Great post on being a "nerd" at Marginal Revolution. In addition to pointing out that Dr. Seuss may have coined the term "nerd," Bryan Caplan lays claim to complete domination of nerd-dom:
I'm such a nerd that I worry that my sons will fail to embrace their nerd heritage. The best game show in history, Beat the Geeks, began by asking each contestant "What's the geekiest thing about you?" I still wish I could have been a contestant just to give my response:
"I am the Dungeon Master for an all-economists' Dungeons and Dragons game." Beat that, geeks!
