    What's your definition of a geek; what's the general accepted definition of a geek, maybe I'm one too.

    Here's a start: an introverted geek stares at his shoes while he talks to you. An extroverted geek stares at your shoes while he talks to you.

    These days, it's fine to be a geek. It's the Greeks that need help.

    It happened like this Dr. Blue,

    I suddenly found myself being intrigued and excited about the Falcon 9 space rocket, OMG I said, that's the coolest thing evah and then I had an epiphany, maybe I was a closet Geek, I like the original Star Trek and squashing bubble wrap, I like watching Dexter's Laboratory and Bugs bunny, could it be that I am not an all conquering Viking hero Robbie Vince of Darkness but just a simple Geek? It was then I realised I needed help!

    more a kind of all conquering Viking hero type of Geek, you know, drinking mead out of skulls and splitting the pony tails of maidens hung on the wall with an axe.

    Well if you see yourself as a Geek that is how we will refer to you as.

    Is there some sort of medical procedure you can obtain to physically make you look like a Geek? If so, I'm sure we can make you into the first transGeek operation in world history, at tax payer expense, of course

    Think of the book sales Robbie!!! 😛

    1. Do you obsess over juvenile things such as plot points of a comic book? (10 points)
    2. Do you display cowardice? (7)

    These two are the only ones I got points for, but I only took half credit for #2. I try to avoid confrontations generally, but if they step over a line, I'll push the issue. Mainly I just want people to not threaten me, but when it comes time to fight, I can give better than I get. It wasn't always this way.

    And as for #1, I spent over an hour at the last Comic-Con here arguing with some dude about Ra's al Ghul. I guess maybe that's good enough to get me classified as a geek girl even without all the other qualifiers. At least I got dinner out of it. 🙂
