Awesome List: Obama and Nerds

I realize now that I should've just put those two videos in the Awesome List too. Apparently I'm having a hard time getting back into the swing of things.

This Settles It

I gave up trying to differentiate between Geeks and Nerds a long time ago (much less insisting that I'm one or the other), but if I had to settle on some definitions, I'd lean towards the ones presented in this Venn Diagram. [/Film]

I don't typically differentiate either. I remember when geeks were guys who bit the heads off chickens at the carnival, though thankfully have never seen this in action. I go with the Revenge of the Nerds policy; you're not a jock? Then you are a nerd.

And where is Spaz on that chart? Spazes (Spazi?) deserve equal rights too. :-)

Would Spaz be a circle inside of Social Ineptitude? Or maybe the overlap between Social Ineptitude and Drug Use?

I don't know that any of them are as clearly defined as the chart. I think Dennis Finch from Just Shoot Me was a spaz... I don't know how smart or stupid he was though. He was certainly obsessed, but on many things, including cats and figure skating (?). I do think dorks and spazes are a similar animal, though not sure drug use is a commonality to either.

I define Booger from RotN as a geek, though he hardly fits the standard by today's definition. Steve Urkel is definitely a nerd, but certainly a spaz as well.

How about this addition?

HA! That's awesome!
