There should also be a nerd pride day. Nerds suffer far more discrimination and derision than geeks.

Because people make fun of us for the way we smell, and our thick glasses and big ears.

Geeks, on the other hand, have enough carisma that they are almost considered to be trendy these days.

If you can't work a pc and smartphone then you are likely to be ridiculed!
