A so-called "bad" thing to be before, now and probably in the future. It's been somehow turned into an attack word. What people don't realize is that no kind of progress is made without even an ounce of liberalism in your blood. Civil rights movement? Liberal from MLK Jr. Free speech/checks and balances/etc.? Liberal idea from Enlightenment thinkers. Any kind of new technology? Liberal in the sense that you want to change the existing conditions. Face it. Any kind of change, whether good or bad, is promoted by liberalism.
Ann Coulter: You can not be a liberal and be a Christian.
Probably the biggest health myth propagated by the pharmaceutical industry. The body needs both kinds of cholesterol. There is no such thing as "bad" or "good" cholesterol. The study that was done to test cholesterol as a heart disease contributor was flawed. They tested RABBITS (A VEGETARIAN) and a FOX (A CARNIVORE). Humans are omnivores. Just read your information in books and on the internet. Statins lower your risk for heart disease, but increases other major factors for deaths of other causes.
Pharmaceutical Industry Mark: Cholesterol is a bad thing, blah blah blah blah blah blah blah.
Doctors in training: Yes, I agree with that. Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah.
A nerd is someone who is smart in all subjects, yet focuses on one subject to be a specific interest. There is a difference between a nerd and a geek. A geek would is a wanna-be nerd and can be identified as having a weird accent, pants up to tight, huge glasses and usually not the best looking person around. A nerd, however, does not have to be bad looking and can be accepted by other groups because of his/her other hobbies, such as sports and music.
One other thing to note is that there is something called geek-chic (which is a misnomer as geeks have bad taste and should be called nerd-chic). This style includes carrying a sports-equipment looking bag, small framed glasses and casual clothing.
Boy 1: Winston is such a nerd.
Boy 2: I know, what girl would date him?
Girl 1: Wow, did you see Winston with this glasses today? He looks hot!
Girl 2: I know. You gonna ask him out?
Girl 1: For sure!
