Ask anyone who knows me well, and they'll tell you I'm a geek, and they know darn well to smile when they say that.

Given some of the recent GT threads, especially the Star Wars/Lord of the Rings related ones, I know you all have a bit of geek in you, as well.

As for me, I'm a computer support tech, I can quote Monty Python, The Simpsons, and The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy until you want to hang yourself, I'm a video game junkie, and I think puns are the highest form of comedy.
(Oh yes, ladies, he's single! )

So, here's your chance to fess up. What about you makes you a geek?

Star wars, LOTR, Warhammer, Forgotten realms are some.

And the Marvel series.

But mostly, anything that involves orcs and elves. And yes, I'm siding with the Orcs. Uruk Hai can make those elves cr4p their pants anyday.

I denied it for a very long time but in the last few weeks I have found out that, I too am a geek, but only a bit.

I am addicted to watching Japanese animation, I thought that was cool, but its not really. Im the only one of my friends studying abroad that has a games console in my room, and Ill obsess over being able to beat people at Street Fighter (why do I do that?!).

I dont go as far as to love LOTR and star wars. I think star wars and good movies and leave it at that. I dont like LOTR too much, and I have read the book, watched the movies and played the game. I dont have LAN parties! One of my geek friends came up to me the other day and said we should all bring our laptops over to his and play multi player Farscape and whatnot, now thats geeky!

I cant wait for Taison, WuXing, ChenZen and a few others to post, they just come across as supergeeks...

What about me ISN'T geeky. Comic books, Simpsons, sci-fi in general, enjoys reading, doesn't drink, smoke, or do drugs, not into team sports.

Oh, I forgot to add Warcraft and Starcraft.

And some japanese anime, but that's more like something I do when bored. And no, I hate the gundam series. They suck.

Oh My Days! I have been ODing (overdosing) on Gundam Wing these days and its, amazingly genius and the action is sublimely awesome (being overcome with geekiness ). Have you ever seen a whole Gundam series? I think youll find the deep storyline is deeper and more interesting than a mini-me with hairy feet trying to destroy a ring at the mountain it was made and hence saving the earth (middle) .

Watched Gundam Seed.

I mean, c'mon, if my robot or Mobile Suit runs out of ammo, it will go in and punch another mobile suit in the "head" which is supposedly the radar and camera?

I'll stick with the hairy mini-me with a lightsaber out to destroy the ring which was crafted by an evil sith lord.

A good anime? Naruto, Ninja's Scroll, Rurouni Kenshin, Samurai Deeper Kyo, Berserk. I have to re-iterate "Berserk". The best manga EVER.

That is pretty geeky. But I will double down on your geekiness by mentioning that my wife talked me into getting 2 cats as pets.

That flushing sound you hear? Yeah, that's my manhood.
