Nerds?

What makes a nerd a nerd? I've heard spouses call their RC loving companions nerds. Some spouses have even discouraged the hobby because of this aspect. Why? I thought that classification was gone once we graduated from high school but it continues to live on. Since this classification continues to live on later in life lets define it.

As I look at the classic "nerd," they had a passion for something. Wether it was math, Star Trek, Astronomy, Chess, or whatever, they loved it and surrounded their lives with it. If you think about it, even those that go crazy over football are nerds as well. Are they exempt because it is a sport? IMO... NO. Have you heard how football fans sound when they all get together to talk about a game? Pretty soon they loose much of their composure and begin laughing and dorking around just as the rest of us. Does your wife love beading, scrapbooking, cooking, etc...? Nerd, Nerd, and Nerd. We are all nerds if we have a passion for anything in this life. So love what you love and go crazy for it. Be nerdy for your family and addicted to the time you spend with them. Do nerdy things together. Become football nerds, unicycle nerds, RC nerds, halloween nerds... Whatever it may be...

So call me a nerd for loving unicycles, RC airplanes, football, church, family, chess, forensic science... I don't care. All you are telling me is that I enjoy life and have a passion for the things I discover and for the people I love and become associated with. Life is great isn't it? I hope you all aspire to the greatest of all titles: NERD!

Feel free to help this discussion by posting nerd pics of people you know, yourself or family. Or just let us know how you feel.

I've been riding my 24" a mile or two every day the past while and recently purchased a 20" trials uni, not a MUni of course, but would like to get to the point where I can ride mountain trails pretty soon. I'll PM you.

But yes... MUni is a goal of mine.

LOL at this thread. Nice work, Jeremy. I'm just glad the "Nerds Lounging" photo doesn't show my face. Somehow dodged a bullet on that one at least.

I think we've all been called a nerd at least once while into RC. If not, it will happen.

I have a pic that I have to find, and if I do, it will be sure to make an appearance. I miss yall to Jeremy. . Okay, if for NO OTHER reason than the fact that I actually read the captions on the pics, I am a nerd too.
