Ten laws of geek


If you ever needed to confirm your geekhood, download the ten laws of

geek and see how many fit you. Taken from tapeworm's, 1337

h4x0r h4ndb00k, these popular geek laws can help even the most

socially-adept IT pro walk-the-walk and talk-the-talk of a hacker. For example:

Geek Law 2: Thou shalt have seen the movie “hackers” and knoweth it well. "I have

never met a geek in my life that hasn’t seen this movie," wrote tapeworm,

"It’s quite an exaggeration on real life, but is a classic none the less.

it is not uncommon to hear quotes from this movie in everyday geek

conversation."

How many of the laws fit you? What would you add to tapeworm's ten laws?
