. I don't understand the math/symbolic thinking it involves (even though it intersts me), but theory interests me greatly. All science inspires me on a very spiritual level, I'm just not very good at it. I wish i were.

    Also, I am a huge video game/forumz nerd. I love the internet, and in particular nerd culture/internet communities that form around it. I just did a study for a class i took on Global Sexualities...the idea was to explore space and place theory and how it related to the idea of "sexual identity" in different cultures, with an emphasis on LGBTQ sexuality. I chose to do my study on nerd/gaming communities of the LGBTQ persuasion. It was awesome because I basically got to spend my whole semester playing MMORPGs and participating in LGBTQ-friendly guilds...and it got me an A! I actually plan on taking the findings of this study and going further with it, as they led me to believe that there's quite a lot of potential for LGBTQ activism in internet/gaming/forum places.

    I'm uber-nerdy.

    Always have been.



    I was a bio major for 2.5 years and a math major for a year.

    I read non-fiction science books, and have subscribed to Science News for several years.

    I tend to surprise people a lot, they see this affable, attractive girl and, when immersed in conversation come to realize that I have a lot of things, thoughts and opinions going on in my head regarding almost anything.

    Hahahhaaa, I love this, that element of shock and surprise that I receive.

    I'm like an uber-nerd incognito.

    I suppose a know a bit about computers/programming, and like discussing physics with my physicist brother but I wouldn't consider myself nerdy per se no.

    I'm more of a geek than a nerd.

    ^What's the difference?

    Between a geek and a nerd?



    I think that some nerds can be geeky, but that one can be a nerd and not be geeky if that makes sense.

    I would never classify myself as geeky, no.

    Nerdy, hell yes.

    Geeky, no.

    I'm a geek because I obsess over videogames (and movies and music).

    Geek can be losers. Nerds tend to be productive.

    "Nerds tend to be productive"

    ????

    No.

    I know plenty of nerds, myself, my father, my friends, my ex, all of whom aren't the least bit "productive" in their nerdy pursuits.

    Nerds and geeks can both be losers, I guess, but that's sad, for someone to be a loser, I don't really like to think of people as losers, in fact, I rarely, if ever, do.

    Some people are pathetic and sad, but that doesn't make them a "loser" in my books.

    Anyhow, I think nerds and geeks do/like things they do simply because they do, and damn what other people think, y'know?

    It has very little to do with productivity, imo.

    Same here. It always irks me when a math person doesn't see the importance of literature and the written/spoken word or the arts. Or when someone into humanities neglects their body (the importance of physical stimulation like training/exercise) and often probability.
