Nerd quality of life

From one of my favorite nerd/geek web comics, Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal, a comic that surely describes the majority of visitors to this blog:

nerds

It may take longer than we could wish, but we win in the end!

    I wonder why this graph is thought to be true? I’m a nerd myself, but I just wonder. Is it because our hobbies will evolve, and will not be something we can’t physically do when we’re older?

      Good question, Jbrandao. I’ve been pondering it, and I think the difference is that geeks and nerds like to learn. Their hobbies can range from gaming to astronomy, but one thing they have in common is they love to learn new stuff about whatever interests them. They normally don’t stagnate. And that applies to anyone who keeps learning throughout their lives, including musicians [nod to xenatuba]. Learning leads to growth and change…which leads to quality of life.

    Guestimating the integrals of the functions looks like it is more of a tie than nerds winning, and only if a nerd gets to live 80 years. Hmm…

    But that would make the y-axis a function of the x-axis — they could not be orthogonal, then (I think).

    Oops, I should have “Reply”d.
