Geek's Are Better, Because They Can Be Good Looking.
Where As Nerds Don't Even Come Close.

Ex:
Nerd = Napoleon Dynamite
Geek = Anyone Who's Smart

i've always known it as this.

the difference is that a nerd is someone who is all into school, is very smart, and makes good grades. they are usually the ones who hang out with other nerds, and some are afraid to talk to the more popular kids. they usually lack any sense of fashion and are goody goods.

a geek is someone who is into computers or video games. they usually like to say "pwn" and "noob" in real life and hang around other geeks. not all of them are smart and i've seen plenty of failing geeks... their sense of fashion is even worse than the nerds and also are usually goody goods.

it's better to be a nerd since in the end you know you're smarter than everyone else. you will probably end up making more money than most other people anyway. which in the end means more women and cars

nerd

Nerd is a term often bearing a derogatory connotation or stereotype, that refers to a person who passionately pursues intellectual activities, esoteric knowledge, or other obscure interests that are age inappropriate rather than engaging in more social or popular activities. Therefore, a nerd is often excluded from physical activity and considered a loner by peers.

geek

The word geek is a slang term, noting individuals as "a peculiar or otherwise odd person, especially one who is perceived to be overly obsessed with one or more things including those of intellectuality, electronics, gaming, etc."[1] Formerly, the term referred to a carnival performer often billed as a wild man whose act usually includes biting the head off a live chicken, bat, snake or bugs. The 1976 edition of the American Heritage Dictionary included only the definition regarding geek shows.

This word comes from English dialect geek, geck: fool, freak; from Low German geck, from Middle Low German. The root geck still survives in Dutch gek: crazy, and in the Alsatian word Gickeleshut: geek's hat, used in carnivals[2].
