I play video games
I play with cars
I know more useless info about cars, their engine and body codes, special models/years/racing heritage than is likely healthy.
I didn't start dating until my early 20's (that's seals the deal, no?)

I work in the cg biz.
I collect animated gifs.
I obsess over resolution settings.
My favorite passtime is getting stoned and drawing.
I update my msn avatar > 3 times a week.
I find the discovery channel and PBS enlightening.
I'm a sucker for ww2 documentaries.
I have depleted asthma pump canisters scattered about the house.
What's a "sports"?

that doesn't make you a nerd.. that makes you a cocaine addict ;)

i don't do coke, ev. i got kicked in the face in grade three by my crush because i was teasing him and ever since then my nose bleeds every winter as well as when i get colds (like now).

- i won't date anyone with poor grammar or syntax.

- i swoon for other nerds.

-i took latin in high school for fun
-more interested in people's book collections than people at times

- I am blind without my glasses.
- I only program web pages with a plain text editor. Frontpage can kiss my ass.
- I can type 140 wpm. When I'm "in the zone", my typing sounds akin to a jackhammer or a machine gun.
- I am obsessive-compulsive about my own grammar, spelling and sentance structure.
- I work with computers all day, and when I get home from work, the first thing I do is go on the computer.
- I love science fiction and fantasy books.
- I started playing video games shortly after I started walking. I will pwn your n00b ass in Quake III Arena or PGR3.
- I built my own PC.
- I got an Xbox 360 on launch night. I will very likely do the same for the Nintendo Wii. Sony, however, can suck my left nut.
- I spend more money on computer and video games than I do on clothes and alcohol.
- I'm afraid I may be the only nerd in this thread above a class 5. Kife and d.code are potential class 4's, but the fact that they currently have hot girlfriends immediately knocks them down at least one level.
- In Jr High, I got beat up because I accidentally told my best friend that I read encyclopaedias for fun.
