The issue isn't over whether the word is correct, the issue is over whether or not this was trying to reference Naughty by Nature. ;)

Ugh. I buy all of the science nerd t shirts and I've said it before, I'll say it again, I'M SICK OF GRAY! Sick of it. We nerds wear some colors. This would have been nice in a blue. For crying out loud! I'm going to sleep on it and see if I can still resist it in the morning, I don't think I can stand another gray shirt, so I feel like I'm going to pass on this one.

Especially because I think "nerdy" would have been even better, it's too many degrees removed from "naughty" as it is now.

Bah!

"Nerdy By Nature" is apparently a rap group from the University of Oregon who makes terrible, controversial videos about a woman's right to choose.

Nerdish is a word, not particularly british.

In this case, it's a reference to a song by german hip hop group Fettes Brot, "Nordisch by Nature" (Northern by Nature). It's their most popular song, in fact, and what launched their career in the 90s. Fettes Brot is synonymous with hip hop in germany (though they're not really as "hip" as they used to be), and the song Nordisch by Nature is even more ubiquitous than they are.

That said, Nordisch by Nature is a fairly nonsensical song and the title is actually an intentional phonetic transliteration of "Naughty by Nature."

As ruler of the entire Nerd Nation (at least, in my own mind), I APPROVE THIS T-SHIRT!

Also, I'd encourage female Wooters to buy this shirt as nerdy = sexy (for women).

For all you squares that think that this write up is a parody of Naughty By Nature, I point you to "Gangsta Gangsta" by N.W.A.

You're welcome.

There are fine distinctions between Nerd, Geek, and Dork but I believe jott has hit Nerd right on the head.

I can't decide what I am more--naughty or nerdish. And if I wear this shirt, it might imply that I am only nerdish and not naughty. So while I appreciate this parody, I think I better hold off.

It is a cute shirt though. Kudos, jott.

I figured "Nerdish" was like Nerd lite

Really liked Star Trek Voyager but never watched the original.

Enjoyed Star Wars but hasn't read any of the novels.

Has 1 or 2 action figures... but they're out of the packaging.

That what I figured "nerdish" meant.

I agree with the Nerdy by Nature. I don't know what the thought process was on that. The band isn't Naughtyish by Nature.

Beryllium Astatine, if formed, would have an empirical formula of BeAs2 (2 being the subscript), and would form an ionic solid (i.e. a salt, such as NaCl). However, due to Astatine's highly reactive nature, the compound will most likely never form in nature, and synthesis in a lab would last for only several hours.

Aw man, i totally got the Fettes Brot reference instantly, and was hoping I'd be able to be the first to post about it...

perhaps the fact that I got it instantly shows what a nerd I am. All listening to German rap for fun.

also, woooo darmstadt!

Shirts not for me.... but obligatory bad nerd joke....

One hydrogen atom say to another, "I think I lost my electron!"
The other atom says, "Are you sure?"
The first one says, "Yes, I'm positive!"

Does this shirt seem appropriate to work out in? I think it would be quite humorous to wear when I work out.
