    Mormon Book Worm,

    Disney, Country music and the piano guys aren't really nerdy things to follow. In fact, country and nerdy are more at odds than they are similar. Being a fan and a nerd are very different. And nerds tend to take very seriously what it actually means to be a nerd.

    Video Games

    There's a start...

    Seems to be some confusion in this article as geek and nerd terms are not interchangeable. To simplify one can think of nerds as intellectual geeks.

    I am embarrassed for some of the geeks I see. But to each his own, as long as they enjoy themselves and dont harm anyone else. Long live the Geeks!

    As a woman who has a family portrait of all my kids in Dr. Who t-shirts pretending to be weeping angels, I couldn't be prouder to be a Utahn!

    (Then again, I'm the kind of mom that made Star Trek TNG costumes for all of my kids for Halloween, and we also have boxes full of Star Wars, LOTR, and Harry Potter costumes. When my daughter called to tell me she was going to ComicCon, the question wasn't, "Will she dress up?" but "Which costume will she wear?")

    Utah's awesome!
