We are geeks. You are geeks. Hell, everybody could be considered a geek these days, of some sort of another. Which means the word is kinda meaningless.
After all, “geek” was originally a slang term referring to people on the sidelines of society, and not the mainstream population.
However, despite the fact we’re all geeks, there are clearly different levels of geekiness. And we’re keen to hear all about your journeys into the geekiest of geeky territories. You geeks!
Glaringly Geeky Goings-On
We want to know, What Is The Geekiest Thing You Have Ever Done? Anything goes with this one. If it’s something geeky which you have personally done then it counts. You probably already have something in mind for this one, but for those people who are struggling, we’ll cite some examples of exceedingly geeky undertakings to try and jog your memories.
I could list writing for MakeUseOf as the geekiest thing I have ever done. Or I could instead choose going to a midnight screening of the final Harry Potter movie. Or reading the dictionary for fun. Or playing Vib Ribbon on the PlayStation One rather than Grand Theft Auto V on the PlayStation 4.
If you were Mark Zuckerberg you could choose to list creating Facebook in your dorm room at Harvard University as the geekiest thing you have ever done. Or… no, wait, that is definitely the geekiest thing that guy has ever done. And possibly the geekiest thing anyone has ever done in the history of the world.
Assuming you aren’t either Mark Zuckerberg or I, then you’ll have your own geeky story to tell, and we request you tell us rather than anyone else. Let’s face it, your significant other would only listen out of politeness, and any family members you corner at a party will likely stare at you blankly before wandering off for more alcohol. You know it’s true.
So, tell us fellow geeks. We’ll listen intently, and your geeky tale of derring-do could form part of a future MakeUseOf article in a similar vein to this one.
