So go ahead, Put us down
One of these days we'll turn it around
Won't be long, Mark my Words
Time has come for Revenge of the Nerds!!

Hang on a minute, BCR. Let's not confuse geeks with nerds. This venn diagram should help sort things out: http://www.greatwhitesnark.com/2010/03/25/difference-between-nerd-dork-and-geek-explained-in-a-venn-diagram/ Or perhaps this one is more appropriate: http://xkcd.com/747/

September '75 I was 47
Inches high
My mom said by Christmas I would have
A badass mother G.I. Joe
For your little minds to blow
I still got beat up after class

CHORUS
Now I'm big and important
One angry dwarf
And two hundred solemn faces
Are you
If you really want to see me
Check the papers and the T.V.
Look who's telling who what to do
Kiss my ass goodbye

Don't give me that bullshit
You know who I am
I'm your nightmare little man
Vic you stole my lunch money
Made me cry
Jane remember second grade
Said you couldn't stand my face
Rather than kiss me you said
You'd rather die

CHORUS

You'll be sorry one day
Yes you will, yes you will
You shouldn't push me around
Cause I will, yes I will
You will be sorry when I'm big
Yes you will, yes you will
You will be sorry

"I'll continue to argue that the commuting patterns of those who choose not to make Durham their home are a source of much of the "benign neglect" that makes Durham a great place to live for those of us who choose to live here."

Yes, but given the state continues to shift the burden of education cost onto counties, it sure would help DPS and county residents if these folks made Durham their home, thus boosting the test scores of local schools AND adding to the tax base.

I wish more of the Geeks who filter out of RTP everyday into other counties would make Durham home. We could properly handle the growth and benefit from more geeks per square mile in Durham. :)

Great news! I'm a native, so I don't hyphenate. Its just Durham for me! One thought - when informing the public, acronyms should be spelled out. No one outside of that field would know what you're talking about. NSF, MSA, CMSA can mean different things to different people and leave them uninformed. Great article though! May the Geeks rock on! :)

The flaw in your argument Tina is that we would have to enlarge our schools to hold the extra students. We would have more development/ environmental issues. I'd rather have the occasional child-free geek who loves slightly urban environments.

In other words, low impact individuals...by the time they have kids hopefully we can afford them. In other words, BCR is on to something.

I don't think we should get into local payroll taxes either. That is a race to the bottom when cities begin competing for tax dollars.

(Of course, plenty of the jobs in question in RTP and elsewhere have commuter residents from Wake and elsewhere driving in, though I'll continue to argue that the commuting patterns of those who choose not to make Durham their home are a source of much of the "benign neglect" that makes Durham a great place to live for those of us who choose to live here.)

The first officers were Duncan F. Curry, president, William R. Wheaton, vice-president, and William H. Tucker, secretary-treasurer.It is likely that Cartwright picked some of his twenty rules based upon his previous experience in town ball play in Manhattan. The original rules of play at the vacant lot in Manhattan were not documented so it cannot be said which rules were Cartwright's own invention.

Before you were born, your parents weren't as boring as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you are. So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parents' generation, try "delousing" the closet in your own room.
