a geek, however the average nerd does not consider him/herself awesome, like a geek. A nerd will usually be more rigorus in their intellectual activities rather than in nonintellectual activities.
Frank was a nerd, however his friend Joe (his LAN party friend) was a geek who was shmoozing with friends.

A nerd is an interesting sort of idea. To some, the idea comes simply: glasses, nasal, scratchy voice. Inhalers, pocket protectors. Whatever the hell.
I think a nerd is something else. Someone who has a large IQ, sure. But doesn't act that way. A nerd is a person who plays video games, spend their money on new releases and Trading Card Games. Ones who, online, are actually, well, literate. A nerd can be extremely annoying or really cool. Depending on your point of view. And hey, since they have a non existant life, they have all the time to talk to you. One more thing: Nerds like to trash talk a lot of things behind your backs. Rap, emo, goths.. Whatever is around the bend.
Face it. Nerds whoop your butt. Not only are they smart, but they can have you on your butt crying when it comes to the infamous XBox queen. Halo.

A nerd is a person who is smarter then your average person. Y'know the people who are going to grow up and make 1,000,000 dollars a day.

Jocks on the other hand are the people that make fun of nerds, for being smart. Makes no sense.

They just don't understand they are going to drop out of highschool join a NFL team for a week, break their leg and then have to work at McDonalds for the rest of their life.
The richest people in the world are nerds

Bill gates for example.

a Nerd i someone who is basically scrutinised for thier intelligence, by the mindless idiots (you may know them as townies, neds or whatever)
the plain truth is that it is these people that make the world work, they run the show, and what they do is taken for granted. without the nerd there is no NASA, no rocket, no satellite TV. why is noone thankfull for this?
