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

Why? What about 17?

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.

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.

29 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.

34 You hate football

Sports are crap - iliekpiez

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
