Hey Partic and welcome :D
Hello everyone, another Swiss NF joining up. DFTBA! :)
Wunderbar! Welcome to the Schwiizer NF group. x)
i didn't really see myself as a nerd either.. but i guess to others who didn't like the things i liked considered me a nerd :P
in "niderdörfli" (I don't know how to spell it...) is a comic shop, I don't know exactly where, I just discovered it on the internet (I was going to go there after christmas as soon as I have the school break) and there is one in örlikon. but I don't know of any other shops from the top of my head...
Streber/Büffler is defined as a Swot, bookworm, nerd & geek in both negative & postive way. Though to use Nerd in the sense of comics for example, there's no german translation to my knowledge. @Damian Shaw In my Kanton I know of a comic shop in Aarau, but I've seen comic shops in Zürich, google it, man.
uh yes that's a difficult question.. the only places I know who would be considered nerdy are the Comix Shop in Basel also the park where people meet to play magic ;)
hi all! good to see there are nerdfighters in switzerland! does anyone know somewhere where there is unashamed nerdiness? I've found it very difficult to find so far, at least in Zurich
Well I think you can see both ways in a rather positive and a negative way... Those who called some one "Streber" would probably also call him nerd and mean it in the same way, but to me "nerd" has a more positive meaning than "Streber", "Streber" isn't actually negative, but because everyone considered it to be negative I kind of picked it up and I can't just see it in a very positive way... not the way I can see "nerd" in a positive way :) But I guess it's different for everybody
Hmm... isn't the word "Streber" - at least the way it was used "on" me - basically the same thing as calling someone a nerd? I mean, obviously the literal meaning is different, but colloquially, isn't it used to refer to people that have an unusual/odd interest in something (like math)? I knew quite a few guys that were seriously good at math, but the weren't considered "Streber", because they were not actually interested or enthusiastic about it - as opposed to me of course :). In my experience there has always been this same connotation of being an oddball that you can find with the use of the word "nerd".
