    My Geek Manifesto

    Hello my pretties,    Yes, I'm a geek. Is there a 12-step program for this? if there is, I will avoid it at great personal cost because being a geek is what I like. I liked it even before it became a cool counter-cultural movement. You know, it takes guts to be a geek in an...

    Makes Me Laugh

    Batman Vs. Superman

    The latest buzz is that Justin Timberlake wants to play the Riddler. Everybody's talking about whether Justin Timberlake can be the Riddler. I'm sorry, y'all lost me at Ben Affleck is Batman. He. Is. Not. Batman.

    Engineers Codes- Decoded:

    Definition of geek: "A person who relates academic subjects to the real world outside of academic studies" Engineering changed me. I am not a geek always but, when I have my college classmates around me-- we just talk everything in technical terms. We call bad jokes...

    I'm Coming Out Of The Closet Now.

    I'm a geek, - a closet geek. I've always tried to hide the fact that I'm a geek because the girls I was interested in didn't seem to fancy geeky guys. I was always interested in girls who looked like punk rockers,- girls who were into Iggy Pop, Ramones etc, - and who wore ripped...

    Yes And Proud To Be!

    Of course being a geek covers a lot of ground. You can be a geek in a sport, profession, school, even church. I take the view that a geek really is anyone who takes what they are doing seriously and devotes themselves to its pursuit to the exclusion in some cases of all else...

    I Used to Be Ashamed of My Geekiness

    But now I embrace the Nerd culture. I'm proud of loving science fiction, of playing video games, of loving to read, of doing well in school, and most of all, being intelligent.

    Yes, I'm a geek and I assume it totally!

    I'm part of many fandoms such as the whovians, the sherlockians, the potterheads. I like misfits (and I have channel 4 to have cancelled it). I like being different, being part of something that normal people don't understand. I like being high by the smell of books instead...

    The Hero'S List

    Sure, heroes always win in the end, but there are a lot of things they could do to save themselves from much of the pain and agony they endure. Plus, minor characters also do a lot of stupid things to get themselves killed. So, if I am ever a hero or minor good guy, here's what I...

    I'm a geek that had the misfortune of growing

    up in a Canadian rural area where being a geek was something people looked on down on you for. People don't understand that I don't really care for most sports, hunting, cars, dancing, concerts or most other common forms of "active" entertainment. I love to read, play table top...

    It's A Cultural Thing

    Amazingly enough, on the other side of the world, geeks are held up as role models. Parents are proud when their kids are nerds and geeks because it ensures success in their future.  For 11 year old boys, Warren Buffet is a role model, so is Bill Gates. It is quite a...

    I'm a bit of a geek. It's not something I'd always have described myself as, but maybe I should have. I don't fit in with any other social group that well and since I do have quite a few geeky interests (with more to come hopefully), I think its about time I joined the Geek...

    Do You Ever Want To Get Laid?

    I think me being a geek entirely depends on the kind of person who thinks that I am one. I think I'm a geek, but in a way that is endearing and sweet. Peers thinking I'm a geek, just don't know me that well and it's more of an insult. Friends thinking I'm a geek, just means they...

    Absolutely nothing wrong with it!

    Embrace it! When people try to make me fun of me or tell me , 'you're such a geek/nerd', I just give them a huge smile and proudly tell them, 'yes, I am!' It usually throws them off and they don't have a response. I just walk away smiling or continue my conversation.
