    I have bred and raised chickens and a variety of game birds, to include mallards, pheasants, chukar and quail, not to mention pigeons. I have assisted calving and branding many times.

    A nerd is someone who is passionate about or obsessed with scholarly fields, intellectual activities, and esoteric knowledge. The interests of a nerd could include, but are not limited to the following: mathematics, the sciences, linguistics, and technology.

    A geek is someone who is passionate about or obsessed with a specific subject or cultural following, which does not necessarily have to be intellectually-based. The interests of a geek are far more specific than the interests of a nerd, and could include interests that would otherwise be considered interests of a nerd. A geek could be interested in anything; it's the intensity and depth of their interest that "deems" them a geek. Such interests include, but are not limited to theater, culinary arts, music, movies, photography, computers, video games, and much more.

    A dork is someone who is socially inept and awkward. A dork does not have to be a nerd or geek to be considered a dork.

    By my definitions of the words "nerd" and "geek", the terms are only interchangeable when the interests involved are intellectual. For example, someone who is deeply interested in astronomy could be considered both a nerd and a geek; however, someone who is obsessed with such things as Star Wars could be considered a geek, but cannot be considered a nerd. When social ineptitude is present, then a nerd or geek can also be considered a dork.

    Now, I know that there are people out there that have their own definitions of the three words, in some cases even having the exact opposite definitions of "nerd" and "geek", but this is just how I define them.

    In a period of realitive political ennui, perhaps playing the dozens can serve to entertain us on PP.

    Appears I was correct. I wish you would leave my Mother out of this. She is a lady of class and I guess you just answered your question about pp.

    I miss alot of the intelligent posters right and left and tonight you remind me of why they left.

    Question is, why? At one time there was debate. Now mostly just carping.
    We are years from any new elections, but candidates are being touted already.

    PS I'm probably gonna be sorry in the morning that I posted this....but that is the blessing. Ya start a thread, ya can end a thread....JD
    For someone who works more than full time, it just isn't in the cards to spend the time necessary to have a discussion. So now I just look in now and then. I don't really even look in on the dog stuff much any more.

    Are you sure of who vs. whom? I'm not. Maybe we should consult Marvin, the ultimate arbiter of all grammar and spelling. JD

    I still think PP is a great read but two I miss are Hew and Yardley. Yardley was scary smart and always seemed to have evidence to back up his points. Our politics were polar opposite but you couldn't help but be impressed by the guy. Hew, very current, very smart, and really had a way with words. I remember when he told someone " You're like a Carl Rove wet dream". I about pi$$ed myself.
