    Did the site really just block out part of the author's name?

    It sounds like you're looking for fan-boy nerds, and not technical/science/math nerds, but I'm a statistician by occupation. In my spare time I've been known to write new procedures for my favorite statistical package.

    Well, I teach English and my favorite authors are Charles ****ens and Jane Austen. My biggest pet peeve is hearing someone say "My Bad". My is a possessive pronoun and you can't own bad!

    Apart from my fascination with "Doctor Who" and "The Big Bang Theory," I'm in your line of nerd. It's pathetic that the last name of one of the greatest writers of the English language is censored by myfitnesspal.

    I con't care about expressions like "My Bad." Of much greater frustration to me are people who can't distinguish "lose" and "loose," and who use "impact" as a verb.

    Time Warner Cable recently came out with a slogan that drives me crazy: "Enjoy Better." It's idiotic.

    I always considered myself a Jock growing up. Played all the sports and played them rather well. But in my late 20's I embraced the world of technology and now all my friends call me the sports nerd. I always have the latest and greatest tech gadget and I use them to track all kinds of sports stats for my boys youth teams. Also when there is computer problems among my family and friends I am the one that gets called. So if all this classifies me as a nerd then I am happy to join the club. :D

    Raging nerd...hmmm...I don't know, It takes me time to figure out any computer realated anything, but I'm really smart with almost everything else, can fix just about anything so far, and I'm in love with an anime character.. Does that count? :laugh:

    I write about video games and tech for a living, so I probably qualify.

    Well if your name has 'OSX' in it, you can be a Nerd, but not a Geek.

    This thread is making me so happy. I see a lot of WoW gamers. Any DDO gamers? When I'm not being mommy and exercising I dabble on there. I'd love more friends that play...

    I do, however, have a special love for science fiction, ever since I discovered at 11 years old that my school library had, weirdly, hundreds of science fiction novels and not a lot else.

    I would have loved to have had your librarian growing up. I have a special place in my heart for all that is science fiction. :)
