That's pretty much the gist of it. If anyone is bored, send me an im, my sn is stormn6676 (yes it's suppose to represent "storm'n norman", the 6676 is "norm" on the phone, yeah i'm a geek)

I think I'll follow your lead Norm with introductions, but I don't have the guts for my own thread so I'll tag on the end of yours :-)

18/M/UK, the names Nick, I've sort of been lurking here for some time now but only just got an account and posted. So hi.

We're here. Believe me. I wore a Legend of Zelda shirt to school today (with the original brown haired Link!) And most of the guys just sort of looked at me and laughed. I am surrounded by pop-culture morons! Except for one. *crush*.
P.S. "geek" is a very vague term, i.e. I am more of a bookworm (and graphic novels!)than a computer geek.

Graphic novels? Do you take european ones too? If so, I have a few I would suggest. I am myself mainly into european-style and manga. (Though my collection is still relatively small.)

Uh... And hello Norm and Stibbons!

Ha! Latin! Yay! anyways...
I would be happy to take suggestions on graphic novels to read. I love Neil Gaiman stuff (that's European is suppose. He is British.) And I read things like Lucifer, London, and most of the decent g.n.'s put out by Vertigo (by DC).

not a graphic novel but I just read Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett and I highly recommend it to anyone in need of some light and funny reading. It's sort of like the apocalypse monty python style. [Big Grin]

As Zim'et says, we're out here. I promise. [Smile]

On the whole where-to-find-geek-girls/guys thing, though, I'm just as lost as everyone else seems to be. My first day of university I thought, finally! I'll find them here! but alas, the first conversation I overheard was, "Whoa dude, I was like, so totally wasted last night, I totally was hitting on this like, completely ugly chick.. like, gross, man!" [Frown]

And then I estranged a large group of what I strongly suspect were geek guys by putting on some lip gloss as I walked past the physics lounge. [shake head] They all looked up hopefully, then shook their heads in disgust. GAH! That'll learn me gooder.

Good Omen! Yeah! Sooooo funny!

Ok, now for suggestions:

Sasmira, by Vicomte. It is fantastic genre, time travelling, gorgeous graphism. 1 volume as of now, the next one is overdue, but still no date for it.

Blacksad, by Canales and Guarnido. Detective stories set in the '30s, but with 'animalized' characters. The graphism is so good I even bought the artbook. 2 volumes out, continuing.
Morea, by Arleston and Labrosse. It's soft science fiction, with many light moments, and really nice futuristic architecture. And each time I watch their depiction of the future of USA, and can't but think of what GWB is doing, and I go 'OMG, he is heading straight for that'! 2 volumes, more to come.

All are in French, though, but the two former are definitely worth having, if only to enjoy the art.

Oh, and I call 'european style' graphic novels about the size of letter paper and with a hard cover.

Of I go researching the titles you propose, Zim'et!

yeah, you'd best learn to change your habits to appeal to a clique with idiotic dating standards. "uh oh, lip gloss! that's a sure indicator of below-average intelligence and different taste in popular culture than i! scoff!"

i mean...errr...yes, norm, we exist, but some of us bite. [Roll Eyes]

Exactly. And anyway, everybody knows you can ALWAYS judge a book by it's cover. [Wink] Ah, well.

As for the "where-to-find-geek-girls/guys thing" (thanks for the phrase Beth)... I think we're walking right passed each other and not seeing who is there. I mean... it has to be. The geeks are out there, or we wouldn't have this forum or websites like this one.

I'm an available and reasonably attractive geekette in a major city, work as an instructor and writer in the IT department of a grad school, practically breathe Classic Star Wars, I'm funny, smart, yadda yadda yadda... I should have the geeks beating a path to my door. Do I? Nope. Do I advertise my geekiness and have I actively looked for like minded individuals of the opposite sex? Yup.

I think we should go for the phosphorous implants as was suggested in another thread (or it was this one... sorry... trying to catch up).

I met a pretty cool guy at a Latin convention last year. Turns out he wasn't quite as smart as I had hoped he would be though. *pout*
Stereo: I'll check out those titles you suggested. Thanks!

Phosphorous implants? That sounds kinda flammable. Never mind the toxicity issues...

How about we just tag all geeks with GFP so we glow green under UV light? We could fuse it to whatever genes are responsible for geekiness. Unfortuantely, those genes haven't been found (and may be very much subject to the nature vs. nurture debate). It would also require manipulation of the human germline, which raises some bioethical concerns. How about this: look right underneath your nose. The geek of your dreams is probably right in front of you.

I did look right under my nose. I met someone here when I was a student. He was the proverbial "one who got away." I wasn't single, he was... He wasn't single, I was... the same old drill. Several years ago when this was going on, one of our friends said she often had to remind herself we weren't a couple, and when I told a professor I was divorcing, her immediate comment was that it was good because I belonged with this other person. But he's one of my closest friends and I will treasure him always.

So I keep looking right where you suggest, and begin to wonder if rhinoplasty wouldn't be a bad idea.
