Best Nerd Words

I’ve been addicted to playing Words with Friends on my Android phone lately which got me thinking about my favorite words. I wanted to share some of them with you, and I hoped you would share yours with me. I am going to give away a prize to the person who responds with the word I like best, so please write your favorites in the comments on Youtube!
