Re: Is bobbym doing ok?

Hi Sarah Rebekah 13;

Hello! How are you today? I always mention that this is your thread and you will never be left out. I always answer your posts when I see them.

How are you doing with your learning?

Bobby, y'know what I've discovered? I think you don't know the meaning of the word 'geek'. But I've been trying to establish the difference between 'nerd' and 'geek'. Do you have any useful theories?

Re: Is bobbym doing ok?

I told you what the Wikipedia definition is. Someone who tears the head off of bats or chickens or snakes and eats them, raw.

Oh yeah. Did Wiki have any other definition? A disambiguation maybe? Did they have a definition for nerd? My widget dictionary says a nerd is 'a foolish or contemptible person who lacks social skills or is boringly studious.' That sounds a bit like me, actually.

A nerd is fine. Contemptible? I don't think study is contemptible. I think being stupid when you have an alternative is contemptible.

Re: Is bobbym doing ok?

Agreed. Lacking social skills is not contemptible. Or foolish for that matter. Although, I looked it in the Thesaurus as well and it had geek there as well... My dictionary says for geek: 'a unfashionable or socially inept person. A person with an eccentric devotion to a particular interest.' And then it says 2: 'A carnival performer who does wild or disgusting acts.' Maybe that's what Wiki was talking about...

Re: Is bobbym doing ok?

Are you socially inept. Are you unfashionable? Do you have an eccentric devotion to a particular interest? Whatever that means. Looks like that dictionary swallowed another dictionary.

Re: Is bobbym doing ok?

I'm very much socially inept. Of course I'm not unfashionable, a checked shirt and comic book T-shirts never did anybody any harm. Eccentric devotion?... They had 'computer geek' as an example. But particular, I guess not.

Hi Sarah;

That's good. I am sure you will do fine. That's young isn't it? I didn't learn how to drive until I was much older. And I was a very bad driver!

Hi people... I guess I'm a science geek now, so eccentric devotion can be ticked off the list. But my mum keeps saying I'm unfashionable.
