I have to stop reading the comic late at night. I almost woke up my roommate I laughed so hard.

That being said, I need a new copy of Godel-Escher-Bach. My current one is about 25 years old and falling apart.

Re: What is a nerd?

I've always defined 'nerd' as "One who is too smart for their own good, and mildly socially inept", a geek is "A nerd who has social skills", and a dork is "Some idiot who sits around playing Halo all day.

I'm somewhere between geek and nerd.
