Is it just me, or does that wizard's staff look a bit... Freudian?

Guys, I am not impressed. Most of you are not TRUE geeks.

Star Wars, Mighty Python, the Simpsons? That does not make you geeky at all—it only makes you well-versed in pop culture and cult classics. Most people I know, watch and can quote these movies, anime and more, and most of them play chess and drink tea—I would call only a few of them geeks.

REAL geeks, play with miniatures every Thursday night until 3am at some obscure gaming store in which one of them still works full time, even though he is 35. REAL geeks own those 12-sided dice and play real-life D&D and argue about who gets to be the wizard.

REAL geeks live in very messy rooms and have digital girlfriends...

Anyway, I've known some geeks in my life, so this list can go on and on.

You guys are just normal.

Geekiness isn't an absolute. It's falling somewhere on a continuum. Under the 'Bell curve' of geekiness are the techi-prats that can dissect Star Trek trivia, and haunt gaming rooms for pick up games of D&D.

Then, there is the 'martial arts geek'.


Hmmm...geek or nerd? What's the diff?

Besides, there's a fundamental difference between geeks and nerds, the latter being what Olga described.

Just as there is a difference between a dork and a dweeb, a goober and a spaz.
