I know that this has been bothering me and I just had to get it off my chest!

I'm not a geek!

I don't look like a geek, act like a geek, I don't even have a single pocket protector!


I know that it's hard to admit but if you need someone to talk to, feel free to write to me. I'm sorry but I just needed to say that!

If you feel the same way, or know someone like that, get them help right away!!!

That's OK! A lot of geeks probably wouldn't consider me a "true" geek, either: I never went higher than calculus in math; I never took physics; I have never learned to code a compiled language; I was a cheerleader; I prefer GUI's over the command line, etc.

But I like to hang out with geeks. So Geek Culture is a good place to be.

Neither am I.

I'm not the stereotypical geek that knows computers, number crunching, and RPG's.
The extent of what you can call my geekiness goes only as far as Star Trek, and history of modern conflict.
I do however like to sorround myself with intellect, hoping that it might rub in..

Don't be too upset, CP...you can learn to be a geek. When Pamela first came to live with me (about four years before we were married), she knew nothing about computers. I sat her down in front of mine and told her, "here's how you turn it on, here's how you dial in to the Internet, here's how you can send me E-mail, and oh yeah, here's where the Web browser is." She took to it quite quickly; soon, we were having conflicts over using the thing. I wound up buying her her own machine eventually, just so we wouldn't fight over mine. Now she wants a motherboard upgrade, more RAM, and a new monitor .

She's online right now, in fact, using MSN Messenger to talk with one of her friends in India or Turkey or someplace like that. Actually, she seems to be using MSN Messenger and ICQ at the same time. And she's looking at the QVC website while the 13" TV to the right of her workstation is tuned to QVC, showing various quilts. She's definitely a Net junkie.

So you see, geek skills can be learned! Don't lose hope!

I'm a cheerleader too!!!

And...? From my personal experience, I can assure you that being a cheerleader and being a geek are not mutually exclusive. For you see, I was the first male yell-leader in my high school (1987-88). And I am decidedly a geek.

Infiltrators a comin......? Jeeez.... we've been here a long time. I'm a JOCK. I've been for a long time, well most of my life but I'm also a complete and total geek/nerd whatever it is you decide to brand me. I don't believe in this branding, pinholing stereotyping crap but hey to each his own.

People would actually consider me a true geek if they looked at me closer. First of all, I carry at least 5 pens and/or pencils in my pants pockets. (I don't use pocket protectors because I don't have those kind of shirts)
I wear big baggy pants with two large side pockets in them. In one pocket, I carry my TI-83 plus silver edition graphing calculator and my trusty Caltech calculator. In the other pocket, I carry pocket sized editions of my favorite math books, such as Abstract Algebra, Number theory, and trigonometry. Plus, I carry a small notebook for any ideas that seem to hit me.
I don't wear glasses, but I used to. And my hair is always messy. Whenever I'm out at a resturant, I can either be see writing mathematics on napkins or doing particle physics theories in my little notebook. Other than that, you won't ever see me, with the exception of Barnes and Noble and Borders in the computer and/or math section, my arms piled with books and reading them all at once.
Othewise, my life, family and friends are on the internet!
The End...

I am a science geek, computer geek, and airplane geek. HOWEVER, I jog, eat healthy, do volunteer work, help coach softball, and sing in our church choir. I guess I am a HYBRID GEEK!

My wife, a teacher, is a total NON geek and almost completely non technical....HOWEVER...she started saying OH ESS TEN instead of OH ESS EX, wanted a photo printer for Christmas, and has embraced digital photography.

Maybe it DOES rub off!!!!!!!

That's easy, Pockets need protecting from nasty things like leaky ink pens! To find out more go see the History of the Pocket Protector

I have throughly convinced myself that it IS OS X (EX) and not ten. It just sounds so much more....hip, cool, whizzy, flashy, and plain awesome!

Okay, history of pens.

Before we had ball-point pens there were the old fountain pens (still available but costing a pretty penny and requiring some minor maintenance and learning a different style of writing.)

Fountain pens would require loading the pen with ink by dipping the pen into an ink-well and pulling the lever and ink being sucked into the pen's reservoir.

These pens often had a tendency to leak, with the ink staining whatever pocket it's in, so came the advent of the pocket protector.

For the most part, with today's pens, the pocket protector is largely unnecessary.

