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.

These are not geeks. These are sad poseurs and, while I hope they recover from their injuries I sincerely hope they do not breed more of their kind.

Geeks would have figured out how to make flaming light sabers without injuring themselves if that was what they wanted to do. Of course, Geeks who want to make light sabers DON'T PUT GASOLINE IN FLOURESCENT LIGHT TUBES AND SET THEM ON FIRE IN THE FIRST PLACE.

There. I feel better now.

You have just hit on the saddest configuration of words in the English language.

Geek poseur.
