Default Re: Closet Geek?

Actually i've changed my mind...
I'm definitly not a geek...

I'm just unable to fit into any of the definitions that are out there.

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/geek
http://dictionary.reference.com/sear...omputer%20geek
http://www.darkwater.com/omni/geek.html


closest fit is number 3 here
http://www.m-w.com/cgi-bin/dictionar...ionary&va=geek


therefore... despite what DJ-Chris might think...
I'm definitly not a geek as I cannot be defined by the meaning of the word.

so I'm not a geek. I just know my stuff that's all. it's strange how the 'not-so-clever' elite has come up with some kind of label to discriminate against people.

when I first answered the question my assumed definition of geek was "someone who knew a lot about a specialist (usually technical) subject/s, (or at least thought they knew)"...

not the somewhat more popular definition it seems that I'm socially retarded just because I know more about computers that the guy sitting next to me...

Which makes absolutly no sence. Dumbasses with their "names" for people calling people retarted when they know more then they do about technology in general, is retarted.

"i see you know alot about cars...your retarted!" basically what it means in my view...

the geek i think about when some1 says geek is some1 with a high understanding of technology, most often computers, such as the PC

almost any other definition of geek that is not similar/relating to that i don't accept or consider it a bad term in my eyes...being highly knowlegabe on computers, not spelling

Yes when I get more infomation I will make a thread about it, it's going to be on a channel that most people here would not get.

And close to porn isnt TMI, just involves kissing, grinding, and limited clothing.