So, to answer the first question: Pocket protectors are an obsolete technology to protect the pocket from leaky fountain pens which are also an obsolete technology.

Both are available at office supply stores all over.

Wow baggy pants on a geek? Me too. I have some pants that I bought from the Army/Navy Surplus store that are just massive and I love them because I can keep two calculators on my body at all time. I can also hold 2 pencils (a .7 and a .9) 5-7 pens (blue, black, red, and green gels, and two regular blacks) and one or two highlighters. I am a guy and I carry a large black bag everywhere I go. It does not look like a purse but from what I have observed it has pretty much the same things as a woman carries in her purse. Fingernail clippers, pens, pencils, small calculater, small pads of paper, candy, floppy discs, 7 gaming CDs so I can install my favorite games wherever I go, dice, day planner, small package of toilet paper. Well It also functions as a book bag for school. It is about briefcase size so it looks masculen(sp) Well I have to run to class now so I will load up me "purse" and go now.

.7 & .9 pencils? Good lord! Why so big? .5 is definitely the way to go! Especially once I've written a bit and can turn the lead to write with the even smaller tip that develops. Ultra-fine point all the way, baby! Woo!

CutiePie, you must be more of geek than you know if your profile is acurate; a "butt doctor" isn't a "norm" profession... Then again, it's not really a geek profession either. A cheerleading butt doctor from Happy Smiles-Ville definatly warents a new label, any suggestions?

Just FYI, I kind of lied when I filled that out. I'm not a butt doctor, it just sounded funny. Doesn't it?
Bye the way, Fountain Pens aren't obsolete, their pretty!

And last, the whole classification thing: I have one. I know I'm not a geek, and I know that I'm not entirelly a prep so you know what I am?

Answer: A dancer.

ha!!!
Bet you didn't guess that one!
Anyone who is rhythimiclly gifted, extremely intelligent, and in some other way unique has the right to classify themselves. Since I dance I chose to be a dancer. i'd rather be a dancer than a flirt.

What about you?
If you are:
1. Intelligent
2. Rhythmiclly gifted
3. Unique in some way (Other than having the worlds biggest collection of pocket protectors)

Then you have the right to classify yourself.
Well wasn't that fun!
Sorry, I didn't mean to say that geeks are stupid if I conveyed to you at all, In fact, almost all my closest friends are "Geeks."
Or, if you will, "Nerds"


And I have one favor to ask of all of you:
Please Wish me luck.
I'll tell you what it was for on May 1st.

Thank you all!

I met a guy with one of those. He called it a his "man-purse". I prefer backpacks, but maybe that's because I carry so much crap that I'd destroy my shoulders if I used a pouch.

.5 is great. I'm looking for a graphite holder though... No one caries them anymore.

Cutie, you said that any one who has those qualities can classify themselves however they want? I'm a violinist (gotta have rythum), Inteligent (heck, I'm a geek... but that is only one hat I wear) and I am the personification of "eccentricity"... Ergo: I hereby classify myself as "Slagathore the Great Conquor of the Worlds." You, my friends can call my Slag for short, my enemies can call me "Oh, Mighty Majesty Great Conquor of the Worlds I Beg Your Forgivness" for short - and if they don't I'll feed them to the sandworms or the "R-O-U-S"es.

Geez, I'm probably not even a real geek either! I've been on a job all week and I forgot to find out the access number for where i was going (faboo La Plata, MD) before i left. And the entire time I was there, i only opened my laptop once (too tired to deal). I spent the week ina barren farm field in southern MD, in 90 degree, no clouds heat, looking for prehistoric campsites. It was frigging brutal, like summer came outta nowhere and kicked spring's ass. After dinner, collapsing was next,,,,,

I was carrying lots of pens, pencils, and sharpies the whole time, so maybe that offsets everything else a little......

I think I'm finally coming to terms with my inner geek!
I know that I'm not a total geek but I think that If I give it time, I will eventualy be able to count pie, by heart, to at least 31 digits or maybe even learn the history of fountain pens. Thanks for your advice Lifetime Trekker! And everyone!

Welcome to the club. I used to press so hard my teachers let me use #3 lead for everything except Scantron sheets. Then, somewhere along the way, I outgrew my need to grind the graphite into the paper and my handwriting almost looks normal now.
