So true. So true. I'm working to perfect my skills so I can se humor when it's right.

But cool ppl vs. nerds- as humans, we'll always categorize. I don't think one is better than the other. Why can't be al be friends? Group hug anyone?

I dunno Angel. Sure nerds like Einstein, Galileo, and Shakespeare (was he a nerd?) have done a lot for society. The cool people, if that's what we want to call the more socially accepted people, have become rock stars, CEOs, and....hm...then again, I only remember the outcasts because they're the ones who left their imprints on society. Regardless, the cool people have their place- such as motivating the nerds indirectly.

Cool VS Nerd

Nerd is synonymous with uncool. What is an arrogant way of saying that nerds are automaticly uncool. Is it becuse they care (about school, pc whatever), then that means the ''cool' are those who are automaticly careless?
The topic is just arrogant, as all of those who concider themselves to be one of the ''cool''. Or the topic was just a joke to start a discussion, cuz this is a DISCUSSION forum, what makes the topic irellevant. This waste of time descussion may also be the reason to why he started the topic, wich is good, and a good laugh to watch.

both cool and nerds are social denominations, not relevant to knowlesge or interest (this is just used for profiling).

What I'm saying is that these labels are determined by social skills, not information. The ability to speak ingagingly and command audience, as opposed to awkward or insecure faultering or "signs of weakness".

There are perfectly good speakers who are considered nerds because of the irrational association with weak social skills related to empirical knowledge.

Thats why there is the term nerd, and the term genius, in part. One is the redemption from the label that refers to weak social skills.

A nerd is a nerd partially because because no one understands what they are talking about, a genius is one who is able to communicate the idea, and of course hopefully advance the knowledge.
