Revenge of the Nerds Rumble

9

Back then it was almost taboo to be friends with a nerd or a geek, or to be one. But lately, more and more people are trying to adopt their look, making it popular and "fashionable" ... guess the tables have turned, eh?

Nerds. Geeks. They used to be laughed at and teased mercilessly, but recently, it’s become strangely “fashionable” to be like one; and so people tried to copy their look. Black-rimmed glasses? Bowties? Buttoned-up shirts? Awkward slouch? Well, there’s more to a geek than these things, but right now we want to celebrate the effortless cool of the nerd/geek. Whip out some pictures honouring the inner geek in you or your friends!
