It contains the difference between a nerd and a geek (you knew there was one right?)
"A geek possesses a certain passion for specialized knowledge but also a high degree of cultural awareness and poise that a nerd lacks."
And, " If Holden Caulfield was the sensitive loner from the age of nerd oppression then Harry Potter was the magical leader in the age of GEEK EMPOWERMENT."*
*emphasis totally mine
And here's another quote, "They've [geeks, of course] have created a new definition of what it means to be cool, a definition that leaves out the talents of the jocks and the MBA types."*
*No offense to the jocks and MBA types, but you've had your day.
People find my blog searching for geeks all the time. Okay the actual search is "disco era geek", "geek birthday cake" (?), "geeky laugh", "geek mother present" etc. and they don't stick around too long, but that is because they are overcome with the amount of coolness they find here.
Somebody needs to go find those girls that wouldn't me eat lunch with me in the school cafeteria in seventh grade and tell them ... hmmmm.. What would a cool kid say? Oh yeah, NOTHING, they don't even exist in my cool cool world.*
*Please let me have my delusions, they are all I've got.
