Geek Definition Insults Half of US

By strahab13 ·
You say "geeks tend to do things on their own and think they know better than anyone else". Well you know, that sounds like the most senior level of the Executive Branch of the U.S. Government. That's politics not technology of course. So, one point, I'd like to make is that your definition has little to do with Info Technology or technical expertise and knowledge. Rather it's a rather broad defintion that has more to do with personality, temperament, or attitude in any occupation or profession (the word "arrogant" comes to mind). You've really got a disciplinary issue that you need to address. On a lighter note, you also must realize, that based on election results the last 8 years, roughtly half of the American voting public seemed to prefer this sort of "strong" attitudinal characteristic in its national leadership. Go figure ... I'm still scratching my head over this one. In any case, a lot of people seem to admire this "cowboy" attitude, so watch your back out there :). Or, better yet, maybe you should try to persude this guy to leave the IT field and enter politics :).

Big Mistake Jellimonster.

by OH Smeg In reply to To add to your list!

I was pulling out the Plastic when guess who walked past. SWMBO liked it so much that she has insisted that she give it away as a present to a fiend of hers when it arrives and I'll need a lot of help if I order another one. :_|

Maybe buying something like this the day before her birthday wasn't such a great idea but as she had to explain tonight to a Door to Door Milk Man about the Backward Clock I thought that just Maybe I might get away with it. OH well next month when she has forgotten all about this I'll get the son to order one and give it to me as a present.

Getting new HW to play with

by The Scummy One In reply to Insults?

Yes, my computer gets 'upgraded' more often + I get to use multiple systems while everyone else gets just 1

I am able to (without help) rebuild my system WHENEVER I seem to decide it is best.

I get to obtain tools and use them without purchasing them on my own (usually)

I get to test out and make recommendations on different HW/SW items

Just some examples
