I think I've seen it before.
BTW what's the difference between geek and nerd?

Woooow, this is particularly telling. My two favorite bands are The Offspring and They Might Be Giants, and I often try to write lyrics as good as theirs. Now I see why I can't! Thanks for posting this. I feel much better. :D

I must say, I find it hard to believe that Rivers Cuomo's IQ is 200.

EDIT:

Haha, I often ponder the difference between a geek, a nerd, and a dork (no joke). I imagine a nerd to be one who's simply very smart, especially in the fields of math and science, and enjoy these things. A geek is more of a personality thing (see: dungeons and dragons, AV Club, band camp, etc). The stereotypical geek would probably looks something like this (http://www.12ghosts.com/support/awards/geeks.jpg). It's hard for me to explain my definitions, but I can see distinct examples of each in my mind. :D

I'd try to explain it like this:
A geek is something like a douchebag and a nerd is like a bookworm or computerfreak. Nerds are mostly intelligent, but freaks and geeks just boring and dumb. Amirite? I don't know for sure.

thank you! I thought geek is very smart and nerd is weird, but now I see it's not true :)

Cool I have a higher IQ than Dexter Holland. My IQ is 180. Me and Dexy are both geniuses.

I think this is not a list of actual IQs. This is more of a rating for who might be the most intelligent of the "intelligent geeks" out there.
I think Greg Graffin should be on there, though. Wasn't his IQ like 130? Or was it even 150?

I find the thought of ever having a science related discussion with Dexter to be extremely intimidating. Actually, probably a lot of intellectual discussions with him would be intimidating. And I'm pretty intelligent. =\

Seriously? Colin Meloy is decent and Rivers Cuomo is pretty damn good looking (though, that picture of him isn't great). I dig nerdy guys though.

like when he started talking about extraterrestrial life during that interview.

but i think it all depends on the subject u would be debating! i wish i could trade some opinions with him about my thesis, but i wouldnt want to talk about maths tho!

anyways, i dont believe that the IQ score is right or at least, accurate, or even, trustful.

I dont think it would be intimidating because if i talk to some one its about dexter or science(Bio, mostly) and trig. He is very smart though. He should write a book about science

Some self proclaimed geniuses here are pretty gullible.

Gullibility has nothing to do with IQ level. That being said, if you apply specific numbers to an article like that it makes it seem that there was some actual research done. I didn't care enough to read the entire article to see if there was or not.

Dexter is a genius, we all know that.

There is a difference between a nerd and a geek.

Nerds are people who are intelligent and love to learn. Nerds can be popular but they still call their graphing calculator their best friend and cringe inside when they see 12 items or less sign at the checkout line.

Geeks have no social skills. They may or may not be intelligent. They are the ones that play dungeons and dragons.

I think its safe to say that Dexter is not a geek, but maybe a bit of a kickass nerd.

Nobody has a geeky IQ 200.
