Seriously, if you're not at least a little nerdy, you're majorly missing out. You can be a football player and have a nerdy streak, or be a musician and have a nerdy streak, or be a chef or salesman or journalist or whatever else you want and have a nerdy streak. You can be nerdy and still be well-rounded.
Not having a nerdy streak, however, means that you can't calculate the rise and descent of a football, laugh at existentialism jokes, or manipulate numbers in hexadecimal and binary. And it's good to try to turn things into algorithms from time to time, instead of always flying by the seat of your pants.
Just thought I'd say.
