Oldschol Nerdery

Guardian Unlimited Film | Features | We are all nerds now: “According to the Collins English Dictionary, a nerd is something you emphatically don’t want to be. It defines the term as referring to ‘1) a boring or unpopular person’ or ‘2) a stupid and feeble person’, both of which sound a little harsh. Most likely the definition is a hangover from the old days, when the nerd was relegated to the library and only emerged to have sand kicked in his face or get a wedgie. Times have changed.”
