I'm the person who sits in the farthest corner of the back row and doesn't want to make eye contact with anyone.  Whatever the word for that is.

"Disturbed loner."  Wink

I prefer to think of myself as "socially handicapped"   Twirling


I've been called a geek for numerous reasons.

2.I have been really into role-playing games...not those computer ones but the ones that require dice


I never played D&D when I was younger but I'm kind of into it now.  I also love Munchkins but that's sort of a spoof game; the serious RPG-ers would probably hassle me for it.
 Cheers


3.I actually enjoy elevator music and Lawrence Welk


Hahaha I used to love Lawrence Welk  (I watched  a lot of PBS as a child).  Bobby's teeth were disturbing.

LOL...I actually thought Bobby had a few more teeth than normal. As for role-playing,I haven't done it in years but really liked it. I played D&D,Star Wars,Champions,Middle Earth,Top Secret and some others.

You know, I tried to quantify what people think is cool a few years ago, at least in America. And you know what I decided? It was nothing more than sex and money. The "cool" people were just those who had money and were worried about who they would have sex with next. That's "cool" in American society.

Those people are incredibly boring individuals. Nothing of merit will ever arise for those gifted douchebags. They'll just keep f**king themselves. (Not that I'm saying that isn't great. Sign me on.)

I do find it amusing that the ascendancy of the geek has found it's way into polite society. I lived through the years when being smart was a stigma. Now, everybody is chomping at the bit to be the smart guy.

At the same time, I was the smart kid, and I wish somebody would have taught me basic shop class. Oh, I've got an imagination, but I'd rather know how to work a smart-saw.

I'm a geek for sure, but those jocks learned real-world skills I would kill for.

Does that whole geek thing really mean anything once you're out of high school?  Seems like everybody I know is a geek.  Of course working in an accounting office probably doesn't help matters much.  But some of those people in purchasing are actually geekier than we are  TeddyR

But yeah, I'm 48 and play video games every night, I'm going to build my own gaming PC, I've got 500+ DVD's - all of them bad - and I may know a thing or too about Star Trek, Star Wars, Babylon 5, Space 1999, UFO, etc.  But that stuff just makes me cool  TongueOut

Couldn't pass this thread up.

I go to a therapist (mental health type), and she is very focused on my life being outside the norm. She asked me if it bothers me to be outside the mainstream. I responded, "Do you find the postings of your 200 plus 'friends' on Facebook to be important? Do you read each and every one of them?" No, she told me. "Do you keep up with who won 'Dancing With The Stars' or 'American Idol'?" Well, no. "Do you really give a flip about Honey Boo-Boo and her family?" No, she said, but what does that have to do with anything?

That is "mainstream"! If I'm a geek for not being interested in that crap, then for the love of all creation, I AM A GEEK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

She thought about my comments and then admited, "I guess that makes me outside the mainstream as well. Wow."

Now, being non-social and avoiding contact with humanity, those are completely different issues...and I'm still working on those.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
