    Many of those "nerds" wear that badge with pride, they also carry a 40 S&W concealed and shoot PRS matches. :)

    A nerd would be able to quantify "many".
    Pray elaborate.

    You are describing hipsters. Here is a venn diagram to aid you in knowing the difference

    I don't think just Nerds do this. A lot of people who get into firearms start off with all the most awesome tacti-cool stuff. Then they tone down and figure out what really works for them.

    As someone who fly's his Nerd Flag high, I don't take offense at being called a Nerd. Though, I do take offense to being mistaken for a tight pants wearing, PBR swilling hipster.

    I have too many nerd flags to fly all at once. Actually, according to the diagram, I would be more accurately described as a geek. :)

    Leaving smokes for cape is one thing. Going from no smoking to vaping? Man that's a leap.
    Reminds me of a bunch of lepricones..

    Nerd?? Probably not. I'm not socially inept enough for that. Maybe geek is a better description. Overall, I'm probably too darn good looking to qualify. You guys that have met me know what I'm talking about ;) :p :D

    I'd rather be a geek or nerd than a hipster though.

    That's an insult to nerds.
    I hate vaping, vapers, anything that has to do with it.
    And discs golf is for those who gave up on the hackie sack.
    Hippies, potheads, and virgins.

    I do not want to offend anyone:s0002: and I want to say my BEST friends are Nerds ! :s0110: My own observation has been that for some reason 75% of Nerds have glasses. :s0145:50% of Nerds smoke Pot, eat a big bowl Cereal out of plastic Tupperware and its usually Cocoa Puffs or Fruity Pebbles. Then shortly afterwards they will :s0062: play Xbox 360, The game Magic or Minecraft ! Nerds are somewhat quiet creatures, are intelligent, can do anything regarding Electronics :s0044:especially Computers. :s0083:They are my BEST friends because a vast amount of them are Trustworthy individuals ! :s0155:

    Nerds are a mysterious bunch these days.
    Nerds can be larping in the local park, playing magic the gathering with 4 other dudes who also have never seen an actual in person boob, a black ops guy hacking the info of 20 million people in the govt HR system, or bill gates giving away more money than 90% the country will never make in 10 life times.

    I tried Disc Golf a couple times. I thought "Hey this is fun, it gets me outside, its relatively cheap..." etc.. 2 lost Frisbees, a couple bee stings and a whole lot of swearing later I figured out I wasn't the disc golf "type". My dog was thankful because he got some really thick Frisbees to chew on.

    Sometimes when I jump in the Prius , put in my Backstreet Boys CD, then buckle up before I start to move the car and watch the backup camera for cats.... I think I might be a nerd.
