I don't agree with classifying a brilliant mind like Sagan or Newton simply for being smart, but I brace at the insult of calling Napoleon Dynamite a nerd.

No one said that these people are NOTHING more than nerds. that's just one thing about them. if you did a quiz about people with blonde hair, it doesn't mean that that's the only distinguishing feature of that person, it's just one.

Einstein was far away from being a nerd xD

Hawking was closer to, but I am sure that if he wouldn't be on a wheelchair he would be a soul of the company

By a dictionary definition: a person who is extremely enthusiastic and knowledgeable about a particular subject, especially one of specialist or niche interest AND/OR an unfashionable person who lacks social skills or is boringly studious. So, where does this conflict with the greatest minds?

Also, I feel like you should use a less hot picture of Isaac Newton if you want to say he's a nerd.

He may have been handsome, he still lacked social skills and most probably never got laid ;).

Einstein was not a nerd, there's no arguing about that. Please remove him.

Seems a loose usage of "nerd." Looks like the QM is using nerd, geek, and dork interchangeably. Meh...as a representative of at least 2 of these categories, i'm good with it.

Anybody else get really frustrated when it wouldn't take Alfonso Ribeiro before realizing they wanted the character? Then went on to do the same with Emma Watson...

Is Clark Kent a 'nerd'? Just because he wears fake glasses?
+1
Level 34
May 16, 2024
I was confused about that too. Peter Parker is a nerd, but Clark Kent? Clark Kent isn't known for being exceptionally smart or knowledgeable. He's only quiet and not very confident, and even then that's just part of the disguise. He isn't actually those things.

At first I thought the picture of Clark Kent was the republican speaker of the house circa 2023-24 from the great state of Louisana, ie Johnson.
