A Common Fallacy

For some reason, it has long been the notion of the rest of the world that All Geeks Are Smart. The sort of people who live for Star Wars, D&D, all the Star Trek spinoffs. Socially retarded, yes. Emotionally stunted, sure. But really good at the practical application of math and science.

It's a lie. They're not smart. Not at all.
