I’m in Kansas City for the holidays, so I’m getting my news from the Kansas City Star instead of the Wall Street Journal and Economist. I love this article from yesterday’s paper: “Obama to boldly go where no geek has gone before”.
Not only did I finally learn the difference between geeks, nerds, and dorks, I learned that if I keep describing myself as a dork, my chances of marriage are much decreased. The short version is as follows: “A geek is someone who has the knowledge of the geeky type stuff and has social graces. A nerd is someone who has the knowledge but not the social graces and a dork is someone who has neither.”
Obama is a geek because he is addicted to his blackberry, grew up with comic books, and loves Star Trek. He’s too cool to be a nerd because he did drugs and plays sports. I am very happy to finally have a geek coming to the White House!
