Geeks are a branch derived from the Nerds.

Urban Dictionary wrote:

NERD: A person who gains pleasure from amassing large quantities of knowledge about subjects often too detailed or complicated for most other people to be bothered with.

Often mistaken for Geeks, who aspire to become nerds, yet lack the intelligence, and end up giving nerds a bad name due to their poor social skills.

Non-nerds are often scared of nerds, due to their detailed knowledge, and therefore seemingly high levels of intelligence - and subsequently denegrate them as much as possible as often as possible.

Nerds exist covertly within the fabric of society, often choosing to 'nerd it up' in private or in the company of fellow nerds. It is for this reason they are feared the most - unlike geeks, who are easily identified, nerds can only be found out when casual conversation reaches a subject that they like nerding.

Geek: "I am a nerd"
Nerd: "Let's bash this nerd"

Nerd: "That'll teach you to go playing with my tesla coil"

That is the dilemma, but you won't know until you know a nerd, and a geek to compare.

how bout we just all get along and not give insulting names out to people? Society now a days are getting worse and worse and we can help make it better by getting along and not classing anyone in a special group or w/e. This might sound lame to some people but this is the truth.......

Don't forget there are several denominations of 'geeks.' And of course, there are nerds that call themselves 'geeks.' For example, those nerds self-proclaimed 'math geek,' or 'computer geek.'

geeks are fake otaku. nerds are those weirdos who read the dictionary and speak with an english accent even though they've never been near Britan.

Nerd is a person who is passionate about learning and is smart in all fields of accademics.
Geek is someone who is very smart only in one or two fields and has limited or no knoledge and no interest in others.

Nerds are the smart ones and geeks are the ones that are smarter than the average student but with bad social skills.

I think.
