Geek Pride Day
Get your geek on! On May 25, let your geek flags fly! All things geeky are commemorated on Geek Pride Day. It is for those people who like sci-fi, fantasy, board games, computer games, comic books, cosplay, anime, steampunk, and zombies, among other things.
Geeks are a diverse bunch with one common trait, passion. Especially for electronics and those things that are outside of mainstream interests, and that can make them seem eccentric.
Geeks are intelligent, at least if intelligence measures intelligence is collected. Geeks, who gather a lot of details, have a lot of details.
Geeks invent things, too. Thomas Edison, Steve Wozniak, and Benjamin Franklin are among the famous geeks to have appeared on television. Each one was innovative, eccentric, and passionate about topics that were outside of their normal culture.
Many tech publications and websites promote the bill of rights for geeks. The following are a few of the geek rights: Some of the geek rights include:
- You have the right to be more geeky, but you have the right to be more geeky
- staying at home
- Be a virgin, not have a partner and be a virgin, and not have a partner
- I don't like football or sports, so I don't like football or sports
- The right to geek association is reserved to the right to geek association
- You may have few acquaintances (or none) if you have few (or none) (or none)
- All the friend's geeks who adore each other will have all the friend's geeks who adore each other
- Not to go to fashion, not to go to fashion
- To excess and myopia, go to overweight and myopia
- world domination
