0067: "Nerd Girls"

Mouse-over Caption: Nothing personal, high schoolers.

Yes, I realize this is a very old comic, but I think it needs a discussion thread. First of all, I don't quite what their excuse for social ineptness is. I guess it would be "constant fawning," but I still don't quite understand how it's an excuse for social-ineptness... And in my memory, nerd girls are too elusive, shy and self conscious to ever let male nerds find them, much less fawn over them, even if we socially-inept males were outgoing enough and brave enough to make a first move.

I'm sure there are quite a few people who had "GOoMHR" moments who can explain this comic to those of us who are slightly to socially inept to get it otherwise.

EDIT: AUGH! BBcode fail! Could someone correct it for me? ... this is what I did: [ url=http://www.xkcd.com/67][ img]http://imgs.xkcd.com/comics/nerd_girls.png[/img ][/url ] (with spaces at the biginning and end.

EDIT2: Fixed. I have no idea what I did wrong.

First.

I saw there were no comments.

It had to be done.

I find this comic amusing and I aggree with the concept.

This comic is pretty much the very definition of White Knighting.

If, this clip is real, then, this girl wins my favorite Nerd Girl.

It is a second Violin solo. That is so cool. On a beach!

I think it is real. The sound is very good for windy conditions.

Second violin. That is the the top of the Nerd ladder. Right?

It looks like the waves are standing waves. They mostly don't go up and down or forward, they just stand there.

I can't tell. Your picture makes a case for her being so far from the shore that you don't see waves at all, and the apparent standing waves are just distant features that look kind of wave-like and that flutter a bit in the video like they're made of water.

I guess it doesn't really matter.

Is it possible by using the Magic of the Internet to find out who the Nerd Girl is?
I have not one clue how that would be done.
