Geekdom

While visiting my family for the holidays, my dad and I got to talking about spyware. He was particularly worried about various minions tracking his Internet usage because he likes to read about secret Nazi bases in Antarctica and vast networks of underground tunnels constructed by the Reich. Anyway, I told him he should never mention this hobby to women. He looked at me, incredulously, and said only "Why not?" To me, this was really funny. I love my dad.

On that note, I'm including this blurb from The Onion:

Captain Kirk's Life Flashes Before Dying Trekkie's Eyes

MILFORD, CT—Moments before dying, car-accident victim and hardcore Star Trek fan Glenn Schaefer saw Captain James T. Kirk's life flash before his eyes. "It's all coming back to me," said Schaefer, bleeding profusely and fading from massive head trauma. "The Salt Vampires of M-113, assisting Spock through the Pon Farr, outmaneuvering Khan Singh in the Mutara Nebula, the dilithium mines of Rura Penthe. I'm even seeing portions of the animated series and the Lost Years novels." Before taking his final breath, Schaefer turned to attending medical personnel and said, "It was... fun."
