Who remembers when being a "nerd" was a BAD thing? Lately, it seems that being a nerd is actually acceptable trait to have! But what if you want to hang with more like-minded nerds? Where is, in America, the nerdiest place in the nation?

The answer, avoid the east, aim West.A website recently ranked every state in America by the level of its NERDINESS...and 8 of the top 10 are in the West.

How did they come up with these findings? Essentially they trolled Facebook in search of peoples nerdy interests like "Star Trek", Dungeons and Dragons, comics and "Doctor Who"
