+wimseyguy Posted March 6, 2004 Share Posted March 6, 2004 (edited) <snip>You could still be a nerd or a jerk. <snip> Since many of you profess to being a dork/geek nerd you probably already know that Dr. Seuss coined the word 'Nerd" Main Entry: nerd Pronunciation: 'n&rd Function: noun Etymology: perhaps from nerd, a creature in the children's book If I Ran the Zoo (1950) by Dr. Seuss (Theodor Geisel) Date: 1951 : an unstylish, unattractive, or socially inept person; especially : one slavishly devoted to intellectual or academic pursuits If this is true than how can it be uncool? I am not a nerd nor a dork. In fact I am a very lo-tech cacher although that is changing with the new 60C as my birthday present . My wife does think my obsession with this activity a bit odd, as do my parents, brother and sister. On the other hand my brother in law, nieces and nephews always looks forward to our time together because they think going on a treasure hunt with uncle wimseyguy is . In addition as the first member of my family to not beocme a lawyer in two generations they think most of my choices in life a bit odd. Now where did my drummer go? Can one be NORM outside the AS thread? Edited March 6, 2004 by wimseyguy Quote Link to comment
