Show us your geek cred - a thread

You’re spending this month learning about our Head Geeks in our February Monthly Mission, but we’d like to learn what makes you geek out. Tell us a story about a project, aspirational dream, or just something you fan girl/boy over that shows us what type of geek you are.

TL;DR: tell us you’re a geek without telling us you’re a geek #TheTellMeChallenge.

To earn a chance to win the Arc Star Floating Speaker, answer the prompt above*. To be a good THWACKster, comment on and/or give kudos to your fellow geeks’ contributions.

*Maximum one entry per person. Terms & Conditions apply.

  • When I watch the Big Bang Theory and get all the jokes and have to explain them to my wife, does that say something about me or my wife?

    She hates to watch a movie with me that has a computer aspect to it because I keep saying, "You know, that's not how it works." I do the same thing with car movies too though.

    To be fair I'm only half geek because I maintain my own muscle car that I've owned since 1980, including rebuilding the engine and turning nearly every bolt on the entire car personally. Bonus points: It will run after the EMP kills all the Teslas.
