Dorks vs. Nerds

I'd like to take this opportunity to clarify something important.

There's a difference between dorks and nerds.

Although most people use these terms interchangeably, there's a very important distinction. A coolness factor.

Guy #2 wears briefs. He has a six figure job in insurance, watches Sportscenter every night and his idea of getting wild is having a few beers and a shot of Jaeger with his boys on Friday nights. (He spends Saturday nights watching Bruckheimer movies with his girlfriend, who he's been dating since college.) He loves Creed, he thinks Jay Leno is hilarious, his mom still does most of his shopping for him, and he's vaguely uncomfortable around homosexuals or anyone with a tattoo.

Guy #1 has developed an innovative new technique for sequencing DNA. In his free time he's into horticulture and collecting original Star Wars memorabilia. He's never had sex but has a porn collection that includes chicks dressed as valkyries. In the moments when he's not thinking about ways to up his standing in Magick: The Gathering, he's busy devising a plan for converting his house to run purely on solar energy. He once designed a bionic arm.

So who's cool? Who's going to change the world?

Nerds rule.

Thank you.

The world's fucked anyway (unless my revolution works) so I'd rather hang out with someone who has a few beers and takes a shot. However, if the nerd would let me take a look at his porn collection, it might be a different story.

They call you a nerd, a dork or a geek, turn around and piss on their cheek...
