Geeks vs. Nerds

I found this on Pinterest over the weekend, and it made me think about my mr. He is a geek. Not in the clever, science obsessed, socially inept way; but in the likes to play computer games and watch Marvel films way. I think it is a very common thing for a guy in his 20's to be a geek. It's not a new thing that's for sure.

Anyway, he's often trying to convince people that he's not a loser for playing computer games. (Video games seem much cooler to outsiders apparently.) That the fact that he plays Call of Duty on a computer game rather than on a console like an Xbox or Playstation means nothing. In fact it means he has more skills with his hands and the ability to do many things at once. And yet it makes you seem nerdy, without a smidgen of geek chic.  So, when I found this image, it made me smile, and think of my mr :).

It also reminded me of these fabulous illustrations that I saw featured on A Cup of Jo yonks ago.
