Periodic table for nerdy nerds

Robyn and I had a fairly long discussion last night over whether or not I’m a nerd. I think I’m a geek, but not a nerd. She thinks I’m a nerd. This post may well decide it. I give you the periodic table of video game characters. Which I think is clever. Nerd? Maybe.

Nathan runs St Eutychus. He loves Jesus. His wife. His daughter. His son. His other daughter. His dog. Coffee. And the Internet. He is the campus pastor at Creek Road South Bank, a graduate of Queensland Theological College (M. Div) and the Queensland University of Technology (B. Journ). He spent a significant portion of his pre-ministry-as-a-full-time-job life working in Public Relations, and now loves promoting Jesus in Brisbane and online. He can't believe how great it is that people pay him to talk and think about Jesus.

  1. I think I’ll have to vote for nerd. There’re a lot of very obscure characters there. But not complete socially exclded nerd.

    1. Thanks to those who voted geek.

      The best distinction I can think of between nerd and geek is that nerds wear button up shirts with pocket protectors – and geeks wear clever novelty shirts that people don’t get – like my Pi v square root of negative one “get real” v “be rational” shirt.

      Alternatively – the tech support guys in the IT Crowd are an archetypal nerd and geek.
