So you think you are the perfect geek, but are you? There are chinks in your +5 elven chainmail. So this thread is to tell us how you aren't the geek you thought you were. My chinks...

1. I hate lego, or legos, or whatever the dorks call this kiddy toy obsession. I don't care if you made you house or Saurons tower in bricks. I hate it, and my kids hate it too. Thank god.

2. Cthulhu. I read all the books, and they were just OK. I never understood the draw to the madness. Meh.

3. Steam Punk. I admit, I went through a 10 minute interest in reading steam punk, but that dried away and now it's just annoying.

4. Furries, and worse my little pony, bronies? Wtf?(Yeah, this doesn't count, if you don't like furries you don't lose geek creds, you lose freak creds, weirdos)

5. Video games. I am such a gaming luddite. I think in the last 5 years I've played 2 games for a couple days worth. Civ IV and Stronghold. It's not that I dislike video games, just never seem to have tie to get into them.

1) When yet another Star Wars themed item comes out, I think to myself: "Fucking hell, not more Star Wars shit!"
2) I do not like burritos, nor am I fan of bacon, nor will I indulge in either to ironic effect.
3) I have zero interest in online gaming.

It's fun, it's healthy, it's good exercise. The kids will just love it. And we put a little sand inside to make the experience more pleasant.

I hate bacon with a passion.
I don't consider star wars the greatest thing since sliced bread.
I have never atended an SF or fantasy convention.
I canot name all the actors in Harry Potter and the floging a dead horse of derivitation (I , as you might be able to tell, also not a JK Rowling fan).
I do not own buffy in DVD (and have no intention of doing so) (I also find Alyson Hannigan at best 'only slightly cute if you like that sort of thing').
There may be more.

When green is all there is to be, it could make you wonder why. But why wonder? I'm green, and it'll do fine: it's beautiful, and I think it's what I want to be.

I have not read any Lovecraft, nor do I have any desire to.

I have never owned even a single Lego brick, although I did MC a Lego Robotics Tournament once.

I do not work in the computer software, hardware, underware or any otherwise ware industry. I don't know Linux from C+++++. I think Chrome belongs on cars, and have been in a few Operas over the years.

In spite of being an actor, I've never involved myself in roleplaying, and honestly find it a rather strange phenomena.

Am I permenantly expelled now?

I think Star Wars are some bad movies, that I nonetheless enjoy - just like any other B-movie I enjoy.

I think D&D 4.0 is fun, and a good RPG system. I think D&D 3.5 is craptastic.

I have yet to read a Lovecraft story to the end, only the first 3 or 4 sentences of a couple.


I must be abe to think of some more...

3. I hardly play boardgames. It's mostly video games for me.
4. I haven't read any geek classics besides the Hitchhikers Guide.
5. I've never seen Harry Potter or read the books.

I've never done cosplay. And I'm heading to GenCon with a bunch of people that are doing Steampunk cosplay.

Steampunk, while interesting, is not the greatest thing ever invented.

I don't, and never have had, acne.

I like wearing golf shirts with the breathable material. In fact this is what I'm going to wear to GenCon.

I use deodorant and shower everyday.

I like exercising.

Is it possible to hate a guy that loves Mexican food and Disc Golf? Plus I just ordered a Kubb set, so that's gotta count for something. If anything, feel free to hate me cause I'm beautiful.

Disc Golf definitely brings you back to the fold...A different, more cooler fold.

Easy, man. You are already walking a thin line with that bacon comment.

Star Wars -- Hokiest junk ever to hit the screen. My earliest memories are of watching the original in the theater.

Zombies - Oh god please stop with the zombies, they were cool for a couple movies and Thriller back in the day but it's been decades now give them damn zombies a rest.

The fantasy genre in general - Used to love it! Starting to wear on me though.

I'm pretty far behind on my pop culture - Sold my TV in 1998 for convenience reasons during a move never bothered to purchase another. I've never seen an episode of Seinfeld, Friends, Frasier, Lost, Survivor or other shows of its ilk, and countless other popular shows. I have seen one episode of Big Bang Theory and was irritated by it, though I thought it amusing that half the cast of Roseanne was on it.

1. I like Star Wars, but come on guys, you're taking it too far.
2. Ditto Star Trek.
3. I don't read. Well, I don't read books. Mostly just video game dialogue and BGG threads. I tried for a bit, but it just didn't float my boat.
4. I don't really collect anything that does not have actual utility. Mostly just board games. Not action figures, movie posters, sealed comic books, vinyl records, etc. Even my board game collection is pretty trim.

6. Racist.

Silly snark aside

1) I don't play role-playing games. I've never had interest in them. I played D&D once when I was 11 because of my brother's fondness for the game and I've never played again.
2) I have never watched Buffy, Dr. Who, Smallville, The Big Bang Theory, Battlestar Galactica, or Firefly (though I did see Serenity, on television).
3) I've never read the Dune, Lord of the Rings, or A Game of Thrones serieses. I've read none of Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy beyond the first book; as a matter of fact, I've read zero Douglas Adams beyond HHGTTG. I also do not believe I have read any Asimov beyond some short stories, I've read Stranger in a Strange Land and some of Heinlein's short work and no more, Fahrenheit 451 and probably no other Bradbury, Childhood's End and no other Arthur C. Clarke.
4) I own zero LEGO products.

When green is all there is to be, it could make you wonder why. But why wonder? I'm green, and it'll do fine: it's beautiful, and I think it's what I want to be.

I own none of the above (though I have had a wee on a number of occasions).
