I have always prided myself as being one of those “coolgirl” geeks. You know, the one that can hang with the boys and talk about Star Wars and stuff but that they all secretly want to date. Why would I want to spend endless hours talking about Star Trek? It’s part of the whole “geek-chic” phenomenon described in the geek quiz below. In my case, I convince dudes that I’m cool because I like Sci-fi and don’t care if they fart, and then use my earned “coolgirl” status as leverage on moving day when I can’t afford to hire movers. That’s just one example.
Alas, it appears I’ve gotten wrapped up in this “geek-chic” lifestyle to the point of delusion. I actually thought I could pass this geek test and go on to become the Kwisatz Haderach (whatever that is). As it turns out, I am no geek at all. According to this infographic, I am hardly even a keeg! Or in other words (Graham Chapman’s words to be exact), “We are no longer the knights who say Ni! We are now the knights who say ekki-ekki-ekki-pitang-zoom-boing!”
So I have decided to take the thick-framed glasses off (they don’t actually have a prescription anyway) and reside to my fortress of geek-free solitude. Live long and prosper fellow posers and hipsters. And let me know if you figure out how to pronounce gif. [via]
