That's not just nerds; it's sensible people. - PositronWildhawk

I hate PE am I a nerd? - Jake09

I'm the nerdiest in my group of friends and yet I'm also the sportiest considering I can keep up with all the jocks in my class who are total dummies. I like PE but my friends don't even try to participate really.

4 You know more people online than in person

Never seen a more obvious number one in my life. Knowing most people online defines the "nerd"!

Yep, this is me, I have more friends online than in real life. I just do not follow trends like many of the other people do. - AnimeDrawer

Preps at my school know most people through internet. So they are nerds? That can't be right.

This is so true...I have 1243 friends online...

5 Read the dictionary because you want to.

The sad thing is that I actually do this...

Sometimes I do this because I want to learn interesting, new words that might be funny and comical. And I thought no one did this, but apparently, it is a thing. I sometimes do want to read the dictionary. - AnimeDrawer

I love words, what's wrong with this? I should try that sometime, I'll improve my vocabulary skills even more! - Merilille

When I was 5, I was obsessed with The Junior Dictionary & Thesaurus. - lovefrombadlands

7 You try to levitate out of bed using the Force

lol this is freaking hilarious... - Dead_Frozen

Totally, man! My thoughts exactly. I would totally want to levitate all Phoebe Halliwell style out of bed by using the Force but it didn't work out.

I imagine I have Spiderman's web shooter so I keep trying to shoot the web so it can help me get up from my bed. #Nerds Rule

I don't - mayamanga

8 You own over 1000 video games

My Best Nerd Friend Liam, owns over 9, 000 video games in his house, and he likes to play every video game. He never leaves the house. All he does is play video games and never leave the house. That's why Liam is such a Nerd.

Well I am having only one sign of being a nerd which is this one but it is not necessary I am not a nerd any angle but I am a good gamer that doesn't mean I am a nerd

lol! #1 way to get a girlfriend.

I only own 4 and they are for the Nintendo 3ds - mayamanga

10 You celebrate geeky holidays like pi Day (March 14), Star Wars Day (May 4th), etc.

Yesterday was National star wars day I am a total star wars nerd! By the way I took some college lessons on microbiology when I was in second grade and am in the #1 USA education program known as the "STATE OF Texas GIFTED AND TALENTED PROGRAM" which we know as Expo as in EXpotential POtential. And I am going to be in this year's STEM academies as in Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics.

May the fourth be with you! Ohh and don't forget towel day.

I would only celebrate PI day for one reason: Pie. I'm awful at math and I hate, no reason to celebrate it. As for Star Wars, much as I like it I don't celebrate may the 4th - Therandom

My birthday is on May 4

14 You watch The Big Bang Theory because it's touching, not because it's funny

I am a nerd. Most people on this lists aren't real nerds. The Big Bang Theory is deemed unwatchable in every sense by myself and all of my different nerd friends.

No kidding! I can totally relate to Sheldon (he is a theoretical physicist, I am a "theoretical physicist in training" as I enjoy saying.

It's nice to see a popular television show which tackles issues that I face in my day-to-day life. It's refreshing.

Meh I the that show - Lunala

16 If someone asks you what the answer to EVERYTHING is, you immediately respond with '42'.

It's the meaning of life! On Vine, when that kid says that 10+9= 21, we all thought that he was stupid. but he wasn't. There was a higher meaning. 21 is half of 42... - ethanmeinster

42 is the answer to life, the universe, and everything. Thank you for being such a good read Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

You've just reminded me that I'm getting nerdier and nerdier

Why? What about 17? - lovefrombadlands

17 When seeing a popular girl; you ask her what elements are in hair shampoo

I'd ask Camilla this, and at the end I'd say, because it's making you ugly. - AnonymousChick

When a op ulnar girl sees me she asks about my hair because it reaches my hips, their always telling me to cut it so I usually try to avoid the annoying brats

Miss I like your hair, did you put some Hydrogen and Carbon to it?

I don't like this not only boys are nerds

19 You are obsessed in other peoples grades

I'm not competitive, I just have to know where they're at or I go crazy.

