Geek vs Nerd vs Dork: That Is The Question

Ever wonder what distinguishes a geek from a nerd and from a dork? Well now is your chance to clear up some ambiguity. Militant Geek has created a clever and ingenious Geek vs. Nerd vs. Dork comparison chart for us to compare as we dare. They note that "Geeks are those that have technical aptitude, nerds are bright but socially awkward, and dorks are just inept excuses for protoplasm." Ok, to better understand this, they provide the example of a dream job. A geek's dream job would be working for Nasa or Google for example, whereas a nerd's dream job would be working for Marvel Comics and a dork's dream job would be an American Idol Archivist. Are you any of these? Leave your comments below!

I used to consider myself kinda dorky, but after this, I'm thinkin' I'm between a nerd and a geek, leaning more towards the geek...at least in my opinion, anyway! =)

The difference is also how strong the BO is. I've met some pretty funky dorks in my day. I'm a nerd who wishes I was a geek.
