2) One who is academically superior to the normal population.

Someone, usually a guy, who is highly confused with the very common geek. Nerds are somewhat attractive and intelligent, and are usually great boyfriends because they haven't had popularity soil their good natured aspects. Unlike the geek, who is unattractive and intelligent, nerds are well known and liked and may be considered "popular".
Artie from "Glee" is a nerd because he is sweet and cute and popular among his friends and also very smart. Puck is not a nerd because Puck is not smart and so he is just considered hot. :)

No Evidence of Recurrent Disease

Originally, medical personnel used he acronyn NED. But, among cancer survivors it has morphed into NERD, and something that can be proudly claimed and congratulated.

Often used as an insult (although should be taken as a compliment), a nerd is a person with a high IQ. Nerd is the opposite of retard and therefore should be taken as a compliment. A nerd will love to do maths, science, computer stuff, watch anime and/or play video games depending on the type of nerd.
Geek: Your such a nerd.
Nerd: Thanks, and your a geek.
Geek: Thanks, wanna do some maths?

A nerd is a being who creates or spawns awesomeness (DO NOT EVER ASSOCIATE WITH GEEKS NOR DORKS). All great things come from nerds. The sphere (or ball, for all you idiots out there.) was created by a nerd, and now the nerd's own invention is used to pummel him upside the face in dodgeball. Also, TV was made by nerds. Google, wikipedia, youtube, youtube videos, and all things that are good come from nerds. Despite all of their contributions, they are ussualy shunned by society. This is because, even though they have created all the means by which people move (cars), communicate (the acronyms used in notes and messages), and think (Television) they sometimes have a deep flaw in their appearance, social skills, or other areas. Essentially, nerds are the martyrs that live a life of social abstinency to further develop mankind in the hope that mankind doesn't devolve. A trifling hope, but without hope we have nothing.
The bible says that :
"The meek shall inherit the Earth."
meek is "those who are socially awkward, but inventive."
Otherwise known as nerdy.

We have created all technology and we will regain it.