I do that all the time. But not for competition I just NEED to know. - CartoonsGirl

I'm way too competitive to NOT know other people's grades. - PianoQueen

I'm probably the smartest girl in my class, but that isn't good enough for me. - FennikenFan9

Iyaah in varsity you check how far other people's marks are from yours

20 You watch the History Channel

I am TOTALLY obsessed with the H2 channel! (The regular history channel is TREMENDOUSLY boring-nothing historic REGULARLY comes on! Only a bunch of useless reality shows. )

Yeah I love history

No, I hate history! - lovefrombadlands

I may be a nerd b if there's one I subject I suck at its HSIE (history and geography currently) but for some reason can still get either the top mark or in the top 4. Always am top girl though all the other females (except my bestie) are bragging about how long they studied and answering all the revision questions in class right while I'm sitting here reading 'city of fallen angels' bored to death, yet when we compare exam results they barely pass.

21 You bring a calculator with you everywhere you go

Calculators are of the most significant tools that a nerd should ALWAYS carry with them! They come most in handy when dealing with large numbers such as the speed of light or Planck time, other than that any nerd could just use their brains.

Damn... I guess I am a nerd. My calculator is my best friend though. I don't think I ever left it all alone. You know your a nerd if you value your calculator more than real people. - Robobrain

I don't use a calculator but my brain!

Nim

Exactly. In case you get mugged, you can tell the mugger that the calculator is a phone and you will dial 911 to call the police. When he snatches it from you and runs, take out your REAL phone and call the cops. Genius ^^. - TwilightKitsune

Harry Potter rules

twilight drools - Lunala

24 You own a lightsaber and use it on a regular basis

I only have those toy lightsabers - mayamanga

25 You read books every day for fun.

Harry Potter, Hunger Games, Divergent, Harry Potter, Harry Potter, Maze Runner, The 100, and Harry Potter. - PianoQueen

I love reading. My favorite book series is Percy Jackson, which got me obsessed with mythology( which I did love before I read the books but I got more obsessed) and that lead to astronomy and word orgins and a lot of other things - lbelle0527

Books are life!

I read Harry Potter, Doawk, and a load of books about science for fun. - Lunala

26 You love school more than anything

I hate how people think all smart people are school-loving nerds. I'm really smart, but I HATE school.

I hate school but I do love learning stuff on my own. - Rambles

I love school, but not the much I love my friends, family and teachers so it counts that I am not a nerd

Oh, I hate school! - lovefrombadlands

27 You know where to buy Alienware.

I do know where to by Alienware, whats the big deal guys! Nerds are humans not animals that people treat them like one. I'm not a nerd but I do know how a nerd feels if someone teases him by calling him a nerd. And some people are just so idiotic that they call smart people nerds.

I'm the smartest person in school, but not a nerd.

28 People who know you best call you 'Sheldon'.

Advanced Spelling test, highest grades, Math Olympiads and yet no one has ever bother to call me a name. I am also athletic and SUPER flexible. I'm pretty lucky.

My niece and a colleague affectionately refer to me thusly.

I'm the Sheldon of band. One of my best friends is the Sheldon of science. - PianoQueen

No, people call me Lia because that’s who I am. - lovefrombadlands

32 You hate football

Yes... I barely even know who won the Super Bowl last year (the reason I know is because I have a brother who insists on talking about sports in my ear 24/7 and that's the only sports thing I know) and I will only be at my family's Super Bowl party for the food. (I won't watch football; I'll bring out a book about classical music or Shakespeare. )

Hating football doesn't make me a nerd. And I probably hate football more than anyone.

I Hate football but that doesn't Mean I'm a Nerd

Idc about sports - Lunala

Marriage and then getting locked in my house with annoying kids for the rest of my life is the last thing I want - FireWasp2004

I know I'm not a nerd, cause I don't even need this stupid list to know, so there.

43 Nikola Tesla is your hero.

Yes... I want to be as smart as Tesla, and I know that Edison stole lots of Tesla's ideas. Tesla invented Alternating Current (the current we use today), but Edison gets ALL the credit. Tesla fans, unite to give Tesla the legacy he deserves.

I said stop reading if you don't like it!
