This is by far the calmest, most rational, and most thorough deconstruction of the terms Nerd, Geek, and Gamer I've ever seen. And it's accurate. Almost terrifyingly so.

Watch it and spread the news about it if you like. This needs to be something people know and understand because for all that I've been trying to say in my psychological ramblings, ActionPoints nailed it effortlessly.

Also, tired. Sleeping soon. <zonk>

I guess I did a third option after those years of ridicule and ostracization: I claimed the label and grew from it, and then didn't give a shit when it was commoditized. I just kind of sit back and mock people who claim to be nerds and geeks, but aren't.

I guess I'm just tired of labels in general. I'm a compilation of experiences and interests, and I no longer fall into the "nerd" definition, though I used to be there and am glad I was. I like to think I'm a well-rounded, intellectual person, and that I don't need to identify with a label to feel included in any part of society.
