Redundant thread! Please kill. This was already discussed in General Discussion, and not that long ago (I saw the topic when I was over at the preview site)
so sorry admins / mods
This topic was prompted by the following exchange on another WTH thread:
SomeoneSo what makes a nerd these days?Somebody elsePrepare to be shocked-
If you can find anyone on this forum who isn't a nerd I will be shocked.
Not everyone who draws and posts their art here actually likes comics, or video games, or any of the rest of that sort of thing.
Classic nerd (when I was growing up):
1. Usually one of the smarter kids in class, generally quiet (I qualified)
2. Liked to read (I qualified – still do)
3. Not much into sports (I was on a couple of randon jv teams - Never followed college or professional sports – pretty much qualified)
4. Into computers (not me)
5. On the A/V squad (nope)
6. Socially awkward (eh – depended on the crowd)
Now, if you update that, I think 1, 3, and 6 still apply. Item 4 is radically different; everyone internets in one way or another. But maybe replace it with comics and video games? Is that today's nerd?
Don't know if this thread belongs here, but I figured, wth
