Geeks and Nerds

i was chatting with a friend.. we talked about lots of stuff from bikes, pets, food and things that girls like.. he then asked if i was techie.. i told him yes because i'm such a geek... then he told me that he is a nerd.. so i asked him what was the difference between a geek and a nerd? so the geek inside me researched the net and this is what i found out... from wikipedia and merriam-webster.com

Geek

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 : a carnival performer often billed as a wild man whose act usually includes biting the head off a live chicken or snake 2 : a person often of an intellectual bent who is disliked 3 : an enthusiast or expert especially in a technological field or activity geek>


Nerd

Nerd is a term often bearing a derogatory connotation or stereotype, that refers to a person who passionately pursues intellectual activities, esoteric knowledge, or other obscure interests that are age inappropriate rather than engaging in more social or popular activities. Therefore, a nerd is often excluded from physical activity and considered a loner by peers, or will tend to associate with like-minded people.

1 : an unstylish, unattractive, or socially inept person; especially : one slavishly devoted to intellectual or academic pursuits nerds>
