John Green

Saying, "I notice you're a nerd" is like saying, "Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid. Why is that?" In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even "lame" is kind of lame. Saying "You're lame" is like saying "You walk with a limp." Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done alright for himself.

"I notice you're a nerd" doesn't even sound like an insult, it sounds like a polite observation.

Hey now, nerds are just as capable of being thoughtless and vapid as everyone else on the planet.

If someone said, "Hey, I notice you're a nerd" to me, I would respond, "Hey, I notice that you're terrible at insults."
