Dr. von Kackensprecher strikes again!

Geekiness is not a 1D state. There are many categories of geekiness. You may be a sci-fi geek or you may be a computer geek. Or both. Geekiness is a multi-value physical and emotional condition. But not all is lost. There's no reason to be ashamed. Being geek has become popular recently, with the invent of Internet and whatnot. While in the past, geeks used to be laboratory rats, geeks today look and feel and behave pretty much like the rest of us, ordinary people, except now and then, they have these little giveaways that classify them as geeks.
