Other meanings for dag include:

An Australasian slang term referring to a likably goofy or unsophisticated person

Looks like it's australian rather than american. Almost the same meaning as dork.

to be honest, and im not demeaning your role in any way well done on being elected, but id say its a waste of valuable character space
Wow at some of the people in this thread, of COURSE its relevant. Its a pretty great extra-curricular thing, you'd be stupid not to mention it. Its exactly the kind of thing a PS is for.

I would mention it (and am going to).

Anyway, what about this nerd thing? I hate to refer to my own situation again because I don't like to point out that I am Dutch, but here in the Netherlands we have only one word for both meanings; geek and nerd. And that word is nerd. So. If I were to go to Cambridge I'd be a nerd. :smile:
