    Being a geek is cool , I don't get this 'culture'(if you can call it that) of being thick . There's nothing funny about it , just look like a total ****.

    Embrace your geekiness , embrace your brain ! There's nothing cooler than intelligence !!!

    depends what you mean by geek
    if by geek you actually have some developed hobbies/interests - be a geek. that's actually good
    you can be a geek and cool. there's no dichotomy. I find that the most interesting and funny people are usually somewhat "geeky". me and my friends all look and seem very "normal" but we're a bunch of secret nerds deep down, and only we know about it :lol: took us a while to discover that we were all secret nerds underneath our facades of normality

    geek
    One of four titles used to classify someone based on their technical and social skills. The other three titles are nerd, dork, and normie. The difference between the four titles can be easily shown in table form:
    ................ Technical ...... Social
    Title ............ Skills ......... Skills
    ---------- ---------------- ------------
    Normie ......... No ............. Yes
    Geek ........... Yes ............. Yes
    Nerd ............ Yes ............. No
    Dork ............ No .............. No

    Normie: A normal person. Blah.

    Geek: An outwardly normal person who has taken the time to learn technical skills. Geeks have as normal a social life as anyone, and usually the only way to tell if someone is a geek is if they inform you of their skills.

    All the techie CEOs would likely be classed as geeks and those companies are making the most money right now (Apple's margins are ****ing wild), so statistically yeah the chance would be greater, but not by huge amounts that people who give themselves the geek label like to think in order to feel about themselves.

    some of my friends like anime and it took until 2nd year for us to all spontaneously realise that we all liked it - we just didn't want to be the only "nerdy" person in our group :lol: but we were all that person. now me and one of my friends are really getting into computer specs and all that **** which is potentially worse
    I would wear my glasses if I thought I suited them :lol: my eyesight is 17.5/18 which is really not very good but I still don't wear glasses due to it. not even contacts.
    I have these: extra nerdy:
