    What's the difference between a geek and a nerd? I always thought that a nerd was the intelligent, glasses version of a geek. What is the answer?

    A geek is someone that always gets picked on,
    a nerd is someone that everyone ignors. LOL

    Geek - the one who gets picked on, and never really changes as they age.

    Nerd - Gets picked on in school, but everyone who did the picking winds up working for him!

    Hmm.. I always thought a geek was the Daniel Jackson character from Star Gate? Maybe I'm admitting I am one by using that reference.
