And yet again I've proved myself to be nerdy, to yet another one of my teachers.
Today in science I was the first person to answer a question, and it was one where most other people were just sitting there looking confused. Really easy if you actually listen in science and psychology: 'What is quantitative data'. I mean, c'mon. She then asked if anyone knew what qualitative data was, and BF piped up with the answer.
So now she apparently has a 'pair of smart cookies' in her class. I'm happy BF is there - we have races to see who can finish the questions on time, so it keeps me working hard instead of slacking off. Yay for molar mass and learning it in one lesson.

She's a really good teacher, though she did call BF 'darling' and scare him. But he gets scared of stuff like that Grin
I just sit there and feel him suffer. He was cringing inside, I know.

you might need a tree gene implant if you hope to live that long; not that I'm saying you're old or anything....

I guess I'm a bit unusual - I'm a scientist and I love facts and detalis but not really a true geek.  I don't (at least as I see 'geek') bury myself in details for the sake of it...

I like this from Wiki:
:. In a 2007 interview on The Colbert Report, Richard Clarke said the difference between nerds and geeks is "geeks get it done."[3] Julie Smith defined a geek as "a bright young man turned inward, poorly socialized, who felt so little kinship with his own planet that he routinely traveled to the ones invented by his favorite authors, who thought of that secret, dreamy place his computer took him to as cyberspace—somewhere exciting, a place more real than his own life, a land he could conquer, not a drab teenager's room in his parents' house."[4] "Geeks in suits clothing" is phrase which has been used for IT technical stars which also have knowledge about business needs.:

wait a mo... only a real geek would have done that... Shocked

I'm a gaming geek, and an education nerd.

Well, a real life gaming geek. Not computer games, I suck at them. But I am certainly D&D geeky.

As for education nerd: I love English, I enjoy learning, I love almost every subject I take (chemistry gets the love-hate relationship). The teachers are awesome, and I respect them for putting up with the majority of the students.

And people look at me oddly when they off-handedly suggest picking on the teachers and I give them a flat out 'no'

Yeah. Nerd is me.
