First off, thanks to Julia, Alyssa, Lauryn, Lauryn’s mom, ChrisClark, and everyone else who hung out with GeekUSA on Super Tuesday. There was many a witty and insightful comment that was, unfortunately, eaten by the interwebs as I consolidated all my posts into one. For the record, Lauryn said something really funny that I can’t remember and Julia schooled me on Super-delegates.
Secondly, the big Onion article everyone’s passing around these days is called The Knights Who Say “Nerd”: Twenty Pop Culture Obsessions Even Geekier Than Monty Python. As I’ve stated previously on these pages, there’s a slight but significant difference between geeks and nerds. If you’re a nerd, you’ll read the article and start indignantly composing a list of factual errors. Geeks, however, will start counting the number of geek obsessions they have, and half-seriously blog about it in the following way: dude, I got six out of twenty! WHO WANTS TO DATE ME??
I would have had seven out of twenty, but I gave up on MySpace months ago.
