The online dictionary offers this definition of "geek": "A person who is single-minded or accomplished in scientific or technical pursuits but is felt to be socially inept."
Well, I beg to differ!
OK, yeah, we may indeed be accomplished scientifically or technically, and sure, some of our fanatic interests may seem single-minded, AND, ok, maybe, sometimes, some of our social skills don't always lead us to the voted "Most Popular," (LOL)...
....my experiences have been that geeks can be very friendly, fun and good people to know, largely because:
1) Geeks are highly intelligent, and thus capable of fascinating conversations, and creative ways of having fun;
2) Geeks tend to be very passionate people. Their love for their favorite show/subject/thing often stems from that inner passion;.
3) While Geeks do often have a favorite thing they're fanatical about, they usually also have a wide variety of other interests, and are usually very OPEN-minded!
4) In our current technology-rich, multimedia-saturated world, Geeks rule!
If you like -- and I mean REALLY like -- any of this stuff, you may be a geek....
