Default Geek trap

After Pitlab got beaten up for being a geek in the Spiderman thread. I started thinking there's probably an above average number of geeks here, whether we acknowledge it or not. My theory is that even though you know I'm trolling your "geek" opinion will override and you'll have to say something.

Man i don't know anything about any of that really.
Programming sucks and I suck at both C++ and Java.
I've never played 360 or PS3, no one owns one.
No idea what Morrowmind is.
Forza sucked just because of the ending. Anyone watch The Setup yet?
Vanguard? (Man that sounds a slightly important should i know something?)
Emeril because Rachel Ray's voice makes me want to puke but Emeril is a *****. BAM bitches.
Campy? (Another i've never heard of)
ICP just because i've never listend to Primus.
Newton because he likes apples and and I hate calculus.
Lee
Transformers were created by man so they must be ok, otherwise my parents wouldn't have let me watch them. I have the best domain and email address for when the Real Life Transformers movie comes out.
Spitfire (skater equipment or ignition?)
Fender
Nurture
Maul
Betty boop?
Spiderwagon

I've heard that as well. Spend a spring break without your computer, withdrawals are a bitch. Though you can work all kinds of things out. "Honey I'll lay off the computer for a week if you...." Have fun with that.

My dad spent a large portion of my childhood telling me video games are a waste of time. I spent 7 years working for Boeing programming flight sims for the USAF. Think my dad was right.

Cj, a Spitfire was the dominant British Fighter aircraft of WWII. The P51 Mustang was the main US fighter. I'm a P-47/P-38 guy myself... lots more soul w/those 2 planes.

I'll ad my own little version of this thread:
Spit > Lube

Ok, I'm a big GT4 fan....never played Forza yet so I can't say which is better, but this is a decision maker whether or not I get the new PS3 or go for the 360. Sorry to hijack but any input on those who have played both?

Campy > Dura Ace was a little obscure. They're high end components on road bikes. I love mountain biking but I train on a road bike sometimes. Can't stand roadies, though. Arrogant Lance wanna-be ******.

Lee > Grant If you were raised in the US and you don't know this, read a ****'n book.

C++ > Java Yes
360 > PS3 Not too sure really...I still like the 3
Morrowind > Oblivion Both are boring as all hell to watch but Oblivion was disappointing
Forza > GT4 YES 100 times over
Vanguard > Citistreet yep
Emeril > Rachel Ray BAM....but cooking shows are lame
Campy > Dura Ace def
Primus > ICP ICP blows
Newton > Leibniz sure
Lee > Grant hah
Robotech > Transformers **** no holmes. Robotech was a retarded child of entirely too many Macross series blended into one downs syndrome crack baby.
Spitfire > P51 yay guns
Gibson > Fender Black on Black SG BEST EVAR
Nature > Nurture ...probably jury is still out
Maul > Vader His lack of dialogue was probably his only saving grace, got only a marginally better death than Boba Fett did.
Veronica > Betty Yeah when I was 5, but yes she has the money and teh hottness
Batmobile > KITT but you miss out on all the Michael

There's a difference between knowing geek-like things and then displaying, without shame, your incredible geek knowledge. It's the old "too much information" syndrome. We don't care what your nose bleeds are caused by, who your favorite Star Trek captain is or which version of infinitely-rereleased/remastered Lucas/Speilberg movies are best. Keep **** nobody cares about to yourself and people won't call you a geek.
