If wa take nerd to be deifined as a "smart, yet socially awkward" being, were 
there nerds in early human history. If the human race, advanced by being more 
intelligent, then where does the nerd fit in? Wouldn't someone like the 
stereotypical nerd, skinny, unathletic and socially awkward have died out early 
on? I mean, if the above is true, I shouldn't be here. (;
Thank you very much.
