Quote from: "Hanes"
I've noticed that female nerds often call their male nerd friends "nerds," but that male nerds rairly refer to their male nerd friends as "nerds."  Anyone else notice this?


I can only offer my personal experience on the subject: male nerds in general don't call me "nerd" but I think that's because I'm not as nerdy as them. My co-hosts have (I believe) called me nerd or geek but it's rare. My non-nerdy friends, both male and female, have been known to yell nerrrrrrrd when I occasionally go overboard with the science or trivia or math. They say it with love, though.


I work a bunch of fairly nerdy guys (I'm in IT), and I'm probably nerdier than most of them.  When they call me nerd it's done with affection, and honestly I'd have a hard time disputing it (as an example I know way too much about Doctor Who and other British science fiction TV. And no, I'm not British, which seems to make that tidbit even nerdier). Luckily for me by this point in my life I'm quite happy and comfortable with the label, and I think it makes me more interesting.  I'm a nerd, out and proud!  Still, if I'm getting the nerd label from nerdy guys, I sometimes feel like the non-nerd mainstream views me as a different species altogether.

I wholly agree that nerdy girls are hot. My crushes have a statistically significant tendency towards nerdy brunettes with glasses.

I may have inadvertently implied that the label of "nerd" is a bad thing.  This was not my intent.  While I'm not a fan of broad labels, despite their recognized necessity at times, I wouldn't be, and am not, offended by being called a nerd.  Furthermore, I realize that any term, can be used at a term of affection, and nerd is no different (Ma has been known to say "you little shit" in reference to me).  Conotation is more important that denotation.

I'd love to get into a discussion of labels and naming rights, but I think that's beyond the scope of this thread.

Here's what I hate about Danica...

I saw her book on math for young girls at Barnes & Noble and thought it sounded like a great idea. Then I actually looked at the book.

Check out the bottom right of the book:


I looked through the book, and it's an actual f*ing horoscope. [/img]

Sorry I haven't updated! All the really amusing stuff made it to air, I think. We're recording a 5x5 tonight, so maybe...

STEVE: So I found this app called "Right Click," and...
JAY: Steve you didn't know how to right click?
ME: Seriously man what's wrong with you?
JAY: How could you not know how to do that, Steve?
ME: You needed to download an app for that?
STEVE: . . .

A guy called me a geek once. a 'cute geek.' He tried to explain that it was good, and different from nerd.


We did not go on a second date  :(

Any chance of giving us a quick synopsis of what equipment you guys are using to record? Unless you've already done that..

Could be interesting for us audio geeks.
