Geeks v. Hipsters v. Nerds

I guess being called a hipster has become on par with calling someone a racist now.  Not really.  I’m just exercising my right to hyperbole here.  But hipsters are jagweeds, I guess.  While I don’t consider myself a hipster (guys, I really don’t understand why everyone loves Bon Iver so much – total snoozefest), I guess I have some of the qualities.  I mean, probably only a hipster would use the word jagweed.  Amirite?  According to this chart, I think I border more on geek, though.  Phew?  I guess?  (I’m doing A LOT of guessing here, I guess).  One thing I know for sure (according to the chart on the bottom of this post) is that I’m not a nerd.  I consider it lucky that I was able to laugh at Pi Day without silently wondering why everyone is celebrating pies.

    That is VERY interesting. Must share with my former Dreamweaver/Flash prof, who fancies himself a hipster. From the descriptions, you’re definitely a geek — especially considering the reference to _Anchorman_ on the Geeks vs. Nerds chart. (There is, however, a lot of overlapping/conflict in movie choices between Geeks vs. Hipsters and Geeks vs. Nerds.)

    Dare I say you put the “chic” in “geek chic”? Nah, I’m feeling snarky today. :-P

      When they mentioned Anchorman, I knew where I belonged. LOL. Oh, and I’ll take chic geek any day!!!

    Kinda wanna indetify as “all of the above”, but, however, especially seeing as I’m longwindedly adding flavor text and a possibly nonexistent word, I’m probably a geek if only one. Secondly a nerd (Yay school!), and probably least of all, a hipster, if not just for the fact I call myself a hipster (and tattoos are a big NO).
