Well I was a jock and a nerd in high school. I don't think the two are as mutually exclusive as people think. I took Latin, was in the robotics program and played hockey, ran cross country and rowed crew. I had more friends in the computer lab than I did on the hockey team I played on. I think we do children a disfavor when we try to force them into a one size fits all label. Yes it is fun to wear our nerd badges proudly, but in all honest we are all more complex than a single stereotype.
I know. Was just curious as to whether there was, in fact, a way to measure nerdism. I'm always referring to myself as a hobbyist or gamer, because I see myself as an ordinary everyday bloke who likes games in his spare time.
I know someone who likes to label people, but doesn't realize that no two people are alike. It can be frustrating when she labels someone and then gets upset with them for not acting the way she thinks they should.
Some people are funny.
